Summer in NYC seemed to be the most interesting summer I’ve experienced yet. One day it stopped being warm and went directly into being so hot you thought you might actually be melting. With the “final days” of summer upon us, I try to wear all the summery breezy dresses I can before pulling on layers for the next six months.  View Full Post

Thankfully, it’s still pretty warm here in NYC! I decided to whip out one of the last summer dresses that hadn’t gone out yet. I absolutely love wearing cute little dresses like these. They are easy to wear and you can wear them to just about anything. 

Somedays you just want to feel girly!

The last days of summer are always the sweetest. Normally, back home in North Carolina, the air has cooled down and it’s still warm enough to be outside all day long without feeling sticky. Here in NYC it’s an entirely different story. The hair is heavy and sticky so all I really want to wear as of late is sheer fabrics, and very breathable cotton. 

Having chiffon pants is so incredibly cooling on hot days, I got mine from American Apparel and I can’t say enough great things about them. They are extremely comfortable and go with so much. I wore them with very sheer leggings, although normally I pair this with black shorts.

Normally, during the summer, I pick out a high waisted bikini or something all black. For this summer however, I chose something out of my comfort zone entirely. I had seen lots of posts on the Triangl bikini and thought it was very interesting. I kept seeing similar designs everywhere, from Target, to VS. I finally decided to order one and see what all the hype was about.

Is this brand worth the hype?

Here’s what I found when I got my bikini in the mail:

1. Everything does fit true to it’s sizing chart. Mine fit perfectly.

2. The colors are just as vivid as they are when you see them online.

3. The material is similar to that of a scuba suit and extremely comfortable and durable. Will not get “clingy” like some other suits do.

4. The way the bikini top fastens is by a buckle. It snaps on similar to a seat beat buckle and I think it’s extremely ingenious. Its virtually impossible to get it off without wanting to. 

5. It dries very very quickly.

I honestly didn’t have any cons for this. From a design standpoint it really is a good bathing suit. On a functional level, it’s far from the norm and the buckle on the back really sold it for me. If you need to buy one more bikini this summer, let it be this one.
