Army Green Bikinis from Zaful

           Since summer is right around the corner I thought that I would let you guys know that Zaful has a bunch of army green bikinis and black halter bikinis.  This is the green one that I like best.  The top is a little bit more unique with the ruffles.  It comes in a variety of other colors too.  I've been seeing a ton of army green lately.  It's the type of color that you can wear like a neutral, but it's not actually one.  I love the silhouette of this black halter bikini.  It looks sleek and flattering.  I have been wanting a black swimsuit for a long time but never find one that I like enough to buy.  I love the halter neck style.  It just reminds me of the 90's when I was little.  Halter style swimsuits come into style from time to time but they always seem rare to me.  I thing it's because even when they are in style triangle bikinis are still more popular.  




          This other army green bikini above has an interesting arrangement of seams on the top.  It gives the swimsuit a lot of added interest.  I just feel like with swimsuits, they can be very plain sometimes.  I'm not a fan of plain swimsuits, unless I am feeling particularly minimal.  That's very rare, though.  The bottoms are extremely "cheeky" though, which is not my taste.  I know that's another trend that so many people like.  


          This peachy pink colored swimsuit is the prettiest color.  It seems like people just can't get enough pink right now.  This includes me.  Everything from chairs to clothing, I find myself lusting after if it's pink.  Not a bright pink, it has to be mauve or this type of lighter pink.  I always refer to it as 50's pink because that's what it reminds me of.  I also really like the way there is a strap on these bottoms that goes around your waist.  I think it would look interesting on.  This suit is just very minimal without being boring.  


          This other swimsuit is the T Back Braided Bikini Set.  It's this sunny yellow color with braided string on the top and bottom.  There is a section of it on the sides and back.  It is kind of a macrame style braid.  It looks super beach-y with this detail.  I also have to point out that the bottoms are "cheeky" if anybody is thinking of getting this and wants more coverage.  


          My favorite categories to shop at Zaful are Swimwear and Jumpsuits & Rompers.  Out of all of the swimsuits that they have right now I think I want this one the most.  I absolutely love the colors and style.  I've really been loving one-piece swimsuits lately because they look so fashion forward.  They aren't the best for getting tan but they are great to wear before you get tan.  It's hard to tell how high-waisted the bottom portion of this is but if it comes just above the belly button it would be perfect!


This romper is from my other favorite category, Jumpsuits and Rompers.  I think it is beautiful.  It would perfect to wear to a spring or summer party.  I would love to wear this to a graduation or something like that.  It's so pretty and feminine.  I honestly just love everything about it.  The style is perfect and the fabric is beautiful.

          What first attracted me to this dress from tobi.com is the layers of lace.  They are so pretty and really in style right now.  I am in love with this trend because it's delicate and feminine but more interesting than your usual lace dress.  This dress fits pretty well too because it is adjustable.  The back is open and ties up.  You can tie it as tight as you want.  The color is also the prettiest rose color!

SHORTS: Tobi | TOP: Nordstrom | PURSE: Kelsey Dagger Brooklyn | CHOKER: Made Myself (Charm from Etsy) | SANDALS: Akira Chicago

          I got these shorts about a week ago from tobi.com.  I think they are so unique.  I love the lace up detail on the sides.  I've never seen shorts that have this before.  I also totally love the fabric.  My style is very feminine and these kind of fit perfectly into that.  They are an eyelet floral design in a pretty powder blue.  They are a little big but I can adjust the size by tying them tighter on the sides.  I want to get a white cropped top to wear with time eventually.  Also, don't you just love my matching sandal and purse combo? 😄

          I'm back with another outfit post! I'm wearing this amazing off-the-shoulder top from Tobi.  I absolutely love it.  I've seen a few similar ones at other stores and I really wanted to try one out, but never got the opportunity to.  I love the way it has a thick band around the neckline because that helps to keep it in place.  It doesn't pop up every time you raise your arms, like a lot of off-the-shoulder tops do.  It' also doesn't fall down.  I fits perfectly.  The detail with the ties on the arms is really cute too.  I wanted to wear it with something more summery, but it was chilly this day.  I can't wait to wear it more during the summer!  For my Australian readers, Tobi is offering free shipping to Australia with no minimum.

Wooden Watch From JORD

         
 WATCH: JORD | JEANS: ASOS | TOP: Nordstrom | CARDIGAN: Forever 21 | SHOES: Sperry X Gray Malin 

          Hey guys!  I want to share how I styled my new watch from JORD.  It's a super unique accessory that is made out of wood.  It is truly beautiful.  I chose to keep it pretty casual because I didn't want to overshadow the watch.  I am wearing my mom jeans, striped cropped top, and mauve cardigan.  What I love about this watch is the mix of different types of wood.  It's made of zebrawood and maple.  You can find my watch HERE and tons of other beautiful options at www.woodwatches.com.
          JORD watches come in amazing little wooden boxes.  The level of detail that goes into the packaging and product is incredible.  First off, I have to point out that the box smells amazing.  It's magnetic and has a little storage drawer for the cleaning supplies.  The watch itself feels like such great quality.  It's very sturdy and the clasp is really secure.  The word "JORD" is engraved on the side as well.  There are just plenty of nice little details.  Not only does JORD make watches for women, they also make men's watches.  Graduation season and Mother's Day are right around the corner.  I think JORD watches would make a perfect gift for both.
          You guys can enter this contest to win a $100 online gift code! It's super easy to enter.  All you have to do is click HERE.  One winner will be randomly selected on 5/21.  You have until 11:59 to enter.  After the contest ends, check you e-mail because everybody who enters will be sent a $50 online gift code.

BODYSUIT: H&M | SHORTS: Levi's (thrifted) | PURSE: Target  | SUNGLASSES: Yoshop | SANDALS: Forever 21 | NECKLACE: H&M

          I recently found these shorts at Plato's Closet.  I love the way they are just basic high-wasted denim shorts.  It is so hard to find high-wasted shorts that aren't super short, a weird dye color,  or distressed, that are also affordable.  I am wearing them with my only bodysuit.  I'm still not really sure how I feel about bodysuits because they are ridiculously tight and inconvenient to wear.  However, I do love that this one says "I grew up with mermaids."  I have a bit of an obsession with mermaids.  I used to wear bodysuits in elementary school and I loved them.  I think that's the last time I wore one.  Also, I will be selling this bag on my Poshmark store: @fancyfashcastle.

         My sister came to visit from Florida for a few days.  It was a few days before Easter.  We did a bunch of fun things and one of them was go to Turkey Run State Park.  It's my second favorite Indiana State Park.  If you aren't from around here, I'm guessing you have never been.  Not many people come to Indiana as a destination.  I have to say, it's a surprising little gem in the middle of nowhere.  There are a bunch canyons and waterfalls, a river where you can canoe, horses, and an inn. The trails are really fun because you have to walk through the waterfall at certain points.  There are ladders you have to climb and a suspension bridge.  If you pass through Indiana and are nearby, I highly recommend you stop.  Turkey Run is located about halfway down the state on the west side.  Check out my blog post from the last time I went HERE!
