Amazon Swimsuit + Coverup Roundup

Sharing all my favorites from Amazon today! You can shop all these items via www.liketoknow.it/whenpigsflyblog This palm coverup is under $20 and I’ve worn it so many times since I got it last year.

This scalloped suit comes in a couple of colors! I’m wearing a medium but it’s plenty stretchy and I could’ve done the small as well.

My hat isn’t Amazon but it’s definitely worth $45 since I’ve worn it SO many times. Linking a similar one for $15. My cover up is a couple of years old but I found the same one for $13 except its white. https://rstyle.me/+U9SeebOBQD4xd8pA87aOqQ

Snakeskin is everything right now and I’m loving this for $20. I’m wearing a small.

 

This one piece is so cute as a body suit or swimsuit. I got the medium since I have a long torso but the straps are adjustable.

This was my top selling item of April. I’m in a medium and this two piece is only $15.

Another cover up that’s a few years old but still available for $13! https://rstyle.me/+r-aZRIam0jSFwE5vhpW1yw

 

Love this set and it comes in a ton of different colors and patterns. Sunglasses are also available via Amazon.

NUUN Hydration Tabs – I discovered these portable electrolyte tabs that you drop into your water a few years back when I was consistently running and needed hydration for my long runs while training for half-marathons! They come in many different flavors but personally Cherry Limeade is my favorite.

 

Trigger point Therapy Foam Roller – I have a love/hate relationship with this thing. Foam rolling is fabulous for helping out sore muscles but it definitely isn’t the most pleasant thing to do. When I consistently foam roll I feel like am less sore and able to go harder in my workouts the next day.

 

Zella Socks – These socks have grips inside so they never slide while you’re working out! I need more of these because I’m always wearing them.

Rent the Runway

If you’re anything like me then wearing the same outfit twice to a different event is pure torture. I know it’s silly but I love having something different to wear each time. The only problem is I’m definitely not a millionaire but that’s where Rent the Runway comes in! If you’re not familiar with how it works then I’ll break it down for you in this post.

Shop on either the website or through the app. First fill out your size profile. Then choose the dates you’ll need your rental for. It’s best to choose an arrival date for 1-2 days before the event to make sure it works and you have everything you need to wear with your rental. They have casual and formal dresses and accessories to choose from. I find it helpful to read the reviews on each rental and look at the pictures of people who have a similar body type to me before making a decision.

Another great thing about Rent the Runway is that they have thousands of rentals and there is a price range for everyone. I’ve rented dresses for as low as $35 and some over $100 for a more formal event. When you receive your rental it will come in a hanging bag with two sizes so you can choose which fits you best!

After your event returning your rental couldn’t be easier! You put your rentals back in the garment back and place the shipping label in the outside pocket. Then drop at a FedEx store or drop box.

My husband is in a wedding next month and I’ve already reserved my dress for it and as able to get my rental half-price because Rent the Runway sent me a promotional code.

With the holiday party season coming this would be a great time to rent from Rent the Runway! I’ll be happy to provide links to any of the rentals on my post. Just leave me a comment and let me know which one you’re interested in!

Love,

Megan

VF Outlet

I recently had the opportunity to partner with VF Outlets and shop a location near me in order to style three looks. I visited the Outlets of Little Rock location but there are 74 stores located throughout the country. Go to www.vfoutlet.com to see if there is a location near you!

When I arrived at the store I was met by their manager Stacy who was very friendly and helpful throughout my shopping experience. The store is arranged into sections by men’s clothing, children’s clothing, junior’s clothing, and misses clothing.

In the women’s section they have casual clothing, active wear, sleepwear, and accessories.

I loved this this fuzzy pullover that was only $24!

This cute tie-front sweater was only $17 and the skinny jeans were $19! Such great prices for quality items.

I also chose this pale pink workout top and fun lace-up leggings! Both pieces together were $25. Great for working out or running errands!

I thought this cropped fair isle sweater was so fun! I cannot wait until it is actually cool enough to wear this outfit. Special thanks to VF Outlet for allowing me to partner with them and style these looks. I cannot wait to shop with them again for great prices and quality pieces! Do not forget to take a look at VF Outlet on Facebook and like their page to receive updates on specials. Do you have a VF Outlet near you? Let me know if you decide to shop there and what you buy!

What To Wear For Engagement Pictures

Being engaged is one of the most exciting and happiest times in your life but what no one tells you is how many decisions you will have to make between now and getting married. I remember I was so overwhelmed with what to choose to wear for our engagement photos since these would be around forever. You know when you look back on photos from your past and cringe about your hair, make-up, outfit? I did not want that to happen with these photos.

