I know this post seems a little out of season but I promise there is an explanation. Matt and I have a January adventure planned to the gorgeous island of Maui! Neither of us have ever been before so we are beyond excited.
Now there is nothing that freaks me out more than the thought of slipping into a bikini right after holiday season. Thanks to Crohn's the days of carefree bikini wearing are long gone for me. Between fluctuating weight, bloating, and injection site bruising all over my stomach I've decided that I couldn't be more thankful for the return of the one piece. When I first told Matt I was perusing Amazon for some new one piece bathing suits, he looked at me with the strangest expression and asked if my next purchase was a mini van. Definitely effing not. I had to school him on the revolution that one pieces are no longer just for soccer moms or swim team practice anymore friends! They can be sexy, stylish, and 100% romantic vacation approved. Another plus... more skin coverage to protect from UV rays... aka you are protecting your precious skin from skin cancer and aging. Yay!
Shout out to these trendy monokinis for making my life so much easier. Not only can I be super trendy, but I can also adventure through Hawaii without feeling self conscious and uncomfortable. I've rounded up six of my favorite styles, three in my tried and true basic black and then three colorful patterns to mix things up a bit.
Depending on the day you may catch me feeling sassy in a bikini but for now I'm going to stick with these babies (;
