Each month, I team up with some of my blogging buddies for the How I Style It series-we all take one style idea and each put together an outfit based on it. This month, the How I Style It crew has teamed up to show you how we’re styling the tropical trend, like my tropical palm print swim look! Check out Becky, Della, and Nicole’s looks for some more outfit inspiration!

Palm Print Bikini Swimsuit
Let’s get REAL here for just a moment–I debated about posting the palm print bikini pics, but I did post them. Why? Because beauty comes in all shapes and sizes:) And this bikini made me feel GOOD about myself. I was really sad when Victoria’s Secret announced they would stop selling swimsuits this year (you can still get the PINK brand swimsuits), but Old Navy has stepped up their swimsuit game and I bought three different bikinis from them this summer! I felt supported by the top, which is a medium. And these are the BEST fitting swimsuit bottoms I’ve ever had! I usually wear a medium or large in other types of bottoms, but I sized up to an XL in these and they fit my big hips perfectly! This palm print is so on trend right now too.
Palm Print Coverup
To match, I picked up this palm print coverup. Now, while I don’t have to be matchy-matchy when it comes to prints, etc., I picked up this palm print coverup because of the fit and the material. It’s an oversized fit, so be sure to size down one size (I did not). WORD OF CAUTION: I originally found this coverup in a size medium, which I’m wearing, but I wanted a better fit and the store didn’t have a small. So I went to the other Old Navy in town, and tried on a small, but something didn’t fit right. Turns out the small was 3-4 inches shorter! I investigated, and the material between the two seemed to be slightly different, even though it’s the same product. So if you’re tall and looking for a longer length, see if you can find one of these that has the slight white tint to the inside of the fabric!
To accessorize, I added some fun drusy earrings that picked up the green from the palm print. My Tory Burch Miller sandals made for the perfect shoe (I want the neon pink ones so bad!). And if you’re in the market for a new beach tote, you need to get this one! It fits so much inside. Finally, what beach look is complete without a straw beach hat?
