Happy Memorial Day! Hopefully you are indulging in some R&R time, cookouts, swimming, shopping and a day off work (hopefully). We have had our fill of swimming at the lake and are spending today (Monday as you are reading this) at my cousins pool party. There is plenty of swimming to be had which is why you may notice the title of this post, but you have to read on to gather more of what I mean and some sales of course.
I have never felt confident about my body in a bathing suit, especially after having children. but rather I learned that I had the “wrong” swimsuit. I have been wearing the same swimsuits for years now and been hiding them behind a sun dress while in the water. I am one of those ladies that hate swimsuit shopping; however recently I made my mind up that I NEEDED a different swimsuit or tankini top.
I took a recent trip to Target and tried on a few tankini tops (that happened to be on sale) and then decided on this black one (similar) with white trim as it was simple and just what this body was calling for. Better yet it was on clearance for $13. So in the cart it went and became first worn this past Saturday paired with an old trusty pair of bottoms I scored on clearance at Marshalls a few years back.
Because I am slowly coming out of “swimsuit” hiding I didn’t want to fully flaunt my body in a swimsuit (especially online) but instead I wanted to show you how I wore and styled my swimsuit while outside of the water. As you can see an added kimono and straw hat with black flip flops did the trick and even added a sense of confidence.
This was the perfect swimsuit to wear in the lake with my husband and children, on a boat ride and while enjoying the simple moments of the entering of Summer.
