Weekly Inspo’…

This week is more of a mood board than a style inspiration piece, but our moods typically reflect our style now, don’t they? Really starting to feel that hot, sweaty, lazy summer heat. I’m really into artsy pieces and feeling all sorts of vibes lately, and finding inspiration from simple things rather than others style. Hope you like it xx

Sultry Sunday…

Summer is coming to an end here in the US, so I thought I would reminisce on some of my favourite most inspiring summer paradise pictures I’ve came across…. xo

Roxy Summer…



Top: Wrapsody Triangle Halter

Bottom: Wrapsody Cheeky Scooter

Body Chain: Ali Express

This Roxy bikini set is so gorgeous and so comfortable to wear. The salmon color literally glows in the sun and made me look so sun-kissed. It is by far my favourite bikini yet and I will highly recommend it to anyone! The back detail is simple yet gorgeous and the bottoms have good coverage yet are a bit flirty! Plus, there’s no other way I love to feel on the beach than comfortable, girly and sexy yet still have that salty surfer look. I wasn’t sure about Body Chains, so I bought a few cheap ones from Ali Express to try them out. Granted, each and every one of them fell apart after about a half an hour and were all too big in size (short torso problems :/) but none of that changed how amazing they looked on! To find some good body chains, check out my Summer Must Haves post where I featured some of the best ones I’ve found.

p.s. body chains look amazing under tanks, low neck shirts, dresses, etc.!



Modern Amusement…


Swimsuit: Modern Amusement @ PacSun (in store only)

One pieces are so underrated, and when you come across suits as amazing as this one it’s hard to understand why. Luckily, this summer they’ve been on the rise! I can across this one at PacSun. It was one of those buys that no matter my budget it was a must have! One pieces can be sexy too! Especially when they’re as cute as this!

(ps. sorry for the intensely low quality photos. I forgot my camera for the summer and my little sister has been my mini photographer with my iPhone! 😛 )
