A few weekends ago, I got to witness my first east coast sunrise and it was a beautiful thing to behold. My brother was here for two weeks and toward the end of his trip, we woke up at 5 am, drove nearly an hour to Sandbridge and watched the sun rise. It was absolutely breathtaking and everything I could have imagined. We even saw dolphins!
The sunrise was full of cotton candy colors and I felt like this Nanette Lepore Gypsy Queen swimsuit perfectly matched. The print is absolutely beautiful and features so many beautiful details. Every time I look at it, I notice something new. The way the print is laid out with a horizontal band right below the waist and before the hip, which is ultra flattering. I love the plunge with the lace-up ties. It’s not too exposed, but you’ll still get a nice bronze without terrible tan lines. I’m wearing a size XS and it fits perfectly without any loose sections. The straps are also adjustable for comfort.
It’s been practically stifling in Hampton Roads with the dew points incredibly high and temperatures already in the high 90s. After the sunrise, we stuck around the beach for a bit before it got too hot. My skin is always dry and I have to moisturize almost daily to keep my skin from looking overly dry. I love the tropical scent of this body cream from The Body Shop. I hate feeling greasy, but this cream absorbs quickly and lasts a couple hours. I just can’t get over the scent. It makes me feel like I’m on vacation, even though I live by a beach haha 🙂
