Before I say anything else, you need to know that the code POMPOMPARTY will make these pom pom beauties ONLY $8 each. And they are regularly $30 each. WHOAH. (You also need to know that I got a spray tan in preparation for this post. You’re welcome.)
Back to the scarves.
Think teacher gifts for end of the year (I know it’s only March, BUT $8!), think birthday gifts, think party favors, think Bachelorette party, think pretty much ANYTHING! #becauseeightdollars
I showed these to y’all last year, but my love for them hadn’t blossomed yet.
I mean, I thought they were cute and all…but I hadn’t realized their full potential. And then this happened.
And I’m sorry…….but DARLING.
You can find the suit at Nordstrom (I know many of you are loyal to Nordstrom because of their free shipping and customer service), but it’s also at J Crew! The swimsuit is incredibly comfortable and covers everything it needs to. No cheeky bottoms! Hooray! The material is a bit more cloth like than spandex-y, and the ruching is SO flattering. It looks cute both with and without the halter strap, and the cut of the legs isn’t too high at all. I ordered the size 6 and it fit perfectly (I’m a 4 in jeans, but I need room in the chest area). Actually – I’m updating this to say I’m going to try the size 4. The 6 is a little baggy in the rear, but I’m afraid the 4 might be too tight in the chest. I’m going to order it and see!
And check out these flip flops! If you click over to them you will see that they have a bit of a platform. Here’s what the site has to say: Take casual comfort up a level with this biomechanically engineered version of a classic flip-flop featuring ultra-lightweight iQUISHION micro-bubble foam cushioning, built-in arch support and a flexible, slip-resistant sole. They only come in 1/2 sizes, so I sized up to a 7. I typically size up a 1/2 size in flip flops when they only come in whole sizes.
If you love the tote, make sure to use the code STMTSAVE10 for 10% OFF your Barrington order! And if you are a loyal Barrington shopper, you need to go check out their new spring patterns and monograms!
Okay…..so now that I’ve gushed about the other parts of the outfit…it’s time to see this pom pom scarf/sarong/ cover up thing in action.
LOOK HOW CUTE IT IS AS A COVER UP! You can tie it several different ways, but my favorite way is like this. I just knot it once (or twice) kind of off to the side in the front….and VOILA! You’ve got yourself a super cute and easy cover up! Not shown, it also comes in a light blue and a taupe color.

I’m going to show you each color by itself as well. As you can see, I’m wearing the black here kind of long in front.
And if you fold it over a bit before you knot it, you can make it shorter! I think the white might be my favorite. Pay attention to my gold wire palm drop earrings too. They are light and breezy and go with anything. If you’re getting any scarves, you should probably just throw these earrings in your cart too (because the shipping is just a flat $6, no matter how full your cart is)!
The blue is so bright and happy!
You certainly can’t go wrong with the pink either.
You can also wear it tied around your waist like a sarong and it’s really cute (but I thought I was showing a little too much boob to show it that way on the blog! ha!). Or you can take both ends, cross them in front of your neck, and tie them behind your neck like I have below!
If you are in the market for a new swimsuit, here are some other options for you:
And just in case you aren’t down with wearing it as a cover up, it’s super cute with shorts and a tee too! You know, worn as an actual scarf. 😉

Here I am in 3 of the colors with my favorite black tee and a great pair of denim shorts. I size up to a medium in these tees because I like them slouchy, and I wear my regular 27 in the shorts. If between sizes, I would suggest sizing down.

So, that’s it for today! And don’t forget, the code POMPOMPARTY will get you these scarves for $8 each!!!!

See you back here on Friday, ladies!
