Summer is just around the corner, which means it’s time to look for swimsuits (maillot de bain). I honestly never wore bikinis in public when I was growing up, because I did not like my body. Right now there are a lot of people who post about body positivity & it makes me happy to see that! I wish people were that accepting when I was an adolescent, but better late than never, right? I always thought that in order to wear a swimsuit, I had to look like a Victoria’s Secret model, because that is what was always advertised. I am freakishly tall & I was not born with a delicate frame. Not seeing models that looked like me made it difficult for me to have someone to relate to. So when American Eagle/Aerie (plus other companies) stopped editing their models’ pictures, I was shocked to see that their bodies were similar to mine. They had imperfections! I know some of you are probably thinking (duh…), but it is one of those things that you do not believe until you see it. Even though I had finally started learning to love myself the way I was, Aerie’s campaign amplified it for me. So, when it comes to shopping for swimwear, I prefer to shop there. I was planning on posting about this earlier this week, but I am glad I did so today, because Aerie is having a sale on swimwear & everything is under $20!!! =)
I prefer to mix & match my swimsuits, which is another reason I love Aerie’s site. They have a mix & matcher (yes, I just made this up) to allow you to try out different combinations.
I really love these sandals! I have had this pair for a few years and they’re still holding up (I wear them a lot). I also have another pair in black. They’re good, simple sandals for the spring and summer.
I am not a big jewelry person, but I do love some things. This bracelet is one of them! It is from a little store called “Boho-Betty.” They are currently having a sale for 40% their entire site (code: SUPER40), but if you miss this sale, you can always get a discount by using the code I have below =)
Thank you for reading,
Bisous bisous ❤
