National Beach Cleanup day

Getting an early start on National Beach Cleanup day, we hit the beaches on Oahu with some of our favorite ladies!IMG_9308

Collecting beach trash well into the sunset it was sad to see the never-ending debris and micro plastics left on the beach.

At San Lorenzo Bikinis, there’s nothing we love more than the ocean and all that lives in it. Keeping the beaches clean is not just one of our daily goals, it’s our lifestyle. In these busy modern days its easy to forget how connected to and reliant on humans are with nature. Clean beaches and clean oceans are so vital to our health and the health of everything on this planet.

So remember to pick up your trash and try to always leave the beach cleaner than you found it. There’s lots of creatures you’ll be saving in doing so.

Its important to me to cleanup the beaches, because just like a dirty room if you don’t clean it up its just going to pile up. So help us in cleaning our beautiful beaches bikini babes.

A Love Affair with Mary Leest

We spent the day with the most gorgeous and lovely Mary Leest (@maryleest) shooting our most beloved collection Le Romantique.  She stunned us with her effortless moves and beauty.

Mary is an Instagram sensation, her lifestyle photos are so captivating, she’s managed to obtain almost 1 million followers! Mary is also a well known Russian Youtuber and Fashion Blogger and trust us we did our homework on her and nowhere did it state that she was previously a Fashion Model!

We were so stunned when she told us that she used to model! I mean it totally made sense! She made it very clear that she knows how to be comfortable with a camera in front of her! It was amazing to see her work the bikinis how she did.

She knew how to flawlessly work the camera and made Le Romantique and absolute dream.Photo Aug 09, 8 22 50 PMPhoto Aug 09, 8 27 18 PM Photo Aug 09, 8 29 23 PM

We drove along the coast to discover a secret crystal clear & beautiful white sandy beach, off to the side of the road.

We walked through a tunnel of branches and gorgeous homes on the left and right of us, it opened up to this secret beach that looked like we just stepped foot onto the island of Tahiti.

Le Romantique Debut

Our NEWEST collection has us swooning.

We are obsessed with the prints, cuts, and feel of this whole line! We were able to spend the whole day with our blonde babes sipping some Rosé and enjoying the summer sun.

We wanted to give you a look into our new collection by going Live on Instagram and showing you all the new cuts and how they actually fit on a live person. This way at least you know how they fit and what the girls had to say about the feel and fit.

However, if you missed our live show we have some photos to show you! Also, how insanely gorgeous is our location?

Each girl, had 3 different looks so they were able to experience each bikini.  This collection is made with the same fabric as our Mind.Bali.Soul collection and that fabric feels like heaven. It is seriously so soft!

Those are some of my favorite bikinis that can really make a statement against the crowd.

Now, these are some of our favorite picks for outfits.

I had a really hard time picking them, I mean there are so many options, my computer had a hard time loading them all.

I picked these outfits because you can really do a lot with the pieces. You can dress them up by adding some heels or make them a casual Sunday fun day dress.

Spring Is In The Air

Whichever way you go, any road will take you to the North Shore. Ah, the life of an islander!  Where the air is clear and the lifestyle is much more laid back.

We thought let’s take the long way there, to really enjoy the gorgeous views, and escape reality for a moment. While enjoying the breathtaking scenery, we spotted a little yellow shack by the beach. Did someone say Papaya bowls? It’s our newest, favorite smoothie shop! The Sunrise Shack – refreshing, locally made and oh-so picturesque! We stopped there for a bite and snapped some pics before continuing on the rest of our adventure.

Megan Costello-9302.jpg blogEnjoying the rays of the sun and  the carefree spirited vibes that North shore penetrates so naturally. Shimming our way to the top of the mountain that overlooks Waimea Bay. It was breathtaking. WOW was our only word… We really do live in Paradise….

As the sun was going down, we headed to sunset beach where we set up our teepee & dreamt of this spring adventure never coming to an end.

Introducing our Spring Crush: TIA BLANCO

Meet our SPRING CRUSH, Tia Blanco. After following the surf goddess’ journey around the world, we knew this free-spirit was the embodiment of our Resort 2017 collection, Hawaiian Palms.

DSC_3234_REDIT-1Our latest collection was inspired by the unexpected discovery of paradise – whether it be through journeying to unfamiliar lands or simply by noticing something new in a place you know and love.

“Every time I come back to the islands, I fall in love all over again with the sport of surfing and the Hawaiian Ocean,” tells Tia.

DSC_3569_TEDIT-1  A little tropical magic – Braided Thong in Blue Hawaii & Pacific

The life of a pro-surfer is not for the faint-hearted… but that’s not to say it isn’t fun! In the constant pursuit of the perfect set, it’s safe to say Tia is a bit of a nomad. (She JUST got back from a surf trip in Tofino, Canada!) Thankfully, we were able to steal her for a day to do this photoshoot! The North Shore swells looked huge to us so we stayed on the sand. Of course, Tia was barely fazed but nevertheless, we saved our surf shots for the calmer waves in Waikiki.

An Aloha State of Mind – Strapless Knotted V Brief in Blue Hawaii & Pacific

Tia’s embodiment of Hawaiian Palms collection goes beyond her love of surfing. The 19 year old shows us that sometimes, paradise is what we make it. As a well-known vegan AND a devoted yogi, we learned from Tia that we can create our own paradises for ourselves by doing what we love. Though she and her boyfriend, Colt, travel often, they always make sure to set aside time to take care of themselves. Tia tells us that cooking healthy, vegan meals keeps her connected to her state of being, no matter where she is on the globe!

DSC_4238_REDIT-editb-1

Of course, we couldn’t do a photoshoot and not catch Tia doing what she does best. We hopped in the water and Tia showed us a thing or two about taming waves. With the Waikiki strip as our backdrop, we were feeling pretty lucky!

Ocean Blues and City Views

We’re pretty blessed to be based in one of the ‘kini capitals of the world. Powdery, white sands line the coasts and deep blue waters mirror the (often, though not always) cloudless sky, so there’s no shortage of awesome places to hold a photoshoot.
However, for this photoshoot we decided to switch it up and take our SL babes away from the shore and into deeper depths! With some help from the fellas at Hawaii Glass Bottom Boat, we were able to catch different perspectives of our island home.

img_9929_blog

We quickly got down to business, making the most of Diamondhead Crater and the Honolulu skyline.

img_9942-web   img_9571_blog

At the height of Hawai’i’s rainy season, Diamondhead Crater is its most lush, balancing the ocean azures with deep greens. Several other catamarans bobbed around us; CLEARLY we were not only ones who saw today as the perfect opportunity for a boat ride. Not going to lie, it was tough to stay focused when the ocean was just BEGGING us for a swim… it wasn’t long before we quit torturing ourselves and took the plunge.

img_0275-web

Few things in life are sweeter than the taste of the ocean, tradewinds, and some good tunes to match!

img_0557-web

img_0352-web img_0344-web

Do mermaids actually exist? Could we ever achieve that sort of oneness with the ocean? The general consensus is certainly “no.” (Not that a girl can’t dream!) But for those moments, we felt pretty connected to ocean. That may be as close as we’ll ever get… and for now, that’s good enough. We pondered this as our afternoon came to an end and we headed back to land.
