Almost six years of fashion blogging and I’ve never posted, let alone posed, in swimwear until today. I’d most likely chalk the reason up to being self conscious especially when I scroll through my feed seeing the #InstagramModels of the world. I decided though while in Mexico I would just do me and me only. A mixture of on and off BBG, running and actually watching what I ate was my “prep” for my Mexico bikini bod, which might have all been undone by the amount of tacos and guac I ate there.
Let’s talk about the swimwear. I recently stumbled on the Cali-based swim brand L*Space. I immediately fell in love with their swimsuit styles and all the great high-waisted bottoms and chic one pieces they had to offer. Worried that ordering online I would end up buying the wrong size so I found out they were also carried by the retailer Everything But Water, which has a few locations around Seattle. So I took a trip there and tried on a bunch of styles and fits and ultimately bought this top and bottom set. These bottoms are pretty cheeky so if you’re self conscious about your booty I’d suggest this top and bottom set. I also tried those on and really loved how they fit as well. The bottoms are a bit more full coverage, which is also nice. Because my sculpted abs have not fully come in I opted for my Madewell tie front button down shirt to add over top. It also came in handy to keep my burning shoulders out of the sun.
