College Football Season Approaches! Tailgate in Style With Stadium Standout Looks

Bows and Arrows2

As sad as we are to kiss the summer months goodbye, we’re just as excited to start planning our outfits for college football season.

Yes, your LLScene girls LOVE football season. So much so that we might be strategizing a little too early, but you can never be too prepared. This will give you plenty of time to plan accordingly. Even if you can’t make every game, you still want to look stylish and put together when you go to the bar or a friend’s house to watch the games on TV.

We are giving you style options for every age demographic that will be sure to put you in the category of a true “stadium standout” this season, no matter what Florida team you cheer for.

Florida Atlantic University

Let’s start local. Year after year, FAU’s football program continues to grow, and this year is expected to be bigger than ever. With the expansion of their team, staff and resources, it’s just a matter of time until FAU is on the map with other elite football programs in the state. Pick your signature color from red, white and blue. Run with that color and accessorize around it.

Regardless of whether the team wins or loses, you can tailgate in style this season with some of these local South Florida looks.

Florida State University

Lindsey is a Florida State alum, so this is always one of our favorite categories. Even if you’re not a die-hard FSU fan, the “garnet and gold” style can be pulled off easily. FSU style can come in all shapes, sizes and colors. For example, you can easily substitute maroon for the color garnet. You won’t have any trouble finding maroon pieces in fall. And add gold into your look with shiny accessories! Think boho: arrows, feathers, headbands, etc. All of those themes will apply when cheering on the Seminoles.

University of Florida

UF girls sure know how to tailgate in fashion. We’ve been to many a Gator game and can attest to this, as painful as it may be to admit. Royal blue and bright orange are challenging colors, but somehow they pull it off. Lucky for them, Gainesville is filled with boutiques that bring fashionable alternatives to college gameday. Lucky for you, these boutiques also have online stores. Here are some of our favorite gameday Gator looks.

Can we call you the lucky ones? Black and gold. There are women that dream of a world where they can always wear black, and you ladies get to all season long. Gone are the days of logo tees. Watch the game in style with sundresses, maxi dresses, rompers, shorts, tanks and tops—you can find them all in black. Bring in the gold with accessories and jewelry, like crossbody bags and stackable bracelets.

University of Miami fans have it a little easier than UF fans, simply because you can do a lot more with the color green. It’s okay to go off track from the color scheme of your team, but still stay in the color family, which is what you’ll see below. We don’t love the bright green and orange colors of UM, but we can live with the different shades of those colors.

Tortuga Time! Lilly Pulitzer Designs Print Inspired by Local Sea Turtle

Lilly release 2017_selfie

Sometimes, one special animal can inspire true artistry. Think of William Wegman and his first wiemaraner Man Ray that inspired the most well-known work from the artist.

Lilly, a rehabilitated loggerhead sea turtle, had that special something.

It had been a long journey for Lilly—named after the fashion house Lilly Pulitzer. Last October she was discovered with a deep, festering wound on her carapace. For more than six months, the employees at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach carefully nursed her back to life, using an array of treatments to heal her body: antibiotics, laser therapy, hydrotherapy and even good ole honey.

When she was finally ready to be released back into the wild in May, dozens of people gathered in Juno Beach to watch her return to the ocean. Among the wide-eyed spectators was 42-year-old Kelly Ring, who says her eyes became misty when the marine animal disappeared beneath the sparkling waves.

“I have been to several turtle releases. They are all special in their own right, but Lilly girl’s was especially touching,” Ring says. “It’s hard not to shed a tear when they hit the ocean.”

It was during Lilly’s gradual progress at the turtle hospital that she charmed Ring and scores of other locals. She even caught the eye of representatives from Lilly Pulitzer, one of the most iconic Palm Beach brands, and a partner of the Loggerhead Marinelife Center.

They were so inspired by the turtle’s triumphant return to the briny ocean that the fashion house commissioned a new print for turtle-adorned apparel. On top of celebrating her return to the wild, a percentage of the new print’s sales will go toward helping the staff at the nonprofit Loggerhead Marinelife Center with its conservation efforts, specifically in caring for injured turtles and funding education and research initiatives.

It’s all part of Lilly Pulitzer’s Print with Purpose initiative, which seeks to use fashion as a vehicle for positive change.

The new sea turtle design, called Tortuga Time, is now the company’s second Print with Purpose pattern to be released. The first under this pay-it-forward program was Jungle Hoppin. Released in April, a portion of its sales went toward the Rainforest Alliance.

“Inspiration for our second Print with Purpose came easy—we’ve learned so much about sea turtles from our friends at Loggerhead Marinelife Center and got to know a very special turtle, Lilly, over the past year,” a brand spokesperson tells Boca. “Lilly print inspiration often comes from the ocean and favorite critters, however, this one is very near and dear to our heart.”

