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.

Jacket: c/o Windsor
Scarf: H&M [similar]
Sweater: c/o Windsor
Jeans: c/o LuLu*s [similar]
Bag: c/o Fawn Design
Boots: c/o Khombu

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!

Swim Top: c/o Coral Reef Swim
Shorts: c/o Billabong
Sunglasses: similar
Bracelets: c/o Color By Amber

Salty Hair.
Coconut Oil.
Big Waves.
Hot Sun.

The ingredients for a perfect summer day.

I'm heading back to Hawaii in a couple weeks for a short trip and I am just counting down the days until I'll be on the beach, soaking up the golden rays and ocean air. Every day lately has been feeling more and more like summer and I feel like once I'm back home it'll officially be summer vacay!

I'm making sure my suitcase will be stocked with the best beachwear possible and that includes the cutest cover-ups! The one I'm wearing today is from Coral Reef Swim--the same place my swimsuit from Friday's post is from (you can see a peak of the suit in today's outfit). Not only do they have the best swimsuits, they have an awesome collection of cover-ups as well! From kimonos to ponchos to dresses--they have it all. Be sure to check them out for your summer wardrobe needs ASAP!

I hope everyone had an amazing Memorial Day weekend and has a sorta easy time getting back to reality! :)
