The Avalanches: Subways (video)

theavalanches

The Avalanches are amazing. Or at least one of the few artists who can take a 15 YEAR BREAK from making music and come back with a new album that completely 100000% kills it. I saw them live in Barcelona and it was a privilege and a gift and also a dream. Do yourself a favor and listen to Wildflower right away, and watch the new video for single 'Subways' below because it's rad. 

Things I'm Into: Albion Fit Swimwear

Eternal struggle - why is it always SO DIFFICULT to find a bathing suit that isn't in a hideous pattern or, flip side, likely to be worn by everyone and their mother (J Crew). This is especially true for one piece suits and high waisted bikinis, my two styles of choice because I'm older and things just need to staythefuckinplace. Then one day I was browsing pinterest while on vacation with my boyfriend and stumbled upon a highwaisted combo that was so adorably paired (the exact combo pictured above) I figured it was something that a very posh style blogger had put together that I would be doomed to always search for and yet never able to duplicate. 

Thankfully I was SO VERY WRONG, and landed on Albion Fit's website. The company makes bathing suits and work out gear in patterns that are classic yet fun and in silhouettes that real people ACTUALLY WANT OT WEAR. What a shocking concept. Needless to say I was psyched, my debit card was procured, and damage was done. I was even more thrilled when my shipment came in the mail and the quality stood up as well - even the BF commented that the one piece striped suit I bought was sexier than any bikini I owned. WINNING, you guys. W I N N I N G. 

Here are a few of my faves from the site: 

the weekender - so cute and the back laces up!
