Hello Diva! :) Just making fun, this hat kind of brings out the diva in me, but the whole look is somehow cruise-chic, right? ;) Unfortunately, this spot has nothing to do with a glamorous cruise through the Caribbean but some ice-cold water in a park. With bad lighting so you can see my crater-cellulite thighs. But even though I’m mentioning them and some might think that I do so because I feel bad about them, it’s more because I want to say: it’s okay. My skin down there is not perfect. My thighs are huge, and so are my hips and my butt – it’s kind of a family problem and not that easy to just get rid of through exercise. I’ve got some bad lipedema and to be honest: I don’t like it. Yes, there’s something about my body that I don’t like – this doesn’t mean that I’m not “body positive” anymore. Of course I love myself, I even love my legs even though they’re not the most beautiful part about me (plus, again: the lighting is so not flattering!). I’m allowed to find some imperfections and not feel good about them.
But: is this a reason to hide them? I won’t jump into the water wearing long pants. Definitely not. For some, my thighs may be disgusting, others may think that I’m brave because I’m even posting pictures of me showing them, others may not even notice my cellulite – maybe because I’m still confident about my body. It’s okay to have some flaws. I’ve accepted my legs and I’m fine with them.
And that’s why I’ll now stop talking about them and change the topic to this gorgeous bikini: it’s a freestyle thing as the top is from Agent Provocateur and the bottoms from H&M+. I knew I’d never fit into the actual bottoms from Agent Provocateur, so I came up with the idea to do some black and white combo and this is it. Black high-waist pants plus a very special white top (I love it so much!). Add the cruise chic with a huge striped hat and a sheer kimono for even more glam and you’re good to go – for a real cruise or just some splish-splash fun at the park. Feel free to wear whatever you want, whenever you want. :*