Our photos were taken at the end of January but we got blessed with unseasonable warm and beautiful day. When preparing for our photos my photographer advised me not to wear anything white. I was kind of unsure about that advice at first but now I am so glad I took her advice! Her reasoning is that you wear white all day on your wedding day so save something special for that day.

I did two outfit changes. I am such a dress girl that I decided to make both outfits involve one of those. Both of my outfits were from Show Me Your Mumu. The first was the bell sleeve dress with the print. I loved the colors of this dress and actually already owned it prior to getting engaged which I paired with Tory Burch riding boots.

The second outfit was also from Show Me Your Mumu. It was the black lace dress that I paired with my red cowboy boots. I loved the classic look of this dress and chose it in hopes that when I look at these pictures in a decade or two I will still be happy with my choice to wear it.

As far as jewelry I wore my rings, a watch, small dainty Kendra Scott necklace and earrings. The funniest part of the whole day is we get out to the farm my husband’s family has and I am missing one of my earrings. Thinking it has fallen us we are all searching frantically for it. We never find it so we did the whole engagement shoot with my only having one earring on but you can never tell in any of the pictures. Got home later and found it in the hallway on the floor!

I had my hair and makeup done professionally prior to the photos because it really is not something that I am great at. Definitely splurge for those things if you think it would help you look your best!

My husband also made two outfit changes. He wore dark jeans for the first with checkered button-up. He wore a plaid button up and khaki Wranglers for the second outfit. My advice for dressing your significant other is make sure they wear something that is within their usual style. We wanted a more casual look for our photos so he selected clothing according to that.

My only regrets from our engagement photos are that I had barbie pink nail polish on. I wish I had chosen a more neutral shade or a french manicure. I also wish I had worn a more neutral lipstick instead of pink but at the time that was my go to shade. Overall I am very pleased with how they turned out even almost 3 years later.

And of course do not hesitate to have your fur children in your photos. We only had Reese at the time and she ended up in a photo with us that we chose for our save-the-date that was sent out to our guests! Questions about what to wear for your engagement shoot? I would love to help! Looking for a photographer in the Texas/Arkansas/Oklahoma area? I have your girl! She’s amazing to work with and also did our wedding. She can be reached via her website: Kendal Dockery Photography

Venice Travel Guide

Venice was our final stop on our trip to Italy. It’s truly a city unlike any other.

HOW TO GET AROUND:

Arriving by train will put you right where the Vaporetto (Water Taxi) stop. We bought an unlimited ticket for our time there. Fortunately most of Venice is extremely walkable and we did not need to use it much. Schedule and tickets here.

WHERE TO EAT: 

We had dinner one evening outside on the canal at Trattoria da Roberto. I had the delicious lobster pasta shown above in the photo. Our other favorite dining experience was actually a to-go lunch. Baci and Pasta opens at noon and you should be there prior to that to insure a spot close to the front of the line. He has pastas of the day that change but are all delicious. I had a ravioli in butter and sage sauce and a mini bottle of prosecco for under $10 USD. It’s one man cooking and serving which makes it a truly local experience. I highly recommend.

WHAT TO DO:

Drink a bellini! No, but seriously you should. They were created here originally and they are available in every restaurant and gift shop. We visited Doges Palace and it was unbelievable. The history and architecture must be seen in person to truly be appreciated. After our visit we explored St. Mark’s Square which is full of restaurants, shops, and the best people watching. We also toured Teatro La Fenice which is the opera house. It has been burned down and rebuilt several times. Unfortunately the opera was not in session when we were there. If you are able I would get tickets to a show and attend in this gorgeous theatre.

DAY TRIP TO BURANO ISLAND:

We took the vaporetto to Burano Island which about a 45 minute trip each way. It is a gorgeous and colorful town. We walked around exploring for awhile and had Nutella crepes at a local shop that were delicious. One of Burano’s biggest claims to fame is their lace. There is even a Lace Museum. I highly suggest going as early as possible because it does get crowded later in the day.

 

WHERE TO STAY:

We stayed at Hotel Rio and the location was perfect for sightseeing and close to many great restaurants. They will also hold your luggage on your check out day until you leave Venice. I highly recommend for safe, clean, and A/C included rooms!

 

Our trip to Venice was two days and I felt like that was plenty of time. The only thing we didn’t do was a gondola ride but it was so hot that we decided against it. Have you been to Venice? What was your favorite part? Leave me a comment and let me know!

 

Love,