Ring, who believes Lilly’s return to the ocean was a “true success story,” says she is excited about the new print. “I plan to be at the store when it hits the shelves,” she says. Ring is a Lilly Pulitzer enthusiast, and she attended the Lilly Pulitzer Beach Bash in January.

The print is featured on a romper, shift dress, T-shirt, popover jacket, maxi dress and a dress for children. The pattern, of course, includes a turtle shell design, as well as seagrass and intricate shells, and the primary color is aqua green with splashes of navy blue, lime green and primrose pink. It is iconically Lilly—bright, nautical and feminine.  Depending on the piece, the clothing may comprise textured rayon, cotton jersey, flat French terry or rayon spandex.

You can buy Lilly Pulitzer clothes with the Tortuga Time print on Loggerhead Marinelife Day, Sat. Aug 19, at The Gardens Mall. According to mall’s event page, 10 percent of Lilly Pulitzer sales will be given back to the Loggerhead Marinelife Center that day.

“There is no better marriage than Lilly and turtles,” says Ring, urging locals to buy Tortuga Time apparel. “Purchasing this print just solidifies the good work of both the [sea turtle] hospital and the philanthropic heart of this great company. Lilly herself would be tickled pink about this union.”

9 Fire Designers We Loved at Miami Swim Week 2017

miami swim week

It was quite the scene last weekend at Miami Swim Week, and LLScene was there to make sure we reported back on the latest trends in designer swimwear for bocamag.com.

In addition to the runway shows, we also attended the ESCAPE Miami Swim event. We partnered with Face2Face Studios on a “bestie Scene Swag giveaway” as their amazing stylists braided hair and manned the lash bar. As we mentioned in our pre-event coverage, ESCAPE Miami Swim is one of our favorite events simply because of the shopping we do. Year after year we leave this event with statement pieces and looks we still obsess over today. Noteworthy boutiques at the event were Please Don’t Tell BoutiqueIndieSwimPoema Swim, and (we gotta brag a bit!) Scene Swag.

On to the shows! All we have to say is that the 2018 swimwear collections hitting boutiques and department stores this year will not disappoint. One of the best parts about Swim Week this year were the inclusion of plus-size models who debuted their designers’ collections. There’s nothing better than seeing a beautiful girl of any size hit the runway with all the confidence and poise in the world. Not only do curvy models represent a huge portion of women worldwide, showing styles on plus-sized models gives buyers a chance to see the swimwear on women who represent most of their clientele. Why this is only just now starting to gain traction in the fashion world blows our minds.

Funkshion SW

Lindsey Swing and Lilly Robbins livin’ it up at FUNKSHION.

Each year FUNKSHION’s operation of swim week gets better and better because of its ongoing commitment to showcase noteworthy designers—but more importantly, feature new and emerging designers. In today’s full recap, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite swim designers and trends we saw dominate the runway at Miami Swim Week.

Versakini

Woohoo, go Kelsey! As mentioned in our last post, the owner of Versakini, Kelsey Duffy, is a friend of ours. Not only is she a friend, but we are true supporters and fans of her growing brand. Everyone can become a party animal during swim week, and Versakini proved that during the premier of its 2018 collection at the WET Deck of the W South Beach. Duffy is known for her asymmetrical plunging necklines and convertible swimwear. This Shark Tank alumni has a brand that has evolved into sophisticated prints and convertible bikinis, one pieces and coverups. Here are some of our favorites.

Frankie’s Bikinis

Give us a little Britney, NSync and Backstreet Boys, and we’ll show you a good time. This is exactly what happened at Frankie’s Bikinis sleepover party runway show. They proved that girls just want to have fun by showcasing their 2018 collection, which was filled with girly off the shoulder bikini tops, ruffled bottoms and flirty fringe. Here are some of the noteworthy suits that caught our eye.

Yestadt Millinary

Yestadt Millinary premiered its 2018 resort collection in partnership with Feather and Find at Hammock at the W South Beach. Every good swim look needs an accessory to complement it, and Yestadt Millinary’s versatile beach hat collection is a perfect paring.

Lila Nikole

Saturday night had the fever when Lila Nikole took over the runway to debut its technicolor chroma collection. This show was unlike a lot of the other shows we attended because of the vision behind it all. We were taken back to old school South Beach with all the vibrancy the MIA strip had to offer. A marinade of multi color kaleidoscope, floral, and neon digital prints popped off the runway on the curvaceous bikini-clad models to the beats of a live DJ. One of our favorite parts about the show was the mommy and me and daddy and me paired suits. Who doesn’t want to match with their little ones, while looking stylish doing it? Enjoy!

