Take a hike!
And I mean that in a nice way, not the "go away" way... ;)

The weather has been soooo beautiful this summer (maybe a little too beautiful, some days I'm close to getting heat stroke)! It's also flown by so fast and I'm starting to panic that I won't be able to do all the things on my summer bucket list before it's over! So the other day in the midst of all the craziness that is every day, I made Connor and I (and Samson) drop everything and go on a short little hike up the mountains. It wasn't a crazy, strenuous one or anything, just a small one that let us enjoy the view and get some fresh air! I also got to break in my Khombu Softshell Trail Shoes that are perfect for going on walks and short hikes! They were super comfy and added a little pop of purple to my outfit (because my outfits these days seriously need help in the color department haha).

So if you feel like you're watching summer go by in a flash and haven't even touched your summer bucket list, just take a break and have a little fun! It doesn't even have to be a long one. Go on a bike ride. Walk along a lake or river. Go get some shave ice! All of those things could take 30 minutes or less and I promise you, you'll feel 1000% better after. :)

Yay for summer!


Favorite, ever.

Swimsuit: c/o Albion Fit
Sunglasses: c/o Woodzee
Bracelets: c/o Color by Amber

Growing up I've never been a big fan of one pieces.
I feel like they were never flattering on me and I could never find any cute ones. They made me look flatter than I already was and didn't give me a figure at all. I felt like I was supposed to be on my way to swim laps at the pool than off to spend a fun day at the beach. It was just no bueno.

It wasn't until my 20s that I felt like a new wave and trend of one pieces took over the fashion world. Suddenly I started seeing cute, adorable swimsuits all over the scene! I began to sprout a newfound love for one pieces and the companies that actually took their time to make flattering, modest swimsuits! One of those companies happen to be a local well-known favorite, called Albion Fit. Albion Fit has THE cutest prints of swimsuits that come in the biggest variety of styles! They have one pieces, tankinis, crops, high-waisted bottoms, cutouts, and much much more! Their swimsuits make you want to wear modest suits because they're cute and not just to cover up.

The Weekender swimsuit I'm wearing in today's post in a faaaaaaavorite of mine by far. I've been really into the halter style of swimsuits lately so I loved that they carried a one piece in that specific style! Besides the halter top, there are just so many details about this suit that make it so top notch. The suit cuts in at the waist to give you a super flattering figure and lets you show off your curves. The back has criss-cross straps that help the suit fit nice and snug while also giving off a fun, flirty vibe. The entire suit is fully lined, comes with a built-in shelf bra (to help those less fortunate like moi), aaaaaaand the booty has coverage. Can a suit GET any more perfect than that???

Besides swimsuits, Albion Fit has workout wear and casual wear (they just released some adorable rompers) that are just as classy as their suits. If you haven't given them a look yet, you are definitely missing out!

I hope you all are having an amazing week so far!
ps. these photos were taken while I was in Mexico... 4 MONTHS AGO.
I fail at blogging. I fail at life.

Love you all.

Soooooooo these photos are a MAJOR throwback.
6 months to be exact..... whoops!

In all the craziness that was 2016, this outfit somehow got lost among my Japan posts and never ended up seeing the light of day--till now! But you know what they say: Better late than never. :) Even if it is 90 degree weather outside and this outfit no longer is relevant to the current season or trends...

These photos were taken in Arashiyama--one of my favorite places we visited while we were in Japan! It was the same day we visited the Monkey Park and Bamboo Forest AND rode around the area on bikes! I would highly, highly recommend visiting there if you ever find yourself in that neck of the woods, especially if the weather is warm! The scenery was drop dead gorgeous and there was always something around to do or explore. Just looking at these pictures makes me want to go back already! Perhaps next year? We shall see...

Since I'm throwing it back with these pics I might as well leave this vlog here for you guys as well! ;) It's our adventure from the day we visited Arashiyama. Feel free to binge watch all my Japan vlogs as well as subscribe if you want to say updated with my videos! (I post every week, woo!)

Have a great week, friends!
