Sassy & Sexy with Kortni Jeane Swimmers

romper: Target // swimmer: c/o Kortni Jeane
sandals: Payless // sunglasses: H&M // bracelet: Honeymoon Souvenir

Like many women, I've struggled with body image nearly my entire life. I remember being in 6th grade and asking a friend to come out with my family and me for a beach day. I wore a bikini swimsuit that a loved and at some point during the day my friend poked my stomach and commented on its roundness. 

Even in high school when I was a size 4 I had a hard time with how I looked. I had a chest size that was bigger than most high school girls and a bigger butt. I broke out constantly and my hair wasn't straight and long like most of my classmates. Despite the size of my clothes I still had a bit of a stomach. Because of all this even on my best days I didn't really consider myself pretty.

Recently I found myself picking at things. I never thought I'd be one of those women that realized she was getting older and started being bothered by how that made her look. But when I glance in the mirror I see w few wrinkles that weren't there before, gray hairs that are getting harder and harder to cover up, little marks on my legs that I didn't have a few years ago. Sometimes it's really easy to look in the mirror and pick out the worst things, bypassing the good ones.

Which is why when I put on this Kortni Jeane swimmer I immediately knew I'd found gold. Despite my love for summer (long, warm pool days, cold fruit drinks, grilling... what's not to love?) I always get a little anxious about putting on a swimsuit. I'm no longer my size 4 self and my curves make swimsuits a little daunting.

But this swimsuit? Not only is it cute but it makes me feel fantastic. I feel retro and sexy and so darn sassy. Believe me, the idea of putting up pictures of myself in a swimsuit for the whole internet to see was a little scary. Until I actually got a look at these pictures. I feel beautiful. No picking out the negatives because all I see are positives.

Aside from making me feel like a total bombshell these suits are so much fun. With lots of different tops and bottoms option and tons of fun colors and prints you can mix and match to create a totally unique look. No more worrying about matching your friends at the beach because these suits are just as original as you are. And hello curvy girls because Kortni Jeane has sizes to fit those beautiful hourglass figures too! For reference both my top and bottoms are size large.

Want to feel beautiful this summer? Check out Kortni Jeane. You're going to feel like a million bucks in these swimmers.
