Styled by 5: Rad Swim

Styled by 5 is taking a little summer break, but not before we leave you with one final look from one of my top swim companies ever. Rad Swim. If you don't know them, then prepare to find some of the cutest suits you have EVER seen.

Swim season has arrived! And that means it is time to show off your cute suits at the pool, at the lake, at the beach, and all of the above. Wait.... you don't have a cute suit!? Well I am here to help you out. Rad Swim is going to make all your swimmer dreams come true. They have everything, but these peplums are their newest and I am in loveeee!







Swimsuit: Rad Swim
Coverup: Honey & Lace
Sunnies: Forever 21

This peplum comes in different colors and cuts. I picked the pink peplum with reversible high wait bottoms. But I was so torn when I was picking because I loved the black and cinderella colors too. No matter what, I was high waist bottoms all the way though because I am a big fan of that cut these days.

Aince we are all sharing the same piece on a different body type here is a reminder of my sizing – I am 5’9″ and I generally wear a 10/12 – 10 on a good day, 12 on a not good day… you understand, right? So I ordered this swimsuit in a size XL. Normally I can get by with a Large, but I feel like these suits are cut a little slimmer - and this size is perfect for me. I love sharing my style with you, but I also want you to see clothing I style in other body types so you can find what is best for you. So feel free to check out how KaylynnBethanyJacque, and Lauryn styled this outfit as well! And watch for a new piece of clothing styled by 5 every month.

I have been trying to make an effort to wear watches more. There are two reasons why. First, I like the ability of having the time on my wrist so I am not tethered to my phone at all times of the day. That one should be self explanatory, but I am already on my phone enough running my business that any chance to not rely on the phone is good to me. Second, I have been reading lots of articles about how most successful people wear watches. That rings loud in my head because of the business I previously mentioned. Obviously, I want that to be successful so if a watch helps me on that path - then I am in!

I always have a really hard time deciding what color of watch band to get... but after a lot of thinking and debating, I went with a brown band because I knew I could wear that with blacks and browns and blues. Black is pretty but it is hard to put it with a blue or tan outfit, however a dark brown I feel like I can work into any outfit as long as I take a little cheetah into the ensemble. So I paired my all black with a cheetah scarf and brown booties and the watch was the perfect detail to tie it all together on a rainy day.

Normally this is where I share my sizes and what I ordered and how I felt it fit... but since this is a watch, there isn't a ton to say. So I am just going to cut that part out altogether on this post! So feel free to check out how KaylynnBethanyJacque, and Lauryn styled this outfit as well!
