Happy Sunday and welcome back!! How is everyone doing? Did you guys catch all the farmhouse updates on Instagram this week?? So much exciting stuff is happening FAST so if you want all the BTS be sure to follow along on Instagram. But right now it’s link up time so let’s get straight into it starting with a little design eye candy:
This home tour is just so beautiful (cries). The bathroom has risky (but awesome) stone flooring, there’s a wild marble + arched kitchen island. OH, and to top it off? An ocean view…it’s pretty much the American dream on steroids.
From Emily: I’ve been LIVING in these shorts on vacation (update, if that link didn’t work for you try this…some browsers had technical difficulty!). They are super lightweight and they have a nice wide waistband that does NOT cut in (I size way up in Lululemon and these are a size 8 so def size 1-2 sizes up). They are short, yet flowy, which is wonderful for running but they have built-in underwear so no one will see your butt cheeks. PLUS they are EXCELLENT to pull over a bathing suit and yes I swim in them almost every day when I jump in the lake. Plus they have a pocket with a zipper (not big enough for a cell phone, but good for ID and keys). But again, it’s mostly because they stay put while also being comfortable (again them not cutting in is crucial for me). I’ve been looking for a great pair of pull-on shorts (“soft shorts” as my Levi’s are feeling a little snug for all-day wear). I have a few more to order if you guys want a “pull-on shorts” review let me know. They are all I want to wear this summer while playing with kids.
From Ryann: I am so obsessed with this buttery-soft bralette that I actually never want to take it off. I can hardly tell I am wearing anything under my shirt which is wild. That’s how comfortable it is. I have it in the color “pebble” and it’s the perfect bralette to wear under white t-shirts and even racer back tanks. 1000/10.
From Caitlin: I have been #emfluenced (yes, it happens to our team, too) and I AM GLAD. After reading Em’s glowing review of her new TA3 swimsuit, I grabbed two of my own (the Plungey, which she recommended, and the Lacey, which is a little more covered up – that’s the one I’m wearing up there) and both are AWESOME. I love swimming/the beach/the pool and don’t have a ton of swimwear-induced agony – like, I’m at a place with my body where my general feeling is “it is what it is” – but these suits made me feel SUPER comfortable AND cool. They were both incredibly supportive (the lace-up back is NO JOKE – you’re in TIGHT, in a good way!) and held up awesome after hooooours and hours in the ocean. My friends and I are renting a blow-up waterslide later this month and I can’t wait to wear this one again for the whole day
From Mallory: Caitlin turned me onto Farm Rio in a real way – so now any time I go to Nordstrom or anywhere that sells it, I always check their rack first, and I always find something incredible that’s kinda splurgy (but worth it) UNTIL I saw they came out with t-shirts. I just picked up this one and haven’t taken it off (gross I know) but I love the boxy cut, I sized down so the sleeves don’t feel as long and it’s all in all super high quality, and very comfortable. I can’t wait to rock it literally all summer and beyond. It’s THAT graphic tee.
Also from Mallory: And while we’re on the subject of Farm Rio, my dream in life is to go somewhere beautiful in Mexico and wear this dress. If you’re planning a trip, go get it. Live the dream
From Jess: I found REALLY cute and comfortable summer sandals! I’ve already been wearing them a bunch and sooooo far no blisters. They are the perfect balance of casual and structured so they can easily be dressed up or down. I got them in brown but they also come in black. Huge fan and I got them at Nordstrom Rack so they were under $50!
As always have a great rest of your Sunday, and see you back here tomorrow! xx
