Harveys Jungle Book Collection

I am so excited to partner with Harveys to bring you this post and get to share a sneak peek at their new collection of Jungle Book inspired bags. 

Harveys and Disney come together for a magical collaboration that explores the most beloved characters from the classic tale "The Jungle Book". Join Mowgli on his journey as he discovers new friends and learns the ways of the jungle.

PRINT DETAILS The print features Mowgli, Hathi Jr, Baloo, King Louie, and Bagheera on a turquiose blue leaf patterned background. The top of the bag is done in the black seatbelt while the straps are done in a camel brown color. I am in love with the black/brown mix of this bag.

The lining of the bag is the classic grey lining, and it has three open pockets on one side, with a zippered pocked on the other.

There is also a little ring to hook you keys to so they don't get lost in your bag.

The long crossbody strap is removable, as always the Harveys team has perfect, durable, hardware which is so important in making a bag that will last. 

I also love that the Medium Streamline Tote zips closed, and the Mickey on the zipper is a nice touch.

For me, the Medium Streamline tote is the perfect size. You can load it up, this fits my iPad Pro (13 inches) along with all of my other bag necessities (get my joke?) OR keep it pretty empty and it still has a nice shape to it.

Along one side of the bag is a fun piping detail that is the same color as the crossbody strap and handles.

LulaRoe Review + a Giveaway

Lularoe Review

Lularoe has been popping up everywhere recently and with the bright colors and comfy style it's no wonder why. 

I was so excited to try out some pieces when LulaRoe consultant Chelsea Nelson reached out to me.  

The following is a review post, although pieces were provided to me by Chelsea, all opinions are my own. Be sure to read the entire post because we also teamed up for an amazing giveaway! 

First up is one of my favorites. The Madison skirt.

I am typically a size 10 in skirts, and in the Madison I take a Medium. The length of the Madison is perfect, when worn at my waist it hits mid-knee. The waist is stretchy and has two pockets (anything with pockets is the BEST) I love that this skirt can be dressed up or dressed down.  

Next I have on the Nicole dress. I personally think this dress looks best when belted, although this isn't a pattern would have picked normally I think it's super fun for summer. The length is great and super comfy and light weight.

The flowy skirt is super flattering as well. I also take a Medium in the Nicole dress.

What LulaRoe has become super known for is their butter soft leggings. Let's just say Chelsea sent me two pairs, and I have already bought more. 

When paired with an Irma tunic, it's a super comfy outfit that also leaves you looking very put together.

The tunics run on the large side and while I am usually a Medium/Large in tops, I take a Small in the Irma.

I have two because I love them so much. I have paired them with everything from jeans and sneakers to tucked into a pencil skirt.

In the leggings I tried both the OS (one size) and the TC (tall curvy) I decided to go with the OS. I am typically a size 10 in pants. 

These leggings are so good, I haven't bought anything but LulaRoe since I tried these out. 

Next up are the Cassie pencil skirt and the Classic T.

I have worn this skirt so much since Chelsea sent it to me. I love the length and the thickness of the material makes it super flattering. I have worn it with and without tights, and with shirts tucked in and left out. 

This Cassie is a size Medium. It hits me in about the same place as the Madison skirt, mid to lower knee.

The Classic T is a super versatile item to have as well. The length is long enough in the back to be worn with leggings but it also works great tucked into the skirt. 

I am wearing a Medium in the Classic T. 

It's so hard to find skirts that are modest not mini. I think the next items I need to add to my collection are the Amelia dress and a few more Classic T's. One of the best (and worst?) things about LulaRoe is their patterns are super limited! So if you see something you have to snatch it up!

Ready to start your LulaRoe addiction. Enter the giveaway Chelesa was so kind to offer below. All of the details are in the rafflecopter post below (make sure you join Chelsea's Facebook group!)

Aerie Swim Review

Part of the reason I redesigned my blog to be Nicolina.Co is bring you more reviews about product that I love.

It took me a long time to find my perfect swimsuit brand. But I have, and today I am so excited to share why I love Aerie swimwear so much with this Aerie swim review. (PS this post is sponsored in no way by Aerie, all opinions are my own, but the post does contain affiliate links) 

I first ordered an Aerie swimsuit last summer, after I trying (and loving) their bras. Based on the reviews I read, the suits ran true to size, which I have also found to be true. I love that because elsewhere I have needed to go up a size (or two) to get the top to fit correctly (not so great for the self confidence). I am typically a size 8-10 in tops, Medium or Large depending on how tight across the chest, and a Large top fits me perfectly.

Most, if not all, of the strapless tops also have a tie strap which is removable. The cup area is where the Aerie swimsuits really shine. That is usually the most difficult part of the swimsuit to fit me, and with Aerie I don't have to worry about it.

Their bottoms are nice as well. I love that they have an options of different cuts and styles. They carry everything from a classic bikini bottom, hipsters, boyfriend, midi-waisted, high-waisted and sky high-waisted. I have a pair of the hipster, as well as the pair you see in the photo below which are the midi-waisted. The hipster is more of a classic bikini bottom with some extra coverage on the sides. You can see a pair of those here. I decided to go with the midi-waisted this time, because the reviews were so great, and I totally agree. They offer A LOT more coverage, without being too high waisted (I'm not sure I can pull that off). I am a 10 in bottoms usually, I ordered a Large, and they fit perfectly. I love that with the midi-waisted I'm not self conscience while wearing my swimsuit.

I always shop Aerie on sale, and right now they are having half-off swimwear. I have linked to some of my favorite pieces below. 

I love Aerie for more than just their swimwear. Their Aerie Real campaign celebrates real girls. They design their products for everyone from thin to curvy girls. They use girls of all sizes in their ad work and they don't photoshop out "imperfections". In fact, in their bra section, you can actually see girls in your size wearing each bra, it helps so much when shopping online!

PS. If you have sensitive skin (like me!) Honest Co sunscreen is the BEST!
