#13 A Day at the Beach

Something I used to dread: getting in a bathing suit. I'd always find ways to keep my body covered or jump as quickly as possible in the water so no one could see me. I was so self-conscious about my tummy and my thick thighs. Thanks to fatshion blogs (and a very devoted boyfriend), I've come to see my body in a new and different way and I'm no longer ashamed to be in a bathing suit. In fact, I love my new cute bathing suit and try to wear it as much and as creatively as possible-- you might remember this outfit from July 4!

We went to the beach yesterday at Jacob Riis Park. It was such an incredibly beautiful day and I really loved swimming in the waves. Here are some bathing suit pics.

BATHING SUIT Striped Vintage Style One Piece, J Crew | GLASSES Aviators, Ray Ban

My make-up free cheesy face in the first pic looks pretty happy! It was a great day. I love the striped pattern and underwire cups of this suit, giving it a vintage feel. It runs a little bit big and I would have loved more support in the bust-- I'll have to remember that when I buy my next suit from J Crew! I also would have loved some vintage Ray Ban frames like these to complete the look, but those are on my wish list for upcoming purchases!
