On Maine Time



One of my favorite spots in Boothbay Harbor is the marina where my boyfriend's family keeps their boat (the one I'm sitting on- no random boats harmed in the making of this post). I love relaxing on the docks and admiring the details of the boats while a breeze comes off the harbor.

Fun fact: the boat is named Dea Latis after the Celtic goddess of water and beer- fitting for Maine! I'm always amused by punny or interesting boat names, so if you know of one, drop it in the comments :)

Triangl Sizing Guide

I always liked the look of Triangl bikinis, but was hesitant to order one since I couldn't try them on beforehand. When I decided to get one, I looked online for size recommendations and reviews, but only found videos reviewing the suit itself or blog posts for sizing in regards to very petite or very busty body types. 

I have the Chloe in Santa Rosa Splash, and decided to make a sizing post in the hopes that it may help someone avoid the hassle of returns and exchanges. For reference, I am:

Large top / Large bottom:
Height: 5'6"
Bust: 34C
Weight: 135 lbs
Body type: Athletic

According to Triangl's sizing chart, I should have been an XS in bottoms and a small top. This is what the rep on their live chat suggested as well, but since I had read they ran small, I ordered a small bottom and a medium top. When I received my order and tried them on, it was TINY on me! I could have gotten away with the medium top, but I prefer more coverage, so when I sent them back for an exchange I opted for a large bottom and large top. 

For another point of reference, my sister also has a Chloe, as well as this bikini. So unfortunately, I'm not sure how the underwire or bandeau styles run, but I imagine they run similarly. She is a small top and small bottom in each.

Small top / Small bottom:
Height: 5'5"
Bust: 34A/32B
Weight: 108 lbs
Body type: Slender


I hope this was helpful! If you have any questions on the quality, durability, care, measurements etc, let me know and I'd be happy to answer!

Date Night Outfit Inspiration

summer date night looks

Sometimes I find myself stuck in a rut when it comes to date night outfits. I know my boyfriend loves when I wear a sundress and sandals, but I get bored repeating that for every occasion! I partnered with Tobi to give you some outfit inspiration for nights out this summer, whether it's a date with your significant other or hanging with friends.

I love that Tobi offers 50% off your first order for new customers- it's the perfect excuse to try something new and refresh your style (some brands are excluded, but all the items I'm wearing in this post would be eligible!).
 
Look 1: Movie Night

A cozy cardigan paired with a tank, jeans, simple accessories and heels is a great balance of dressed up and casual for a movie date. This outfit works for dinner or drinks before or after the movie too; just remove the sweater and you're good to go! Bonus points for a floaty tank so that you can eat as much popcorn as you want (aka all of it).

It has thumb holes!! Perfect if you're like me and are always cold in AC'd places.

*for reference, I'm a 34C and usually a small- I'm wearing the US size 6

Look 2: Ice Cream / BBQ / Casual Dinner

Maxi dresses are perfect to throw on and go during the summer. They'll take you from a BBQ during the day to a casual dinner or ice cream date at night.

Look 3: Nice Dinner Out

I never thought I could rock a jumpsuit... but I am so glad I decided to try this one! I love it! I tried it on with textured metallic pumps and a crystal statement necklace when I first got it in the mail, and seriously felt Red Carpet-ready. Even when I toned it down with simpler accessories for this shoot, I still felt effortlessly glam in it. You could easily wear one through the fall/winter with a blazer or leather jacket and pointy-toe pumps.
