Five-O-Vintage Shirt & Eve7 Swimwear Bikini

Five-O-Vintage is all about the palm trees and eighty degrees. This unique brand has tropical "Hawaiian" shirts created in the tropics of Indonesia. All of the shirts from Five-O-Vintage are unisex. The light-weight button down shirts (like the one in this photo) are perfect for a warm, sunny day. It's super soft, too. It is made of 100% natural rayon. I found out on the FOV website that rayon is what the original Hawaiian shirts were made from back in the 1930's because it can absorb three times its weight in water. It's perfect to wear with swimsuits.

Customer service and production are very important to the Five-O-Vintage company. Jamie, the founder, is so nice and genuine. He's one of those guys who is happy to make the world a little nicer and he's doing a great job of it. I'm sure you can tell by this picture that Jamie and the FOV team definitely put a smile on my face many times! Five-O-Vintage can also proudly say they know every worker's name and that they have great relationships in all aspects of their business. Not every company can say that!

What originally attracted me to Five-O-Vintage's page was their palm tree logo, positive vibes and stylish photos. It made me want to hop on a plane to Bali...and wear a Five-O-Vintage shirt while riding an old motorcycle on the beach. A girl can dream (and now I'm one step closer!) You'll see what I mean when you check out their online store or follow them on Instagram. The brand radiates charisma with a vintage tropics feeling. I felt cool and confident wearing my shirt over my bikini, tied up with some cut-off denim shorts, as I stepped off the boat onto a dock filled with plenty of tourists and locals. My light, soft shirt with palm trees was perfect in eighty degrees. I can't wait to see the newest collection available online soon.

Warning: This may shock you!

One pieces are back and better than ever. They are naturally flattering and super slimming. The right pattern/design can enhance or downplay areas, while holding everything in. Teenagers, mothers and women of all ages are following the trend. And, you don't even have to be part of the skinny b's club. I’ve seen the Becca one-piece in this photo on all sizes and it looks good! It's also available in black, white and blue. It's a "plunge" that is tastefully see-through with a low back. Some brands cover less (like Billabong, L*Space, Ale and Vitamin A) and some cover more. Wear one with shorts and you'll have a body suit too. What's the harm in trying some on? I bet you'll get many compliments.

Live a Luminous Life

The logo is luminous. The bikinis are luminous. The vibes are luminous. The owner has the most wonderful, positive energy about her and her kindness shines bright. You too can let your light shine with this new, radiant swimwear brand called Luminous Sol.

I'm wearing the Ella top in a blush palm print that reverses to a lovely lilac color. Both are sensational colors on the skin! When you reverse the suit to the lilac side, the strings are still the pink palm print and it looks like heaven together. The fit and feel is excellent with an adjustable lace-up back. One of the things I loved most about it is that there was no padding, which made it look and feel smooth (along with a quick dry-time.) We are going to give away the sliding-triangle Anya top in the above sunset photo to one lucky winner on Instagram so, be sure to follow us, @foxyandpaige and @luminoussolswimwear, to be entered into the drawing.

I just love my bottoms because they are side-tie with a brazilian "scrun…

Vitamin Sea

We all need some Vitamin Sea, literally. Without the ocean and marine life, we cannot survive. Why not head to the beach in a tank that supports the sea? I wore the tank I’m sporting in the above photos to New Smyrna Beach, Florida. It happens to be the “shark bite capital of the world” where the locals, tourists and I embrace sharks. It’s important to understand and appreciate nature in all it’s capacities.

Being mindful about what we purchase is a simple, ethical step to help the environment. I really love sharks. Just the other day, I ordered my teacup Pomeranian, Foxy, a shark costume online from a big company. Foxy weighs 4 pounds and I got her the extra-small shark costume. It arrived in a plastic bag bigger than my desk and inside was another plastic bag plus unnecessary plastic “stuffing.” For the tiniest dog costume ever? Going out to people all over the world? So much waste of ocean-life-killing plastic. There wasn’t even a nice note inside either. When my Vitamin Sea packa…

The best way to do something is to do it!

Hello and welcome to my site. I am a “bikini consultant” as my wonderful friends call it. My goal is to help women of all ages with swimwear style/fit and inspire you to have the confidence to wear them. I truly believe that you need to feel good about yourself to feel good in your swimwear. So many women doubt themselves and seek happiness in all the wrong ways but it can only be found within. If we can get you confident while half-naked in a swimsuit then you can be confident in any situation! I’ve always loved swimwear and the lifestyle that surrounds it. I own over 100 swimwear pieces, enjoy tropical places, design/sew swimwear and know the industry. I love to help others and to make the world a little nicer. ;)  I've had my fair share of struggles but I believe that good can come from bad. I'm unique and real but I don't pretend to be perfect so, feel free to take everything I say with a grain a salt. Enjoying life is what it's all about…to me that involves bikin…
