Katie Ermilio’s Summer EssentialsJuly 22, 2014

When we first saw fashion designer Katie Ermilio’s clothes, we knew she would be our kinda gal. Her simple tailoring and feminine silhouettes drew us in immediately (plus we knew she had great taste because she wears Marysia SWIM!)


We asked Katie some questions about her summer essentials and she delivered. Enjoy reading about her must-haves, and check out her Resort 2015 trunkshow on Moda Operandi today.

Summer CocktailsJuly 14, 2014


Summer is in full-swing and one of my favourite things to do in the evening is lounge with my family and friends outside on my patio. I thought I would share some yummy cocktail recipes that won’t sabotage your bikini body. Feel free to indulge in one (or two…I won’t tell!) without fear of not looking fab in your Marysia bikini the next day!

These are some of my new favourite summer pieces that I packed for my July 4th trip back east. Kind of in love with my new white crop top-so much that I even ordered another in blue! I hope you all had a nice weekend and got to spend time with your friends and family like I did.

Have you seen? Two majorly cool fashion girls were recently spotted wearing my designs…the Antibes bikini, to be exact.  Lupita looks super toned in the white and Rachel is super preggo in the black! It’s so exciting to see girls like these finding my brand :)

Have a great rest of your weekend just had to share!

Perfect Mother’s Day GiftsMay 8, 2014


I like what LLL (look linger love) had to say about Mother’s Day…that as mothers, all we care about is the well-being of our children. That is the key to a mother’s happy heart…

…But if someone so chooses to get us a little ‘something’-something’, we won’t turn it down! So here is a guide to the daddies of our happy little families.

Announcing our new collaboration!May 6, 2014


I couldn’t be more happy to share the exciting news: you can now shop our collaboration with Hatch collection!

It happens to be perfect timing as well, because both the bikini and maillot would make great Mother’s Day gifts for the hot little mamas in your life.

And if YOU are the hot little mama? You deserve to treat yourself too!

Photography Roundup: Leila JeffreysApril 30, 2014

If you follow me on Pinterest then you have probably noticed that I’m a bit obsessed with adding art to my collection. Clic Gallery/Bookstore/General Store was just around the corner from my place in NYC and it’s where I bought Tola her amazing 1st birthday present. The wonderful owner Christiane Celle is also the founder of another old neighbourhood store – Calypso St. Barth.

Anyway, it was at Clic that I first spotted these beautiful photographs by artist Leila Jeffreys:

Sandal obsession re-blog from LOLAGLITTER…February 27, 2014



It’s a new year, and while everyone is spending these first weeks of 2014 rethinking their goals and pondering their aspirations for the next 12 months, I am thinking about my feet.

I like to think that since I try to reflect and better myself year round (ha!), I’m exempt from all the New Year’s Resolution hullabaloo. And so, as I mentioned, I have decided to use all this extra thinking time to obsess over Resort 2014′s amazing Birkenstock/shower shoe inspired slides:

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY EVERYONE!  We are having a great time here in Costa Rica which makes this holiday a little bit irrelevant but nonetheless,  pinterest had an abundance of pink and red images I found myself pinning.  I say irrelevant because there is nothing we need more at the moment.  SS14′ collection has pink in it and you can pre-order it now!  I took one sample on vacation with me to test it out so I’ll report back on how it looks with a tan and beach:)  My hubby and I booked a couples massage here at the BAMBOO SPA so that will be a nice end to this magical day.

Hope you have a great Valentine’s day with your love today and always!

Costa RicaFebruary 10, 2014


It’s been too long since we’ve been on a proper warm weather vacation…this snow storm after snow storm thing is getting old. We are off to Costa Rica to my friend’s place called Florblanca. It’s my favorite place on earth really….I have not been to a place that had it all..(for us at least)….so I’m super excited to go back to this paradise. I plan to ride a horse on the beach on my b-day and surf with my husband on Valentine’s day…follow my Instagram feed if you want to see.
I hope you too get to escape the cold this winter break and if not I will send many many warm vibes your way.

Tola’s 1st Birthday!February 5, 2014


 My sweet baby is 1 today!!!! ONE!!!!!!!!!!!! I know everyone says it but WHERE DID THE TIME GO?????  With a second child I sure did enjoy this time better as I was less of a freak…freaking out about every little thing as a first time parent is natural but you miss being able to actually enjoy all the little moments…so this time I really tried to take it slow and enjoy my little babe.

There are so many things about having a little baby that are so lovely and I’ll never get back but having more sleep nowadays sure is nice!
I’m so proud of this little gal, she was born in New York City  on a snowy night and rode a yellow taxi home!  I feel guilty about living my dream sometime and not having the green grass or the big bath for my children but they don’t seem to care…at least for now my girls love living in NYC in our 3rd floor walk up!
 Here is the inspiration of my decorations for the b-day party we’re having this weekend…hope to get a great shot so we can all look at it later and reminisce.
Happy Birthday Tolusia Heyward Reeves!!!  We love you!   You are truly out little sunshine!
Do you have any other cool ideas for a b-day party decor?  Please share!

BUMBY IS BACK!January 21, 2014

After a two season hiatus from BUMBY (mini Marysia SWIM) I decided to bring back just 3 styles. Two similar one pieces for girls (scallop and zig-zag edge) and one european style boy short.  The girl’s suits are reversible!  The leopard reverses to pink, The flamingo print reverses to either black or pink, and the grey reverses to white.  We are working on getting them added to our online shop but in the meantime I wanted to show you these beautiful photographs taken by my talented friend Gray Benko  I want to give a special thank you to my  friends Gray, Chassity and Jenny for letting us steals their kids on a not so warm january day in Sullivan’s beach,SC. They kids did an amazing job don’t you think? My girls are here too..can you spot them?

Detox Diet part 1January 6, 2014


Happy New Year week 2! Now that we are back home and a new fresh week is starting, I decided it’s time to stop procrastinating and get my body and health back. It’s one month before my baby’s 1st birthday and I’m still 10 or even 12 lbs away from what I was before my pregnancy. I feel so much better when I eat well and once I stick to it for a while it’s not too hard to continue so here we go…..what would Gwennie do?

If you’ve followed this blog for awhile you’ll know I’m a Gwyneth Paltrow fan and I like her blog and books.
She just posted a new 3 DAY WARMING WINTER DETOX which can’t be as bad as the 7 day one I did in the past. My plan is to do the 3 day to ease into things and then do the harder 7 day one in a couple weeks maybe. We have a tropical vacation planned and I can’t look bad in my own swimsuit you know? What kind of swimwear designer would I be???? ugh
So I’m printing out this body image and a countdown to VACA…I have exactly 38 days to make this happen…I know I can I know I can:)

I’ll be back to tell you how it went. Below is a cheat sheet of the most important things to avoid along with the menu that can be altered in so many ways (they list a bunch of recipes so it’s a sure thing something will sound appetizing to you).
