TURBANS & TOUCANS - PANAMA VACATION STYLE
Summer, summer, summertime! Just a few months ago I was on vacation in Panama basking in the glorious sunlight hoping it would erase all of my Winter blues and as I laid there I couldn't help but hope NYC would warm up soon. We had a long winter but fast forward to today and we're all glowing in the big apple; ready for swimsuit season! For me swim-season usually means it's time to pull out my summer turbans, tassels and tropical printed pieces.
Speaking of tropical prints, let me tell you about my reaction to this swimsuit. I literally screamed (out loud) when I spotted it on ModCloth. It was right before my trip and with just one look at the tropical deliciousness wrapped up in this ultra flattering retro-style suit I knew I had to have it and in the blink of an eye it was at my door. Before this suit arrived I actually shared a peek in my IG stories but wanted to try it on first before recommending. Time passed, I went on vacation and now that I'm finally getting around to sharing this post, it's almost sold out (so sorry about that) so be sure to click this link to go directly to what's left because I couldn't get it to show up in the shoppable widget at the end of this post.
Anywhoo, I wore this amazing swimsuit on my trip but you know I couldn't stop there and had to go all out with my accessories for the ultimate tropical poolside-glam! I usually rock my #TurbansAndTassels whenever I'm on vacation but for this trip I decided to switch things up a bit and swap out my tassel earrings for Toucan earrings. I figured it would be a nice twist on my signature retro-style not to mention these earrings complemented my bikini perfectly. Don't you just love a good theme when dressing? I even went further, yes further, with the tropical bird theme by using my vintage silk scarf as a cover up and finished up the look with colorful tiki bamboo bangles, african printed fabric bangles, a tropical leaf-print turban headband and heart sunnies.
