For those unfamiliar with Texas geography, just west of Austin is the start of the Texas Hill Country. I feel blessed to have lived in this area for the past 10 years and try to explore what it has to offer any chance I get. Nestled at the start of the Hill Country is the beautiful Sage Hill Inn, with the beautiful, rustic farm feel any location at this inn makes the perfect backdrop for pictures. They have a gorgeous pool and the patio outside for dinner is absolutely stunning. I obviously couldn’t resist taking an array of fun photos with the gorgeous scenery!
With the Texas weather finally making its way to the high 90s laying back by the pool makes the perfect past time here in the South. Buying new bikinis always helps a girl get pumped for the summer and Maison du Maillot has the perfect array of bikinis and one pieces. The swimsuit I ordered from this online boutique reminds me of a mermaid and it matches perfectly with the fun pom-pom handbag I purchased from them. They literally have such a great selection of summer bags that would be perfect for any beach vacation or getaway you have planned. Maison du Maillot also offers such cute beachwear like long, flowy maxi dresses, cover ups, and kaftans (plus WAY more). This boutique has everything that a girl needs for the perfect summer. Seriously though, don’t get me started on how long my wishlist is! I think I could plan an entire vacation based on all of the outfits I have picked out! 😜
After spending all day by the pool, it is always nice to throw on something comfy (yet cute) to keep the party going. Something like this flowy dress by Mara Hoffman always does the trick! This midi dress is perfect for the daytime by pairing with some sandals or you can even dress it up in the evening by throwing on a pair of wedges or heels. The palm leaves on the top add a cute pop of color to the dress and make it even more appropriate for summer time! Did y’all see the back of this dress?? It has such a beautiful low back with a gorgeous tie.
Sizing wise, this dress fits TTS (true to size). I am wearing a small, but if you are on the bustier side I would say go to a medium. As for sizing on the suit, this was a little tricky for me so definitely know your sizing before you order. The size 2 bottoms fit me like a glove and were extremely comfortable. The sizing for this brand runs as a 1 (S), 2 (M), 3 (L) and 4 (XL). I also opted for a size 2 in the top but I probably could have gone up a size. The only thing I was worried about was the fact I have a really small rib cage and this top has a clasp back, so going up a size would have made the suit too big around. Either way, I normally wear mediums in my suits so the size 2 worked out really well.
I really hope y’all love the gorgeous scenery in these photos. Being out in the Texas country is so beautiful and relaxing and I really wanted to portray that with some of these images.
