Hey everyone! So the start of Fall happened just a couple of days ago, and here I am shooting in a bathing suit LOL. Tbh, in Miami, there's never NOT a time of year that you can't slip on your favorite bikini and take a dip in the ocean, so here I am. It was so unbelievably hot when we shot this, and in some of the photos you can legit see visible sweat. Just wanted to put that out there.
I wanted to talk about this bikini, because I swear it's hands down my all time favorite. It's from a brand local to Miami (woot woot) and it's called Maheli Heli Swimwear. I've know about the brand for a couple of years now, but their bikinis really made an impression on me at an event my brand (LYNK Studio) was vending at. I'll never forget, we were packing up, and I walked by their stand because their setup was cute (duh), and I laid eyes on the Bronze EMMA Bikini Top and was like " *gasp* I'll take it!!". Without trying it on or anything, I took the plunge and bought the set. I'm crazy, but I have zero regrets, fam. Forget the fact that the color is flattering for my olive-undertones, and even more gorgeous in the sun, BUT the material of this bikini is so soft...guys, it's insane. Which leads me to the fit of the bikini....SEAMLESS. Both the bottom and the top fit me like a glove, I couldn't believe it. Just like I have shitty luck with jeans, I have really shitty luck with bikinis, but this literally hugs my body perfectly. I know I'm hyping this bikini up so much, but it's real af! So, naturally, whenever I've been needing to pick a bikini, I always reach for this one.
This is exactly what I would wear if I needed an outfit for a boat, beach, or pool day. I paired my EMMA Bikini Set from Maheli Heli with these soft 'Tropichop' shorts I got from a set at Steps (that ratchet color coded store in the mall that I low key love). I grabbed my 'NISH' necklace from LYNK Studio, By Chari earrings (here, and here), and my Rare Atlantic woven bag (another Miami brand) to complete the look.
