How To Feel Confident In A Bikini

I’ll be perfectly honest – I have always had body issues. I don’t think many women can say they haven’t felt insecure about their body at some point in their life. But 2019 is all about loving yourself and feeling confident in your own skin, so let’s embrace it! There are some easy ways to give yourself an extra boost of confidence while wearing a bikini this summer. Getting the right fit is the first step, then choosing the right style for you will bring out your inner confidence and make you feel gorgeous.

Choose A Fun Print

I love the snakeskin print on the Yandy Slither & Slay One Shoulder Bikini Top. Snakeskin is on trend for summer 2019 and you will be sure to get tons of compliments by wearing it. I always feel more confident wearing something a little more daring without going too over the top. I also like how the side is adjustable so you can decide how much skin you want to show. For someone with a bigger bust like me, it also helps to give the top a little more support

Wear A Multiway Bikini Top

A multiway bikini top gives you unlimited options on how you want to style your bikini. I chose to style the Yandy Desert Rose 5 Way Bikini by tying it in the front, which also gave me a little more coverage over my abdomen – an area I am a little insecure about. There are a lot of really cool ways to style this bikini which would be sure to turn heads and boost your confidence. You can tie the straps to make it look more like a crop top, or create a halter top for some added lift.

Throw On A Sexy Cover Up

It’s easy to throw on a cover up to hide your flaws, but with something a little sexier, you can feel covered up and confident at the same time. The Yandy Slither & Slay Cover Up is sheer with a side slit, so it is very sexy, but also very comfortable and on trend. No one will ever question your confidence while wearing a cover up like this. This cover up is perfect for wearing to a pool party or to the beach.

There are so many options for swimwear right now that there’s no reason you can’t find something that makes you feel confident and look stunning.

Fashion Must Haves For Spring 2019

I love Spring fashion because it means new trends and bright colors and patterns. I always go through the clothes I had stored away during the winter and sell or donate what I don’t want anymore so I can make room for new styles. There are a lot of really fun trends I’ve been seeing this Spring as well as fresh twists on the classics. These are my top picks for Spring 2019:  

Denim Jacket

Free People Denim Jacket

Living in Scottsdale, it can get pretty hot during the day in springtime, but it can still be chilly at night. A denim jacket is perfect for Spring weather and it’s a classic that will never go out of style. A lighter wash is perfect for Spring and goes great with any kind of outfit. I got this Free People denim jacket at Macy’s last year at the end of the season when everything was on sale. That’s the best time to buy a piece that you know will still be on trend the following year!

Rattan Bag

These bags are everywhere this year! They are so cute and you can fit all of your everyday essentials in them. This is the Amerii Ata Bag and the quality is totally worth the price. I think rattan bags will be sticking around through summer and we will probably see similar styles next year as well. They match so well with boho-style clothing.

Clear Sunglasses

I love these Warby Parker sunglasses because the clear Rose Water frame matches so well with everything I wear. There are a lot of crazy shapes going on with sunglasses right now, but I like to stick to more traditional shapes because they’re more flattering on my face and are more practical. Sunglasses are another item where I would rather spend the money on something that will last me for years rather than a pair that won’t even last through summer.

Gemstone Jewelry

Moon Magic Rose Quartz Ring

I have always been very anti-diamond and prefer other, less traditional gemstones for my jewelry. Moonstone has been one of my favorites, but rose quartz is a close second. I absolutely adore this Moon Magic rose quartz ring. It is so feminine and beautiful and adds a touch of luxury to any outfit. I only wear high quality rings and this one is no exception (Who wants to be left with a green stain on their finger? Not me!)

Patterned Pants

I love that patterned pants have made a comeback because they are so comfortable and make you look super stylish without even trying. These pants are from Topshop and the quality is surprisingly great. The only problem is it’s hard to find a top that matches well with the pants, but this crochet top from Francesca’s seems to be a good match.

