Let's talk women's swimsuits

Fun and artistic prints have been a HUGE trend of 2022, and this coral reef one piece swimsuit is no exception. It has the most perfect, subtle, neutral print for your beach days this year, and it's super unique which is really fun, too!

Something great about shopping at Nordstrom Rack is that you'll find one-of-a-kind items, rather than more common pieces that everyone will buy up from other retailers. So if you're looking for something that's just a little different print and style than what you'll see everywhere, this suit is everything!!!

A swimsuit with a pop of color

If you're the type of person who loves a more colorful swimsuit, this gorgeous, floral print would be perfect for you! The purple & coral are fun & tropical and go together so beautifully.

This is another one piece that has really great coverage! There's a little less bum coverage on this swimsuit than the one above, but it still covers enough so that you'll be totally comfortable.

The best part? Both of these women's swimsuits are under $50!! That's a steal for great quality and unique patterns you won't find anywhere else.

THE resort tote

This isn't your tote if you're looking for something to lug all of the kids items in on a beach day – it sure IS your tote, though, for carrying your own personal things on a summer girls trip or a trip with your spouse! It's the perfect amount of space for just the things you need to carry around on vacation – wallet, earbuds, sunscreen, water bottle, book… And it's SO cute, too!

A super awesome feature is that it comes with a shoulder strap or smaller straps to carry on your arm – whichever is most comfortable for you. It also has a LOT of different pockets, which is probably the most important thing about any tote. Grab yours for 48% OFF today!

Here comes the sun(screen)

All the women's swimsuits/accessories are great, but what's really going to protect your skin from the sun is some really good sunscreen. This is the BEST way to prevent early signs of aging!

Sun Bum carries a really awesome SPF 15 sunscreen spray that's super easy to put on, and it'll still leave your body with a little bit of color if that's important to you on vacation or while you're lying out in the sun.

It's also really really important of course to make sure your face is covered! This SPF 45 face mist gives the perfect amount of coverage for the skin you want to protect the very most. Pack both of these in your tote & you're golden for any day out in the sun!
