Very much looking forward to shopping The Shops at Target. Wish me luck in collecting my favorites. My top shop is shaping up to be: The Webster from Miami.

I recently visited the adorable and tropical swimwear store Popina at their Pearl District location. Not only does the store offer an awesome assortment of swimwear from various designers in varying styles and colors but it also offers the feeling of being in a tropical paradise. The lighting design and overall interior are perfect, they really beckon feelings of the beach, I think I even left with sun kissed cheeks.

I fell in love with a few suits, especially the below Vitamin A number that is retro inspired and flattering. What I did not love was the price-tag: $220. So with that I took down the style name and went home to do some internet research. Sure enough I found the exact same suit online for $110. Much more budget friendly. But with that said the store is delightful and what is really special is that Popina offers custom made suits by their own label that are affordable and perfect for the beach or lounging poolside.
