One piece bathing suits are having their moment (thanks in large part to the Kardashians)! I love them for a number of reasons. The main one being that you can binge on chips, guac and margaritas on the beach and still look good! But, for real, I have to give a shout-out to my girl Patricia Paludo (for my NASCAR and racing lovers, her hubs is Miguel Paludo) who owns Vanilla Brazil in Huntersville, NC. (It’s in Birkdale for you locals! Being a Brazil native and swimsuit beauty herself, this gal knows a thing or two about bathing suits.) She frequently visits Brazil to watch her hubby race and visit friends and family and while she is there, she finds the HOTTEST swimsuits! This shop is my go-to for great swimwear, cover ups and one-of-a-kind pieces you just don’t see anywhere else. Below is a collection of fab pieces I have gotten from this fabulous shop! Check them out on Instagram @VanillaBrazil!
