Ahh, I finally reached the beach this summer! It's an hour drive back to a place that used to take me 5 minutes to bike there. How I miss this place and wish it were still in my backyard! Some gal pals and I waded in the water, played badminton, read, napped, snacked, chatted, took photos... had a perfect summer day indeed. About the bathing suit, I felt really comfortable in this one from Forever21, and at about $35 it was the right price for such a rarely used seasonal item. I'm happy with the coverage, print, bra support - everything! Besides the fact that I was so pleased with the suit, I really wanted to contribute to the body positive movement that many other bloggers have participated in. So if you've posted swimsuit photos and your body is a little different than American society's definition of perfect - you inspired me!
