Ali Schilling in Black and White Solid and Striped Swimsuit

 I am counting down the days until I am sitting on a beach chair with a margarita in hand. This weekend, I am headed to Mexico with my best gals for a fun bachelorette party!

Maui Hawii in Solid and Striped

Get ready for picture overload, because Day 2 in Maui was a jam-packed day full of sunrise beach walks, poolside cabana hangs, couples massages, and an Ultimate Dinner that we will never forget.

We woke up at 5am on the second day of our trip. Thanks to the time difference, we really had a full day to experience the island. Since we were up so early, we made Nespresso’s in the room and sat out on the balcony and listened to the birds chirps and the crashing of the waves.  After we finished our coffee, we headed down to the beach to watch the sun rise.  We ended up walking a few miles on the beach and watching a group do SUP (Stand Up Paddle Boarding) Yoga! Maybe, I will attempt this on our next trip!

Anyone else over the cold yet?  It really hasn’t been too frigid in Dallas (sorry Chicago friends) so I haven’t really minding going sans coat.  However, in a few weeks I am headed somewhere warm and I could not be more excited. I don’t want to spill all the deets just yet, but it is going to be SO MUCH FUN.  In order to get ready for our vacay, I obviously have been on the lookout for a new swimsuit.  I have to say, I have never been a one-piece gal (due to my boyish figure), but recently they have been calling my name. Does anyone else love this trend?  A few brands I have been lusting over are Marysia Swim.  After trying on this bikini in West Palm Beach last summer, I have been regretting not making the purchase.  I think it is going to be a top contender for this trip.  Another brand I have been seeing all over my insta is Solid and Striped. I was first introduced to the brand by my friend Amy.  She was wearing the cutest striped shirt from the brand and every since I have been in full stalking mode.

Are there any other swimwear brands I need to be on the lookout for?
