SUMMER WITH HONUBELLE

How do you feel about amazing summer swimwear? Now how do you feel about frolicking around half naked in the wee hours of the morning just to catch that perfect light? I feel pretty dang good about it I’m not gonna lie.

The truth is, I would do just about anything for the sake of a great photo…don’t believe me? Challenge me, I dare you. I’m the kind of person that sees an amazing photo and always wishes she were in it. But hey, that’s just me.

When it came to shooting with Honubelle, Justine and I knew we had to capture some of Julia’s beautiful pieces by the Bow. Calgary may not have much by the way of swimming, but the river running through it sure is beautiful.

Julia has recently launched her new summer line and I could not be more in love with the selection of cuts and patterns she’s chosen to feature. The Nitinat Top I’m wearing in these photos is originally a bra strap styled back, but when expressing my concern for support, Julia simply restrung the ties to cross giving me a little extra reassurance. Gotta love that versatility!

“I draw inspiration from the ocean, summer days, tanned skin, salty hair, and feeling alive. I get inspired when I’m on a beach, whether it’s at our prairie lakes or on Maui, or when I’m daydreaming of eternal summer.” – Julia Barnes

There have been a few times I’ve mentioned my passion for sharing local brands and businesses here on LSS and when it came to Honubelle I just knew I had to feature it here. If you are a fan of sporty yet sexy swimwear you are definitely going to want to check out their website. The fabrics are soft and durable and the cut and style of the pieces don’t just look good but are functional as well…meaning you can frolic around all you want and everything stays put. For me, I am a huge fan of the cheeky bottom trend which gives your butt a little extra perk (never a bad thing am I right ladies?). My mother might say otherwise.

I’m curious to know, what’s your favourite style offered by Honubelle? My favourites are featured in this post, but I also really love the Tramontane top and the Keho bottoms! If you’re a BC resident, be sure to check out upcoming pop-up shops in your area!
