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.
