Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.
Can I tell you something? Making the decision to wear a bikini this year was both liberating and scary at the same time. Yet, after fighting through all my emotions of putting myself out in the media life to be seen, I pushed the post button and haven’t looked back since.
Now, was this easy, NO! As you can see below, I used my daughter as a security blanket at first. When I realized what I was doing, I immediately thought, if you’re going to do this, then you’re not ready and what was your point. My point, as always, is that this is my body and no one else gets to tell me how my body should look!!
So after that picture, I stepped from behind her and we started the real photo shoot!!
I deliberately purchased the bikini for the 4th of July celebration, can you see the little USA stars and stripes? Recently purchased at Jcpenney, the fit is spot on, again its been 25 years since I’ve worn a bikini, very refreshing.
Before going to get wet, we went to the town parade and I wore my swimsuit coverup. I’d purchased this great find from Marshalls. The coverup was very stylish with the embroider and tassels on the wing arms, light and airy; it was a little windy so you can see more of the style freely. So many compliments.
Remember my last post here with collaboration with @amarique_boutique, well there were more hot summer fun pictures!
Now on to the Friday Pool Party LINKUP!! How are your summer days going, show me…
Until next time nzuri, thank you for stopping by my corner of the internet.
