Endless Summer


Summertime in Texas can feel like it lasts forever. The only way to stay cool is to be in the water…if the water isn’t 90 degrees LOL. That means, a lot of the time we Texans are in swimsuits (from April-October….That’s half the year!). So, you’ve got to find one you feel confident in. Before I started writing this post, I came across this quote from one of my favorite people, #JenniferLawrence. I love her message and think we should all be proud of who we are. #yougogirl

My #NanetteLepore one piece is the best bathing suit investment I’ve ever made. Before this suit, I hadn’t worn a one piece since I was a kid. When I noticed prettier, less sports-like one pieces popping up, I knew it would be something I would spend a little extra $$ on. I’m so glad I did. To me it was worth it to pay more, to feel better, in the place I (and most people) have the least confidence. 


I  am drawn to anything that has stripes on it, so this bathing suit spoke to me the second I saw it. When I tried it on in the dressing room, I loved how the multicolored middle defined my waist. I also love that you can take the strap off if you want to avoid the tan lines. Too bad I have a slight shorts tan from walking and playing tennis….#thatslife!


Here’s a little closer look at the details of the suit. The “belt” wraps  all the way around the back with a vertically striped pattern to continue defining the waist. You’ll also notice that I have my hat in almost every picture. I am pretty fair skinned and obviously freckled! I try to protect my skin from too much sun and these hats are the best way to keep the sun off my face and shoulders.


Along with a hat, you can’t forget #sunnies! These, from #Target, have been my favorite all summer. I wore them in this post too! I thought the blue would be limiting, but I’m loving the pop of color they add. They also go perfectly with the water and my cool, blue #TrinaTurk beach towel.


Being less than dressed in public can be intimidating, but you shouldn’t have to feel uncomfortable at the pool. Finding a flattering suit can help you gain the confidence you need to have fun in the sun.

So find the suit that suits you.

Here are some suits for you to try so you can relax, enjoy, and feel confident by the pool.
