One Piece Wonder.

Here’s the thing–I’ve always had trouble with the idea of a bikini. Even at my body’s best, I didn’t like the feeling of being so exposed in public. I have a few bikinis that I like to wear, but I tend to feel more confident in a one piece.  While my choice in swimwear might sound more modest than most, I’ve come across some super sexy swimsuits that I can totally get on board with.

I honestly can’t decide which one I love most.

What about you–are you a bikini or a one piece kinda girl?

I bought this graphic tee a long..long…long time ago. I’ve had it for years and years!  There are a  few tops in my closet that I keep a seriously close eye on because life would be nothing without them.  This is one of them and I bought it on sale for less than $10. I got my money’s worth, for sure.

Reasons I LOVE it so much:

– Comfy and unbelieveably soft

– Makes my lady lumps look Amazing!

-Versatility: it can be edgy, or girly, or chic…the list goes on!

-The freakin’ thing only cost me $8.99…

Merci Beau Coup, for the years of making me feel good and look good too!
