Bikini/Reef | Shell Jewels/ Puka Kisses


As temperatures increase and daylight hours are prolonged, I am magnetized to the ocean and impatiently await bikini clad summer weather. Puerto Rico was a short but sweet taste and I loved every minute I was able to frolic in my favorite suits. This gorgeous design is one of Reef's spring 2013 pieces that I was drawn to instantly. The sunset color story and painterly print are beautifully eye catching while the bodice structured top is a great fit and unique to my collection. Paired perfectly with the shell jewels by Puka Kisses, the combination of it all sweeps me off into a dreamy state of tropical bliss. These hand crafted, Hawaiian creations are one of a kind, made with love and infused with the energy of two beautiful sisters who find these shells on the gorgeous shores of O'ahu. Whenever I'm feeling low or run down, I stack on bangles and layer necklaces with my favorite bikini and roam the beaches for shells and sea glass. There really is no better cure for a bad mood than to channel your inner Mermaid Goddess. 

I'm excited to have plenty of time to do that during the next few months as I take my Gypsea travels to new heights. I've quit my job, am selling my belongings and hitting the road for a few months with destinations like Tahiti, Bali and Australia on my itinerary. Its time for a change, a BIG change, and I'm ready to explore the possibilities that the Universe has to offer. 

Keep checking back for more surf stories, outfit inspirations, and globe trotting photo journals as I head off on my travels in about 3 weeks!
