Swimming pools, lakes, beaches, oceans, water parks, they are a huge part of summer but some of us have trouble being confident enough to enjoy them. I personally hate shopping for and wearing bathing suits because even though I try to be body positive and happy with my size, it is one of the things that makes me insecure. For today’s OOTW I am challenging myself in this one piece by Killstar. I have noticed that if I photograph and write about an outfit that makes me self-conscious, I am more confident in it. Even while writing this I am looking forward to laying on the beach this weekend.
Normally when I buy swimsuits, I buy the ones that cover the most and have textures and patterns that hide my tummy, but with this one I was drawn to the cut and straps despite how revealing it is. I’m so happy that I went out of my comfort zone for this. It will take a while for me to move on to a bikini but this is a great step for me.

I hope that this pushes you to buy that pretty swimsuit that you are unsure of or to go to the beach even if you are feeling unsure. Doing things that make you uncomfortable is how you learn to be confident in everything.
Thank you so much for reading.
See you Saturday
