No matter what your body type, rejoice! One-piece swimsuits are THE trendiest cut of swimwear happening this summer…and when you think about it, its really no huge surprise…with the huge 90s influence on fashion the past few seasons, isn’t it only natural that our favorite “Baywatch” bathing suit style from the 90s reached our shores?! (that’s BaYwatch with a Y– decades before “BaEwatch” became a thing …ew I feel so old but so grateful to not be a teenager currently lol).  Also, there really isn’t much more style-wise that you can do with a bikini– we’ve seen and done it all: string, triangle, halter, bandeau…it just makes sense for the fashion world to dip into something we all would have considered ew, gross, dorky or questioned whether our moms would have worn or would still wear or associate with kickflips and a 100 meter butterfly…

To be clear, the one piece suits I’m loving currently are very 90s inspired…not pinup-y or cutesy or girly really…more sporty/sexy, with high cut legs and low cut tops with a super low back…and totally flattering no matter what your body type!

This “Island Vibes” suit I have on here is from Revolve Clothing, but they are currently sold out of this style.  The designer is “Private Party”, and I linked the original suit I’m wearing plus a few other cute ones I like in the same cut from this designer as well.  The fit of these Private Party suits is ON POINT, I promise! I also chose some other one piece styles that I’m currently loving– the brand Solid and Striped is HUGE right now as well…prepare to see these simple, well made, superbly cut suits on lots of famous peeps and your friends alike (as well as all over Instagram!)

Happy one-piece shopping!

xo, ❤

Update the Mix: Mirrored Sunglasses

about
Hi guys– happy Sunday! Since it’s FINALLY spring (ish), and the sun is shining (ish), I figured that lots of us are already breaking out the sunglasses– and looking to update our collections of sunnies.  Look no further than mirrored sunglasses if you want to try something new this spring/summer– I promise, these guys will make everything feel super current and new.  The reflective nature of these sunglasses can be a little jarring at first– like many fashion risks that feel uncomfortable at first– but once you get used to them, you will LOVE how they bring color and metallic shine to your looks.  I can’t wear my Wildfox Couture sunnies pictured above without smiling.  In my Spring Trends post, I promised shopping guides for each of my spring fashion “must haves”…below you’ll find my favorite mirrored sunglasses on the market currently, for all price points, starting at $60!
Cheers to sunny days ahead!

Mix List: Spring Wishlist

As this current snowstorm dumps another 8 inches on New York, even I, the unremitting snow-lover, am thinking Spring.  I already picked up a few of the items on my Spring must-have list– since I’m so OVER my Sorels and scarves, I needed to get a jump start on some new Spring items! The Rebecca Minkoff marble clutch and Wildfox mirrored sunnies are anxiously awaiting the first sunny day brunch of the season!
A full Spring 2015 Trend Report on what you’ll need to update your own mix is coming this weekend…
