My golden swimsuit10:00 AM
Being conventional is not my thing at all. I like to be different, to stand out from the mass. And that means doing weird (but really fun) things sometimes. Back to July's last days I saw this super shiny, divine, golden metallic swimsuit at my regular, closest shopping centre near our summer house. It was on the sale rack, and there were plenty of different sizes because, let's be honest... Who is crazy enough to walk around the beach promenade on a golden metallic swimsuit? Well, I am.
I think I had never posted before around here a picture wearing a swimsuit or similar clothing, with almost bare legs and showing so much skin, but today I'm confident enough with my body to show you, and now I know there's nothing wrong on spreading my self-confidence around. I've been reading too much body-shaming articles lately unfortunately, posts and interviews to really famous designers on how you should be ashamed on having a body-shape or another, on being taller or shorter. And it shouldn't be that way! Everybody should be aware of their proportions and shape, know what are the most flattering pieces for them and spread the best about themselves, both physically and mentally, no matter their size, height or weight.
Getting back to today's outfit, well, it's a shiny swimsuit. I had this fashion blogger moral/non-written obligation to show you such extravagance! You know, we have this TV commercial in Spain every Christmas about a sparkling white wine where there're a group of young ladies dressed on golden swimsuits and costumes dancing around as they were bubbles of such drink. It's really fun, because this new swimsuit is really similar to them's.
About the accessories in the outfit, as I wasn't actually around the beach (we shot this at our place's terrace as it was getting darker and darker really quick!), I wore this matching golden statement earrings I bought in Mérida, with this vintage hat I found around the house (I can't relate how many old clothes and stuff I have on those wardrobes) and this DIY yellow beach wrap which was as easy to make as taking a really large piece of sheer, silky fabric, and rolling and sewing around the edges to finish them.
