Rashguard top and bikini: PilyQ via The Orchid Boutique // Skirt: Hinge // Flats: Loeffler Randall // Bag: World Market // Sarong: travel souvenir from Rio de Janeiro // Watch: Timex // Sunglasses: Inspired Shades 

Summer is in full swing and I couldn’t be happier!  If you’ve been following along with me on social media, you’ve seen that I recently went to the FIFA World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and it was most unforgettable experience of my life.  Seeing the futbol matches, hiking through the rain forests, and enjoying Copacabana and Ipanema beaches filled my days and I was lucky enough to see the beauty of Brazil first hand.

When I head to the beach, I have an affinity for sporty-style swimwear.  Its nice to not have to worry about straps and strings coming undone when you’re surfing a wave or snorkeling in the reef.  For my beach day, I wore this rash guard top and bikini bottom from PilyQ that I found at The Orchid Boutique.  I really love the print on it—part feather, part cheetah, and full on technicolor!  Who says sporty can’t be glam?

To head to the beach, I paired the rash guard bikini with a similarly printed floral skirt for some major print mixing.  In keeping the same color palette, print mixing looks effortless rather than over the top.  But once I got to the beach I traded my skirt for a sarong that I got from a beach vendor in Rio.  I love how it is a special souvenir for me to remember my trip to the World Cup with all of the competing countries’ flags represented on it!

To celebrate the World Cup, Fourth of July, and summer in general, I’ve teamed up with The Orchid Boutique to give you a chance to win your own special swimsuit or resort wear piece to celebrate the season!  One lucky reader will win a $100 gift card to The Orchid Boutique to select their favorite pieces from the creme de la creme brands in swim and resort wear!  I’m currently crushing on this maxi dress from Maaji Swimwear, this Mar Y Sol beach bag, and this palm tree printed bikini from Tavik Swimwear!

Entering in the giveaway is easy, just use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter via as many methods as you choose (the more entries…the better your chances!).  The giveaway will run through July 18, 2014 and conclude at midnight PST.  Good luck and cheers to an unforgettable summer!
