Whether we’re ready or not, summer is here! Sometimes, shopping for pool and beach attire can be a bit daunting, so Columbia Home visited some local boutiques to help you find your style for the summer. Lo & Behold, Cha Boutique, Girl Boutique and Dillard’s all have great selections for you to choose from depending on your personal style! We’ve put together four outfits, mixing and matching swimwear, accessories and cover-ups to give you some inspiration, whether you’ll be in the water, watching the kids play, reading poolside or taking a stroll on the beach. Don’t forget the sunscreen!
