Getting to Cancun was a journey in and of itself. I recently filmed a story time video on my Youtube Channel sharing the drama that surrounded this trip. Be sure to check it out after reading this post! For my birthday my best friend and travel buddy Kyla visited Cancun, Mexico. We had an amazing time! Kyla and I travel together quite often (5 countries and counting)but every trip is different and the memories we share are endless!
Growing up, some of my GREATEST memories happened while wearing a bathing suit! Every Sunday my family would pack up our stuff and either spend the day at the beach or have a cook up by the river; which was a full day affair. I know that my fellow Dominicans can relate. Heading to the sea we would enjoy the sea bath until it was time to head to the river with our bags, baskets, buckets or any other form of carrying our essentials for the days activities! We would either have packed our shampoo and condition or just simply pick the hibiscus flowers to wash our hair, soap to wash clothes and food to keep us all day long unless if we decided to cook a one pot on the river stone. Just by writing this I’m being nostalgic! Even after the childish memorable eras we still would go to the beach without the “adults, adults” for a drink up…which lead to more wonderful memories.
I was going through my pictures and realized I have so many pictures in a bathing suit. Sure I like the way I look in a bathing suit but mostly I love being at the beach or river. That’s my happy place.
I follow a few hashtags like AsForLita #TittyTuesday and TheLocdDoc #TshirtTuesday so this idea really came from them. I’d like to introduce Swimsuit Sunday’s. On Sundays i’ll post a short post here on the blog and on Instagram either reviewing a bathing suit or just posing for the fun of it. I will also feature anyone who post using the hashtag #SwimSuitSunday and tagging me. I’ve created an Instagram highlight on my page that features will be added to.
For most people being in a bathing suit is associated with happiness, unfortunately this is not the case for everyone. I want this hashtag to help people see others who look like them rocking their favorite bathing suit. I encourage everyone of all shapes and sizes to participate.
I told myself I would not buy anymore bathing suits since I already have so many, but let’s face it-that was not a very realistic goal. As I mentioned it my previous bathing suit related blog post ( Read Here ) I like shopping at Forever 21 for plus size bathing suits. They are very inexpensive and still very trendy. That’s a win in my book. Here are my favorite three from this season
This green one is super cute and has a X design in the back. This bathing suit came with pads in the breast but I took them out. Still had enough support.
This one appears like a two piece in the back. I think that’s a cute detail, specially if you would rather cover your stomach but still be sexy. It says “sunkissed” and I normally don’t like clothes with writing on it, but hey sunkissed is appropriate for the summer. The cover up is also from Forever 21
This one is simple, yet so cute and playful.
I hope this post brings you some inspiration for your next vacation or pool day.
Tell me which one is your favorite in the comments. Also if you purchase any of these bathing suits tag me in a picture! I’d love to see how you guys style it.
This past weekend I visited my Alma Mater, Oakwood University to celebrate my best friend Rilene’s graduation. Oakwood is an HBCU, and at every gathering everyone comes to slay! I wanted to wear something stylish but comfortable. I opted for the suit from Premme Premme is a plus size clothing line by Plus size blogger Gabi Fresh. In this post I’m showing you how to take an outfit from day to night.
For the day part of the graduation, I wanted a more dressy look. The jacket of the suit is way too big for me and I still wanted to wear it so I cinched it in with my Gucci belt. A belt is the perfect accessory to take your outfit to the next level. I wore these simple Steve Madden Sandals. I’ve had these shoes for over 3 years. They are so comfortable. Whenever I want to wear heels and I know I’ll be doing a lot of standing/ walking I always reach for these shoes
Because Oakwood is extra, there is another ceremony in the evening. I packed light for this trip so I planned on using the same outfit for the 2nd service. The second service is really long so I wanted to be very comfortable and laid back. Here’s what I came up with.
I took my jacket off and I am wearing the same body suit that I wore in the morning. I switched my heels for some Adidas Superstars. Superstars are one of the most comfortable sneakers I own. My feet thanked me for getting out of the heels. I also changed my lip color from nude to bright pink and added some hoop earrings. The night time look is more playful but just as cute in my opinion.
Which look is your favorite? Let me know in the comments!
I had a work banquet a few weeks ago and of course I had to share my outfit in the group chat for approval. When I showed my cousins my dress my cousin Amanda showed me her online shopping cart and we realized we have the same dress !
This ASOS dress is what the young people would refer to as EVERYTHING! It’s comfortable and flattering. Wedding season is coming up and it’s the perfect wedding dress! I got so many compliments when I wore this dress and so did Amanda.
I know lots of people don’t like when others have the same clothing as them, but I couldn’t care less! This just showed me that we both have a great sense of style…you know what they say, great minds think a like! Dare I ask who wore it better? Kidding, we both slayed!
