Can you guys believe that Memorial Day weekend is just a few days away?! To kickoff summer, Lands’ End has declared that today (May 23rd) is National Swimsuit Day and are offering 50% off their entire swim collection plus free expedited shipping for Friday delivery to guarantee that you’ll get your swimsuit before the long holiday weekend! How awesome is that?

Finding a suit that fits just right, can be quite the difficult task and feel really daunting, but luckily Lands’ End offers assistance online with their Swim Finder, which is an interactive tool to help discover the best swimsuits based upon body shape and preferences, while also providing tips on to how to take proper swimsuit measurements. The brand also has swim fit experts on-hand, whether you prefer calling or using their live chat, they are ready to help you find the perfect-fitting swimsuit! Personally, I always struggle to find a two piece that fits both my top and bottom since I run larger in the bust area but if I aim to fit the top, the bottoms tend to run too big. Luckily, at Lands’ End, you can mix and match the collections to find a suit that is juuuuust right for your body shape!

So to celebrate swimsuits, warmer weather and long weekends, I teamed up with the brand to show you four of my favorite suits and how you can easily transition your swimwear from the beach to brunch (preferably with a mimosa waiting) in just minutes. First up, this cute striped one piece!

Striped Swimsuit

I love mixing and matching patterns and really like how these printed shorts look paired with this classic striped one piece. I kept the rest of the look fairly neutral to keep the focal point on the suit and then draped a chambray button down over my shoulders as a finishing touch.

Floral Swimsuit

For this floral and feminine two-piece I wanted to draw out the green in the otherwise pink and white pattern, so I grabbed my dark olive utility shirt to use as a “cover up” and then went more casual by slipping on my favorite oversized denim shorts, which actually used to be my Dad’s work jeans! Then I brought in a little pattern play with my striped espadrilles but kept the rest of the look pretty classic with a traditional Panama hat, cognac leather tote and tortoise shell sunnies.

Palm Leaf Swimsuit

This might be my favorite suit next to the striped one. How cute is the palm leaves?! I integrated pattern play once again, and love how the blue pastel stripes compliment the muted pink and green leaf print. I wanted to keep this outfit light and bright so I opted for white sandals and a canvas tote, and topped the whole look off with my favorite woven straw hat and John Lennon-esque sunglasses.

Paisley Swimsuit

I went for a slightly dressier style when styling this paisley swimsuit and wore these fuchsia shorts that I felt matched well with the pattern, and really pulled out the pretty purple color. Then instead of draping the chambray shirt over my shoulders like before, I decided to tie it up at the waist, which helps defines my shape and creates a nice juxtaposition next to the flowy material of the shorts.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and let me know if you have any questions! xo

When you guys think of overalls, do you immediately associate them with a casual look, maybe paired with a t-shirt and sneakers? That type of outfit is of course totally cute and very easy to throw together, but I wanted to take this black denim pair up a notch, style them a little differently and show you that you can most definitely dress them up! Read on to hear why this outfit works…

Lately I’ve been living in overalls, and in light of my two most recent posts (click here and here), I thought it would be fun to dig up past posts to how I styled these same black overalls over the years. The funny thing is, I am wearing a different striped top in each of these looks, one year apart, unplanned of course. I guess I am a creature of habit…

I think they are meant to literally be tied in a bow, but I have never felt like that look fit my style, so I decided to tweak it a bit…

SHAPE_6

I am not the biggest fan of tight fitting clothing as I am sure many of you know…I basically live in boyfriend jeans and turtlenecks. But that said, I do like the idea and look of body-con skirts when worn and styled correctly.

SHAPE_5Case in point, this ankle length, super fitted ribbed skirt with a big slit up the thigh. I scooped it up the other week when I was in Zara and decided to challenge myself by wearing it with something other than an oversized baggy sweater that would totally hide my shape. I started by wearing the skirt without shapewear and I felt okay but definitely not as structured or shapely as I wanted to look.

SHAPE_2So I took it a step further and pulled on my Hi- Waist Long Leg Shaper by Wacoal, which creates a nice lift to your seat while shaping your midsection and thighs, redefining and flattering your natural curves. And because they are virtually seamless with leg openings for the smoothest possible look and feel under clothing, no rolling up or bunching happens. So when I pulled the undergarment on, I immediately noticed that everything seemed tighter and more toned looking. Win win!

SHAPE_4SHAPE_3SHAPE_1All of these perks helped boost my confidence in wearing it in the first place and made me feel comfortable enough to pair it with a cropped sleeveless sweater, (progress!) a structured blazer and my favorite high heels. Overall, I felt comfortable (the high-waisted aspect of the shapewear comes up right below your ribs so you can still breathe) and very feminine. What are your thoughts on shapewear? Do you wear it, and if so, how different do you feel when it’s on? Head on over to Wacoal to check out their other awesome shapewear options. Also, I would love to know your thoughts on this so make sure to leave your comments below!

I recently teamed up with NYDJ to create an outfit to share on Instagram, but I loved the pieces so much I wanted them share on the blog as well! My jeans, top and jacket are all from NYDJ and I loved the fit and style of each item. I also loved that I didn’t have to hem the flares because they were already the right length for me. That is a always win-win in my book!
