With summer in full swing i’m always looking ways to keep myself cool while still looking great. I’m super self conscious and add in the fact that I’m halfway though my fourth pregnancy doesn’t help much when it comes to my need to feel comfortable. The Nuu-Muu dress line is allowing me to have some fun and fashionable options to feel good and look great!
My son is getting older and over the last few years, he’s taken swim lessons through his class. With that, I want to be able to take him to our community pool. However, I haven’t found the right swimsuit for me. I appreciate that there are cover ups, one piece swimsuits and other options for women who are modest.
School is finally letting out and you know what that means… Its SUMMER! Summer means fun in the sun and with three little kids I’m always looking for swimwear that is affordable, cute, and keeps the kids protected.
Little Me is perfect for your growing baby or toddler with bathing suit sizes ranging from newborn up to 4T. I have to say that I really love these pieces on my kids. I am totally impressed!… [read more]
This summer is a new change for us. My husband was offered an amazing job in another state a few months ago. He’s been getting settled in and getting our new place ready for us. We are ready for a change! This summer, I hope to spend time in the sun. My son has a brand new pair of swim trunks and towel. I haven’t worn a swimsuit in years.
I don’t know how the weather is where you live, but here in North Carolina, it is that time of year that you don’t know if it will be cold and in the 60’s or hot and in the mid 80’s. This time of year I am always running out the door with a coat on and normally am able to take it off about lunch time. I want to let you know about a few super stylish pieces of clothing that will help you transition while staying stylish at the same time.
What if I told there was a workout pant that you could wear in the water and on dry land? Would you think I was insane? Or would you want to run out and get yourself a pair? Well, if you’re ready to make your workout a splash, then you’re ready for Vyve’s Splashpant.
Made from compression fabric, the Vyve Splashpant was designed to allow you to bike, run, and swim all in one workout. You can wear them for water aerobics, at waterparks, to the beach, or anywhere where you might get wet. Or if you just want a workout pant that hugs your body without being constrictive.
As a super pale girl, I’m not someone who spends too much time in the sun or in the water, unless I want to become a lobster. And when I do take a dip I like to cover up my thighs so they are protected from the sun and so no one can see my cellulite. Yes, I’m going there. I’m excited to be able to wear these pants over my suit, whether I’m going for a swim or just spending time outside by the pool.
I also appreciate the diversity of these capris. I’ve used them many times while I workout and have found they don’t interfere with whatever position I contort myself in, or try to at least. I feel like they kind of wick the sweat away and help keep me from getting overheated.
Because the Vyve pants are designed to tightly fit your body and run small, I ordered an XL as recommended by the site. I usually wear a medium or large in workout pants, depending on the fit. I’m glad I went with the larger size, but I did have some issues with the fit. I have a long body and short legs. This means I often have trouble finding pants that fit my body just right. They are usually too long in the legs and too short in the lower torso.
I had to really work to find the right location on my leg for the pant. If I didn’t line up the Splashpant perfectly with my knees, they would cut the circulation off on my calf. I also found that the pants fit a little too low on my tush and did work themselves down a bit during my workouts.
Again, this is not really a reflection on the pants so much on my weird shaped body. Although I do wish workout brands would offer more fits in their pants and/or tops. We all come in different sizes so it would be nice if curvy girls with short legs and long bodies could find the perfect fit. Regardless, I still plan to rock the Vyve Splashpants in future workouts and in or around the pool this summer.
Have you tried Vyve Splashpants? What do you think of this water/land capris?
A few months ago, I returned home from my first press trip for Beauty Brite and was so embarrassed from seeing my pictures that I started doing PiYo, a workout program that combines pilates and yoga! I wanted to slim down and improve my core strength. I love both pilates and yoga and wanted a low impact workout.
When it comes to fashion and style, we opt for what is practical and affordable. I tend to shop at the same few stores for clothing. Even for our son, since he is growing, I aim to buy his clothes at only a few stores.
