☀ Friday feels at the pool in this confetti bikini! 🌴

Happy Friday loves!!

I hope you’re all ready for some R&R this weekend- I know I am!

Today’s post features my new favorite bikini which has ALL the features that I absolutely love- the high waist cut, lace up style, stripe pattern, bright colors- everything! I’m wearing a size small in both top and bottom pieces. The top is a bit too tight because I do have a broad back, but I was worried that the medium would be too big as my cup size is small. However, the small bottom is perfect for that cheeky look! 😉 The brightly multicolored bikini screams ‘Summertime is here!’

I paired the bikini with this beautiful beach blanket which I absolutely adore!! From the pattern, print and colors, this blanket is a must for the summer season! I received several compliments on this one 🙂 I have to be honest, the material is not the best quality- it’s as thin as brown cotton, but the lightweight material makes for easy packing and a light load when you have to consider all the items required for a beach run (towel/s, sunscreen, water, book, etc.).

Of course I had to get on board the straw beach tote train as it’s all the trend for 2019! This uniquely crafted chic piece is exactly what I’ve been looking for all spring, and I finally found it at such an affordable price! The bag itself is not your regular beach bag, it’s great for small items and I’ve used it as more of a beach handbag/accessory to place sunglasses, a book, beach blanket (the lightweight material is perfect for folding into this bag!), sunscreen, wallet and keys. The tote is open and has no zipper/clasp, so do consider this if you decide to buy it. For some people, an open bag is not secure and can be the deciding factor on whether to buy or not, as weather conditions or possibility of theft is always a risk.

Finally, no trip to the beach is complete without a sun hat! I recently bought this floppy hat and I am so pleased with the coverage it provides! The black and white colors are basic which I did consider before buying, as any swimsuit can be paired with it, and I thought the label ‘Vitamin Sea’ is so clever and witty!

As always, I’ve included below the source of all items described, so be sure to check them out!

Wishing you all an amazing weekend! xo

Hello Sunshine! Feeling sunny in this bright and bold bikini 🌞

Hello my loves!

I’m sorry for being so MIA but life has been super hectic this year! I spent the first three months of 2019 studying for my Project Management Professional exam and I aced it on the first try! I intend to share a post on all the resources that I used to successfully pass such a comprehensive exam, so look out for it! 😉
Apart from achieving the PMP designation, I recently visited the Caribbean for two weddings and I’m so excited to  share the tropical outfits that I wore on the trip!

Let’s start with this bright and bold swimsuit- I’ve been loving the high waist bottoms, and this piece is perfect for a sunny day at the beach or pool! I ordered a size Small and it’s only CA$19.00 (US$14.00). I especially love the pop of yellow against this multi-color feather patterned beach blanket, which is only CA$14.00 (US$10.00).
Finally, what’s a beach day without beach sandals? Even a beach outing deserves a cute pair of slides and this footwear is PERFECT for a day out, whether on the sand or the streets. The cute decorative bow adds a feminine touch, don’t you think? Scroll down for photos and links to each item!

With summer season fast approaching, I’ll be sure to post the perfect attire for every outing! Bye for now dolls! xoxo
