Happy Swim Week, lovelies. What better way to start things off than with a badass pool party editorial? My thoughts exactly.
I teamed up with one of my dearest friends and all around amazing person, Rachael Russell, for a photo series to help promote her charity. Rachel is the founder of Style Saves, a non-profit that builds confidence through clothes and provides a fresh start through fashion for the first week of school. Every year, Style Saves hosts a fundraising event at Soho House during swim week and it’s always one of my favorite events.
This year we teamed up to produce a fun photo shoot to promote the fundraiser and celebrate Swim Week. I am so pleased with the final photos! I had been brain storming all kinds of ideas of how to make this swim shoot different than anything we have tried here on CF.
One last thing…can we address how amazing the pool looks? I am so obsessed with this home. I want to give a warm and BIG thank-you to Jon Batchelor and Nancy Batchelor at EWM for letting us shoot at the beautiful pocket listing property on Pine Tree Dr, Miami Beach.

Introducing….photos by Fred Love!
I started working with Mr.Love a couple weeks ago for a series of styling projects for iShine365.com. We ended up with free time on set and took advantage of the situation with photos, of course. I threw on a bikini (naturally) and my favorite tee from The Deuce in Miami Beach. Fred is going to be helping me out during #SwimWeek and on different projects for CaptureFashion.com.
Don’t worry, David will still be contributing on a regular basis – but the man is busy. Check out Mobile Nations to see what D’s been up to lately.
These photos turned out super dope. Thank-you, Fred!
Here go the shoes I have in heavy rotation for summer. I am seriously feeling high contrast/black and white styling lately. It feels simple, clean and chic as hell.
This week starts #MBFWSwim. Cannot wait! x
Happy 4th of July! I’m about to go get my BBQ on and soak up the summer sun. I hope you all are doing the same, or something even better. xx
Polka Dot one piece by La Belle Rebelle. Cherry Pie by me!
Introducing my favorite swim suit of Summer 2013 so far. I mean, it’s PERFECT. I adore the color purple and am usually drawn to anything with tropical prints. As soon as I saw this baby go live on iShine365.com, I called up my girl Christina to have her place this incredible one-piece aside for me.
I picked up the Lexi one piece by Mandalynn on Friday and was blown away by the fit. It’s quite possibly the best fitting one-piece I’ve ever worn, and I think we can all recognize my deep love for swimwear. Here are the major features that make the fit of the Lexi so damn good: double lined, quality fabric, high-cut at the hips, REVERSIBLE, ability to wear from pool to lunch, and the most important – it gives me cleavage.
YUP. My number one “LIKE” for the Lexi one piece is the fact that it actually gives me cleavage. It’s a summertime miracle. xx
