    Hooks Creek Lake

    I’m generally not a lake person – mostly because I haven’t been to many. I’ve lived less than an hour from the beach my whole life so my summers have always been about going to the beach or hanging out at someone’s pool. A few weeks ago my friend and I were planning to spend the afternoon at a reservoir about 30 minutes away. I haven’t been to that reservoir in years. I used to go there to go fishing with my dad and brother when I was young. Anyway, before we headed out we saw a notification that the reservoir was at capacity and not accepting any more visitors…

    #fbf Poolside in Hong Kong

    Since it’s the first Friday of the school year and I’ve survived the first week I thought I’d do a flash back Friday post. Of course, I picked a #fbf from my vacation last month since apparently I’m already in need of a vacation! Swimsuit: Target I wrote about my little bit of pool time in Hong Kong at my hotel, Conrad Hong Kong, in my blog post (here). It’s been so disgustingly hot out the past few days that I wish I had a pool to jump in to! I can’t wait for fall weather to finally come around, but for now I’ll just look back at these photos…

    Gingham Ruffle One-Piece

    Last year I wrote about my new love for one-piece bathing suits. Seriously, they’ve become super cute the past few years and I feel so much more comfortable in them than two-pieces. Even with plunging necklines and side cutouts, I just feel more comfortable. I picked up a few new ones for this summer and I love them all! I recently hung out at my friend’s house and she has a pool in her backyard so I took a few photos of my new gingham ruffle one-piece. Bathing Suit: Aerie | Sunglasses: Express I think the colors in this suit are so fun and I love the style. It’s got a high…

    Beach Style: One-Pieces

    “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” – Marilyn Monroe My post today is a look at my beach/pool style this year but I also want to talk about body image. This year I was all about the one-piece. It’s been a growing trend the past few summers, but this summer it really reached new levels of popularity. I used to hate one-pieces back in the day because they were seriously un-stylish. The only time I ever wore one-pieces was back when I was really little and didn’t care what I was wearing and the only times I wore them when I get…

    Beach Days

    Happy Labor Day! This long weekend marks the unofficial end of summer. There are quite a few (okay, 3) “ends of summer” for me. I went back to work last week so that was pretty much the end of summer for me. The students start tomorrow with the official start of school so that’s another way to view the “end of summer”. And, of course, the season doesn’t officially end calendar wise until later on in the month. But I digress, Labor Day Weekend usually marks the end of summer so I thought I would round up my beach looks and some beach snaps (and 1 pool shot) to celebrate/mourn…
