Embrace Your Body

Like most girls, I have insecurities about my body, but with years I am learning to embrace it and accept it the way it is. It doesn't come without a challenge, but I am trying my best to stay on track.
My resolution for this year was to finally have the courage to wear a two-piece and actually wear a bikini at the beach, which was supposed to be the first time in the past 5 years!!
The never-ending heat in LA these days and the realization of the fact that summer WILL eventually end (not for a couple of months though) made me remember my resolution and finally step out of my comfort zone.
I guess the final pushing point was the fact that I got a hold of this beautiful maxi caftan in turquoise-green color from Jordan Taylor, which is perfect to wear on top of the bikini. So I am proud to say that I finally DID it. "Surprisingly" enough, nothing bad happened and nobody was pointing and laughing at me.
I guess the point of my little story is to encourage you to step out of your comfort zone. Challenge yourself and don't get caught up in insecurities, because bottom line - it's all in your head and no one else cares.
And thanks to Jordan Taylor for their amazing resortwear collection, which make every body look and feel good.

  10. Diana you have a fabulous figure! However I completely understand regarding being insecure! I'm that girl too! You probably heard this before "if I had your body, I would ...." Well that's what I would say to you lol
    Being athletic I'm most insecure to show my thighs! They are muscular in my opinion so I would wear a boy surfer shorts over the bottom!
    You look awesome in this beautiful seafoam colour!
