Attending and walking in fashion shows have always been like sunshine to me. Recently I walked the runway for one of my favorite clothing lines, Sunshine State Goods, during Miami Swim Week 2018! Sunshine State Goods is all about sporting a sunshine state of mind in sunny Florida, which I don't think anyone would argue that I represent well. I've lived in Florida my whole life and love our state. It was very exciting to see the creative and beautiful owner, get my hair and make-up done, and pick out which fun outfit I should wear. Most of us living the Florida lifestyle know that if you're not barefoot, you're overdressed...so, we walked barefoot. I went out there in my hat and "Florida" tank dancing my way down the runway. I saw all smiles in the crowd and that made me smile even bigger. Not only do I appreciate all the great sayings on Sunshine State Goods clothing, like my hat that says "Smile Florida" but, what I love the most is spreading the sunshine right along with this happy brand. It was a pleasure to be a part of the show and a fun start to Miami Swim Week this summer. As I've mentioned in a previous post, Sunshine State Goods donates a portion of it's proceeds to the Florida Wildlife Corridor and they are doing their part on the daily to help the sunshine state stay beautifully wild. They clean up the beaches, help sea turtles and recently donated 17,000 meal-worms to rescued Ibis at a wildlife rescue in Seminole County. The online shop has something for everyone and you'll be making a difference with every purchase! 


Below are some "behind the scenes" photos, my awesome make-up artist and my friend sporting her Sunshine State Goods gear when we were getting some sun right here in the Sunshine State. Just keep your face toward the sunshine and the shadows will fall behind you. Have a great summer!

BEST. SWIMSUIT. EVER.

When one of my friends told me he had heard about a company that let's you put a picture of your dog on your swimsuit (and knew it would be right up my alley of course), I went straight to my lap top and began searching for it. It didn't take long as the crowd-funding buzz had started to make it's way around the internet. I found the website and had a look for myself. This fabulous company is from Australia and called Petflair. Am I the only one who goes straight to the "about us" section or do you do that too? It helped me to see that this was a company I wanted to support because not only is it a great story with a unique idea but Petflair donates 25% of it's profits to Pound Paws (a charity for abandoned pets.)

I decided I needed to find out more about the making of swimsuits with our pets. These babies are $99, which is reasonable, especially for a customized suit with your dog! However, I was concerned with their Australian sizing because one of the mos…

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…

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.

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…
