It's funny how the older I get the more comfortable I feel in my own skin.
I totally have a "I don't give AF" attitude these days when it comes to most things
and body image is definitely one of them.
Having this space where I share pieces and pictures of my life with
you every week for the last four years has been amazing.
I love being able to look back and see how far I've come and also see how much
my life and my appearance has changed.
I have more of a curvy figure, I somehow grew a butt (it's small but it's there),
and my lovable big cheeks have only gotten a squishy-er.
While the 23 year old me may be shocked by this new body I've found myself in,
the 28 year old me is embracing it.
As I sail into my last year and a half in my 20's, I am choosing to not focusing on how
I can look like a younger/thinner version of myself but rather on being happy, healthy,
and having the most amount of fun as possible.
Like the old saying goes "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" :)
About this suit...
Guys I'm OBSESSED with Mara Hoffman swimsuits and stalk the my inbox for the email in June for their online sample sale to snag a suit at a huge discount.
Last year I got this one seen here and this year I opted for fun mix-and-match bikini.
Mara Hoffman has the best prints that are so different from anything else that is out there.
Each piece of this suit was under $35 which is a steal from the regular retail price.
There are still a bunch of suits left :)
The reason why I have my hand on my head in all these photos is because five minutes
before these photos were taken, my hat blew into the ocean.
Seeing as I destroyed my J.Crew panama hat in Las Vegas (RIP) just from getting it wet,
I thought it was a gone-er.
Luckily I saved it and didn't it didn't get too deformed.
I may look into adding a chin strap to it so it doesn't run away from me again...
