Malia Mills was recently in Houston visiting her boutique on Westheimer and I got to spend the afternoon hanging out with this super cool gal, try on her clothes and taking pics! I don’t know who or what I love more – Malia or her store!! This very gifted designer began making fitted swimwear in college . Later a friend, who worked as a photo stylist, asked her to make a suit for a Sports Illustrated shoot. Well, the rest is history. Malia uniquely makes swimwear that fits like separates so that top and bottom fit perfectly on each woman. She then started making other apparel and now has 11 stores throughout the U.S. Nordstrom also carries her line. Her clothing is so comfortably chic, so Hamptons classic, so special.
These high waisted pin striped pants offer a great daytime look for your summer activities. The tie-on belt can be worn at the waist or worn like Malia styled it on me for this shoot. How chic is this cross-body/wrap around look! Whether you are heading down to the beach, going to a lunch outdoors, or heading to a pool party, these pants can get you there in style and a look all your own. The white swimsuit top fits like a bra ~ tailored and perfectly sized. This fun floppy hat and tote complete the whole look. Malia Mills is a one-stop shop to style an entire outfit. Be sure to stop by her store on the corner of Westheimer and Kirby.
A couple fun facts about Malia Mills:
~ Her mantra is “Love thy Differences”
~ She can dance a mean hula (prolly cuz this gal was born in Honolulu)
