Slimming Swimsuits + My Favorite Coverups

Hey loves and happy Thursday!! I am so excited because tomorrow I'll be heading out for my first girls trip in over two years! I am heading to HHI with a bunch of my high school girlfriends, and I can not wait!!! The weather looks like it's going to be amazing, so I am hoping to spend lots of time on the beach and by the pool! 

And speaking of time by the beach and the pool, I've had a few request to share with you guys some figuring flattering aka slimming swimsuits, so I've rounded up a few that I am loving along with a few of my current favorite cover-ups! 

La Blanca Mio High Neck One Piece 

You guys know I feel about this brand, they make the most amazing swimsuits ever! And I am loving this neckline on this one, and the gorgeous bright pink color! Also, everyones favorite La Blanca bandeau swimsuit is on sale in lots of different colors here!! 

This coverup will be arriving at my doorstep at some point today, and I am hoping it's as cute on as it looks on this model! Stay tuned as I'll be sharing try-on details later today on stories! 

This is another we suit that will also be arriving today!! It has great reviews, the price is amazing, and I am loving the fun print!! 

Loft Beach Floral Twist Plunge One Piece 

Have you check the beach arrivals at Loft, I mean they are SO SO good!! I love that you can wear this suit with the straps or a bandeau, and the ruching in the middle is perfect for hiding any tummy problems you may have. And this cover-up would look so adorable with this suit and many other ones too! Added bonus is right now Loft is offering 50% off your order with the code SURPRISE!! 

Bikini Coverup Casual Dress 

The quality of this picture isn't the best but I am loving the style of this one, and the under $20 price tag!! 

Malai Spotted Bikini Top  // Malai Spotted Bikini Bottoms 

Love every single about this suit, especially the colors and the print! And these high waist bottoms are super flattering.  

Ruffle Beach Tunic Coverup 

This adorable coverup comes in so many fun colors, and I love that it covers enough that you could also wear it as a dress, or over your swimsuit to go enjoy lunch after a day at the beach! 

 Front Cross One Piece Tummy Control Swimsuit 

This suit is perfection, and the stripe top draws the attention up there and away from your stomach, and for me that's a total win!!!

Weekly Recipes

 Coming at you guys late on a Tuesday with this weeks meal plans! And I actually made the greek chicken meatballs last night for dinner, and oh my goodness they were amazing you guys!! It was my first time ever making chicken meatballs, but it definitely won't be my last! 

I am planning on making these tonight for Todd and I, and I'll just do regular soft shell tacos for the kiddos! 

Feta Jalapeno Turkey Burgers 

I am really trying to eat cleaner right now for many reasons, with weight loss being a big one! So I'll plan to eat my burger wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun, and I am going to roast sweet potatoes as the side. For the kids I'll leave the jalapeno out of their burgers, and toss some frozen fries in our air fryer for them! 

Greek Chicken Meatballs In Lemon Cream Sauce

Again these were amazing!!! And for a side dish I served them over rice pilaf, and cut up apples for the kiddos!

5 On Friday

 ONE // 

Carson played in his last baseball game on Wednesday night, and they finished up the season undefeated!!! This year was by far the best year ever watching him play, all the boys on his team were amazing ball players! 

TWO // 

Last night I attended a soft opening event for a new restaurant that just opened up here on Daniel Island called New Realm. They took over what used to be Dockerys, which we really liked, but I am excited for something new! From what I hear they have the BEST mac and cheese ever, so that will be the first thing I order when we take the family there for dinner or lunch next week! 

These fruity pebble shots were delicious!! 

Here's a peek at this weeks outfits... 

This dress is SO soft and comfy!! For sizing reference it does run big, so size down. I am wearing it the xs and still have lots of room in it. 

Dress runs tts and for sizing reference I am wearing it in the small. 

FOUR // 

I seriously can not get over how wonderful our garden is doing this year! The strawberries and blueberries have been the kids favorite, and I come out here with Reese every morning to see what's ready to pick! Also, our garden boxes are from Grandinroad but they are sadly sold out. But I did find almost identical ones here for much cheaper!! 

FIVE // 

And last,  I leave this message to all of my sensitive soul sister out there!

May Amazon Purchases

Hello friends and happy hump day!!! I am coming at ya with last months amazon purchases! I actually purchased quite a few fashions items for myself and the kiddos, and they were all great, so I am excited to share these with you guys! 

I finally purchased some new lamps for mine and Todds bedroom, and I am in love with these! They are even prettier in person, and the price is so good! 

Hanes Ultimate Baby Zippin 

Now that it is officially hot here in Charleston I bought these for Reese to sleep in, and not only are they super soft they are so darn cute on her too! 

Ruffle Romper Jumpsuit 

And I couldn't resist this adorable bubble for $12, and the little tie back is so precious! 

First Walking Sandals 

I showed you these adorable sandals last week on stories, and they are so so cute and so well made! 

25 Flower Seed Packet 

These are the flower seeds that we planted in our little flower garden about a month ago, and they are all starting to bloom like crazy!! I'll have to make sure and show you guys later this afternoon when I get home! 

This is my favorite scent to burn during the summer, and I love that it ships the next day on amazon! 

You guys know this brand is one of my favorites, and I've never been disappointed with anything I've ordered! This dress arrives today, so I'll make sure to do a little try on and report back with size and fit! 

Goodthreads Ruffle Sleeve Maxi Dress 

This was the dress that I wore on Sunday that I shared on stories, and I can not say enough good things about it!! It runs on the big side and for reference I have it in the size small. 

Hawaiian Print Off The Shoulder Maxi Dress 

I own this dress in three other colors, and its truly one of my favorite ones to toss on durning the summer! It's so soft and such a flattering fit! 

Girls White Thongs Sandals 

I ordered these sweet sandals last week for Taylor, and they remind me of the much more expensive sun sandals for a fraction of the price. 

Cutest top for summer, and this material is so soft! Would look cute paired with jeans or white shorts and cute sandals. 

Terry Dolman Sleeve Dress 

This dress is so so comfy, but it does run big so make sure you size down. I have it in the xs for sizing reference. 

My mom bought Taylor this snow cone machine last year for Christmas and the kids have LOVED it so much! And yesterday we brought it back out and I realized we were out of the snow cone cups and straws, so I promptly ordered this set off of amazon! This are so easy especially when they have friends over and they are making lots of these! 

Taylor needed a new basket for her bike, and I loved this little white one. Also, the wicker is very thick and sturdy and it's perfect for holding all her little gadgets and stuffed animals. 

Under Armour Slides 

Carson is officially wearing mens sizes in his now :( So I had to buy him all new sandals and flip flops this year. He chose these slides and these flip-flops, and I have to say I wasn't too disappointed with his choices, and I was just glad he didn't want the neon ones ha!
