Swim Suit Issue

This may not be the SI (Sports Illustrated) swimsuit issue but it’s MY swimsuit issue!! Swimsuits can be so much fun when you finally find the right fit!!! It has taken me my whole life to know how to accept and love my body!!! I have had a child (my Frankie) which gave me stretch marks (battle wounds as I like to call them) that I am proud of!! Our bodies were meant to be different!! Ever heard ‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!?”

That doesn’t mean I don’t adore a cover up! LOL!! They are so easy to go from being on a beach towel in the sand to being in line for ice cream at the Mr.Softie truck!! I absolutely love bright popping colors or embellishments!! This way you are always styling!!

Even though some cover ups don’t always do what they were meant to, cover up, they create a nice layer to have while running to and from the beach or store!! I love to invest in the basics!! Sarongs are so versatile. Tied around the waist as a skirt or crossed around your neck as a dress!!

Look for loose fitting dresses to use for cover ups!! They will give you a fun look and versatility to take on the day!

One accessory that I can’t seem to get enough of this season (and maybe ALL seasons) is turbans!! The ease of just throwing it on for a little hair control is fantastic!! The look is classic old Hollywood!

The secret is in the accessories!! They can make a pair of linen pants look fabulous!!

Accessories are a way to enhance your look! Surfboards are in the category of summer accessories (hee hee)!! A paddle board is also on the list!! Living so close to the water and knowing what a great core work out it is I really would love to invest in one!! For now we will just match our surf board!!

When you are looking to purchase coverups consider that they should be able to take you from a backyard water fight to an afternoon of BBQ fun!! I love to use my LBS (little black suit) with a simple black skirt and change of hats. Again sometimes all you need is some new and fresh accessories to make an old suit look good!

No matter where you go this summer do it in style!!!

You don’t need to buy a whole new collection of bathing suits, focus on accessories like coverups, fun hats and jewelry!!!

Be beautiful on the inside and out!!

Black and White fashion

What’s your view on black and white fashion?! I feel that this combination is versatile and complimenting to everyones’s figure!!! Whether you stay true to a 50/50 combo head to toe or pair it with pops of your favorite colors, its a hit!!! Having a go to LBD (little black dress) or a pair of white skinny jeans, keeps you styling all season long!!

In black and white fashion EVERYTHING works together!!! Use stripes, polka dots or houndstooth….No matter the pattern it will work!! Add your favorite Pearls and crystals to create a polished look!!

Be sure to have your basics in both white and black!!! This way you can pair quickly and easily!!

Mixing large and small prints together works impeccably! I favor turning skirts into strapless dresses this time of the year! The idea that I can get several different stylish looks from one piece in my closet is a win-win!

Finding balance in an outfit can be as easy as using belts as headbands, like the houndstooth print below!

Its more than fantastic to have such an easy and quick go to for summer fashion right!? Better yet you can pair it with ANY color pop!!! Adding a colorful hat, necklace, scarf, or shoe can be the perfect pairing.

Fashion is as you know way more than black and white, however when you want to run out for a walk or a drive to your favorite ice cream spot, grab black and white!!

Your fashion can ignite happiness and inspire others!!

Do you have a Black and White go to outfit!?

I have been so impressed and inspired by all my wonderful Insta tribe, (My Instagram family) and their #getahinch !! LET’S INSPIRE TOGETHER!!!

Don’t forget……have fun!!!
