bathing suit: mara hoffman | shorts: abercrombie

If you follow me on Instagram ( @avizastyle ) or Snapchat ( @avizacard ) you know that this past weekend I was in Southern Virginia at Lake Gaston with 27 friends.
Yes you saw that right, 27 people in one house.
It sounds crazy, I know, but this was actually our 3rd annual lake trip with roughly the same group of people.
Truth be told, I don't really love large group outings (I blame this on failed immature group beach trips in college). So many people confined to one space is a bit overwhelming, but this group is pure perfection.
No drama, just fun in the sun (and plenty of mimosas!).

I scored this suit at the Mara Hoffman online sample sale at the beginning of the summer for a crazy price but have only had the chance to wear it in Vegas (seen here).
Luckily, I wore the monokini almost the whole trip because it was just so comfortable and hid my insecurities so I was free to frolic around.

Even though the summer is winding down, have you tried the one-piece trend yet??
