Amuse Society - Partner in Crime Shirt Review

Amuse Society - Size M

It is not always easy to find the perfect BFF clothing. When I came across these Amuse Society Partner in Crime Shirts I knew it was meant to be. Every trip I go on with my BFF (aka Marissa #irl) I like to make sure we are matching 😂 . 

I purchased these shirts from Lulu's, both in a size M. They are a slightly loose fit and the material is a bit thin (in a good way, not in a cheap only wear once way) which is perfect for staying cool in the summer and they are great quality – Completely worth the $35 price tag for each! I end up wearing this shirt way more often than I ever expected I would. I love the fit and it is extremely comfortable. It also has a really great small broken heart design on the front (pic of the front HERE). 

Currently these Amuse Society Partner in Crime Shirts are only available on the Amuse Society website in a white or faded army green color.

Maaji Cheeky Bikini Review


Maaji Top + Bottom - Size Small

I purchased this bikini over a year ago because it was on sale at SWELL. They had both the top and bottom available so I went for it and made the purchase (they were also a great deal at $23 each which is great for Maaji)! 

I have multiple Maaji bikinis in both size small and medium. I ordered this set in a small because that is all that was available since it was on sale. Both the top and bottom are reversible and the size small is a good fit. I like that the top straps go over my shoulders instead of tying around my neck. I was surprised when I received my order to find the top had padding (which I hate for my bikinis - just my personal preference). I ended up having to cut tiny tiny slits on each triangle and pulling out the padding. Because straps tie in the back (shown HERE) this top is adjustable and could fit a wide range of sizes. These bottoms fit perfectly but when I first received them I was slightly surprised with how cheeky they actually were. I am all for cheeky bikinis but these were way cheekier than I had anticipated. You can see the bottoms on me HERE + HERE. If I would have realized the cheekiness before purchasing I would have preferred it in a medium.

I have been buying Maaji bikinis for the past 5+ years now and I have a couple of websites I purchase them from when they are usually on sale (I sure do love a good bikini deal)! Below are the best places to get your Maaji for an awesome price.

Acacia Swimwear Bikini Review


I had been looking for a new black bikini that had a bit more coverage over all and this Acacia bikini was perfect! I was able to find the set on sale at swell.com right before I left for Aruba. Luckily their shipping is quick and within 5 days I received my new Acacia bikini! 

I ordered a small top and a medium bottom. This was my first Acacia bikini so I felt that a medium bottom would be my safest bet for sizing when considering comfort and coverage. The top and bottom both fit like a glove and is probably one of the most comfortable bikinis I own. Like most Acacia bikinis this one has the signature speckled print on the reverse side which I actually love how it peaks out along the edges. The top's wide straps around the torso are extremely comfortable and the bottoms moderate coverage are extremely flattering.

The price really says it all for the quality of this Acacia bikini. With each piece being originally over $100, you know before ordering it, it is going to be an extremely high quality bikini. Acacia did not disappoint and as expected the quality is amazing! 

I was able to find this Acacia bikini on swell.com. They are basically the online version of your local Cali surf shop and I highly recommend checking them out if you have never visited their site before.
They also have a great deals and sales with additional discount codes available. This was the case when I purchased this Acacia set which I found on sale and then their was an additional discount on sale items. Originally $115 each piece, I was able to score the top for $45 and the bottoms for only $27. As I mentioned already, swell offers two day shipping and regular ground shipping. Even though I was ordering this last minute before my trip I risked doing ground in hopes it would arrive on time. Swell shipping speeds were faster than they projected and I received my swell shipment within 5 days. 

Unfortunately, since I found this bikini on sale at swell.com it is no longer available and they only have a couple different Acacia styles still available. Lucky for you I have included my top 5 online recommendations when on the hunt for your next Acacia bikini! 

Happy Shopping !!
