You know last year, on vacation was the last time I rocked out in a bikini. And before that, it had to be easily ten years. Posing in a bikini takes courage you know. AND it is not as easy as one thinks… so last year, I played around in a few suits, gaining the courage to do what I did this go round on my family vacay and ham it up.
Thanks to my gift from Sorella Swim, I rocked out in this Snakeskin Charmer Halter Bikini and skirted bottom. (I am really trying to get over the whole showing the crotch area thing) I feel it is a bit forward for me and I am working my way up to conquering this fear. BUT, first let me rewind.
Last year was my first vacation in almost 7 years, although I do travel often for work. BUT, this vacation is our FIRST grown up vacation as a family. Like, my mother and stepfather, my sister, her husband and Noah and Zoee, and my Godmother as well! We were EIGHT DEEP traveling. WHOA. It has already been a colorful one as we are in Cabo Rojo to take the babies to see their great-grandmother and to introduce them to their cousins and other family!
ME? I am happily along for the ride.
Which leads us to yesterday.
We spent the day cruising, on a boat to a beach, anchored there (with no dock), sipping on Medalla, wine, eating, sunbathing and swimming in the AMAZING ocean. (If you do not know, I am a water baby, having grown up in Hawaii and Okinawa. I LOVE to swim and the water)
SO the first of the many swimsuits I rocked out in was this one…
The Sorella Swim Bikini in Snake Charmer Print.
This halter surprisingly gave me cleavage. Like… hello boo. And the skirt covered all the lady bit I wanted to keep to myself… LOL I was literally in this suit the WHOLE DAY. Like…
After the beach and boat adventure, we headed over to my brother in law’s Tio’s lavish home and we chatted, listened to amazing music, and ate some more great food. DID I MENTION GREAT FOOD?
I do not think I could see myself rocking the halter swim top ALL DAY like that again, because HALTER. And after 10 hours in this top, my neck was a bit sore. But TEN HOURS THOUGH. IMPRESSED.
If you are a fan of the Suit, you can cop this here, at Sorella Swim!
