WEDDING LOOK

Outfits

Dress: Some Days Lovin / Shoes: Stuart Weitzman (old)

The trip to Croatia was for the wedding of some friends of Troy (bae ??) and I. It was a beautiful wedding, and took place literally right beside where I was obnoxiously standing and forcing Troy to take photos of me. #Bloglife, amiriteeee?!

This little town was called Rovinj, and I would highly recommend. It had these tiny little streets that were filled with cobblestones, V pretty. V Europe. Would go again for sure.

Can we take a second to talk about the freaking VEGGIES in Europe?! Yes, I am literally talking about tomatoes, cucumber, etc etc etc. ? ? ? I don’t know what we do in North America to so royally rob all vegetables of any flavour whatsoever (hello, GMO) but the veggies in Europe are so freaking flavourful! Flavour town over there. There was one restaurant that we kept going to again and again just to eat bruschetta. In the USA and Canada, bruschetta is kind of a bland and flavourless starter. Croatia? Sooooooooooo packed with flavour I couldn’t believe it. Not because they did anything fancy, literally just because their tomatoes actually tasted like a tomato. Go figure. ?

VINTAGE ROCKER TEE

Outfits

Tee: Chaser / Sunnies: Ray-Ban Clubmasters

Hiii friends!

Writing to you from my bathtub. With a pizza. Because I am a professional like that.

Today’s post is all about vintage rocker tees. I am so fucking excited about these shirts, because I genuinely love (and regularly listen to) half the bands on them! AC/DC is one of my top favourites of all time. ALL. TIME. Their music is just so fucking rad. So badass. So damn cool.

Anyways now I wear vintage rocker t-shirts so I can lead myself to believe I am also a badass rockstar and not a ginger with a faint burn from spending 15 minutes in the sun unprotected. I am also allergic to bananas. Not rockstar at all. #nerd

Side note: Recently I watched “Almost Famous” and was FUCKING OBSESSED. Kate Hudson killed it in that movie. I am only about 10 years late with this one but you know what they say… better late than never. If you are also a dork like me and haven’t seen Almost Famous, go watch it meow. You will instantly feel like a rebel, you rebel. 😉

SPLISH SPLASH

Outfits

Swimsuit: Zara / Headband: Zara

I was splishy splashing away in the pool with this cute little suit from Zara! Totally love the tie-up in the front, it seriously helps the barely-there cleavage I am rocking seem sliiiiiightly more substantial. Key word, slightly. But I’ll take what I can get. ?

It is honestly such a relief that summer is here in Vancouver. Finally. We sit through about 8 months of nasty hellish rain, for the gorgeous heaven that is the weather from now until August (hopefully.) It’s crazy how the entire city just comes alive when it’s sunny. I love it.

Hope everyone is having a great week! Happy hump day friends ✌?

SUMMER SUNNIES

Outfits

Cropped tee: Zara / Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters / Photos by Christian Jarlos

Craving some new shades for summer? This year it’s all about bright and colourful lenses on simple frames. That is a fancy way of saying buy some summer sunglasses that have 70’s style lenses. The more they look like something your father may have worn back in the day when he was a young lad, the better. 

If you can’t tell I am FEELING these shades. Get yourself a pair at Urban Outfitters too, they were only like 20 bucks. #winning

Go get your dreams today friends ?

SAILOR MOON INSPO

Outfits

Sailor Moon Tee: Urban Outfitters (similar) / Shoes: Joie (old)

LOL this shirt is great. It’s also great that I am wearing a mens XL t-shirt with no pants and heels. I am all about it. Weekend mode = no bra and no pants. Needless to say, this weekend I went full-on into relaxed Robyn. One of my bestest friends in the whole world was visiting Vancouver from New York, and we had a big reunion Saturday night. You may have been watching it go down on my Instagram (@robynkimb), but as the night went and the drinks continued to be poured the snaps got sillier and sillier. As those things do lol. 

Big week coming up for Skinny Belle, lots of new content coming your way. Fresh looks, yummy new recipes, and so much more. Lots of the time I have other bloggers or friends reach out and ask how I stay motivated. There’s tons of ways I do this (being an innately obsessive over-achiever is a major part of my drive) but one particularly fun thing I do is my weekly fridge-quote. Wild, I know. Each week I find an inspirational quote and post it on my fridge to help push my through whatever challenge/obstacle I have going on. Since I have so many questions about staying motivated and productive, I figured I would start sharing my weekly motivational quotes with the Skinny Belle community!

