Salty Mermaid, Shop for a Cause
Salty Mermaid was created in 2016 by Jessica, a woman who loves bikinis and had a dream to help both animals and people live their best lives. She created her swimwear with some amazing causes in mind, the Rhinos and the Rainforest. (Click link for more details) Of course, she designed a collection with South Africa in mind, which is wear my suit comes from. Of course I picked Bohemian Queen Bikini, haha. I am far from bohemian but always a queen.
My first impression of the actual swimsuit was the incredible softness of the fabric. I dislike bathingsuits that are too stiff or rub too hard in some areas if ya know what I mean. This one is super comfortable and very flattering. The colors are so bright, it just makes me happy when I wear it. Also, here's a secret, the bottoms are reversible to purple. I love the braided sides of the bottoms as well. These come in brazilian or cheeky, I went with the cheekys :) You can mix and match like mine with the solid bottoms or top, and patterned. I prefer going with one of them being solid, too much patter isn't for me but to-each-their-own, which is why this site is great. You can match so many tops and bottoms differently. It's really fun, you can play and style your swimsuit literally all day.
I have gotten so many compliments on it and while that makes me feel great, the causes this suit supports make me feel even better. I am an animal girl, and I love giving back to this beautiful world. Stock up just in time for Memorial Day weekend.
Hey there fashionistas, how's your summer going so far? I say summer because in Florida it's been summer for months already, and it is HOT! I have spent some weeks vacationing which in return, now I have a few extra LBs taking up residence in my mid-section. Oh well. In my 30s I have learned to love my body, be healthy but be accepting. I will never have a flat stomach, ever, but I love being curvy and I embrace it.
That being said, shapewear has definitely become a fan fave for a lot of us out there. Let's put the bag stigma about shapewear to rest, it is not about hiding our curves it's about embracing and enhancing our best assets. I discovered Kiwi Kurves and fell in love with their shapewear and their mission.
I have been really into fall/winter clothes this year since I will be heading north. I feel like I have gotten so used to the comfies, I don't even know why I buy dress clothes anymore. Haha. I think I have worn jeans like twice in the last 5 months. I live in joggers, tanks, tees and workout gear. You know what I love about fall clothes, sweaters are comfy and also dressy!! So I went on Amazon and made a little look book below of my fave fall finds under $50.Â
Yes they are BACK! I love a good skort. I am a huge fan of the denim short, it's my go-to day-time oufit like everyday but I L O V E that a skort can easily make this look a bit dressier (or not). It's super versatile so I am sharing 6 transitional ways to wear a skort for fall 2020 featuring the "Be Mike Skort" from Shop Just Jadi.
