Everyone loves a good inspirational quote, right? At Lime Ricki, we’re all about empowering you to be confident and comfortable – and that doesn’t mean only during swimsuit season. Body confidence lasts all year round, so keep some of my favorite quotes nearby to remind yourself that you are incredible and beautiful, inside and out.
“The best gift you are ever going to give someone – the permission to feel safe in their own skin. To feel worthy. To feel like they are enough.” – Hannah Brencher
“My great hope for us as young women is to start being kinder to ourselves so that we can be kinder to each other. To stop shaming ourselves and other people: ‘too fat, too skinny, too tall, too short, too anything.’ There’s a sense that we’re all ‘too’ something and we’re all not enough. This is life. Our bodies change. Our minds change. Our hearts change.” – Emma Stone
“My limbs work, so I’m not going to complain about the way my body is shaped.” – Drew Barrymore
“Young women, don’t worry so much about your weight. What makes you different or weird – that’s your strength.” – Meryl Streep
“I’m okay with having bad dance moves. I’m okay with having horrible lower teeth. That’s what makes me me, and, for some reason, it’s worked out all right.” – Katy Perry
“I realize everybody wants what they don’t have. But at the end of the day, what you have on the inside is much more beautiful than what’s on the outside.” – Selena Gomez
“I’m a human being, an imperfect human being who’s not made to look like a doll, and that who I am as a person is more important than whether or not I have a nice figure.” – Emma Watson
“I wish I could go back and tell my teenage self that I was beautiful. But since I can’t, I’m going to say it to you: Every single one of you is unique, beautiful, and worthy of a great life.” – Demi Lovato
“What would happen if, instead of worrying about what you had for breakfast, you focused instead on becoming exquisitely comfortable with who you are as a person? Instead of scrutinizing yourself in the mirror, looking for every bump and bulge, you turned your gaze inward?” – Lisa Turner
“Be confident in the skin you are in, because that is the only body you will ever have, the only place that will ever be solely yours.” – Deejae Harper
“I look my best after an entire hair and makeup team has spent hours perfecting me. I feel my best when I haven’t looked in the mirror for days, and I’m doing things that make me happy.” – Anne Hathaway
“A rose can never be a sunflower, and a sunflower can never be a rose. All flowers are beautiful in their own way, and that’s like women, too. I want to encourage women to embrace their own uniqueness.” – Miranda Kerr
“Growing up, I wish I hadn’t tried so hard to fit in… I’d tell myself to just embrace what you were born with because it’s beautiful and you were made that way for a reason.” – Shay Mitchell

I don’t know about you, but for me, fall is in full swing, whether or not the weather agrees! But because most days, it’s been refusing to get cool outside, I’ve been needing to find some wardrobe pieces that can smoothly make the transition that the calendar shows but the temperature doesn’t.
Here are my ideas for some of the best pieces to have in your wardrobe for the time between summer and fall. Let me know if you agree in the comments!
1. A Neutral Dress
You don’t have to pack away that summery dress you love just yet! Layer it with a cardigan or denim jacket and a pair of boots and you have a perfect fall outfit.
2. Bouncy Skirt
That bright skirt you’ve been wearing with every tee you own can still work for you during the season change. Throw a scarf on top and pair it with a fun pair of tights!
3. Basic White Tee
I know a basic white tee is a must-have for my summer wardrobe, and I’m not quite ready to give up that perfect go-to! Luckily, you can still wear white after Labor Day and pair it with a cute faux-fur vest or an oversized scarf.
4. Denim Cutoffs
Denim is a staple for fall; I don’t have to tell you that. But have you considered continuing your denim shorts into the autumn? Instead of pairing them with a bright, flowy top, try a chunky sweater and muted accessories.
5. Midi Dress or Skirt
Let’s be honest, the midi dress can work in any season! Trade your warm-weather wedges for oxfords or flats and you’re good to go!
6. Jeweled Top
If you love wearing a sparkly top to the office on a work day, have no fear – you can still pull it off in the more muted season of fall. Layer it with a darker-toned blazer that complements the colors, and you’ll still look cute and professional.
If the weather hasn’t made it too cold yet, there’s no reason to stop wearing those adorable sandals! Match them with some dark denim or layering pieces, and they are the perfect outfit inspiration! For more ideas, check out my post Back-to-School Saltwater Style!

Everyone talks about having the perfect little black dress, but what about the other essential: a little black swimsuit? Lucky for you, our new line is just that. I wear my black suit at least once a week because I love the versatility of styling it with a plethora of colorful – or monochrome – accessories. As they say, black matches everything!
