WARNING: Instagram’s Beach Style Master Does Not Approve Of This Spring Trend
Meet Instagram’s master of beach style.
Halley Elefante, also known as ‘The Salty Blonde‘, is our latest #GaloreGirl obsession. She’s blonde, tan, understands how to wear hats and admits she loves beer (in her Insta bio). What is there not to like?
In the q+a below, Halley shares some very important thoughts on the “monokini”.
Galore: What do you think is the biggest misconception about being a “blogger?”
Halley Elefante: That we do nothing all day and are rich bitches. That really pisses me off when I hear that one and I’ve gotten it ALL. I was broke my whole life, nothing was handed to me and I had to really work for what I wanted. So for someone to assume that I just got lucky is infuriating. I know we’re not saving lives here, but I love what I do now and put my all into it, so if that’s inspiring to someone then I’m over the moon. I just would like people to know that there’s more to it than taking cute snaps on the beach.
What’s the secret to the best Instagram post? Or better yet, the secret to the best OOTD pic?
HE: Good lighting, a clever caption and a rad outfit that is true to your own style. I think just being yourself, original and not over thinking it will show through. Remember to have fun with it, it’s just clothes!
What’s the sexiest piece of clothing you own?
HE: Vintage Levis cut-offs. They go with everything and I’m comfortable in them and to me that is sexy, even if I have a mom butt in them.
Is there a specific brand you’re in love with right now?
HE: Flynn Skye’s Spring line. Give me it ALL.
If you had to wear one outfit for the entire year of 2016, what would it be?
HE: A high-waisted and flowy maxi skirt, bikini top/crop top, big hat and sunnies. You can wear it from the beach to the bar and don’t have to suck in after eating a cheeseburger. I like to plan my outfits according to my meals.
What Disney princess do you most identify with?
HE: Sleeping Beauty! Nobody loves sleep more than me, I’m convinced. The ‘Beauty’ part is still up for debate though as I wear a retainer every night.
Do blondes really have more fun?
HE: I have a ginger sister and a brunette sister and I think we are all a f*cking blast. It doesn’t matter if you have blue hair, no hair, etc., it all just depends on the mood you’re in. God, I am so PC right now…
What is something that always makes you angry or “salty”?
HE: People who don’t tip enough and mean girls or cyber bullies.
If you were a flavor of ice cream, would you be?
HE: Ben & Jerry’s Blondie Ambition.
What are your thoughts on “the monokini”?
HE: NO. Just no. There is a HUGE difference between a monokini and a one piece. That being, the one piece is allowed.
