Black and White Striped Bikini + The Best View of Chicago

July 6, 2018

This black and white striped bikini has been sitting in my closet since January. Seriously. I ordered it on an amazing J. Crew sale, thinking the opportunity would magically appear for me to wear it. Nope. I live in a city full of unpredictable weather and cancelled not one, but two, trips to Miami in a six month period. Needless to say, when I found out that I was staying at the Radisson Blu Aqua Chicago with both a rooftop pool and hot tub, I was beyond ecstatic.

Ā  This swimsuit is completely different from anything I own, and I’m obsessed with it. Every time I see it, I envision it being worn on the beach in the South of France or something.

I paired the swimsuit with these fun swirly sunglasses to keep the retro throwback going. I’ve been loving the seersucker swimwear trend lately, and this swimsuit is no exception.

The rooftop pool at the Radisson Blu Aqua made for not only the perfect backdrop, but was also the perfect spot to relax after a long day in Chi! The view alone was incredible. Just another reason why the Radisson Blu Aqua is the perfect spot to pamper yourself if you’re on a single girl’s trip.

{It was cloudy, but I was wearing my sunglasses because they match the bikini. Am I turning into *that* New Yorker? Oops.}

 

Thank you so much to the Radisson Blu Aqua Chicago for gifting my stay and allowing me to use your hotel as my backdrop this weekend! As always, all opinions are my own. This really is my favorite hotel right now.