So here’s this week’s inspo:

“My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump of feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging.”

– Hank Aaron (baseball player)

Hopefully that helps get your ass out of bed this week, and motivates you to build your empire! And please do so in a sailer moon t-shirt. It just makes for a better day, promise. ?

CHAMPION

Outfits

Hoodie: Similar from Urban Outfitters / Bandana: Vintage from Melrose Ave

The 90’s and early 2000’s are back! It is hilarious, scary, and awesome all at the same time. I love it, I hate it, but yet again…. there’s this very strange but exciting sense of nostalgia I feel about the 90’s trends. It’s all very confusing. It is literally cool to wear giant oversized hoodies again. ALL ABOUT THAT LIFE FAM. All about it. I would like to formally thank whoever made this happen. Because my quality of life has significantly improved with this trend. In fact, I wouldn’t even be mad in the slightest if terry cloth tracksuits came back. Yup. I said it. It’s on the internet now which means I’ve gotta stick by it. 

But anyways, Juicy, if you are there, send me a suit. I wont be mad. Promise. 😉

CALL ME JOHN

Lifestyle

Top: Zara / Bottoms: Zara

Is it too much to ask to just be John Lennon? ? Loving the vibes in this series shot by Aneta Michniak. This is the second set that we did together on this day.

Busiest week ever this week, lots of great projects in the works that I can’t wait to share with you guys. Was so tired tonight couldn’t be bothered to make an actual dinner so I ate Mr. Noodles ? So shameful/ratchet to admit… but I legitimately love eating Mr. Noodles LOL. I guess I just have a very “diverse” taste in food haha. Oh well, gotta do you. And if that happens to be a Mr. Noodles once and a while, so be it. It’s all about balance. 

Early morning tomorrow to do a workout with my trainer at 7 am ?. It’s always hard to get up at that time but when I do I feel so much more energized throughout the day. Worth the wakeup for sure! Will put some of my workout on Instagram, so make sure you are following along! @robynkimb

ps: Covfefe. HAHAHA. Still funny. ???

STAY AND WANDER

Lifestyle

Bodysuit: Out From Under So Over It / Jeans: BDG

Okay so these jeans? Obsessed. I have been wearing them legitimately every single day and I will not stop. They are one of the few pairs I’ve found that actually fit my bum (shocking, I know) AND don’t gape at the waist. Does anyone else have that problem too? Where jeans are just tight in all the wrong places? It sucks. Far more than it sounds lol. Anyways ladies if you are shaped like me…. which is…. larger around the hip region *ahem* then you should pick these up too. They are my new go-to summer jeans for sure.

Love these photos shot with Rishad from Stay and Wander the other day. Went out to Buntzen Lake and it was gorrrrgeous! If you haven’t been before, go. 

Hope everyone is having a great week! Go get your dreams people ?

BY ANETA

Outfits

Top: Brandy Melville / Bottoms: Urban Outfitters

Having talented friends, it’s a thing of beauty. Did a fun little series with Aneta Michniak the other day. I am in love with this shoot because it totally channels John Lennon, and everybody knows the Beatles are where it’s at. Well, everyone who knows what’s good knows that. ?

Seriously feel like I missed out on one of the best eras. Back in the day, everything was badass. Rock and Roll, bad AF. Having weird bowl-cut hair, bad AF. Now you basically have to do something that will put you in jail for 20 years before anyone blinks an eye. ? I blame the internet.

Anywaysssss, enough out of me for today. Hope you guys love this shoot as much as I do! There’s another cool set from this one coming your way soon too. So stay tuned. ❤️

xx,

Ps: If  you haven’t checked out Aneta’s photos yet, click here. She’s an amazing photographer, so I suggest you do so!

PINSTRIPE PLAYSUIT

Outfits

Playsuit: Urban Outfitters

Well, this is going to be my uniform for the summer. That is for damn sure. I love wearing little playsuits, they are so simple and so fun to wear. The process of putting an outfit together is significantly shorter, and you are out the door enjoying the sunshine that much sooner. Needless to say, if you don’t have a strong playsuit game this summer… get one. ?

Off to go freckle by the pool! Talk soon.
