It’s been a minute or two since I’ve blogged! I guess my last post was just last week, but it feels like longer than that because usually I’m pretty OCD about posting multiple times per week! I just returned home, first from being in Maine on our family vacation and then being in Michigan to visit one of my best friends and pick her wedding dress! (AHHH). I have never been a maid of honor before, but am so exited to stand by her side and share the experience! (If you follow along on Insta stories, you saw a lot of the process).
This summer, I’ve had the opportunity to travel much more than I’ve been able to throughout the last few summers. While quitting my job in digital marketing was a big (and SCARY) leap for me to make, it has definitely been one that allowed me to take these different opportunities that came my way to travel this summer. I’ve felt really lucky to be able to spend so much time with my family in Bozeman, Wine Country, and in Maine!
I’ve always been someone who likes to bounce around from place to place, someone who loves adventure and travel. I love the excitement of packing up for a trip and don’t think I will ever be one to not want to travel around. That being said, I’m also a pretty big homebody (when I’m home), so I love the feeling of coming home and being back in my own bed.
I wanted to write this post to share with you the details from the second half of our Maine trip, along with these photos from the yacht club dock. My adorable Mom was my photographer during our vacation in Maine, and I have to say she was incredibly patient. She took photos for my blog even though she would have rather been reading or eating an ice cream and basically did it without me having to ask her twice. Very sweet of her!
The location of these photos is a place I’ve been coming since I was a little girl. There’s actually a funny rule that you aren’t able to go down onto the dock unless you’re wearing a life vest, unless you’re over the age of 11 (or something like that). I definitely remember wanting so badly to go down on the dock without that life vest, HA! I couldn’t wait for the day. It’s pretty crazy thinking back to those memories as a little girl and realizing how quickly time passes.
One of my favorite parts about being in Maine is that time tends to pass a little more slowly. Our days in Maine are filled with hours of sailing, reading, yoga, cooking, hiking, and laying around. We also love to go for swims in the lake, out on the dock, etc.
I was really excited to bring this ASOS suit on the trip with me, because it actually reminds me a lot of my grandma who we were celebrating on this trip. It was TOTALLY her style! She was the ultimate image of feminine beauty and I often think of her when I’m wearing anything pink or floral! I know she would have rocked this floral off the shoulder suit and looked like a total beauty doing so. The first half of our trip in Damariscotta was spent honoring her life, as we were visiting her home town to put on a memorial service for her friends.
The suit is super comfortable and also can be worn as a top, as you can see in some of these photos. I ordered a size 4 (for reference if you want to order) and it fits pretty true to size. I love it because it isn’t one of those suits that gives you a constant wedgie, lol. I tend to like more conservative swimsuits and love when a swimsuit makes me feel extra confident! This one does just that. You guys know I’m all about body confidence and loving our bodies, so focusing on the way I feel in a swimsuit is always very important to me. I think the key to finding a swimsuit you can feel your best in, is always tuning into the way you feel when you put it on! You know?
Let me know if you have any questions about swimsuit sizing & I hope you are having an incredible Friday!
Talk to ya early next week, beautiful people!
