Now that it’s officially spring and nearly April, festival season is among us. As much as I love a desert vacay, I’m not really into the actual music festivals. But I do love a good pool party, looking at pictures of celebs who go to the fests and of course the fashion. Something about them really makes you want to channel your inner hippie and pile on anything boho and I love it! I’ve partnered with Swimspot to bring you a fun festival fashion appropriate look whether you’re hitting the actual events or just want to look the part at your own pool. continue reading
I feel like we’re finally making some strides with planning. I’m in the process of interviewing florists and we have our photographer locked in… naturally my brain is focused on engagement pictures. I’ve been brainstorming locations, outfits, etc for our shoot next month and thought I’d share my vision. Below are the two outfits I’m seriously considering, the first is a classic look and the second is more boho beach.
Did you take engagement pictures? What are your tips? I’d love to hear! continue reading
With the official start of summer being just one week away; I thought I’d give a peak into my beloved beach bag. The contents vary a bit from year to year but basically this is what I’ve been bringing with me to the beach and pool for years. Take a look!
Aside from the essentials (sunscreen, towel, hat, glasses) I throw in a travel size conditioner to dab on my ends so they don’t dry out. I also love doing this after I swim. Also a lip balm with SPF is a must! And a fun coverup is caps it off in case the day changes direction and I end up somewhere a bikini dress code. continue reading
Even though I didn’t go away, I feel like it’s the last day of vacation because this is the last of my Beach Week posts! I am also excited to share my Q&A with Swim Spot.
Yesterday I shared the Ella Moss sun tile print triangle top with the chevron tie bottom. Today’s look is similar but a little different and I love how bold it is! I’m surprised to say but I think this is my first black and white bathing suit which is a shock to me because I love that color combo so much. continue reading
When I received the package of swimwear to style from SwimSpot I was immediately drawn to this Ella Moss sun tile triangle top. The bohemian prints are just so pretty and perfect for a day in the sun. Like I mentioned the other day, I am known for having mismatched bikini tops and bottoms and loved how the chevron print bottoms complemented the ties in the top but didn’t look matchy-matchy. When you think about it, a two piece bathing suit is an outfit – no different than a shirt and pants combo. Have fun mixing and matching! continue reading
