shimmer by the pool

all right! time for part two in the hawaiian tropic + stylecaster series. i am a leeeeetle self conscious about posting this one, not only because i am super awkward, but because it's a whole lot of me in a bathing suit. so be gentle.



i have skin that tends to skip "tan" and go straight to "burn," so i always wear sunscreen when i head out into the sun — particularly if i'll be spending a few hours by the pool like i did shooting this video. my figure is a bit more 50s curvy than modern day skinny, so i embrace that with vintage style bathing suits and big floppy hats.

the next - and last, i promise - video is my favorite, because there's a lot fewer shots of me and a lot more food porn. and some recipes!

thank you all so much for the outpouring of kindness over the last week or two. it's hard to say it without just sounding like a hallmark card, but it really does mean a lot and i never ceased to be surprised and incredibly flattered by it all, big time.

have a lovely day!

  11. @lauren @mai pai @blogbytina @emma @made-to-travel @sarah @ashley @jamie thank you all so so much! it is really terrifying (for me at least) to put that much skin out there on the internet and it really means a lot to get such positive feedback. xoxoxo

  12. You put 'modern day skinny' to shame. Not to say that you're in any way not skinny, you are clearly healthy and in shape, but you don't look like you're on death's door like so many ladies these days. You've inspired me so much with these videos. Recently, whenever I'm getting down on myself for not fitting the cookie cutter mold, I remember how gorgeous you look without looking like a waif-ish. I ask myself if I'd rather look like you or some generic death-skinny-no-curves girl who doesn't enjoy herself because she's constantly obsessing about exercise, food or her body and the answer is obvious: You.

  13. @Rachael this is so, so incredibly sweet of you. i've struggled some with not being as thin as i might like - it's hard when you're surrounded by images of beautiful, stick-skinny women - but i do remind myself that i pretty much eat, drink, and do whatever i want, and if the price to pay for that is bigger thighs, hips and a bit of a tummy, i'm okay with that. life is just too short! thank you, endlessly, for these sweet words.
