Happy Monday! In honor of Miami Swim Week, I wanted to take advantage of the nice summer weather and shoot some of my favorite swimwear so you will start to see more swim posts on my blog. A sexy and fun line that I adore is Acacia swimwear. This Hawaiian line is inspired by the love of travel and exotic beaches and encompasses the lifestyle of a Gypsetter. I am wearing the Panama top and love the crochet detailing which gives a subtle sexiness to this top. This top comes in an array of fun colors and prints so there is definitely something for everyone! It pairs so well with these white Milla crochet shorts from Sabo Skirt, which is one of my favorite Australian online shopping destinations. These shorts are so fun to wear that I wore them alot during my beach trip with my family in Long Branch, New Jersey. The weekend went by way too fast but it was so nice to spend some quality time with my family. Did you do anything fun over the weekend?

What a summer it has been so far! I really can't believe we are half way done with summer! I have been trying to hit up the beach and spend time with my friends and family as much as possible. When it comes to hanging out at the beach, I like to stick to a very comfortable and relaxed look so I make sure the pieces I bring are comfy and easy to throw on. I like effortless style because honestly I just care about getting tan and laying on the beach with my friends. Bella Dahl is the epitome of effortless chic style. Being such a huge fan of this brand for quite sometime, the collection is designed in Los Angeles where each piece is crafted with an exclusive blend of luxuriously soft fabric. This white shirt is so soft and can easily be thrown over a swimsuit, but I decided to give this shirt that "cropped" look with a simple knot. The shirt paired perfectly with these fun printed shorts from Aaraa!
 
I hope everyone has a great weekend! I am currently at the beach with my family so make sure to follow me on instagram (@living_in_heels) to see what I am up to!!

COVER UP

Time and time again I usually just throw on a tee and shorts over my swimsuit but lately I've been wanting a dress cover up that I can easily throw on without having to worry about throwing on shorts underneath. Ladies, I have found a great cover up that will take you from the beach to the bar (a beach bar that is!). 6 Shore Road comes to my rescue once again. Besides amazing swimwear, 6 Shore Road makes a variety of cover ups that are great to wear for the beach or a pool party. This peach colored cover up is a great addition to have in your summer wardrobe. I love the beaded embellished neckline which gives this cover up that extra "glam" look. I walked around Rehoboth Beach in this cover up and felt so comfortable in it. Not to mention I had to grab myself a Kohr's vanilla and orange sherbet ice cream cone!! I mean who can leave the beach with no sweet treat?!

MOROCCAN NIGHTS






TORN BY RONNY KOBO dress | SCHUTZ heels

It's like I'm in Morocco dancing the night away. This dress just screams that! The playful color combination and pattern gives off that Moroccan feel and is perfect for any summer night. This jersey style dress has plenty of stretch for comfort and flexibility. I love how this dress can be worn from day to night. I actually wore this dress to work and then went out at night for a few drinks with friends. Sometimes instead of a simple and classic outfit, I like to take the risk and go for something bold and different. This dress will certainly turn heads and make you the center of attention!

It's Monday and time to jump start your work week! I hope you all had a great weekend! I am excited that this week is a short week for me because I will be off to a nice relaxing beach vacation with my family!

BEACHING IT!

Seriously having an obsession with high waisted bikini sets so I had to do another post on it! This time I wanted to go for something more fun and I think this kaleidoscopic print says it all! I love the mix of flowers and geometric shapes in a myriad of pretty pastel hues. The silhouette is so flattering and will make anyone look amazing in it. Honestly, I just love this bikini set because I can eat as much food as I want on the boardwalk and not feel like I have to suck in my stomach to look skinny!
