It's that time of the year!!! This past weekend I and the girls attended Essie Golden's 3rd Annual Golden Confidence Pool Party. This year the party moved to Times Square at the Grace Hotel. A swanky little boutique hotel. If you have been following the blog for a while now, last year was all about bringing out the sexy in all white. This year, I was all about fun & flirty nautical theme.
I am loving the new swim collection. There is definitely something for everyone in their debut collection. There is off the shoulder, fun one pieces, and cool separates. I was feeling the nautical vibes of this suit and cardigan combo. The cardigan is super cute and it's a nice coverup. It's made from the same material as the swimwear so it's nice and lightweight. To tie in the whole nautical theme I went with the Button Detail Cropped Pant. When I say I am in love with these pants- it's an understatement. I am wearing a size 16 and as you can see they fit amazing.
I went with the cool separates to make my bikini all my own. I paired the Bow Bikini Top in Red Geo with the Rouched High Waisted Bottoms in Red. I am wearing a 18 in the bottoms and a 20 in the top. I sized up for the bikini top so I can have more coverage. I wear a H bra, so to err on the side of caution I will size up so I won't have to worry about spillage. Everyone wants to have great cleavage, but you never want to feel like you are going to fall out at any given moment. This suit made me feel beautiful and secure. To keep the retro vibes going, I went with their white retro sunglasses (sold out unfortunately).
The energy of the event was amazing. There was two fashion shows this year- one featuring Fashion To Figure's new swim collection, and the latest from Boohoo. I got a chance to catch up with the lovely ladies of Eloquii and meet the awesome creator of Feminine Funk. Any chance that I get to catch up with my fellow bloggers is always a good thing. I also got to meet some of followers IRL so that was pretty surreal. I enjoyed some cocktails and popsicles- to be honest what else do you really need? Makings of a good pool party.
