As usual, I want to do a short recap after my #BeachBodyNotSorry project and share a few more thoughts about the looks with you. I know that this year’s project wasn’t that “beachy” at all because of the photos I had to take in our garden. I only managed to do one shoot in Hamburg at the Elbe and even this one isn’t at the beach. I’m a little sad about this because, of course, beachwear looks best at the beach. But sometimes, we have to change our plans. And wearing your bikini and swimsuit at home is no shame at all. :) At least I got the chance to spend some time in the sun during a super hot and beautiful summer here in the south of Germany.
As every year, it’s extremely important to me to show you that beach wear is for everyone. You don’t need to hide and you don’t need to wrap yourself in tons of fabric so nobody will notice that you’re not skinny. I’m pretty sure that you all want to have fun in the summer and that nobody wants to sweat in long-sleeved clothes instead of jumping into the water. I also want you to see a body that’s not photoshopped or somehow “perfect”. I have some major cellulite around my thighs, I have stretch marks around my belly and hips (which you can’t see this time because of the high-waisted pants or swimsuits), I have a hanging belly, I’m super white,… The world is still missing enough unretouched photos and “natural” bodies.
P.S.: You can find two exclusive pictures (one of a not shown look on the blog) on Instagram, so don’t forget to check my account – @luziehtan! ;)
Wearing this brand a few times this year was great. Phylyda is an amazing brand with a lovely message: a very inclusive sizing. The pieces are great for some major “mix & match” fun (as I showed you with another look) but also look great in “unicolor” styles and the quality is absolutely impeccable. This is definitely my favorite mix and I especially love the pants. :)
That’s what I meant by “mix & match” fun – Phylyda does not only work with their own line but also with other brands. I actually own the matching top for these pants and wanted to do a look with it for the project but didn’t manage to do it. Guess that’s going to be one for next year. ;) Anyways – I’m still looking for the actual pants matching the palm tree top. Had no chance to buy it yet and I hope I can find it somehow…
This wasn’t actually part of the #BeachBodyNotSorry project but of course it fits to the message, especially because of the photos with the other women. I’m so happy and proud that I’ve been a part of this shoot because I really love the result! Also, this bikini (people keep mistaking it for a swimsuit) is a masterpiece! It’s almost art, right?
Swimsuits are still something I adore. I styled an easy look for sheego’s online magazine with that navy polka dot swimsuit and a few motivating words. This is a super comfy piece and also great for people with a bigger bust and not only a swimsuit for summer season but all year if you like to visit indoor pools. ;)
The final look of this year’s project had to be a pool party style because it’s already pretty cold outside and I also wanted to show you another option of wearing your beachwear. A long kimono or light cardigan is always a pretty idea to cover up, whether you’re still not confident enough to show everything or when it has to be a little more fabric due to the occasion. ;)
