Although it may still be Winter, warmer weather is right around the corner. Spring break is only weeks away, and, before you know it, Summer will be upon us. So it’s time to tackle a very serious subject – the bikini body. 😉
Now I’ll be the first to admit that I am not exactly the pillar of confidence and self-love. I can be as hard on myself as the next gal. It’s easy when you just had a baby (uh, 18 months ago) or you’re still carrying a few extra holiday pounds (ahem, guilty). There’s always an excuse, right?! But ever since having a daughter, I decided that I was going to be a better example of having a positive body image. I want Layla to love her body, and I know that by my setting a good example, she’ll be well on her way.
So this year, I’m joining Target in a pledge of #NOFOMO (No Fear of Missing Out!). Because there is no way I’m going to let my insecurities distract me from making memories with my friends and family. Years from now am I going to look back and think about five or ten extra pounds I was carrying or the fun we had at the pool?! Am I going to remember a little love handle or teaching my daughter how to swim?! Those memories of Summer fun are what I’m looking forward to making!
And Target is making it easy to embrace the #NOFOMO attitude with their plethora of swimsuit options. Shipping and returns are free, meaning you can order to your heart’s content and try on in the comfort of your own home. (That’s what I did!) And they have styles for every woman. Whether you like the sporty look, classic style, retro-inspired, or even favor the boho vibe, you’re bound to find an option that helps you express your personal style and makes you feel confident.
I chose four completely different styles because my swim suit style, like my everyday style, really depends on my mood. The first, a flirty flounce bralette bikini, felt fun, and of course the leopard print was a major selling point. I went a completely different direction with the second, a fun retro-inspired striped bandeau with high-waisted bottoms. I’ve always wanted to try one but felt like maybe I couldn’t pull it off. Once I tried it on though, it was love! The third, a ruffled halter one piece was probably my favorite find. I love the full coverage, and the print and design reminded me of a classic wrap dress. (Talk about flattering, right?!) And the last was a mesh inset one piece that felt a little out of my comfort zone at first. But pretty much every single one of my family members assured me it was a winner. And when I rocked it, I felt confident. That’s all you can really ask for in a swimsuit, right?!
So the only thing you need to do to get beach body ready, is to get that body in a swimsuit and embrace all the fun you’re going to have this Summer! Team #NOFOMO! Are you with me?!
