ASOS SWIM

ASOS is literally my go to site whenever I am in need of special one of a kind pieces. This time around I wanted to treat myself to some stylish swimsuits for my tropical get away with my sister and mother. Not only did these suit me perfectly for the trip but they are also versatile for pretty much any water related event. With recent weight gain I desired more coverage with certain trouble areas and figured one pieces were the way to go. When looking for bathing suits I look for a couple of things, texture, details, and shape. I prefer feminine sweetheart neck lines that accentuate my bust with added surprises like the peplum to give the illusion of a curvier bottom half. I typically steer clear of added material to my chest seeing as it can draw the eye more to this area but could not resist this beautiful ruffle frill trim on this white polka dot suit! Sometimes it’s ok to let go of your style rules and it can pay off in the end. Lastly the scuba material really helps to create structure and sculpt any problem areas like the tummy. This white suit is unfortunately out of stock for the moment but the red peplum is still available in black. I have also linked similar items that may be of interest down below.

  • Disclaimer, if you are more into comfort versus style these wouldn’t be for you! I couldn’t exactly lift my arms with the shoulder straps and the scuba material peplum sucks you in for a tight fit perhaps not working well with water sport activities. These suits are meant to be admired and sun bathed in :0)

Forever alone & Forever 21

I went out alone for the first time last night! It was sort of liberating…yet scary at the same time. Who knew you could have fun rollin with a clique of 1? It was freezing last night and the 180 lounge was hosting a fashion show by the lovely studio by keliann. I got to meet Kaylani from viva_glam_kay (from instagram). She was super sweet and gracious even though I felt like the only creeper (alone wanting a picture). Overall the night was fun/socially awkward and my outfit was a hit!. I am wearing a coral zippered jacket from target (purchased on clearance so its not available on the site anymore), polka dot bustier from forever 21 and my new houndstooth high waist leggings that Im obsessed with! (forever 21). Normally I am against wearing leggings as pants but I had to make an exception for these considering I felt like I was slaying in them (high waist & tight =super confidence booster)
