Stuck At Home
So yeah, we’re stuck at home, too. The governor of Illinois issued a shelter in place order as of Saturday night, but we’ve been here chillin’ since Monday. It is kind of relaxing to slow down and know that even if I wanted to be out running errands, I couldn’t. I’m taking this time to read, cook, organize corners of our condo that need major TLC (hello closet and junk drawers), play with Sidney, pet our kitties and do a at home swimwear try on session.
At Home Swimwear Try On
Sooo I took these swimsuits to Palm Springs thinking I’d have a chance to wear and shoot them, but we were too busy being tourists to go to the pool more than once. In the past couple of weeks the Coronavirus started to take its toll on life. Since we are stuck at home and have no travel plans to go anywhere warm, I did a little at home swimwear try-on.
I don’t typically love mirror selfies, but this is the best I could do under the circumstances, mmkay!? I would much rather shoot swimwear at a pool or beach with palm trees around me, but we can still make being homebound fun.
Also peep my baby peanut in the background concentrating on her toy. She started to get frustrated after awhile so she joined in on the shoot.
|I love a flattering 1 piece – especially since having a baby! The tie waist makes the suit interesting, and vertical stripes are certainly slimming.
This one comes in 3 variations and is only $12! I’m wearing a large. Use code 3BIK086 for an extra 15% off.
|I recall writing a post about how much I love tie dye at the moment. When I saw this tie dye bikini I had to have it! The high waist bottom is perfect for holding in some of the loose skin I still have post-pregnancy.
It’s $11 and comes in two color options! I’m wearing a large. Use code 3BIK086 for an extra 15% off.
|This swimsuit is one of my favorites of all time! The ruffle bandeau top keeps weird tan lines away, and I love a high waist bottom. I have a large!
|I wasn’t going to post this photo because I don’t love the way it fits my body these days, but after giving it a second thought I decided to post it anyway, loose skin and all! This pic makes me think that I should have tried harder to work out and eat healthier the past seven months, and makes me feel bad that other moms bounced back faster than me. But then I woke up from that stupid daydream and realized that I’ve accomplished so much, so why focus on imperfections! Being a mom is HARD work! I wake up and show up for her every single day, rain or shine, whenever she needs me. When in my pre-mommy days I would have worked out at 6am or made myself a salad, now I’m busy getting up early with her and thinking of ways to make her love avocado. I’m grateful for my body for what (more like who!) it has given me, even the extra pounds and loose skin.
It looked fabulous with a bump though! Just sayin.
It comes in 9 different colors and is only $12.
|This one has such a fun leafy print, and the side cutouts make the suit cute and interesting. My exact suit is sold out, but I linked a really similar one!
|My jammy-clad mini insisted on being in this photo! Remember when I wore this lemon one piece this past summer? It’s still a favorite – I love the print!
Even though we are all home-bound, I hope this swimwear post lets you daydream about better days – when we can all start planning our next trip to somewhere tropical. Or perhaps by the time we get out it will be time for the local pool, haha! Either way – bathing suit shopping is fun!
