SunLove Shirts Review & Giveaway

Niki from Sun Love Shirts went from professional musician to business school graduate to stay at home mom.  After a few years with the kids she started missing her creative outlets and turned to sewing.  She loves playing with fabrics and sewing new designs.

"Being a stay-at-home mom is great and rewarding, but a few years ago I found myself craving more.  I missed the creative process of being a musician (I studied piano at one of the best music schools after graduating high school) and the intellectual stimulation of my job (I have an MBA and worked in the marketing field).  

Inspiration struck and I turned to sewing!  I love playing with fabrics, picking out color combinations that are pleasing to the eye, and creating new designs; it speaks to my artsy side.  For my nerdy side, I like the process of running my shop, looking at my shop stats, dealing with the SEO (Search Engine Optimization), ect.

I am originally from Europe, but have lived in Hawaii for 11 years now.  Not a day goes by that I am not grateful for the beauty the islands have to offer, the majestic mountains, the idyllic sunsets, the friendly people.  I love living in Hawaii, and I hope that my joy and happiness translates to my designs.

Thank you for supporting me and making it possible for me to pursue my passion for sewing."

Niki was so sweet and generous to send Alexa and Lillian each a dress from her collection.

We were immediately excited once we pulled them from their package because of all the bright, vibrant colors.  I mean, you can't scream 'summer' any more than these colorfully bold fabrics.

{I do have to apologize for the poor quality photos - the heat index was over 105 degrees when I took these pictures and my lens kept fogging up on me}

Alexa's dress is so sweet.  It's length goes to about mid-calf, which is super cute and trendy right now.
She loves the short tank-top style sleeves and the rainbow of colors that it provides.  

It's an excellent dress for a day at the beach, a summer party/event or just for every day play.
She's anxious to wear it on our trip to Mexico next year!  It's a 'beach' dress, for sure!!

Lilli's Sun Love Shirts dress is a spiral style with a major twirl factor.  She adores dancing and spinning around in this dress.  It's colors are equally vibrant and perfect for a summer setting.

Her sleeves are a more peasant style and she has an adorable contrasting sash that ties around her waist.
She begs to wear this lovely piece every day!

Both dresses are both fun and girlie!  We can't get enough of them.

As a mom of two active little girls, I look for quality above cuteness and I have to say that Niki's creations are top of the line!

Niki's shop is chalk FULL of beautiful boutique-style clothing.  You could spend hours admiring each and every piece.  They are all so beautiful and unique!

Here are a few of my fav's...

Sleeveless Kimono Dress

Garden Party Kimono Dress

Yellow Twirl Dress

Niki uses high quality designer fabrics for all of her creations.  The happiness she has living on the island of Hawaii shines through in each of her designs.
