Little Pieces of Hope + Still & Sea

Thank you so very much to everyone who came out this Saturday to the Little Pieces of Hope trunk show at Still & Sea. It was so great to visit with some old friends in Austin, while also meeting some new ones. 

Still & Sea was the absolute perfect place to kick off the first day of Summer. Not only was I surrounded by good friends, but also BEAUTIFUL swimwear. Brigitte, the shop owner, is a genius when it comes to buying for her shop. Growing up in Hawaii, Brigitte was constantly surrounded by babes in bikinis. After trying out the corporate world for a bit, she decided it was time to go out on her own and pursue her dream. Fast forward a little and that's how Still & Sea came to be! Her shop carries brands such as Frankie's Bikinis, Basta Surf, Lisa Lozano and her favorite Acacia Swimwear. You can bet your bottom dollar I left the trunk show with some adorable swimsuits of my own! ;)

Pictured above is a Frankie's Bikini along with the LPOH Harlow Necklace, and Stevie Necklace
