I am a die-hard bikini fan. I have SO many pieces that mix and match to create even more looks. They’re sexy, fun, cute, edgy… and none of them hold a candle to how sexy this one piece is from Simply Be. It proves that sometimes, more coverage in the right areas can be just as sexy as a bikini. I picked this up on a whim, thinking that this was going to be a pretty standard plus size black swimsuit that I could wear on days I felt bloated and not bikini-ready… but heck no!
I want to talk about this incredible dress I picked up from indie designer, Zelie for She. I didn’t expect it to be as sheer as it is (which isn’t too sheer, but still) so instead of dismissing it, I decided to turn it into a swim cover.
You and Boo are on your summer vacation – maybe you’re in the Caribbean, maybe Hawaii, maybe even Vegas (because let’s face it, that’s where I’ll be – I’m allll about that resort life!). You’ve spent all afternoon by the water with a pitcher of Mojitos. The sun has turned your skin a shade of gorgeous golden brown and you’ve applied enough sunscreen to smell like a Bath and Body Works (yummmm). But it’s almost 5PM and you’re hungry. You towel dry and want to go straight to dinner – so you reach for this gorgeous sheer maxi and pull it over your suit (and maybe chose to belt it to define your waist) and all of a sudden, you are perfect and ready to go anywhere. Low maintenance, easy, gorgeous.
