A blistering LA heat wave over the weekend led to a marathon of pool sessions with the kiddos and multiple swimsuit changes. As I was plumbing the depths of my bathing suit drawer on Sunday afternoon for yet another dry suit I came across an old blue and white striped J.Crew tie-string bikini bottom that I've had for years (like a decade!). As I pulled it on, the side tie string snapped and my good old faithful bottom was no more. Thankfully (and just in time for the 4th!), J.Crew has a current version of it, above, along with this forever-cute polka dot style and other one pieces, all 40 percent off right now, through Wednesday. Plus, free shipping and free return. Now, back to those cannon balls!
