Not to be one of those girls who keeps talking about her birthday a month later… but let’s be real, anyone who knows me KNOWS I’m that girl. Like Beyonce, I ain’t sorry.

So I already talked about my very special birthday dress, but I also had another special delivery… my birthday bikini!

As soon as we booked our Cabo trip, I decided to splurge on the bikini I’ve been eyeing from KAOHS.

Ever since I first saw it on Anna Herrin – one of my favourite models – I HAD to have it.

As luck would have it, I was scrolling on my Instagram per usu and saw that this super rad swimsuit shop I follow, Boho Beach Babe, announced they were having a weekend sale so I ordered it right away as an early birthday present.

PS – you can use the sale code SUMMERBABE on all their sale items for an extra 20% off! ALSO, if you sign up for their newsletter, you can take 15% off your order. Cha-ching!

Speaking of sales, head on over to the Kaohs website because the Top, on sale it is!

… I guess I should also say that this is NOT sponsored – though that would be rad – I’m just obsessed like a psycho ex boyfriend with this suit. K moving on!

Now, let’s talk about the suit.

Despite being a Gemini, water is totally my element.

I have a secret space here in San Francisco. It’s the most gorgeous little cove that leads down to the bay.

Think Ariel mermaid rocks everywhere. I like to go there with some good music, good drinks, good green, and just chill tf out.

Whenever life stresses me out, I go there. In fact, I could of majorly used this spot when I lived in Dallas! Actually wait.. I did have a secret place there that had somewhat the same effect. Not so much water, but a giant fountain. Something about that water, y’all.

Now, back to the suit…

First and foremost, how gorgeous is that shell detail? I love it.

When I first saw the suit, I wanted it in Black, but I am so glad I waited because they released the Jean Blue colour this year which it’s pretty obvious I am a fan of blues.

You can check out all the other colours HERE – they recently released a totally dreamy white.

The top could easily be taken from the pool to the party. In fact, after we hit the beach, I wore it around the resort in my white high waisted maxi skirt from Spell {which is sadly sold out but there are plenty of cute other – I have the Bambi Split Maxi if you wanna try your Poshmark or Tradesy luck – which I’ll be making an account soon but more on that another day} & I could of easily worn that out…. but I had a dress to change into, of course! 😉

However, do know about the bottoms – they are super cute but SUPER low.

Like, extremely low.

Like lowwwww low low. Like as low as Lil Jon & The Ying Yang Twins want you to get.

Like, going to get personal with you guys, but you will have to make sure you are completely shaven down there. It probably has about an inch or two of coverage above the areas where the sun don’t shine.

The backs of the bottoms are pretty cheeky too – which is becoming more and more of a trend these days, but it is definitely more Brazillian cut vs full coverage.

Again, I cannot emphasize how LOW these bottoms are – they are meant to sit below your hip bones. However, I thought the top and it’s heavier coverage contrasted nicely with the low rise cheeky bottoms. And like…. it didn’t stop me at all. #YOLO…W?

Again… just being honest & probably giving too much visuals? But it’s something I wish I knew before I ordered, again tho it wouldn’t have stopped me tbh I just like knowing what to expect.

Regardless, they are VERY cute. The shell detail is hand sewn and immaculate.

It is easily my favourite bikini I own, and well worth the price. My name is Shannon Silver & I approve this swimsuit.

Now, I just need to find another beach getaway ASAP – way over the fact that pools in SF are NOT a thing. If anyone knows of one, holla at a player….
