40% off j.crew swimwear only today!

J.Crew is currently holding a surprise sale for 5 days with each day being different featured items. Yesterday was shorts, but today is selected swimwear and other stuff for the beach or pool (selected cover-ups, hats, sandals, tote bags, sunblock, etc.) with promo code DAYTWO. The sale ends tonight at 11:59 eastern time. There’s no risk since there is free shipping and free returns on all women’s swim through July 6th.

I thought I’d take advantage of the mix & match trend for bikinis, so I ordered 3 different colors of the same bikini top and bottom in whatever was available in my size. You should order sooner than later, sizes were selling out as I was online shopping earlier this morning.

I love string bikinis because it’s custom sizing for each piece and this bikini top ties two different ways in the back. You can tie it the way it’s shown in the stock photo below or you can simply tie the shoulder straps at the back of your neck like any other string bikini top. I also love the little cut-out detail in the front on the bikini top, it’s something different from the usual. But the best are the vibrant neon colors, which will look so amazing with a golden summer tan.


Front of Bikini top & Bikini bottom, both in neon yellow.


Back of Bikini top & Bikini bottom, both in neon yellow.


Bikini bottom in neon pink.


Bikini bottom in neon papaya.

Post-discount, the top nets to $26.40 and the bottom is $24. I ordered both the small and extra small, where available, to see which fits better. There are a lot of cute cover-ups on sale for this promotion, but I have so many already and the precise fit of a cover-up is not as critical as it is for a swimsuit.

Are you going to shop the J.Crew DAYTWO sale? Do you do the mix & match trend for your swim tops and bottoms? You could also do the same for a tankini top and bikini/hipster bottoms as a fun alternative.

Enjoy your Tuesday, xx!
