Pineapple Crazy

Pineapple has somehow crept it’s way into our wardrobes. Where did this fruit print trend come from? I can’t answer that, but I’m pretty in love with it. Guess what? It’s not just me whose head over hills for this summer trend.
Good Housekeeping’s August 2015 issue features pineapple clothing and DIYs.
Olivia Munn graces the cover holding a pineapple with a pink painted crown.

This is an awesome DIY, but I don’t really care about DIY projects, lol. Back to fashion. Inside of the magazine, she wears a Tory Burch top that is the absolute cutest. The pineapple top is tucked into a pair of Derek Lam 10 Crosby high waisted shorts. It’s just too adorable.
Basically, every designer I love has gotten in on the fun. Kate Spade has a couple cute handbags and clutches. Oh, and I can’t forget an awesome phone case. Keds allows your feet to get in on this madness, too. I’ve been so inspired by the trend I had to put my own spin on it. Is this too much pineapple? I don’t really care, because this look is perfect for summer.

Her Style| Tribal High Waisted Swim Suit

So, I’ve finally been able to get out to a beach for some sun! It was a perfect Sunday to pull out my favorite bathing suit this summer. Of course, it came from one of my favorite stores, Forever 21. The plus-size section at F21 is gives us bigger girls the freedom to wear whatever we choose.

The high waisted bikini design dates back to the 60s but this millennial girl loves them! It lets you channel your inner pin-up girl. I always feel like a thick, black Betty Paige when I wear one.Screen Shot 2015-07-15 at 10.22.59 PM

I’ve gotten so many compliments in this suit. I just absolutely love it on my skin complexion and body. The neon colors and the straps in the back make for perfect tan lines. The high waisted bikini design is meant to give you a slimmer waist while smoothing out your belly. The bottom lets your hips stick out, while allowing your legs and butt to look amazing. I don’t have the biggest butt, but its firm and just round enough.

I don’t usually waste my time with cover ups while going to the beach. I’m pretty comfortable in my skin when I put on a suit. There are more women like me who have embraced the “fatkini” and broken the rules when it comes to bathing suits. I’m not going to stop wearing what makes me feel good. Forget good, AMAZING!

XOXO,

Summer Breeze Makes Me Feel Fine

Summer will forever be a great season for fashion. Well, truthfully any season is a great season for fashion.  This summer has especially bloomed into something epic for my wardrobe. Before diving in too quickly, I have to make sure that I have the perfect bathing suits. I was in a rush to squeeze back into my favorite high-waisted bikinis.

Forever21 will forever be my go-to for cheap but chic style. I’ve always been able to create fashionable looks with the pieces I’ve ordered from the online site.  Last summer, my favorite bathing suit was lined with fringe.

But this summer, I’ve found a new love. Black may not be the color for summer, but it definitely lets my melanin be on fleek in this particular suit.
