I’m excited to bring you this special edition of Wanderlust Wednesday: Draper James Swim.  This new collaboration of Draper James x Helen Jon is a classic collection of swimwear and available to the public starting today!

When Draper James reached out to me to see if I would like to try a few pieces to take with me to Cabo I was thrilled! I love this beautiful, strapless bandeau style one piece.  The tie-back detail and removable halter strap make it a perfect suit for lounging poolside or chasing kids at the beach or pool.  I especially appreciate the full coverage bottom.  Classic style is always my favorite style!  It was the only piece I took to Cabo that I could not include in my What I Wore to Cabo post a few weeks ago.

The Draper James x Helen Jon swim collection is fulled with high-quality, classic pieces you’ll want to wear all summer.  Helen Jon is known for quality, fit and special details.  This collaboration presents a modern twist on timeless style with the Draper James Southern aesthetic.

There are lots of other great pieces ranging from one and two piece swimsuits to coverups and sundresses perfect for your winter getaway, Spring Break or summer!   I’ve curated them in a boutique below.

In tribute to Reese’s Book Club, I’ve included a list of great “beach reads” that are perfect for Spring Break whether you are poolside or slope side.  If you’ve not ready my friend Sarah’s new book, Broken Beauty, order it stat!  It’s a page tuner as she offers an in-depth look into her life with her mom, Early-Onset Alzheimer’s and hope for lives broken by any circumstance.  A fun and decadent read is something from the Crazy Rich Asians trilogy.  I loved all three of them….where is the fourth!?!?  If you like thrillers, definitely pick up The Woman in Cabin 10.  Whoa!  I couldn’t put it down!  Also, I received several recommendations when we went to Mexico and I’ve included them as well.
