A Slice Of Life | Surf Leggings Guest Series by Stephanie Schechter

_MG_0814
Have you heard the news? Leggings, arguably one of the most comfortable items of clothing a gal can wear, have made their way into the deep blue sea! Yes, that’s right, I’m talking about the freshest trend of sliding fashion: surf leggings! The best part is that Surf Leggings aren’t JUST comfortable, but they are also cute and functional… not to mention versatile! Made of comfy, luxurious, and soft bathing suit material, these Maaji Capris can do no wrong. They are flattering and fun with a crazy cute combo of prints! Maaji has already won my heart with its exciting prints and adorable swimwear and lingerie, plus some amazing cover-ups… but these leggings… they get me. They are perfect for morning runs, yoga classes, of course surfing, and totally look cute as just a stylish statement piece that livens up any outfit for school, work, or a day of play! (more…)

A Slice Of Life | Flat Day Fun Guest Series by Stephanie Schechter

image-1
Ah, springtime in coastal Southern California. The sun is shining, the birds are singing… and the waves are FLAT. With the exception of the one or two rare days we are presented with some late Santa Ana winds and some early south swells, spring is certainly not the season for surf here in the golden state. Unfortunately, for us surf junkies, that means we have to get our exercise in other ways! Luckily, we live in a pretty rad place, so this doesn’t mean our only option for our daily workouts require a gym membership.

A Slice Of Life | Surf Bikinis Guest Series by Stephanie Schechter

Post Three - 1

Every spring, female surfers face a major challenge. No, not finding a lineup that isn’t blown out by 11am… but finding some bikinis that actually stay on while surfing- that still look, you know, cute! There are plenty of bikinis out there dubbed “Surf Swimwear,” but often times their fabric is stiff, their cuts are unflattering, and behold: they STILL fall off. Personally, I have found that for bikini bottoms, cheeky cut, seamless suits actually stay on, and flatter the form of any body type! Of course, for women who want to look awesome while remaining modest, there are plenty of seamless cut full coverage bottoms, which also flatter all shapes and sizes! As far as tops go, coverage can be key. Really, finding tops that stay on while surfing truly depends on body type. As a surfer on the bustier side, I have found that the more coverage and support, the better. Usually sports bra style tops stay on the best, but it is definitely not worth sacrificing style… Fortunately, there are some super rad brands that make some pretty rad tops that provide plenty of sporty support!
