Summer Swimwear Roundup!

Happy Monday, gals! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll have seen that I am already enjoying summer activities here in Austin… Blake and I ventured to the Greenbelt for a little creekside swim and picnic on Saturday. It’s been raining so much recently that there was actually plenty of water (it’s a miracle!) and TONS of people were out enjoying some quality time outside with their friends, family and SO many pups…it was so¬†much fun to see! Summer is hands down the most fun season for me because I can finally partake in one of my very favorite activities..SWIMMING! Oh…and summer vacations aren’t so bad, either! ūüėČ But in all seriousness, once Austin hits those super high temps, you can find me swimming laps at the pool everyday (not even kidding, that’s my main form of exercise in the summer… I LOVE it!). Both my parents grew up as competitive swimmers (as in, held statewide records…true story!) so my siblings and I¬†like to joke that we were swimming before we learned to walk.. which somehow I wouldn’t doubt knowing my parents love for the water, ha!

Okay for starters, how amazing is this mustard yellow Free People dress?! Trust me, I about fell in love with this thing. SO pretty…and feminine…and lovely…and every other girly adjective that all sums up to dress¬†perfection! Last night I met up with my good friend and beautiful photographer Corbin Chase. Corbin and I have known each other since high school days (rival high schools in Austin, united by our love for theatre and makeshift photo shoots back then…!). Since our days as experimental teens, we’ve both followed our love for fashion. He moved to New York City and works in the fashion scene, all the while snapping pictures of passerbyers that really tell stories of the¬†youth of Brooklyn and NYC. (Take a look at his website here).

Needless to say, when he came into town for a few days, we had to reconvene and not only catch up, but collaborate on a fun little shoot! I sent him a picture of the dress, and from there we set the scene! I love the vintage feel of these photos, but it’s truly the mustard and muted color combinations in the dress¬†that add such an old school vibe. I added a fringe statement necklace¬†and wedge sandals¬†(can you tell I am obsessed with wedges yet?), and topped off my look with¬†a swipe of red lipstick¬†and red nails¬†to bring out that sweet, classic feel.

Oh yes, and that Louis Vuitton luggage? Hey, a girl can dream! It’s his mom’s vintage suitcase. AMAZING! She let us play in her closet before we went out for the shoot. Oooh, too much fun!

Alrighty, for the last time, this. dress. is. everything! My boyfriend (who only saw it on the hanger) said it looked too “granny” for him. Well, my darling, I beg to differ! Wait until he see’s this post! ūüėČ Romantic date night soon in this charming, floral dress? I think yes!

 

Stay tuned,
Livvy
