Another swimsuit post (the first one here)… I’m not going to lie, it’s so nerve-racking to share these. I’m not a model, definitely not a swimsuit model, and with my day job + blog schedule, I never get to exercise as much as I’d like. But I love to see real girls with their real curves showing their swimsuit style. So here we are – baring all!
I don’t feel comfortable in teeny tiny Brazilian bikinis, nor do I feel comfortable loungin’ all day in a swimsuit in front of strangers. This is where a big, floppy hat and adorable coverup come into play. I always like to accessorize my suit with a flowy, open coverup so I can still get some sun while showing just enough skin. If I’ve got the right accessories, I go from self-conscious to confident in a beautiful coverup that flows with the breeze. This floral one is catches the beach winds so well and I loved wearing it during our little Laguna staycation.
