This post is long overdue. The first post in this series was about unboxing my first pair of Tieks. In that post I promised to do a walking test in these shoes and let you know where they stood.
And walk I did..
I have never stayed at a Red Roof Inn before, but when it was the end result of a Priceline auction I was a little nervous. I read some horror stories and built up some dread which was allayed when I saw the location I was visiting had newly renovated rooms that looked quite nice. I just needed a bed for a couple nights so it didn’t need to be too fancy anyways.
Birkenstocks have been popular among travelers for quite some time, but the classic style was not appealing to me. In recent years, however, Birkenstock has branched out into a number of great looking styles. I decided to try the Gizeh model for my first pair. Yes, I said first pair. As in I can totally see myself getting more Birks in the future..
I finally did it. The insane. The unheard of. The completely uncharacteristic. After several years of staring, drooling, trying to choose a color.... I finally broke down and ordered the outrageously priced luxurious leather ballet flats -- Tieks.
Most people are not especially interested in modest swimwear, but if you are you know how difficult it can be to track down. Even a one piece is often cut in multiple ways that can make it quite showy.
I have lovedswim skirts as an option, but it can be annoying how the flowy skirt portion floats up to the surface of the water and besides, some of the skirted parts aren't even long enough to cover anything, but are more of a decoration!
If you want the convenience of two pieces with modesty and functionality I recommend the swim short... or swim pant? or swim Capri?
I wasn't sure how this would go so I ordered 3 options from Amazon that had free returns:
I found all three to be suitable options (pun intended)... :p
But I decided I liked the weight of the material best on the two from Private Island Hawaii Brand.
It took me a while of deliberating. But since I plan to wear these with tankinis that adjust to swim dress length, I decided I liked the longer length ones. These also give me the option to easily go from pool and beach to shopping, traveling, touring, eating, etc without totally screaming "Hey Y'all, I'm in swimwear!"
If you're looking for a modest, comfortable, and versatile swimwear option I think this style is a great bet!