Sports Illustrated

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition came in with a splash at SWIMMIAMI. They premiered sexy athletic suits that came in all shapes and sizes. There’s nothing we love seeing more than sexy curves hit the SWIMMIAMI runway. Here are some of our favorite sporty, feminine looks for all you Boca-maggers out there.

Prey Swim by Audrina Patridge

We’ve always been fans of Audrina Patridge since her days on MTV’s “The Hills,” so we were stoked to see the launch of her new line, Prey Swim. Patridge has always had a sense of style we identify with, so we knew we were in for a treat. Her first collection was complete with emerging swim trends like golds, metallics, high-waisted bottoms and gingham patterns, and Patridge took full advantage of all body types to show the versatility of her line.

Mia Marcelle

Always one of our favorites! Mia Marcell’s 2018 collection fully embraced the “sleeves on swim” trend, and we loved everything about it. Sure, this trend might be hard to pull off under day to day beach circumstances when your main objective is to tan, but if you have a girls trip planned or even a casual BBQ, this look can be achieved by pairing it with a pair of coverup bottoms, like a maxi skirt. We also noticed our favorite 2017 Pantone colors, Rose Quartz and Serenity, make an welcome appearance. Look out for those colors when shopping this year; they’re here to stay.

Duskii

Duskii’s 2018 collection speaks to our sporty girls—we know you’re out there! These suits are perfect for the girl who loves a day of fishing out on the boat, but also loves a little fashion. The detailing on these suits is intricate and flattering, and the styles hug your curves in all the right places. You’ll never have to worry about falling out of your suit again because YOU ARE IN THERE. You’ll feel secured but not suffocated. In addition to the women’s line, Duskii has an adorable line for the kids, complete with matching floaties! How cute is that?!

Testing Vapour Organic Beauty’s Free Makeup Shade Consultation

We featured Vapour Organic Beauty in our July/August 2017 issue. To see more stories like this, subscribe to the magazine.


Hi there, beauty fans! We spoke with Vapour Organic Beauty co-founder, Krysia Boinis in our July/August issue of Boca. Unlike other organic beauty lines, each Vapour product is made of 70 percent organic ingredients and 30 percent natural pigments and essential oils. There are tons of color options for lips, eyes, and face. However, if you’re like me, sometimes it’s overwhelmingly difficult to pick just the right shade to match your skin complexion. Luckily, Vapour has a Free Shade Consultation that helps users get the best shade for their skin tone. I tested it out, and with the help of Boca’s web editor, Shayna, we documented the results below.

18 Crucial Summer Travel Essentials

Cover

Now that Memorial Day has passed, we’ve all got summer on the mind! This also means you’ve probably started looking into vacation spots. Whether you’re spending your summer vacation at your usual destination or plan on changing it up a bit this year, we’re here with the latest and greatest summer travel essentials of 2017.

Carry It On

Due to a serious problem with “over packing” we have yet to carry a bag onto a flight. We’re still trying to master that art, but thanks to the research we have done for this blog post, we think that this summer will be the one! Here’s how we plan on doing it:

Travel Bottles

 

Leak Proof Travel Bottles

Bring your favorite shower and beauty products on the go with you without worrying about them leaking or taking up too much space.

Happy Travels

Philosophy Happy Travels Set

Bring one of our favorite product lines with you on-the-go. These travel friendly skincare essentials are LLScene-approved.

Foldable Flats

Kate Spade Foldable Flats

Shoes can be the biggest culprits of them all when it comes to taking up too much space in your suitcase. These are fashionable and conserve space in your suitcase for more of your favorite things!

Squishee Packable Fedora Sun Hat

Squishee Packable Fedora Sun Hat

Hats can be one of the hardest things to pack. This fedora is one of our favorites because it can be crushed and crumpled into a suitcase or beach bag, then pop right back into place as if nothing happened. This hat is key for the summer.

Screen Shot 2017-06-02 at 12.07.16 PM

Traveler’s Choice Rome 20 in. Hardside Rolling Carry-On

It is lightweight and durable under the most intense travel conditions making it easy and convenient to lift and lower off a plane.

Converse

Converse Sneakers

If you don’t have a pair of these yet, you’re truly missing out. If you’re like us, you hate to have your bare feet exposed while walking through security. It’s more comfortable to have close-toed shoes when traveling anyways. There’s no need to ruin that vacation pedicure if you don’t have to. Another perk about our Converse? They’re easy to repack if you’re looking to conserve space in your carry on.

Kids are a Trip!

