All the blues and maybe I should add to the title all the awkwardness because this post is way out of my comfort zone.
I think it’s the first time I post a picture of myself in a swimsuit in the blog, but I thought this was maybe the time. We all have those silly insecurities about our body which are only intensified when you see yourself with less clothes, I now as a grown-up know that I have to feel lucky with my body, and although far (far far) away from the standard fashion models, it’s a perfectly healthy one. I may have chubby legs, which need a little bit of toning (I blame my poor athletics skills… and total lack of interest, ha!) and not the flatest tummy, but I feel good in my skin because I’m healthy, that’s what is all about, that’s the most important thing there can be.
Moreover, I think we are lucky to experience new ways of seeing our bodies, where all those stereotypes are changing. We can check out more stores telling that they are no longer selling “large clothing size” as a separate line, but on the contrary embracing every shape as beautiful. Have you seen for instance the Modcloth online store? I love how you can see the same pieces in more shapes, by checking out the model that most looks like you, thus easily knowing how a dress will fit. I think that at some point having more women in high positions making important decisions in companies is making this become true (at least partially), ok… maybe I’m biased because I am in all that girls power stuff after the Ghostbusters screening, ha!
So, well after all the babbling… this is only a post about a few casual phone pics that we took while my nephew Samuel was visiting us and went to the beach. You can enjoy with us the blue goodness of the day, both at the sea and the sky. We stumbled upon so many fishes that day! We were lucky that the water was very clear and they were not shy at all. Do you usully practice snorkel at the beach? Have you seen any of the new masks? (they look quite crazy, don’t they?)
Which is your favorite swimsuit to take to the beach? Are you more a beach or swimming pool kind of girl? See you soon my gorgeous pals!
