A couple Sundays ago, my local blogger network had it’s member appreciation party at the pool at The Cheshire. I spent the entire day walking tall in a swimsuit, y’all. Not a swimsuit cover-up, but a swimsuit! I felt so comfortable that day. Was it the support of my super fly blogger squad? Perhaps it was my flawless makeup done by Brea Polittle or my free fro created by stylists from Dominic Michael Salon? Maybe it was my retro-inspired swimwear? I tried to figure out what was going on and eventually realized that I didn’t need a reason to just put on a swimsuit and be confident. Rocking a swimsuit by a pool is as natural as humming a tune after all!

Lori Coulter is a St. Louis-based, luxurious collection of ready-to-wear and made-to-order swimsuits. I became an instant fan of the brand the moment I noticed that it creates swimwear that celebrates the diversity of the female form. I have a pear shape, for example, and love flaunting my arms and upper body. The Ann Plunge Shirred Maillot was perfect for me, then, with its plunging neckline and shirred wrap torso.
I’m wearing The Ann swimsuit in the color “nectarine,” a perfectly bright hue for this lover of color. It is available, however, in several other shades. I wore OPI “Live.Love.Carnaval” on my nails because it perfectly complemented the color of my suit. I’m also wearing my Kendra Scott “Caroline” earrings for a little sparkle.

Special thanks to Lori Coulter and the Alive Network for creating such an awesome experience. And, a super special thank you to Elizabeth Wiseman Photography for beautifully capturing the moments.
Psyche, you look GORGEOUS. That color is lovely on you and you just look radiant. And while I am not as slim as you, I agree that exuding confidence and a smile both go a long way toward banishing that inner critic we all have, no matter our size. You look like you are having a great time, to boot! Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, Tara. I really appreciate the kind words. Thank you so much for chiming in!
