Underwear designed to disappear

all items pictured are c/o Soma Intimates: Soma Vanishing 360 bra / Soma vanishing 360 panty / Soma vanishing pants /

If you have been following along, you know I am a huge Soma Intimates fan. So when they sent me their new Soma Vanishing 360 Bra, Soma Vanishing 360 panty, and Soma Vanishing Pants, I knew I had to share them with you!

Underwear lines are something women have dealt with for years. There are so many brands out there claiming to have the ultimate products which disappear underneath clothing. While many don’t show thick lines under clothing, there isn’t anything out there that actually vanishes while being comfortable, and staying in place. How many times have you tried panties which don’t show lines, but also move all over the place? If I wanted to wear a thong, I would buy one! I wouldn’t wear a full coverage panty that rides. . .well you know where! Annoying, right??

Soma has always made underwear that stays in place, so when they sent me their Soma 360 Vanishing panty, I had high hopes. My hopes were well placed! These stay put! Yay! They also don’t show lines under pants; another yay!

I also want to give these pants a shout out. They have a hidden layer which helps hide lines, so if you aren’t wearing panties that vanish underneath your clothing, these pants will take care of that for you. They are a great pair of classic black pants which can be worn in any season; casual or dressy. Love that!

Shop Soma’s Vanishing 360 collection:

So this collection really is magic. I need to pick up some additional pairs of Soma’s 360 panties. They come in a ton of colors!

Have you tried Soma’s 360 collection yet? What did you think?

Thanks for stopping by!

Cool spring summer mornings

cool summer morning outfit how to dress in the fog outfits for foggy daysspring foggy day outfits

wearing: silver door knocker earrings / summer lipstick / white v-neck tee / vintage China necklace (one of a kind, similar here) / blue and white stripe waterfall cardigan / black snake belt / classic cut jeans / Gucci bag / summer nail polish / gold ring / floral print wedge espadrilles /

This time of year we have fog at night, and in the mornings. This means it can be in the 50’s during the morning hours, and then rise up into the 70’s during the day. When we have such large temperature swings, it is important to dress in layers in order to combat the cool morning fog, and be prepared for warm, afternoon spring weather.

Anyone who lives in the Bay Area knows to wear layers! Layers are the easiest way to live with fog which burns off, then rolls back in when you least expect it. I love this waterfall cardigan for foggy days such as these. It is perfect for combating the morning fog, and it is easy to take off when the fog rolls back out towards the Pacific. Since it’s thinner than a sweater or jacket, it can easily fold up and get stuffed into a handbag, or carried around. Love it!

I wore this outfit last week when picking up breakfast pastries at 85 degrees. They have the yummiest pastries which are great for breakfast or lunch. It was really fun grabbing a box-full for my family to share. When paired with warm tea or coffee, 85 Degrees pastries are perfect for a cool foggy morning! Love them!

What is your favorite way to combat the fog during the late spring, early summer months?

Thanks for stopping by!
