If you have seen my Instagram lately, you might think that I’ve taken up a new profession as a swimsuit connoisseur. Well let me tell you, there is this funny thing about recovery and being cooped up all day. It forces you to buy an absurd amount of swimsuits. That’s right, it’s the darndest thing and I’ve yet to figure out why this is the case. I’m hyping it up to be a side effect of the pain meds. Since I am going on SO many beach trips in the near future it’s totally justifiable though. Well I mean I’ve thought about going on vacation so that is kind of the same thing right…it’s like maybe if I just buy enough swimsuits it will force me to plan a beach getaway. Or is that not how it works?
I love that there are more options than ever when it comes to swimwear this season. And not just the ity bity bikinis, but one pieces and all over coverage is making a major fashion statement. I have to admit that I was pretty worried when I heard that Victoria’s Secret was going to quit carrying swimsuits. It’s where I got ALL of my swimsuits so branching out has been quite the adjustment for me. Change is hard guys. I’m that girl that orders the same item off the menu every single time at every restaurant so just imagine the dispare I went through to learn that I’d have to completely turn my life upside down to find a new favorite swimsuit retailer.
Me dramatic? Never.
So what did my search results find? Well for starters, Kortni Jeane was an obvious girly girls’ heaven. They have so many different patterns so that you can mix and match your top and bottoms. I also love that they are the perfect mix of modest and cute! Another bonus is that the majority of their swimsuits are high waisted and flattering on ALL body types, even expecting mamas! Just for sizing reference I ordered an XS (my normal size) but definitely regretted not getting the small so if you are in between sizes, I would size up! Other retailers that I have bought swimsuits from this year are ASOS, Nordstrom, Dillards, and Shein. Check out some of my favorites from these retailers below.
This weekend was full of color and not just because of the amazing new Sugar & Cloth color wall that has brightened up Houston, but because there was lots going on. Well between the 2 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy that I somehow found time to watch there was lots going on, I promise. Saturday started out by celebrating my sweet friend, Dawn and her 28th birthday the best way us bloggers know how- lots of pictures, food, and more pictures of our food! Yesterday I spent the day with my sister and mama eating a delicious brunch and running errands all over Houston. To check out more of this weekend’s festivities, my Instagram and Snapchat (username: shelbiadams) are always the best source to see me in action. I’d be glad to have you follow along!
I wore this fun little jumpsuit to brunch with the girls and you probably know if you’ve been around here long enough that my constant struggle is to find something to wear that is both comfortable, yet high-fashion. It’s a daily struggle. I have found jumpsuits to be my saving grace when it comes to this struggle. They seriously are so comfortable and require very little time and effort to throw on since you are not having to pick out 2 separate pieces. This means half the time spent in your closet, right? I love how this season has jumpsuits for just about every occasion or style you can think of. Strapless, wide-legged (culottes), plunging necklines, open back, printed, high-fashion, embellished, seriously you name it. Jumpsuits can be as dressy as something to wear to prom or as casual as lounging around the house. I don’t know about you, but I want one for just about every occasion please. Jumpsuits do all the work for you, are extremely comfortable, and frankly are the easiest piece of clothing to throw on besides pajamas! I did a little digging and found some cute jumpsuits all under $100.
Besides loving this jumpsuit trend this season, chunky heels are a very close second! Goodbye “beauty is pain” and welcome your feet to pure happiness. The chunky heel is in and your feet will thank you for it! I rounded up my favorite chunky heels under $100 here.
I hope you all have a great week and let me know what you think about the jumpsuit trend! Are you loving it as much as I am? I feel like I can jump and play! Maybe that’s one of the reason’s for the name 😉
