The only thing better than Aventura is Aventura when it’s on sale! Cooler weather is no where in site here in Georgia, so stock up on some of my favorites to help you break thru this heat wave.
I’m giddy in Deland, FL in the photo above, posing with one of several “Wings Over DeLand” murals in my bright capri’s. You can wear them rolled up or down…I like them down, but either way, this helps them transition into Fall perfectly. The “version 2” has a slightly higher rise for those of us who need a little more coverage in the tummy area. And it’s mostly made of organic cotton, but has a touch of Lyrca to help them stretch!

Ethics + Aesthetics = Sustainable Fashion ⠀ As consumers and influencers and trendsetters, we have so much voice to educate and change the world by just being careful in our everyday choices. Everything we do makes a difference. ⠀ My partnership with @aventuraclothing has taught me the meaning of fair-trade and things like ethical fashion and the use of sustainable materials for fashion. I cannot say I have 100% sustainable life ( that would be a lie) but I can definitely say that I practice sustainability in all areas of my life when I can. ⠀ My dress is fair-trade and sustainable and looks amazing (many of you complimented via DM). So check it out on @aventuraclothing and support ethical fashion! . . . #aventuralife #partner #ethicalfashionbrand #sustainablefashionbrand #fairtradefashion #ethicalfashioninitiative #leepaonthego
This is the Sutton Dress in black, being worn beautifully by fellow Ambassador Leepa Mittal (go follow her on IG – so much fun!.) There are dozens of reasons to love this dress: the shift cut that welcomes a breeze, the Fair Trade manufacturing, the organic and sustainable cotton fabric…but people…look at those POCKETS! #TakeMyMoney
This Boho top is 100% organic cotton crepe, Fair Trade certified, and sustainable! I’m wearing it here in Lilac Grey on our Family Picnic yacht cruise in North Carolina…it’s great for cruising or for heading to the grocery store – super versatile!
I’ll be super honest, I wear this shirt several times a week…it washes and dries like a champ. The cotton crepe keeps me cool in the heat, and I like that the back shirt tail is a little longer than the front, so it covers my rump.
Also – “sailing hair; don’t care” – and yes, that’s a rum daiquiri. Don’t judge!
I told you about the Britnee Tank earlier this year. The relaxed fit and wide scoop neck make it the BEST tank top I’ve ever owned. It feels comfortable, sporty…and still a little dressy and very feminine.
The Frankie Tank has the same neckline and is made from the same material…it’s just a different pattern. I love the medallion…and it will look super cute under a fitted denim jacket as the weather changes.
Last one, but I’m expecting this to give my “favorite tank” that I mention above a run for its money. Look at that sweet neckline. It looks perfect for my upcoming trip to Texas, where the heat index rivals our Georgia temps. Bonus: I can show off my shoulders, while hiding my wine-belly 🙂
Disclosure: I am a proud Aventura Ambassador. I love their mission and clothes..and I know you will, too!
