Rust Swimsuit

Hi friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 

Holy cow, can you believe it's the end of May already? I'm so excited for summer, though. I've started buying some fun pieces that will be perfect for warmer weather and summer in general. One site I love is Tobi for fast fashion items. They always have the cutest stuff, great deals, and are always right on trend. Plus they have some seriously cute suits right now that are SO affordable. Check them out if you have a swimsuit-needing trip coming up. 

This swimsuit is from Tobi and I'm seriously obsessed. The quality is great and I LOVE the color. It's different and a fun twist for summer. As far as fit goes, I would say it runs true to size. Obviously the bottoms are a tad big on me, but I've already addressed why I have trouble with things fitting me in previous posts. I also absolutely love all the strappy details both in the front and back. 

One thing that I was skeptical about last year when it came to swimsuits was letting my ileostomy bag show. This year I've fully embraced it and let it show. There's nothing I can do about it, so why get upset, hide, and never enjoy the pool again? I've said this before - everyone has flaws and everyone has something they are dealing with. You should never be ashamed of something that makes you different, nor should you judge others for the things that make them different. Last year I would have refused to put these pictures up on my blog for everyone to see. This year I wanted to post them, mainly to show others that you should never be ashamed of who you are and what makes you, YOU.

Cold Shoulder Top + Joggers

Happy Sunday everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful day! And most importantly, Happy Mother's Day to all the bad ass mama's out there. I would be nothing without my mama - shout out to mama Kath for all you do for me. 

X Disclaimer X - I do not want to hear anymore comments about how I'm "too thin" and "need to be fed" etc. I've addressed this in multiple blog posts and on my Instagram. Long story short, it's the result of stage 4 cancer and severe crohn's disease with a diverting ileostomy. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all :)

Ok now for this outfit! How AMAZING is this top? I'm so in love with it. It's super lightweight and flowy and just perfect for summer! Yes, it's another cold shoulder top, but I love how this one is a little different because it's not an obvious cold shoulder top at first glance, if you know what I mean. Also, I love the length - It's a little on the shorter side so it could totally be worn as a crop top, however if you aren't into that look, throw on a pair of high-waisted shorts or pants (plus the straps are adjustable). Also, this top is double layered so I didn't feel like I needed to wear a bra. Although you could absolutely pair with a fun bralette for a little more coverage and support. If you saw my last post, then you know how obsessed with these shoes. I haven't found a pair of simple platform sandals like this that are COMFORTABLE in a long time. 

Have a wonderful evening!

Perfect Summer OTS Dress

Another off the shoulder dress for summer? Groundbreaking. I sure hope you all know what movie I'm referencing with that line. If not (tisk tisk) I'll bring you up to speed here

I found this dress while shopping with my mom, and I'll be honest, I wasn't sure about it at first, but my mom talked me into trying it on and I'm so glad she did! This is such a perfect dress for summer. The fabric is more of a linen-like material, making it super light. It's off the shoulder (duh, what isn't these days) AND.........drumroll......... IT HAS POCKETS! That might be one of the most basic girl things I've said on here in a while, but seriously, find me a girl that doesn't like hidden pockets in dresses. Another reason I really love this dress is because of the versatility. It looks super cute dressed down with white converse sneakers, and also really cute with wedges or simple sandals like the ones I'm wearing here. 

Let me rave about these shoes for a second. I was worried they would be uncomfortable, but gosh was I wrong. The platform on the front of the shoe makes them really comfortable and easy to walk in. Definitely a great summer shoe staple because they are so versatile, in my opinion.

Last - I've been thinking about doing a Q&A post - either on here or via Insta Story. Is that something you all would be interested in? If so, let me know if the comments if 1. You'd be interested, 2. What question(s) you have for me, and 3. If you'd prefer a blog post or Insta Story.
