    Feeling Tropical at Home

    Did you have any tropical vacation plans for this summer that can canceled? I did not. I was supposed to go to Ireland, which is not exactly tropical, but really I just wish I could go anywhere at this point! Anyway, since I’m pretty much just sticking to my area, I thought it would be fun to do a tiny little tropical themed thing at my parents’ house. Now, it’s not a full-on theme. I didn’t make decorations or break out the tiki torches or anything, but I did make virgin pina coladas (a throwback to my childhood when we would make these all the time), wear a neon green…

    Donut Tube + Leopard One-Piece

    What happens when you’re stuck in a heat wave, your community pool isn’t opening this summer because of COVID, and your parents won’t let you put an inflatable pool in their backyard because it will ruin their lawn? You sit in a donut pool float with the underground sprinklers going. It actually was really refreshing! I did take these photos pretty early in the morning though so that my parents’ neighbors wouldn’t think I was totally crazy. I love this leopard print wrap one-piece bathing suit too! I wore it last weekend when I did this whole tube in the sprinklers thing along with a white lace cover-up. Swimsuit: Aerie…

    Gingham Ruffle One-Piece

    Last year I wrote about my new love for one-piece bathing suits. Seriously, they’ve become super cute the past few years and I feel so much more comfortable in them than two-pieces. Even with plunging necklines and side cutouts, I just feel more comfortable. I picked up a few new ones for this summer and I love them all! I recently hung out at my friend’s house and she has a pool in her backyard so I took a few photos of my new gingham ruffle one-piece. Bathing Suit:Β Aerie | Sunglasses:Β Express I think the colors in this suit are so fun and I love the style. It’s got a high…

    Pool Party Style

    Weekend Pool Party by lifeaccordingtojamie featuring American Eagle Outfitters I’ve been at a workshop this week for work and while it’s been really useful and I’m learning a lot, it’s also super tiring. Definitely not my first choice of things to do for 8 hours a day all week during the summer. So where do I wish I was instead right now? Keep in mind that when this post goes live, I’ll probably be stuck in traffic on my way home! In my dream world, I’d have a beautiful built in pool in my backyard and I could go for a dip to cool off or just lounge poolside. In…

    Hawaii: Beach & Pool Looks

    I’m nearing the end of my vacation in Hawaii and my beach and pool looks are starting to repeat, but I thought I’d show you some looks from the last few days. Top: Mossimo via Target Shorts: Tribal Print Wrap-Front Short from Forever 21 Love these shorts – they’re so cute! And the wrap detail makes them so different than regular shorts. It’s important to note that this is not a stretchy material at all. It is a bit stiff and is not forgiving so it would be a good idea to size up. I wore this outfit over this bathing suit… Swimsuit: Candie’s Vintage Bouquet Floral via Kohls The…
