Doggie (Stand-Up) Paddling!

Paddling boarding is so fun, but paddling boarding with your pup is even better. Since I run and hike with my dog Meena, why not take her paddle boarding? My dog is fat. When she walks her bum waddles a bit, and her stomach bounces back and forth. Almost weighing as much as me, I was skeptical I could get her to SUP. Equipped with her life jacket, Meena plopped on the board with her tail eagerly wagging, and a big grin on her face. It didn’t take much coaxing at all. She really kept her balance, which is more than I can say about my first time.
So here it is, a snap shot of Meena and I cruising the Newport Backbay on Independence Day.
( This picture was taken just before she jumped off the board and threw me into the water…. It was good while it lasted!)

Swell has finally launched Minnetonka, and I am in love with this awesome shoe brand. Authentic suede boots and moccasins are essential to any
boho-fashionista’s wardrobe. They pair great with MinkPink Slasher Denim shorts, Billabong Brooklyn leggings, or Angie One Shoulder Drop Tunic Dress. Plus, Minnetonkas can run through the woods without making a sound. How cool is that?!
Check out our favorite model and style icon Kate Moss rocking the Minnetonka Front Lace Hardsole Knee Hi Boot.

These shoes really makes your outfit feel so effortless and cool! How would you rock the moc?

(Your Name Here), meet Tigerlily.
I’ve always admired Australian fashion. Edgy and hip, with a slight nod to retro 80s, but grounded by a casual laid back beach culture. Similar to here in Southern California, surf and the ocean influence fashion, but do not compromise style. Enter Tigerlily, my favorite brand of the moment. Originated in Australia, Tigerlily has made its way to the United States with such a fresh take on fashion. Suede one piece bathing suits, fringe kaftans, high waisted shorts, and floral kimono wraps are just some of the pieces in the line.

I am so excited to be able to carry an extended assortment at Swell. Be the first to rock Tigerlily. Let me know if you love the brand just as much as I do!

For the month of July, SWELL is hosting a Tigerlily Pop-Up Shop….showcasing a huge assortment of Tigerlily! Visit the shop and get 25% off all Tigerlily (with code: TIGER)
