Hi Ophelia babes!

How are you all living out there?! After the magic of Monday’s Solar Eclipse we’re still feeling pretty mystical over here. As we’re heading into the last weeks of August we’ve been busy in the shops getting ready for some new styles arriving (hint: hello, fall!) whilst still planning end of summer gatherings.

Speaking of, any fun plans for Labor Day? We know what we’re wearing (this retro number from L*Space that we – and every cute insta girl out there – can’t stop obsessing over) and we’re already picking the playlists too. Our watermelon and rose cocktails are already accounted for!

For this week’s Ophelia girl features we welcomed back one of 30A’s finest home after her year in Malibu, Paige – heyyyy!! Plus Alden is back from Australia too, so cheers to that and cheers to summer, forever. 

xo,
Ophelia

If there’s one thing we know for sure is that it’s been a hot, hot summer and we’re seriously looking forward to fall days. We’ve been keeping things cool by mixing up all our favorite mocktails (that can easily be non-virgin!) and wearing our favorite new white two-piece from Frankie’s Bikinis. We’ve managed to swing some end of summer beach days and stock some new arrivals as we prepared for one of our favorite events of the year, Miami Swim Week. Major style inspiration down on those beaches by the way! Make sure to check out this Instagram in the moment feed to remember all the amazing looks from swim week.

Even though our schedules are filling up with back to school activities, we’re still checking out this weekend’s 30A events, maybe we’ll see you out? Enjoy this week’s #OpheliaTheLove features and we’ll be back with more insider updates next week! Happy weekend, beach babes!

 

xoxo,
Ophelia

Hey loves! How are things? We’ve been settling back to our normal schedule after the magic and *welcomed hustle* that was Miami Swim Week! We’re also lamenting the end of summer day… Big sigh here.

While in Miami in between market and hitting all the shows we had a chance to attend some *amazing* parties and events with our girls while recapping our favorite new styles hitting next season. We’re so excited to share more about that as we receive new arrivals in! Vie Magazine followed along and shared quite a few snaps from our IG stories on their page… so if you missed it in real time, get caught up here! Lolli Swim might have stolen our hearts; think sunkissed California days and playful cotton candy inspired prints. Swoon… and the Acacia littles were the cutest thing we’ve ever seen on a runway.

For the week ahead we’re looking forward to wearing our Hey Girl top & Estella bottoms in the prettiest color of *2018*, Slated Glass, and catching some rays by the beach. Any plans on your end? We’re planning for fall beach bonfires now as the weather starts to cool off!  Maybe we’ll see you out! 🙂

p.s. naturally, we love seeing you guys sharing some of your favorite summer memories with us, so far! From the crystal-clear beaches of Florida to the beauty of the Bahamas, Ophelia girls know how to travel in style.

xo,

Ophelia

This week we collaborated with Noah Custer, known on instagram as @lilaussie_.

We’re fully obsessed over here with Noah’s work and are happy to see him creating amazing images and film out on the beaches of 30A. Noah’s an 18 year old rising senior at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts with all sorts of talent. He told us that “happiness” is a big part of his life and that so far in life he finds experience to be the most valuable thing.

We support that thinking Noah! Read on to see more of Noah’s work featuring the darling Mary Margaret below!

We asked Noah to tell us a little bit more about himself and here’s what he shared with us:

Through years of self learning and a little bit of school for filmmaking and photography, I am pursuing my dream of traveling the world, creating content and telling stories through my photography and filmmaking.

(btw, we have this particular top stocked in all locations, in all sizes!)

Plus, we’re pretty sure he’s got a bright future ahead of him! Thanks for sharing your work with us Noah! To see more of Noah’s work visit his instagram page and take a look at his youtube channel also!


In the midst of a busy week, we loved seeing our Ophelia girls out there in all our favorite styles of summer.

How was everyone’s 4th?! We hope it was filled with bright and sparkly fireworks, breezy beaches, and possibly one too many hot dogs (hold the ketchup) and watermelon slices (guilty as charged). We had quite a busy week here at Ophelia between all three of our 30A locations as it’s one of our favorite weekends of summer. We also shared some fun updates on social, which even included a swimwear style-watch Facebook live (make sure to check it out if you’re searching high and low for a swimsuit that works for your body!) celebrating National Bikini Day! Yes, it’s a thing, and we LOVED sharing some of the hottest current styles in swimwear with all our fellow Ophelia girls out there.

Our motto for current trends this year was easily ‘less is more’ (style alert: like this super chic indigo colored one piece from Mara Hoffman that doubles as our favorite bodysuit!) as we’re seeing more coverage from all our favorite designers this summer. 

This week’s Ophelia Girl feature is all about fresh takes on July 4th’s love of red, white and blue. Something about this year has felt as if rocking those colors throughout the year really works more so than ever, so make sure to keep a tab of your favorite red/white/blue picks online and in-store!

P.S. if you’re planning a visit to 30A anytime soon (or want some inspo on what to do this weekend if you live here!), here’s one of our favorite travels guides from Glitter Guide!

The last few weeks have been filled with exciting travels (we had so much fun in NYC buying for the shop you guys!) and adding a ton of new styles to the Ophelia online shop (we’re currently swooning over these Mara Hoffman picks), but we’ve finally had a minute to catch up and say hi here!

Plus we’re so excited to share some of our Instagram-style favs from this summer (so far!) from Ophelia Girls, both near and far. You guys have been rocking it around the 30A beaches and way beyond too.

You could be featured next, so be sure to check-in each week!

To kickoff the mystical and magical days of summer here at Ophelia, nothing makes us happier than highlighting some of our favorite looks from Ophelia babes from coast-to-coast. From the scenic coastal towns along highway 30A, and beyond, this summer we’re planning festive days spent jamming to our favorite new tunes, listening to the waves, packing a good book (looking this list over!), and of course evenings filled with good friends, chilled rose, delicious recipes and the most perfect Florida sunsets.

Best of all, though? The style and confidence that goes hand-in-hand with our best summer yet: from classic parisian-influenced pieces to summery, Miami-inspired nude basics, Ophelia girls have a timeless style curated by the inner-beach babe in us all, because you don’t have to live on the coast to embrace your Ophelia girl style!

We’ll be featuring our favorites each week over on instagram (of course) and here too! So keep tagging us!

P.s. don’t forget to shop the latest Ophelia swimwear additions online and visit any of our 3 locations. We’d love to meet you and help kickoff your best summer style, in the meantime here’s a few of our favorites of the week!

xoxo!
