So, you’ve already seen what I wore on my way to the beach – this is the bikini I wore underneath. ;) I really love the dot combo and the different possibilities to wear them – there are also detachable straps for the bra and you can wear the bottom high-waisted or not, showing more of the bigger dots or not.
Fun fact: I’ve always been a fan of strapless bikinis, since I was a small kid at the beach in Brazil – I always wanted to wear everything strapless. :) And it hasn’t changed.

I know there should always be a little message in every #BeachBodyNotSorry post, but to be honest, I don’t really know what to say since I already said it all → last year. But today, I really want to point out again how important it is to not let other people’s possible (!) thoughts and reactions stop you from going to the beach or pool in summer. I mean – it’s been super hot these days (and pretty rainy, too) and I just can’t think of a summer hidden behind lots of clothes just to hide my body, and neither should you. Even if there’s something you don’t really like about yourself and your own body, there’s absolutely no need to wrap yourself in loads of long-sleeved shirts and pants, because, seriously, you’re going to melt and this is an even worse feeling than other people’s stupid looks. They’ll stare anyway (because we all do it, it’s natural!), so why not ignore it and wear whatever you feel like. And the beach is so much more fun when you’re wearing swimwear! Just don’t forget your sunscreen! ;)

I’ve collaborated with persona and some fellow international bloggers for a special little summer project and my first #BeachBodyNotSorry post of this year. :)

By the way: you can already see the same swimsuit (but totally different evening looks) at → Susie, → Iris and → Theodora. Don’t hesitate to check the hashtag #mypersonasummerday on Instagram to see who else is sharing her beach look and how you can spend your summer day with persona. ;)

As a huge fan of African prints, this swimsuit was my first choice and since we all fell in love with the same suit, I had to buy it myself cause there was none left (the other girls were faster, haha – it-piece alert!), but I had this idea in mind and didn’t want to change anything. But that’s fine because now I’ve got another swimsuit for you to win today! It’s not the same one but a great basic swimsuit with lovely details, which will hopefully make a girl very happy and ready for this summer! ♥

At least by buying something from my own money (I know, people always think that bloggers get everything for free, so that’s why I’m mentioning this today!), I’m totally allowed to say that this was a good investment (but believe me – I never lie when it comes to gifted products!). It is a very cool swimsuit, of high quality and perfect for women with fuller figures (and those who have more bust than me – so they can fill out the cups, which you can also remove if you don’t like them). ;) This is definitely a swimsuit for every day and it also looks great if you want to incorporate it into your evening look – and that’s just how we’ll change the topic from the daytime beach look to evening chic. My idea was to bring the print back in with the pochette and add a neutral color (I love this very special purple-ish brown!) with the dress.

The good thing about this dress is that it’s very light – that’s why it is perfect for summer, warm evenings, BBQs outside or rooftop pool parties. You can also wear it without a belt, I just went for it because I love to accentuate my waist, but it definitely looks great without it too and the loose fit is even more comfortable. ;)

One of you can now win this swimsuit worth €135 in size L (EU size 46/48). Especially if you’ve got a larger cup size (I’d say it probably fits best with a D or E cup), you’ll love this swimsuit. ♥ All you have to do is leave a comment and tell me where you’d like to wear it – by Friday, June 24. The winner will be announced here and in the comment section and should write me an e-mail to receive the swimsuit. Please don’t forget to read the terms and conditions1 at the end of this blog post!

I wore this for a very special date with one of my dear readers – she wrote me such a lovely e-mail telling me that she first saw me and my blog in a magazine years ago and that she’d love to meet me by coincidence one day, since we both live in Hamburg. I suggested that we should just go out for ice cream together instead of waiting for a miracle (let’s be honest: the world’s a small place but why wait?) and that’s what we did. So here’s a very special virtual hug for you, Rebecca! :)

It’s so great to meet new people because of something that you love. It’s amazing to get to know them (since you all already know me!), talk about common interests and find new friends. Seriously, this blog brings me so much joy – it was the best choice to start it more than 7 years ago. And here I am, still sharing my outfits with you, talking about make-up (well, from time to time, I know I don’t do it a lot anymore) and fighting for body positivity every day. What started as “I’m bored, let’s do a blog about my looks” turned into something so important and special for me, and sharing it all with you is what makes me very happy.
Wow, what a deep outfit post. Well, sometimes I just write what I feel. :) Have a lovely week, everyone! ♥
