Although I was born and raised in New York--and have spent most of my adult life here--every winter the same question runs through my head: Why am I still here?! Quite simply, I hate the cold. So while most people spend January and February eyeing puffy coats and creating boards filled with scarves on Pinterest, I get busy daydreaming about beach escapes and the clothes I’d wear while there. And this year, Urban Outfitters is helping feed these fantasies, thanks to their swim collection
. With 150 styles just launched online, there are already a handful of bikinis I’m eyeing for my mid-winter beach escape. It helps that the entire lookbook, photographed by Colin Leaman, features models Tallulah Morton and Janell Shirtcliff lounging on inner tubes and against palm trees. A polka dot one-piece paired with a flower crone and hot pink Vans? Why not. Because as long as I don’t have to wear three layers on top of it and there’s a heavy dose of sunshine involved, I’m down with just about any warm-weather look.Shop the swim collection here!
