Every Body is a Bikini Body

So it's the time of year when everyone you know is trying to lose weight because summer is approaching and they want to look good in a swimsuit. Newsflash: you don't have to lose weight to look good in a swimsuit. I hate the message that only certain bodies are allowed to wear bikinis or be on a beach. Don't let other people dictate what you wear. If the sight of my body makes people cringe, that's their problem, not mine.

I've been on the search for the perfect vintage-inspired bikini for a while, and I finally found one that I love from figleaves.com. I'm in Vegas for work, so yesterday I broke out my two-piece and went for a dip with my co-workers!

Forever21+ Giveaway

This Spring I'm all about crop tops and ombre hair, and I decided to combine the two since it's finally warming up in NYC. Inspired by Alexa Chung, Lauren Conrad, Drew Barrymore, and the rest of the celebs who have recently sported the brown-to-blonde locks, I decided to try it out too! I kept it super simple with the outfit; I'm wearing a blush cropped tee from H&M and my velvet mini skirt from F21. Totally channeling my life idol:
