FINALLY! The UK isn’t the…warmest of places, but thankfully the gods of weather gave us a solid week of sunshine. This, of course, meant ROAD TRIP — and my first chance of the year to fatkini-fy in GabifreshxSwimsuits4All.
You’ll all remember that Gabi Gregg’s swimsuit collection was beyond a hit (the galaxy bikini selling out overnight!). But I essentially stalked the website until it came back for a few hours and pounced. I couldn’t resist splurging on the galaxy cover-up, the neon green bikini and the one-piece suit (photos to come on that one!).
I must say, I love bikinis, and I don’t have any qualms with my rolls hanging out of them or my tummy poking through the front. I am who I am; I look how I look; and I will wear what I love to wear. In this case, space print and neon.
The final destination on my road trip was the amazing Isle of Skye in Scotland. It was one of the most gorgeous places I have ever seen in person: green and mountainous, peaceful and serene, not SO touristy that you get aggravated within minutes, and home to the incredible Fairy Pools — natural, crystal-clear lagoons. They aren’t actually warm enough to swim in, even in summer, but we did anyway. And if you venture just far enough from the crowds, you will find totally secluded places where you can simply exist.
I felt so natural in Skye. I didn’t have to wear make-up, I didn’t have to strive for perfection (whatever that may be). I could just be. Hopefully that comes through in these photos.
