sunbain & swimwear360: swimwear heaven

As many of you know, I recently went on a girls trip to Mexico with my mom and sisters, which was SO fun and I’m already ready to go back! The first thing you shop for when heading to the beach is typically a swimsuit and/or coverup. Like most girls, I kind of dread swimsuit shopping with every fiber in my being. This year I’ve opted out of the dreaded fitting room fiascos with bathing suits and have just shopped for mine online – thanks to sunbain.com and swimwear360.com. (Warning: you can easily spend hours upon hours on both of these websites!)

I really love both of these websites for swimsuit shopping for two reasons:

  1. They both have so many options. Often times when I go to department stores or specialty swimwear shops, I feel like I have about 50 choices, at the most. These websites have hundreds and hundreds of options – so many different styles and cuts and prints.
  2. Both Sunbain and Swimwear360 have brands and options that you don’t see everywhere. There’s nothing more embarrassing than showing up at the country club pool, twinning with the girl on the lounge chair next to you. I thought both these websites had really unique brands, with really reasonable pricing.

What are some of your favorite online places to shop for swimsuits?! I hope you love Sunbain & Swimwear360 as much as I do! xx

easy summer day

One of my favorite thing about summer is living in a good pair of denim cutoffs. 99% of the time I am total bargain shopper – I always wait for a sale or try & spend the least amount of money as possible. I had been eyeing these denim cutoffs for months now though and I figured, if I’ve wanted them for that long…they’d be worth the money. And let me tell you, they are! I just got them about two weeks ago and have already worn them at least 5 times.

I’m also a huge believer in adding things to your wardrobe that you can wear multiple places, and pair with several different pieces. Which is why I am loving this off-the-shoulder top. I dressed mine down with cutoffs, but it could just as easily be dressed up with a great pair of white skinnies or even white flare linen pants! This is a great top for a nice brunch or wedding shower, but could just as perfectly be worn on the beach with cut-off shorts and sandals!

coral + mint

I’ve noticed recently how much my taste changes year after year. Michael and I recently bought a house and the style of home decor I liked 3 years ago is completely different than it is now. (I’m totally out of my burlap phase). The clothes I picked out to wear for our engagement pictures a year and half ago, I would probably not pick now (riding boots with a midi dress? what?). One small thing though that’s stayed consistent for me is my love for coral + mint. I love it in decorating, I love it in clothes…I love that it’s bright and fun and shows off your tan!

This coral dress I’m sharing with ya’ll today truly is the perfect summer dress. The gold braided straps make it easy to dress down with a pair of espadrilles, but it would also be perfect for a summer wedding.

take me somewhere sunny

I’m leaving for Cancun this Saturday for a girls trip and can HARDLY wait! In honor of this upcoming beach getaway, I’ve rounded up 8 adorable dresses & rompers (all under $100) that are perfect for summer vacations! I also gave you the shoes to go with it :). I love all these sandals because they are so versatile – could easily be worn with maxi dresses, cut offs, rompers…you name it. You can hover over this image to get links to each item!

casual friday

Don’t get me wrong – I love getting dressed up as much as the next girl. But, for a special occasion. My go-to style is easy and laid back and comfy. Which is why I love this mint + ivory tie front blouse paired with distressed skinny jeans! (PS – These jeans are absolutely my favorite pair of jeans I’ve ever owned. Such a good purchase!)
