A Pineapple Coconut Summer Outfit with Dasani

I'm participating in my first challenge sponsored by Lucky Community Dasani Drops! Would you be so kind to VOTE? It would mean the world to me! :)



I feel like I've been seeing challenges everywhere.... ones that are sponsored by Wallis, Kmart, etc. I happily voted for all my favorite friends, and never thought I would be qualified to be part of any of these contests.

Last week I received an invitation from Lucky Community to be part of the Dasani Flavorfy challenge. I was super excited until I realized that they probably chose everyone in the community, plus anyone else and their grandmas can join too. Haha. What a clever PR technique! Fashion blogger dreams shattered again. Ah whatever, it was still fun anyways. The challenge was to assemble a colorful summer outfit inspiration to resemble one of their new Dasani water flavor enhancers. (Flavors below!) I decided to dress pineapple coconut. The only thing I am missing is a giant pineapple on my head to resemble the Chiquita Banana lady.


I'm a huge fan of water flavor enhancers because this was a lifesaver for me during my pregnancy with Grace. I was so nauseated I couldn't drink or eat anything for the first 5 months.
Juice? VOMIT! Milk? VOMIT! Soda's? DOUBLE VOMIT! Even water... I couldn't stand the taste, even though it had no taste. At that time, there wasn't much variety like pineapple coconut or pink lemonade. Mio was a brand that had a few options to enhance the flavor of your water. It was surprisingly refreshing, so I am kind of excited to try these new flavors.



Top: Charlotte Russe       Skirt: ModCloth, also worn here       Belt: Ruche         Shoes: Nine West


Now that I have completely put myself out there as part of my first challenge, would you be oh so kind to vote? (Only if you like this outfit- obviously if you think it's hideous, please I beg of you to pick someone else!! :) Thanks so much! You guys are the greatest!
P.S- to join this challenge, go here and VOTE HERE!!

  19. What a fun challenge - it would never have occured to me to take outfit inspiration from something like a flavoured water, but it's true what they say; you can find inspiration anywhere :) I think you embodied the colour, and the effortless summery-ness, of pineapple coconut beautifully.

  24. Very cute outfit! Love it!! I know a lot of friends who couldn't even drink water during their pregnancy. Glad you had found something that works for you. My mom used to tell me all the time how she couldn't keep anything down and that I should be a 'good daughter' for making her go through that! :)

  49. Wow..love this skirt! Very retro-vintage vibe! You look lovely! I love lucky community, but it seems Lucky mag has a stereotypical "fashionable' image and only promote the posts that fit in to that mold! Hope you are having a wonderful day!