Traveling with children. For two late 20 somethings without children, this statement sounds pretty terrifying. Luckily, we have local mommy bloggers and resources at our fingertips to help keep our Boca Raton families organized and stress free while traveling this year. Here are some of our favorite products we came across while doing research on the newest and most convenient travel products for families.

gb Pockit Stroller

gb Pockit Stroller

Perfect for traveling families because it’s self standing when folded, small, and strong. You can switch from pushing the stroller to carrying it within seconds.

HDE Shock Proof iPad Case for Kids

HDE Shock Proof iPad Case for Kids

A shock proof iPad case is key for traveling with kids. We may not be moms (yet), but we know how to instantly calm down a fussy child: give them the iPad. That being said, having that beloved iPad shatter is the last thing you want to happen while traveling.

245361_40423_41

L.L. Bean Personal Organizer Toiletry Bag

In our opinion, one of the most useful toiletry bags out there. The pockets are in the most convenient places you can think of. This bag is water resistant with a built-in hook allowing you to hang it anywhere on your travels.

Babyganics Alcohol-Free Hand Sanitizing Wipes

Babyganics Alcohol-Free Hand Sanitizing Wipes

The essential of all essentials. You don’t leave your house without sanitizing wipes, so you certainly don’t want to travel without them.

Lumiere Waterproof Diaper Changing Pad 2

Lumiere Waterproof Diaper Changing Pad

You don’t want to leave for vacation without a sanitary and “travel friendly” diaper changing pad. The Lumiere Diaper Changing Pad comes with a bonus wipes dispenser and built in head cushion.

 

Fochier Luggage Carry on Spinner Set 2 Piece with 4 Double Wheels

Fochier Luggage Carry on Spinner Set 2 Piece with 4 Double Wheels

Hard shell luggage is key for durability and longevity. We’ve all seen the videos of luggage being manhandled by aircraft employees, so it’s worth it to invest in luggage that will last not only through your summer travel plans, but for years to come.

Fun in the Sun

On to the fun category! Here are some of our favorite beach vacay essentials that will make the walk from your beach house to the beach that much easier and convenient!

Rio Gear Ultimate Backpack Chair with Cooler

Rio Gear Ultimate Backpack Chair with Cooler

One of the worst parts about walking to the beach is carrying your beach chair. Instead of trying to convince someone else to carry it for you, buy the Rio Gear Ultimate Backpack Chair with Cooler. It’s a lightweight chair, which includes a cooler that can be carried as a backpack from one point to the other.

Beach Towel

Ban.do Vacation Beach Towel

Terry cloth oversized towel, keyword: oversized. This 70in x 40in towel is stylish and convenient because it comes with a belly band. Imagine the photo opportunities!

Glitter Bomb Water Bottle

Glitter Bomb Water Bottle

Stay hydrated and stylish with this adorable water bottle. You will be the talk of the beach.

Floats

Floats

No beach or poolside vacay is complete without one of the trendiest essentials of the summer—POOL FLOATS! If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop for your floating needs, Target is the place to go.

Neutrogena Beach Defense

Neutrogena Beach Defense

Our end all be all in sun protection skincare. This solution will feel light against your skin without clogging your pores and leaving long lasting damage.

Personalized Large Tote

Personalized Large Utility Tote

This large tote can be monogrammed with your name or initials, along with the type of font and color you want the tote to come in. Our favorite part about this tote is that it can be used all summer long and transition easily into future seasons.

If you haven’t noticed, summer is in the air. You know, that hot sticky summer weather us Floridians have become to know and love(-ish). Each summer our style guide changes, but some of the trends remain quite the same. For example, the color white. White will always be a summer staple, it’s how you implement white into your wardrobe that changes each year.

The Addison on Valentine’s Day.

If you’re looking to truly remain #OnTheScene this Easter, you’ll want to make reservations at The Addison for Easter brunch. The buffet is to die for, the mimosas are flowing and there are more than enough photo opportunities and backdrops to take advantage of. It’s also a great place to take the kids because the Easter bunny will be there making his rounds. What more do you need in an Easter Brunch?

What to wear?

One of the first questions we ask when planning for a holiday, is “what are we going to wear?” Lucky you for, we have done our research and know all of the local boutiques carrying the hottest spring trends. Easter is the time of year when you can really start to take advantage of spring to summer style and pastels—lots and lots of pastels. How you should dress depends on how you plan on spend your Easter Sunday. Floral maxi dresses and rompers are always our go-tos. Gone are the days of the traditional Easter bonnet and stuffy uncomfortable dress. Although, wouldn’t an updated Easter bonnet be kind of adorable for us 20 somethings? These boutiques always carry our favorite looks, but have really stepped it up for the spring season.
