Booties In Your Budget

I know, I know.. I’ve been MIA. I haven’t posted in a while because I simply haven’t had any time. I’ve been super busy working, traveling… and shopping! Summer is officially here and so are the trends. I recently purchased two pairs of open-toed, blocked heel booties and let’s just say, I am obsessed. These booties are currently my favorite warm weather shoe because they look super cute with almost any outfit.

Lake Norman, North Carolina

On Friday the 26th, my boyfriend, his family, and I packed up and took a road trip down to Lake Norman, North Carolina. Everyone drove because we each had to trailer a different toy..

I was so sick of the always-so-similar Victoria’s Secret swimsuits that I decided to explore other brands. I have countless bikinis that look the same: the standard string bikini that has no wow factor. I have a thing with intricate details and creatively designed backs because I feel like that’s what makes a swimsuit stand out from all the rest. Well, boy am I so glad that I found Maaji Swimwear.