What are your fashion must haves for Spring 2019?

How to Choose a New Year’s Dress Based on Your Style

Everyone has their own idea of what a New Year’s outfit should look like, but one thing is for certain – this is the time to wear something decadent that you wouldn’t wear on any old night out. You can dress as extravagantly as you please because everyone will be dressed to the nines. Of course, you don’t want to wear something you’re not comfortable in, because the whole point of the night is to have fun. Whatever you choose to wear should reflect your personal style, but also dare to push the boundaries and take it to the next level.

Star of the Show

Gold Metallic Dress with Thigh High Slit
Yandy Divine Metallic Dress

New Year’s parties are the one time you can really go all out and not stick out like a sore thumb, so why not go for it? Floor length is definitely the way to go if you are dressing to impress. You will turn heads in this dress with the thigh high slit and gorgeous gold, slinky fabric. The cut of the dress hugs your curves in all the right places.

FYI, this is the dress I will actually be wearing on New Year’s Eve because I am just that extra. I usually wear something with sequins, but I’m ready to change it up this year. Metallic has the same ‘wow’ factor without sharp plastic scratching up my arms.

Classic with a Twist

Black Gown with Zipper Front
Divine Vixen Dress

Black is always a great choice for formal events, and not everyone loves sparkle. You can jazz up the classic black gown with an edgy touch, like a zipper running down the front. Just because it is a plain black dress doesn’t mean it has to be boring. The material for this dress is super stretchy and is very figure flattering. You can even take the outfit up a notch with eye-catching shoes or accessories. This dress is also great for a more formal New Year’s Eve party.

Club-Going Cutie

Red Long Sleeve Dress with Cutout Neckline
Call Me Baby Red Dress

If you don’t feel like wearing a floor length dress, a cocktail dress is also a great choice. Red will definitely stand out from the crowd, and the cut out gives it a flirty touch without being too revealing. This dress is also made from a very stretchy and figure-hugging material, which is perfect for showing off your curves. Wearing a short dress also makes it a lot easier to dance, which I’m sure everyone will be doing a lot of on New Year’s Eve!

Fill Your Christmas Stocking with…Stockings!

When you were a kid, getting socks for Christmas was THE WORST. But stockings are the grown up, much more fun, distant cousins of socks that the special female in your life would love to get for Christmas. If you’re stuck on ideas for stocking stuffers this year, or just want to treat yourself, then take a look at some of the stockings I’ve picked out from Yandy’s hosiery section. Below are my favorite stockings and some ideas for how to wear them.

There’s nothing more classically sexy than stockings with a back seam. You can go for a full on retro look, or style them for a more modern outfit. I wore mine with a faux leather skirt and chunky black boots for a more edgy vibe. The garter belt also gives you a little boost of confidence and makes you feel like you have a little sultry secret that no one else knows about.

These over-the-knee socks are a great gift choice because they are so versatile. They can be dressed up or down, and can be worn either pulled up to the thigh or scrunched down below the knee. I really like the country girl feel they bring to this outfit when paired with brown leather boots and a flowy dress.

Glittering Diamond Thigh High Stockings

For a gift that really “wows”, I would choose these sparkling thigh high stockings. They can really take an outfit to the next level and are perfect for holiday parties. I really like that they are thigh high, rather than going all the way up to the waist, so they are more comfortable – especially when wearing a lot of layers in the winter. They don’t slip down as you walk around either, which can be super annoying. They really stand out with an all black outfit. I wore them with a plain black dress, black faux fur coat and chunky heels.   

When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black opaque tights, like these Solid Micro Fiber Tights. Black tights are a staple for any women’s wardrobe, and these are good quality tights that don’t feel like they’re going to rip from a single scratch of your manicured nails.

If you want to really go all out, you can further supplement your stocking stuffer gifts with accessories like Garter Suspender Straps, or Leg Harnesses. Don’t be afraid to get creative! There’s really something for everyone.
