Fun Stuff Friday: SWIM!

So a friend asked me to find her some great bathing suits for her honeymoon and I was happy to oblige. Here is the result of some of my browsing.


Victoria's Secret is always my go-to destination for fashionable swim. These are some of my favorites available online right now. I have the black bottom and can personally attest to its fabulousness. It squeezes and accentuates in all the right places and looks oh so chic. I may have ordered the one-piece pictured here just for the beautiful back...  Ok, I totally did. And that dreamy boho maxi? Ugh, I can't even!
Triangl is definitely the swim brand of the moment. I used to follow on Instagram but their lack of body diversity turned me off. I know, kinda hypocritical. It's not like Victoria's Secret does a better job. But at least VS embraces shape, you know? That's something. Triangl routinely employs stick-thin models with narrow, boy-shaped bodies. Those kinds of bodies are perfectly fine, but why not highlight swimwear across a range of perfectly fine bodies? Why limit yourself to the same kinds of models over and over? It's boring.

But anyway, that's a whole 'nother conversation. I still chose to highlight Triangl because I think their swimwear really is spectacular. So vivid-- just look at those colors. I love the Poppy in Blue Crush because it reminds me of Dory! And who doesn't love Dory? The second one I tracked down from this pretty pin with an unknown source link. Found it. :)

I was not familiar with this brand before but I love all of their bathing suit styles. They're just effortlessly beautiful and soft and feminine. Almost lingerie-like, except for that vivid orange one (which I love!).


And then there's Maagi, a brand with so much color and pattern I can't even handle it! The red one in the middle is solid but the criss-cross back and the little cuts in the front make it stand out from a standard red bikini. And the first one is just so vintage-y and adorbs-- love the shape and pattern play.

So which of these bathing suits would you wear? Are you color and pattern crazy like me?
I left out American Apparel and ModCloth-- two of my favorites-- but I might do a part 2 because there is just so much beautiful swimwear for every body nowadays.

Spring BBQ Outfit


Hi all, hi! It's been so long! Sadly, my blog hiatuses keep getting longer and longer. I am just blogging as time allows now, but I do hope to be more productive again soon. 

Today I bring you what I wore for a Memorial Day weekend barbecue. I've had a really bad cold since Tuesday so I wanted to be very comfortable. Also, I don't get to wear skirts or dresses during the week anymore so I thought I'd give this spring staple skirt of mine (see similar options below) some time out of the closet.

April Recap

I have few words for this monthly recap, other than my April was draining and poor Earnestyle suffered for it. I hope May (my birthday month, yay!) will be more balanced.

My job has completely taken over my life, but thankfully I was able to attend my friend's engagement party (pretty, pinteresty hydrangeas from that day) and go to the beach with the besties. 

Thanks for reading, everyone! 
I expect to get back to the full swing of things soon, including visiting your blogs and catching up with you all!
