I’m not sure if you noticed all the black girl magic on my timeline but here’s a little bit more if you’ve been under a rock for the last few weeks. You’re looking at the designer Andrea Iyamah (AI) swimwear from her Butterfly Collection. Swimwear is just a small part of this stylish, chic and so on trend, ready to wear brand. However the Butterfly collection in particular is giving me LIIIIIIIIFE. To be clear this isn’t sponsored post, I purchased every piece with my own coins. I’m infatuated with her swimwear line so expect to see me in one of her ready to wear pieces soon.

Funny story, you’re looking at an active golf course, ladies and gents. We decided to shoot this look while visiting my mother and my aunt; they live on a golf course. My aunt suggested we take advantage of the picturesque fairway that’s literally her backyard. The lesson here is listen to your elders. We had to keep our heads on a swivel for stray golf balls and carts. Yes I commandeered the fairway for a photo shoot, anything for the shot right?!
You’re looking at the Yomi Bikini and Malika Robe. If you feel like your getting a little modern-retro, you are, this was very intentional on the part of the designer. She’s definitely give you 70’s glam with a modern twist, especially with the robe. I love this bikini because it features, a high-neck top and a high-waist, bottom; a problem areas for a lot of women. The robe pulls it all together, believe it or not there’s more!

The Malika Shorts
The Malika shorts bring this whole look home. No shoes, so shirt, no pants, no service at your favorite seaside restaurant, no problem. These shorts turn the Yomi Bikini into a whole look. The shorts are on the sheer side but work well as a cover up while wearing the Yomi Bikini. Nude or dark under garments will get you where you need to go if you want to wear them a part from the bikini.
I did say I was infatuated with this collection, didn’t I?! I couldn’t leave you all without mentioning the one-piece swimsuit from the collection, the Mina. Everybody needs a good one piece. If you’re worried about weird tan lines, don’t, the string around the neck can be easily tucked away. It’s such a fun and vibrant bathing suit, it’s totally worth a few weird tan lines. The fabric feels like a dream on your skin.
Until next time gang…
