We’ve just left a heat wave at the Jersey shore with another one expected to roll in next week, and there is no place better to be than at the beach.


This year, I found some great bathing suit separates at JC Penney. One of the places the jiggly skin is hiding after my weight loss is on my upper thighs, so I wanted a swim skirt that would give more coverage. This one is 17″ long.


I bought both the floral tankini top that I’m wearing above, as well as the animal print top below. Both have a built-in bra.


These are all St. John’s Bay pieces, which are on sale at 52% off on the JC Penney web site. (I have no association whatsoever with JC Penney — just wanted to pass along some frugal fashion!)

Today I am linking up with Tania on Wednesday’s Wardrobe.
