High Waist Bikinis and Weird Tan Lines

Can we just talk about the obvious and hysterical tan lines I have on my legs?

I went to get a spray tan before we headed out on vacation, because who wants to show up to some tropical location looking pale and pasty?

I already have a hard enough time with having to be pretty much naked in front of my tanning lady, so I try to cover up on the bottom as much as I can. Clearly I wasn't thinking when I chose to wear boy-short type underwear. I was just concerned with keeping my lady parts covered!

It wasn't until I was packing later that evening, several hours after my spray tan that I realized the ridiculous tan lines I would have on my legs! There was a moment of CRAP. Then there was just laughter. Typical me, and really at this point what could be done about it?

So embrace the tan lines, I did! Mental note for the future- be careful what underwear you choose, especially if you will be gallivanting around in a bathing suit in the days after your tan! Haha!

I love the high waist bikini trend- I think it gives us gals who don't quite have a bikini body the chance to wear one. When worn correctly, they can look super cute. I didn't think it would look the best on me, simply because I am a little fuller on the bottom, but I got the ok from my husband and from Ella so I figured I would give it a try!

Although the top and bottom are from different places (the bottom is no longer online- check in store, but I linked a very similar one), I love how well they paired together. As much as I love a good one piece bathing suits, I love being able to mix and match bikinis, which I haven't been able to do for a few summers!

Don't be afraid to give them a try, no matter your size or your body shape. It's all in how you wear it!

And can I just say how perfect Blair Ritchey's Travel Tote is for (yep you guessed it) traveling? Not only do I use this day to day to carry my water bottles and lunch to work, but I use it as my carry on bag AND my pool/beach tote. It is so versatile and perfect!
