Warmer Days are Ahead
Spring is here, and summer is fast approaching. Before long, people will be flocking to beaches and other destinations to enjoy some sun and exercise. That means spending a lot of time in swimsuits. While it may seem boring, there are a lot ways to shake up your look, even if you only have a couple of suits to wear. Here are a few suggestions that can help you be ready for almost any situation.
Mix and Match Swimwear
Whether you’re wearing a one-piece or a bikini, you can add plenty of options to change up your look (or go from swimming during the day to a beach party at night). Pair your suit with a wrap, and you’ll have an exotic touch that will add a bit of elegance. Styles like the Tahiti Button Down Cover Up, offer a simple, yet formal look, while the Agua Bedita Telar Vest offers a more fun, flirty option. Skirts work well for this too. A short one gives a sporty day feel perfect for playing in the sand. A longer piece gets you ready for a night out of the boardwalk.
For a more casual look that’s even better for a day playing volleyball, or another game, shorts are the way to go. Depending on the mood, you can either go for function or style: denim, khaki, stretch, or sportswear. The Michi Strata Shorts offer comfort and ease of movement, while the Michi Deuce Designer Tennis Skirt is more fun and feminine.
Whatever you’re wearing, Bikini Luxe has some great ways to dress up even the simplest bathing suit. There’s a wide variety of jewelry available on the site, ranging from earrings to necklaces, and much more. Two of the best options are the metallic tattoo jewelry and the body chains. The Lulu DK “La Femme” is a more elaborate style, while the Indigo has a more understated look. Some, like the triple string gold body chain, go around the waist only, adding a subtle touch of elegance. Others, like the Gold Crystal Infinity Chain, goes around the neck and reaches down to the waist. One can also choose between choker necklaces, or longer ones such as the Thai Evil Eye necklace. See the full selection of earrings and bracelets here.
Of course, the easiest way to have a versatile look that’s easy to change depending on the situation is to get one of the available reversible swimsuits. Most are solid on one side, and patterned on the other. Others have patterns on both sides so you can pick with colors work best for the day. The reversible suits come in both one-piece and bikini styles.
Living Life In The Fab Lane with Shireen Sandoval
We are getting up close and personal with Miami's favorite entertainment TV Host on Deco Drive Miami. She's also a noted fashion blogger with a seriously unique style. From posh to comfy casual this Miami fashionista proves that style gets better with age. Check our exclusive interview with her here.
Q : Where do you live?
Q : How old are you?
Old enough to know better, young enough not to care.
Q : Tell us about yourself?
I’m an Entertainment Host, BFCA Film Critic, fashion & food blogger for WSVN, Channel 7/Deco Drive in Miami. I’m originally from New Mexico, but I consider myself a Miami girl now. I have a dog named Rigby, who is the apple of my eye and my boyfriend, James, is from London, England and he’s an amazing photographer.
Q : What’s the first thing you do in the morning?
Coffee!! Walk the dog and head to the gym.
Q : You’re gorgeous, what does your beauty routine look like?
Thank you! As much sleep as possible, sunscreen, moderate exercise, healthy eating and martini’s — shaken, not stirred.
Q : If you had to wear the same outfit for the rest of your life - what would it be?
A pouffy skirt from Ted Baker, a graphic t-shirt and a pair of Chuck’s (Converse).
Q : We want to know, what’s in your bag?
My trusty gold MacBook, iPhone, wallet, TV earpiece, make-up, hairspray and the kitchen sink if I could fit it. Oh, and some type of turkey jerky and the keys to my Jeep.
Q : Who’s your favorite musician to jam out to when no one’s looking?
Q : If you could travel anywhere in the world - where would it be?
That’s a tough one, I’ve been around it a few times. Currently, I’m obsessed with going to the Greek Islands.
Q : What’s your favorite thing to do in your down time?
Watching movies and some kind of reality TV (TLC is on permanent lockdown on the remote.)
Q : They say you are what you eat, what are you?
Veggies, fish, hot sauce, coffee, vodka and blue cheese olives.
Q : If your best friends could tell us something embarrassing about you, what would it be?
I can never remember where I put my phone - even when it’s in my hand.
Q : What are your favorite looks from Bikini Luxe?
I adore the Agua Bendita Aries bikini set and the Agua Bendita Quetzal bikini set; both are colorful, sexy and classy.
Q : Where do you get your sense of style from?
I’ve developed it over the years, comfort is key and I also like femininity a lot. I describe myself as gypsy/boho meets urban chic.
Q : What inspired you to start your own Blog?
Strangely, enough, pain. It was therapeutic at first, writing about the struggles I was facing, I never thought anyone would read it. As I grew as a person and journalist, the blog evolved into what it is today and surprisingly, I built a fan base who appreciates more than just fashion and food; they appreciate life stories and how we’re all connected because of the human condition.
Q : Tell us about your dream collab, who is it and why?
I’ve interviewed so many celebrities and designers, I find the best stories are the ones you least expect… ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
Q : Girls worldwide want to do what you’re doing, do you have any advice for them?
Know what’s going on in the world around you, be a solid writer and remember, journalism is about telling other people’s stories, not about being on TV. As far as blogging, find what you love and write about it, because if you love it, it’ll show and you’ll easily be able to command the topic.
Q : How can readers keep up with you?

In most cases its your best friend, but if they're not around you can always count on your boyfriend.
Boyfriends make excellent photographers when you want to post on Instagram for several obvious reasons:
- He doesn't want you to get mad at him if he doesn't do it
- He is afraid of you
- He love you so he will do it anyway <3

Sports Illustrated Models Have Nothing On You
We all have obsessed over a model that makes us regret eating those chocolate chip cookies you had for lunch. They are so beautiful, and they have the perfect bodies. Little did you know, it is so easy to be just like those bikini models in the magazine. We are going to show you how you can feel sexy like your favorite SI Model.
Yes those models are beautiful, but remember you're beautiful too! Everyone was made to be different. That's what makes you so special. You're one of a kind, so own it!
Besides, you would be surprised how many models are self-conscious and insecure. They would kill to have what another woman has, just like you're wishing you had what they have. Be confident about the way you look and no one can deny how attractive you are!
Let Your Hair Down
Don't be afraid to live a little. Have some fun, go to the beach, and just enjoy your life. Life is too short to be so serious and overly scheduled!
If You Look Good, You Feel Good
Subconsciously our behaviors display how we feel about ourselves. Negativity only attracts negative karma, so try getting in the habit of doing things that will uplift you. Do your hair in that extra special style you love. Throw on that fabulous designer dress that puts a little extra pep in your step. Next time you hit the beach throw on that designer bikini that boosts your confidence to an all time high. Whatever makes you happy, do it; all the time!
