Hi everyone!  Recently the hubs and I were invited to an event for Swimco.  Given the chilly temps we have been having in Edmonton lately, I must admit that I have been dreaming of the sun and sand, so checking out some swimwear seemed like a fun idea!

The event showcased some of the seasons hottest trends with a fashion show, and grouped looks into three categories: play, party, and relax!  One thing I loved about the looks is that they accessorized with jewelry.  Not always something I think to do on the beach but I LOVE the way it brings a look together and adds a touch of glam!

Shopping for new swimwear can be one of those dreaded outings like finding new jeans and getting a physical! It's something we tend to leave till the last minute when we have no choice but to commit!  Usually I just walk into a store and pick my own swimwear while trying to avoid sales people at all costs.  This way I can also avoid them actually seeing me in the swimwear! This time I actually spent time with a Swimco Fit Expert and I found it to be a great experience.  My fit expert asked me what I was looking for but also offered me a ton of options I really wouldn't have considered or thought would look good on me but they did!  She also talked to me about different brands available at Swimco and introduced me to a new favorite line - Baku!  I was also able to chat with a few of the swimco reps and learned that Swimco is actually a Canadian company and is currently based out of Calgary, AB!  Go Canadian retailers!

So the next time you are planning a vacation and need a new suit, or better yet, just want to be prepared in case a vacation comes up, I highly recommend visiting your nearest Swimco and working with a fit expert to find your best beach look!

Thanks so much to Swimco for the hosting this event and for inviting me to join in the fun! Thanks to you all for reading and making it possible for me to attend things like this! And last but not least, thanks to the hubs for the joining me and for the photos! Although to be honest he did get to spend the evening looking at beautiful women in swimsuits so really I think he should be thanking me on this one!

Also don't forget there are still a few days left to enter my Winefest giveaway!
