Nautical One-Piece Bathing Suit


Nautical One Piece Bathing Suit Today I’m sharing a nautical one piece bathing suit from ModCloth that is sexy, flattering, and fun!  If you haven’t shopped at ModCloth, what I consider their leg up is that they honor the varied figures of women of all sizes.  They have a lot of retro looking bathing suits and dresses and almost all of their items can be found in sizes for every body.   And on that note – I’m using this post to share some…

How To Build An industrial Clothes Rack - pinteresting plans

I had looked into how to build an industrial clothes rack about a year ago when I started adding fashion content to my blog and ran out of room to store my expanding wardrobe.   I put off the project until recently when I started planning a fundraiser and was going to need a way to display the clothes for this fun event.  SAVE THE DATE (if you’re local).   June 2nd I’ll be hosting an event with my friends at…

Shein Review: How I Pick Clothes from

spring outfit ideas: camo jacket with lace insert camisole

I have been getting a lot of messages asking for a Shein review.  I get questions about my experience with them and their shipping, the quality of the items, and how I select clothes from their website.   I know a lot of people are turned off by the very low price and international shipping.  Certainly some items are not the highest quality, but overall I have had a positive experience with the items I have selected.…

Giving Tuesday! Spotlight on What Matters

spring outfit ideas: pink ruffle hem top with white skinny jeans and wedge sandals

spring outfit ideas: ruffle sleeve top with stonewashed boyfriend jeans

The denim above is nearly identical because my exact pair sold out quickly when it went 40% off at Nordstrom.  You can find my exact pair on the brand’s website here. If you’re looking for a maxi dress I HIGHLY recommend this one but you need THIS BRA with it. I  wear this bra with lots of shirts and it’s inexpensive.   I use CHEAP a tapered curling wand for beachy waves. I sized up in these shorts (under $40)…
