Body suits are totally in! And I am in love with this one piece from Forever 21. The perfect staple for your summer wardrobe. Bodysuits are not only a swimwear fashion statement, but you can throw on a pair of shorts, jeans or skirt and make it an appropriate outfit for daytime.

You literally can’t go wrong! Don’t forget to follow my social media @aroonmelane to keep updated on all I get up to in South Beach Miami. ❤

Stealth Swimwear *New Collection

Stealth Swimwear *New Collection

I was recently able to work with the amazing ladies behind Stealth Swimwear and try on a bunch of their new and upcoming suits. And let me tell you what, they are so cute and I could definitely see these being a hit for those girls who love being stylish and active in their swimwear. These suits will be launching on May 1st so get excited with this little sneak peek at the amazing new collection!

Stealth Swimwear is a relatively new brand which just opened the beginning of this year, 2016.

Summer is quickly approaching and I know I am always looking for new swimsuit sites, so I figured I would be one of the first to share this awesome swim brand with you and it’s definitely worth checking out!

Here are some of the awesome suits we were able to try on. So many of the people in this area were stopping us girls and asking where the suits were from! 🙂

My favorites: The blue metallic two piece & the yellow one piece

4 Trends to Try in 2016

4 Trends to Try in 2016

With 2016 officially underway, it’s time to leave last year in the past and embrace everything new—and that includes fashion trends. Though chilly temps might still be the norm in most parts of the country, spring styles are already front and center in the fashion world. And as much as I love my sweaters and boots, the latest designs for the spring season make me glad to live in a place where I don’t have to wait until May to wear them! Keep an eye out for these must-try trends to add to your wardrobe in 2016.

  1. Half-Moon Bag

As soon as Victoria Beckham’s half-moon handbag design walked (or rather, was carried) down the runway at her Spring 2016 show during New York Fashion Week, fashion-followers everywhere starting lusting after the new “it” purse. As Glamour writes, the crescent-shaped style has all the key components of a bag of the season: it’s highly Instagrammable, has a distinguishable shape, and, perhaps most importantly, it’s roomy enough to hold all of your must-have items. Check, check, and check!

2. Shimmer and Shine

The holidays may be over, but don’t put away the sparkly pieces that you rocked during the annual party circuit just yet. High-shine details and metallic shimmer are in for spring, making every day feel a little more festive than usual. PopSugar’s coverage of this trend can be helpful, as it covers everything from shorts to cocktail dresses, giving you a way to wear a NYE-worthy outfit year-round.

3. Surprising Sneakers

If one thing is for certain, it’s that this particular trend of 2016 is not made for the gym, tennis courts, or any other type of sweat-inducing activity. Spring’s sneakers put a spin on the classic shape, elevating the once-simple shoe to a more interesting level. While some designers opted for a pointed toe or luxe fabrics, others showcased colorful stitching and metallic finishes. To find your new favorite pair of kicks, Lyst’s shoe collection is a good place to start. The sampling of different designers from across the industry ensures you’ll find just the right surprising sneakers for you.

4. The Slip Dress

A staple of ’90s fashion, the slip dress is trending once again for the new year, and it’s sexier than ever. The subtle, strappy slip of decades past has gotten a makeover, with feminine lace, ruching, and hints of graphic color. Still, if wearing the lingerie-inspired piece outside of your bedroom seems too risqué, top your slip dress with a light oversized sweater or layer a simple tee underneath.

 Finding out about new clothing brands is always so fun! Excited to share with you guys an Australian clothing brand called Ashleigh Taylor

Obsessed with this color; and the slit down the leg gives it that special something. The great thing about living in Florida is being able to wear cute dresses like this and not freeze your bum off. But this dress would also look gorgeous paired with a long jacket!

Sweaters are such versatile pieces of clothing, this striped sweater was very oversized, so I thought it would be fun to try and wear it as a dress! Obviously this would be super cute paired with some leggings, but here in Florida, the leggings may be a little overkill as it is still not below 70 degrees!

A quick tip when shopping for comfy, oversized sweaters, is to look in the men’s department! I have quite a few sweaters that I adore, which I picked up from the men’s section, and no one would even know!

Just because it’s fall doesn’t mean you can’t still wear your favorite rompers! I love throwing on a cute, dressy jacket with dresses and rompers. It adds something extra to a look while also keeping you warm and cozy!

How to Throw a Bangin’ Summer Party// Paperless Post

SUMMERMOODBOARD

Plan on throwing a fun party this summer? Well here are some of my favorite DIYs and outfits for an awesome party!

One of my favorite party DIYs is an ice cream bar! How fun would it be to have all your favorite toppings and ice cream laid out for your friends and family to enjoy.

And of course I had to incorporate pineapples! Pineapples and watermelons are killing it this summer, and what would a summer party be without adding those into your decoration and outfit!

Another awesome DIY is fruit popsicles. I have seen so many recipes and videos showing some of peoples favorite homemade fruit popsicles, and they just look too delicious to pass up. And hey, it’s summer so it’s bound to be a bit toasty out, and what better way to cool down than with a delicious kiwi popsicle!

This mood board was inspired by PaperLess Post’s fantastic invitations! Their watermelon invitation is adorable and makes me want to throw a party just so I can get the invitations! Click here to check out all of their cute cards! I am literally obsessed with all of their invitations, I wish I had enough reasons to throw parties just to use all of their cards.

What are your must haves for the perfect summer party?

All of the images shown on my mood board were taken from Pinterest, to find out where to purchase these items and how to make them, check out my Summertime Party Pinterest board. There are lots of other cute and fun pins for you to enjoy.

So excited for summer! Only one month left of classes until I’m back home on the beach. 

Be expecting a lot more content after this month, and a little less during the remaining month. 😦 

Anyways! I was totally inspired by this black floppy hat I picked up from Forever 21 for $8, and this adorable maroon crop top! Most of the clothes in this post are from Forever 21, so head on over to pick up some cute new summer/ spring clothes!
