Skateboarding and bikinis are two of my absolute favorite things, and I sincerely mean that from the bottom of my heart, I don't care how cheesy it sounds because it's my truth. So when I was approached by Arbor Skateboards Santa Barbara to model some of their new bikinis from Arbor Girls I was beyond excited! Considering it is almost Summer and the weather has been perfect, I didn't even blink when the opportunity hit me. Have you ever tried on any of the clothes from Arbor? They are so incredibly soft because they mostly use organic cottons/ bamboo and they produce them in sustainable ways- all in the USA. Read about their Eco Story here, it is why I love the brand so much! The suits are only available at Arbor Venice and Arbor Santa Barbara so I suggest going down to the local shop at 14 W. Anapamu to check out the goods.
Hope you enjoy the pictures from the shoot, it was sooo much fun!
