Vintage&Modern: The Maillot

Are you all set to unofficially kick off summer? Well, I most certainly am, more than ready actually - I have been biting at the bit to start barbecuing, planting and enjoying limitless sunny hours outside.  To kick off the holiday weekend, I thought I would start out with a new series Vintage&Modern, in which I pair my love for vintage fashion to items that you can find in store today. I am starting the series off with the maillot, otherwise known as chic and sophisticated swimwear.  I hope that everyone has a safe and fun holiday here in the U.S, I will be back here Tuesday!


  1. This is such a cute cut for a suit! Honestly, I haven't worn a one piece since middle school, but I love how fashion-forward they are these days!

  2. I love vintage-inspired beachwear! I'm a bikini girl through and through, but sometimes I have to resist buying one-pieces because they are too cute!

  3. Is a very nice swimwear, I'd wear it also as bodysuit with maxi skirt!:) Enjoy your holiday and long weekend Alison! Kisses! xo

  4. I always admire one piece costumes but prefer to wear a bikini particularly if it's very hot Great choice of colours here.

  5. I love every single one of these suits! They are so cute and classy. I'm loving the retro trend.
