A couple of weekends ago, I popped down to Devon and actually got to have a beach day! I don't remember the last time I spent the day at the beach, and went for a swim. It was the perfect day to test out my new swimming cozzie, hat, and other bits and bobs.
My mum and I took my gorgeous 3-and-a-half year old niece to our favourite beach, and had the loveliest day. I'm going to do a more personal post about that tomorrow, but today's is going to focus on this rather glamorous holiday ensemble sent to me by Matalan.
I have always thought that Matalan doesn't get the credit it deserves - I've found so many nice things in there over the years, and yet I often forget about it when I'm searching for a new treat for myself! Everything that I'm wearing in this post is from their holiday shop!
I have to admit, this blog post was quite difficult for me. I'm not in the best shape of my life, and seem to find it harder and harder to stay slim as I get older (especially with my love of chocolate and other naughty things..) and being short in stature means it really shows. I wasn't sure how I'd feel about posing in a swimming costume and then putting the photos up here for all to see..
However, I do like challenging my insecurities, so I just got on with it and tried not to over-think things. I think it helped that the beach was quiet, and I was with two people who love me no matter how big my bum gets! And, actually, I'm rather pleased with how the photos came out!
