Endless Summer with VERMILLI

Sometimes I forget that I live in paradise.  I try to work as much as I can so my love affair with the sun & sand gets neglected (my see-through white skin is def a clue hah).  Thankfully I'm friends with Nicole Vermillion,  a Honolulu-based designer who takes her inspiration from her beach lifestyle.  Her brand is called Vermilli, the styles featured here are just a few of my favorites & I can't wait to see what else Nicole will design.  I totally had a blast shooting her collection...It really brings me back to a place of R&R.

Let me introduce you to Vermilli...

Who wears short shorts?? I DO! These cutie-patootie shorts are SO comfy! It's also made of magical stretch fabric that is beach friendly for wet swimsuits & sand. Did I mention Nicole is an avid surfer? Smart design for an active lifestyle.
Check out her shredded tanks on the line back there :) sexy & sporty! 

Blouse + Necklace - Bamboo Sky.  Shorts by Vermilli.  Shredded Tanks by Vermilli.  Beach bag - Oliver.

Ok pause here for a haute minute...I LOVE THIS DRESS.  I need it in every print & color (*Hint Nicole...make me MORE!) The fit is easy & flattering!!!  Ladies, it's THE dress. The one we wear when we want to look AH-mazing without looking like we tried.  :) 

Did you also take notice to the strap detail in the back? Oo La La...LOVE. 

Dress by Vermilli.  Necklace by Ginger 13.  Heels - Aldo.  Watch by Nixon.  

This top is what kick-started the WHOLE collection.  It's also Nicole's favorite!  It's def a staple that every gal needs.  On this hot day I'm very grateful for the open back & chevron lace.  I went a little casual on this look but it's easy to take this to a fancy resort level. 

Fun Fact: Nicole has been sewing since age 8 for her Barbies because she wasn't satisfied with their own clothing :) hahaha some people are just born with straight talent & creativity!  (Can I just also say she's a legit painter too?! DANG...save some skills for the rest of us girl).

All these styles are available NOW for customers & wholesale! Contact info for Nicole & her line "Vermilli":
