4 Athletic Wear Brands You Probably Haven’t Heard Of

There are so many exciting, up and coming athletic wear brands, why just stick to Nike and Adidas? We have more options than ever before and so many are stylish, affordable, and functional. Have you heard of any of these brands? 

Pact

Pact is all about sustainability, fair trade, ethical fashion. Everything is made with organic cotton and is super soft and breathable. If you know me, you know I’m all about comfort, especially for workout clothes.

It can be so hard to find cute clothes that actually perform and hold up against the weather. Who says you can’t be fashionable and outdoorsy?

Yvette Sports

Yvette Sports makes affordable sports bras and clothing in a large range of sizes. I always struggle to find bras that fit, and this one miraculously fit like a glove. I didn’t expect a bra without underwire to be supportive enough for me, but this bra has enough structure for light exercise such as yoga.

Yoga Club Box

Yoga Club Box is a subscription box that includes pieces from well-known brands, curated for your personal style, at an affordable price. They claim to save you at least 50% off retail prices. My box included brands I have seen at Nordstrom and I was very happy with the quality of the items I received.

3 Types of Bodysuits Styled For 3 Different Looks: Featuring Yandy

Bodysuits have been a hot trend lately and it looks like they are here to stay. I love bodysuits because they are very easy to mix and match with different skirts, shorts, and pants to create different looks. They are also very flattering because they hug your curves and nip in your waist. You can find anything from a basic, solid color bodysuit, to something more daring that would be the focus of the outfit. They can also be worn year-round, and dressed up or down, so they are a very versatile piece to have in your wardrobe. 

Yandy sent me some bodysuits to try out and I styled them in a few different ways so you can see the various ways they can be worn.

Lacy Teddy Bodysuit

The Yandy Edita Rose Teddy is actually lingerie, but can definitely be worn as a bodysuit. While there are sheer elements, there is also enough coverage for it to be worn in public without any worries. This is an absolutely gorgeous piece that is very feminine and delicate. I chose to pair it with a black leather skirt to contrast the femininity of the bodysuit, and they play really well together. I would wear this outfit on a night out with the girls! This teddy is a total bargain at only $19.95 and it is really well made.

Racerback Bodysuit

You can’t go wrong with a black racerback bodysuit for everyday, casual wear. This Jersey and Lace Bodysuit is super comfortable and has a little added style with lace details on the back and bottom. I paired it with black denim shorts for a look I would wear out shopping or even to the bars. This is a great staple to have in your wardrobe because you can dress it up or down and match it with a lot of different bottoms. I would love to have one of these in a bunch of different colors so I could match it with a lot of different outfits.

Long Sleeve Bodysuit

It is also great to have a solid, long sleeve bodysuit that can be worn for a casual look or for going out. The Choker Plunge Bodysuit is the perfect choice because it has a flirty, cut out neckline, but is still appropriate enough that you could wear it to an office party. It is very stretchy and the material is actually solid enough that it isn’t see through – something that I always struggle to find! I always have issues matching tops to this sequin mini skirt, but this bodysuit is a perfect match. 

The great thing about Yandy is it’s size-inclusive! Check out their plus-size lingerie for some super cute bodysuits.

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

Yandy Slither & Slay Snakeskin Bikini

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

Yandy Desert Rose Multiway Bikini

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

Yandy Slither & Slay Snakeskin Coverup

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

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.
