Girls Night Out Style: Beachwear and Maidenform

beachwear

Being the Florida girl that I am, you will find me rockin’ the beachwear look more often than not. Beachwear doesn’t simply refer to swimsuits..It’s so much more than that! I’m talking about the easy, breezy kind of look that is at home both on the sand and out for cocktails. Speaking of cocktails…Every once and a while this mama just needs to cut loose and have a drink with her girls. And what type of outfit do I turn to for my summer girls’ night out? Beachwear of course! And lately, thank to a fabulous piece that was sent to me, Maidenform shapewear too!

If I had to choose one signature look, it would probably be a beachy maxi and metallic accessories. The maxi dress is a cornerstone of my summer style and you might be shocked if I told you how many maxis I own. Haha! Some of these maxis are on the more body conscious side and considering I’m still on my post baby weight loss journey and definitely rockin’ a few extra curves, I could be shying away from that part of my maxi collection, but, instead, I have no problem rockin’ my body skimming maxis…And that’s all thanks to shapewear like the Maidenform Shortie Slimmer.

You probably wouldn’t normally think that shapewear and beachwear go hand in hand, but, in fact, they go together beautifully…As long as the shapewear is super lightweight like the Maidenform Shortie Slimmer is. Our warm weather extends right on into our fall, so you definitely won’t catch me in hot, constricting shapewear anytime soon.

Thank goodness brands like Maidenform make it possible to wear slimming undergarments even in hot temps! My tummy looks flatter and my thighs look smoother, yet I’m not sweating. SCORE! Now I’m wearing the Shortie Slimmer with a longer dress here, but if shorter hemlines are more your speed, never fear…They work great with short dresses too!

Now that you’ve seen what I’ve been wearing, head over to my Monday Mingle partners in crime, Momtrends and Thirty Something Fashion, to see what they’ve been up to!

    Love that maxi! Since I don’t live near a beach, I can’t always get away with beachwear, but you better believe I live it up on vacations! Love the ease of it in the heat. It’s important to have a good shape wear piece in your closet. This one looks nice!
