Cabi Yacht Collection: The Fiesta Romper

I'm back with another post featuring Cabi Clothing's new Yacht Collection! You can catch my first post here, where I featured the white skipper pants. With Cinco De Mayo right around the corner, I knew I had to have their adorable Fiesta Romper! I'm very picky about rompers, because I don't like any type of shorts hugging my legs, but this romper is the perfect fit!! I love how loose it is around the leg, but still defines your waist with a cute print and tie string. It's the perfect throw and go outfit, and I know I will be getting a lot of wear out of it during those hot summer days!

Speaking of hot summer days, we are headed on vacation soon! We leave for St. Thomas in just 9 days, and I couldn't be more excited! But I do want to say that last night I pulled out all my swimsuits to try on and go through for our trip, and is it just me... or do you always kind of dread the first try on?! Ha ha! I mean, I've been tucked away all winter, covering every inch of me (in case you couldn't tell by my pale legs in these photos), and when you first put that suit on, it's like oh hellllooooooo (insert wide eyed emoji here).

I think I would feel this way during that first try on even if I was the skinniest girl in the world. It's just like your body is waking up from hibernation and then you plop in it a bikini for all the world to see. As I stood there in my bikini, I had a moment of "ugh, I should have been working out more," and "I'm not ready for swimsuit season," and then Chris walked by the bathroom and he whistled. I don't say that to brag by any means (trust me, my bikini bod is nothing to brag about), but it made me realize that maybe I was being too hard on myself. He had no clue what was going through my head at that moment, and that's because he sees me in a totally different way than I see myself.

I've lost weight this year (thanks to DoTERRA's Slim and Sassy Line) but I was still standing there being hard on myself. I snapped out of and reminded myself that my body doesn't define me, and that I need to love my body more and appreciate it for what it is - it just ran a half marathon back in March for goodness sake, so I have a lot to be thankful for! I guess I say all that to say.... don't harp on what you look like in that swimsuit, girl! Be thankful for your body and get out there and enjoy that sunshine!
