The Rose Bodysuit

I’m loving my very first bodysuit purchase! I used to be very skeptical of them. Would I feel like a child in this? Would it ride up in the back? Would it show panty lines? Maybe it depends on the bodysuit. I’ve found just the perfect one from Dillard’s. It’s made out of ponte knit fabric, which has a thicker consistency and holds you in all the right places. It has a halter neckline and is high enough in the back so that you can still wear a strapless bra. As far as panty lines go, they don’t show! Because it’s more of a thong style, it sits high and blends seamlessly.

I think the best part of this bodysuit is definitely the floral appliques. Roses are having a big moment in fashion right now (hello Gucci) and these are at just the right spot on the bust. The hot pink color makes everything pop and says you’re ready for summer festivals!

FYI: I’m wearing a size medium. It fit me best with my long torso.


Off The Shoulder in Treasure Island


Off The Shoulder Top: Do + Be

So excited to share these photos with you! I was recently contacted by Mary Parkhill through Instagram to collaborate on a little photo shoot. We decided to shoot near the boardwalk on Treasure Island Beach. I’m so happy with how the shots turned out! Mary was so incredibly nice, professional, and took some amazing photos.

I’m wearing my favorite off the shoulder top that I picked up at a Miami boutique last year. The shoulder and sleeve interest trend shows no signs of slowing down. It was the biggest trend last year and this year designers are reinventing it with more innovative and novel details. My top features a built-in bustier, voluminous sleeves, and ties at the end.

If you’re in the Tampa Bay area, I highly recommend Mary if you need high quality photos taken. Check her out below!
