Labor Day | Swim on Sale | PilyQ Swimsuit

PilyQ swimsuit on Jen Hawkins Style blog
One of my favorite things to shop on Labor Day are swimsuits – there are so many good swim sales!  And even though summer’s winding down, it’s always fun to stock up on swimsuits for your next vacation.  (Or if you get Indian Summers like we do down here, next weekend ;).) I love this PilyQ suit that’s on sale: Swimsuit Top (on sale!) | Swimsuit Bottoms (on sale!) | Matching Poncho Coverup | Purple Sunnies Swimsuit Top…

Swim Collective Huntington Beach
Yesterday I took a quick walk around Swim Collective.  I love going to Swim Collective because it’s a great way to see what’s coming from my favorite brands, plus it’s in a beautiful spot (and only 10 minutes from our house!)  I noticed some new trends, plus some good ones carrying over.  Scroll down for some of my favorite trends and brands to watch!

What I’m Into This Week | 7.8.2016

Suay & Co. Towels.  My sister-in-law, Lindsay, actually started this little company and the idea is genius!  She basically combined the concept of a lightweight turkish towel with a regular, terry cloth towel.  So one side is woven fabric and the other side is lined with terry cloth.  You get the light-weight aspect but you can still dry off with it ;).  There’s also a rad hidden pocket that Velcro’s shut, perfect for keeping your…

Boys + Arrows x The Paradise Society

Guys, I might have found my favorite one-piece of all time.  It’s SO comfortable and flattering, and I have gotten so many compliments on it already.  I want it in every color way!  I also LOVE this cover-up.  When we took these photos, we were joking that the cover-up with the suit could pass as an evening dress!  Really tho, such a good way to go from pool to dinner when you’re on vacation!

Boys + Arrows | Cover-ups and Suits

Guys, it’s here – swimsuit season!  Whether you live somewhere that’s warm already, or you’re vacationing somewhere warm, most of us are realizing it’s time to put on a swimsuit.  That can be scary after a winter of eating comfort food and your skin never seeing the sun, which is why I’m kind of obsessed with cover-ups right now!  They’re helping me ease into swimsuit season ;).  Boys + Arrows does cover-ups right, and they…

In honor of festival season, I’m loving the fun cuts and desert prints from Velvet Sphynx.  My favorite is the lizard print I’m wearing below, and the one piece can double as a body suit with some cute cutoffs.  You can be the first to shop their new line exclusively on the Foray Collective today!

Ruby Mint Beach Towels | 2016

Guys! Today is the day Ruby Mint launches their 2016 towels, and I’m so excited to be a part of it!  You may remember from last year how much I love these towels, and the designs just get better!  They’re oversized, yarn-dyed towels using super high-quality cotton, no less than 500 gsm.  (Just trust me, that’s really good!)  I take our’s to the beach and the pool (I love it at the pool because it covers…

The Desert in Ipanema

I’ve been spending time in the desert lately for work, and let me tell you…there is no hanging “poolside” right now in Palm Springs – you have to be IN the pool, or inside with AC.  It’s reaching upwards of 110 degrees, so wearing clothes isn’t really an option ;).  I’m glad I brought this one-piece from Ipanema with me.  The print just seems to fit the desert vibe, and it’s actually reversible – the other side…

Beach Vida Bling

It’s been cloudy and chilly lately, at least in the mornings.  Guys, May Gray/June Gloom is a real thing here in Southern California!  So today I’m posting pictures from a much warmer day that I spent with some great people.  We were on a little hidden beach in Laguna, but the day felt so amazing we kept joking that we had somehow ended up in Aruba.  Here’s to days like that, when I find myself…

The Perfect Suit | Body Jewelry

Guys – it’s almost Memorial weekend, which means SUMMER! If your memorial weekend includes swimwear, I’m telling you about my go-to suit, along with my favorite body chain from Gorjana’s summer line.  Not only do I love layering her rings, but her bali body Chain over this L*Space suit makes for the perfect combo. The past few months, whenever I open my swimsuit drawer, I go straight to my Chloe Wrap by L*Space.  I feel so comfortable…
