Whether you want to believe it or not, swimsuit season is around the corner. I know. It snuck up on me too. It was 80 degrees in Dallas last week, which means there’s a good chance I’ll need to break out my bikinis earlier than usual this year. For as long as I can remember, the mere thought of being in a swimsuit in public has given me anxiety. Attending pool parties and feeling insecure that my thighs and butt were bigger than everyone else’s, going to the beach and having people point out my pigmentation disorder on my chest and stomach, always thinking “if I would have just lost 10 pounds I wouldn’t feel this bad about myself”… these insecurities have caused me to miss out on more than one occasion in my life and worse, consumed my mind and energy. Unfortunately, in our society, it is so common for us women to compare ourselves to others and make ourselves feel inferior or inadequate. This is unhealthy on so many levels and I personally am taking a vow to end it! The older I get, the more I realize obsessing over body insecurities is just not worth it and the more I have become comfortable in my own skin.
I’m thrilled to share that I will continue partnering with Target throughout 2016 on different style stories all about creativity and confidence when it comes to personal style and it’s starting with their #NOFOMO campaign (no fear of missing out). It’s time to stop worrying about how you look and start getting pumped for what you’ll do this summer! Target has a huge selection of swimsuits to choose from and the best part is they offer suits for every body. No matter your age, body type, budget, or taste, there’s a 99.9% chance you’re going to find a suit you love. They make the shopping process even easier by allowing free shipping and returns so you can try on as many suits as you like and return the ones that don’t work! They have everything from sporty to boho and they are constantly getting in new suits.
As you can tell, I fell in love with their Tori Praver Seafoam line! The colors, the prints, the cuts. All of it. I love the smocking detail on the bikinis that is not only stylish but also adds an extra layer of coverage! The bralette and halter-tops give extra support, which will definitely be appreciated while playing sand volleyball and soccer on the beach this summer (sans cover-up!). I never thought I could pull off one-pieces but this tropical print one was calling my name! The looped keyhole ties are as cute as can be and I just adore the colorful print! You will definitely see me sporting this suit with a pair of cut off shorts and hat heading to the lake once it’s warm enough (hopefully we can get Leo in the water this year!).
Whether it’s laying out by the pool, running around at the beach or diving in to swim around on that adorable pink flamingo floatie (it’s kind of the cutest thing ever), I will have #NOFOMO this summer and I hope you will join me in taking this pledge! Life is too short to not take every opportunity to enjoy it! I hope you will embrace your body, feel empowered in your skin, and not let yourself miss out this summer!
Leave me a comment and let me know if you plan to take this pledge! I know you will find a suit you love! I can’t wait to share more TargetStyle ideas and tips with you!
