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.

Hi friends! Once again I went a little MIA. Man when you don't feel good you just can't get anything done! I have good days and bad days and they are so unpredictable. I had more bad days than good this week, which meant a lot of resting. By the way, I want to say thank you to everyone, once again, for all the kind messages, letters and texts, etc. after my latest health post. I've read every single message sent my way, sometimes it's hard to respond to everything, and for that I apologize, but from the bottom of my heart I am extremely grateful for all the love and support as I go through this. 

Holy cow is off the shoulder trending or what? I absolutely love it. Off the shoulder has always been one of my favorite trends. I'm so glad you can find the trend anywhere from tops to rompers. Such a fun look for spring. I can't wait to wear this top (and all the other OTS items I've caved and purchased) with shorts and skirts when it starts to get a little warmer. It was a pretty chilly and windy day when we shot these photos (hence the real messy hair), so pairing these fun rust booties for a pop of color made this outfit feel a little more exciting and weather appropriate, especially when the temp was less than desirable.

The top I'm wearing is from Vici Dolls and is unfortunately sold out, but I've linked some identical ones below. Also, my absolute FAVORITE tee that I live in (and have in 4 colors) is part of the Shopbop Sale going on. I highly recommend snagging one (or two) for yourself at this price while you can. It's slightly oversized, super soft, and has held up in the wash nicely. You can see me wearing them here and here for reference. 

Finally, I'm thinking of doing a Q&A post soon. What do you guys think? If you have any questions, send them my way! Nothing is off limits. If I get enough questions then I'll definitely do a post, otherwise I'll just respond to you directly. Feel free to ask in the comments here, on my Instagram, or via email (

Have a great weekend my friends!

Happy Wednesday! We're halfway through the week, woo hoo! I'm really looking forward to the weekend, I'm headed to Austin for a wedding! I've never been to Austin so I'm excited to see what the city has to offer. If you have any suggestions of places I should check out, let me know! 

It should be no surprise that I love monochromatic looks. I think there is something so simple, yet chic, about wearing the same color head to toe. All white is my FAVORITE for summer. It's fresh and simple and always looks polished. No surprise number two is that I love off the shoulder pieces! I love the detail on this top - it adds a little something without being overwhelming. Paired with lace up sandals (a shoe trend I'm loving this summer), this is a simple outfit that's polished and perfect for date night. 

I noticed some of these pieces are low in stock, so I found similar items and linked in the widget below.
