Channel your inner mermaid with this rashguard from one of our favorite activewear brands, Zella.  The mesh back is a sexy touch, plus helps you to keep cool.

How gorgeous is this skirt?!  The marble fabric has built-in SPF, plus the seamless design keeps things lying smoothly.

All of Mi-Ola’s pieces are designed by a surfer and are made of fabric that has built-in sun protection.  We’re obsessed with the flirty ruffles on this piece, and love that it has a zippered pocket for stashing any essentials.


Free People Nusa Halter Top

High-neck tops are awesome for paddle boarding or swimming because they help provide coverage, but we love the interest and touch of skin the ladder details provide.


Jala Clothing SUP High Waist Bottom

Designed specifically for paddling, swimming and hot yoga,  these bottoms provide plenty of coverage.


Billabong Surf Vibes Tank Rashguard

While it’s designed for use in water, we think this top is perfect for transitioning to a night out as well.



How to Stay Fit On Vacation

You’ve been working hard, and you deserve a little vacation!  But, though you may want to take advantage of treating yourself just a little bit, your trip doesn’t have to mean abandoning your healthy lifestyle.  Ashley Pitt from A Lady Goes West and Pamela Hernandez from Thrive Personal Fitness share their top tips for staying fit and healthy while travelling.


Pack Right

 The key to staying healthy while travelling starts before you even leave home.  Throwing just a few extra items in your suitcase can help make staying fit on the road a bit easier.  Be sure you’ve got your workout clothes and shoes in there – Pamela also makes sure to pack a pair of hiking shoes to fit in a hike on her trip, and she also uses them as walking shoes to check out the city on foot.  She also never leaves home without a pair of compression socks, to wear both on the plane and after racking up thousands of steps throughout her day.  For Ashley, she makes sure to bring a reusable water to help her stay hydrated on the go, and also throws in a resistance band.  This workout tool takes up practically no room, but is great for stretching or fitting in a workout in your hotel room.  May we suggest ChaiseSculpt or FlexPilates Upper Body?
