I always say that I will highlight my vacation looks, and I never get the chance to. However, this time here it is! I spent a few days in Nassau, Bahamas celebrating my mom's birthday/ graduation and I had to celebrate the occasions on the island with a proper slay. I'm huge on bathing suits, I buy new ones almost every vacation and I always get asked where I buy them. I'm extremely busty so I have to be careful with how I choose swimsuits. Luckily, for this vacation I had some perfect ones that fit just fine.
Another thing about vacation wear is that I never splurge too much. I splurge on everyday attire, but I stay on a budget for my island slay. That is until I'm living the lavish life and I can stroll the beach in Gucci cover ups and designer bathing suits, but for now vacation style on a budget it is. None of my pieces were over $40.
Vacation is a great time to be relaxed and stress-free. There isn't a need for too much when it comes to clothing, a few colorful pieces and you're good to go. There are a lot of different vacation styles. My vacay style is either tight and clinching my waist or graceful and flowing in the wind. There's no in between and my outfits clearly show that. All of my Bahamas looks are as follows:
The Casual Slay
My first day on the resort I didn't want to get in the water, so I went to lunch with my mom and sat on the side as she swam in the pool. I wore a top to an old bathing suit which you ladies seemed to love, and I paired it with some denim shorts and my new floral headband.
The second day I brought out of my favorite cover ups that I found on ASOS. It clinches at the waist and went perfect over my black bikini. It can also be worn during the summer with some shorts and a crop top. I'll definitely be wearing this as apart of an outfit. It's sold out on ASOS, but I tagged a similar one.
This outfit was a favorite of mine and a lot of others. It got so many compliments on the resort, and believe it or not this top was the most comfortable because I wasn't popping out of it every 2 seconds. I wore the bottoms to the red bathing suit tagged above and paired it with an ASOS striped top and ASOS sarong. The sarong comes in a lot of colors, I definitely recommend that for an easy and cute beach look.
This dress is without a doubt my new favorite item in my closet. It's colorful, stylish, and comfortable. The colors complemented my tanned skin so well and I absolutely love the bow detailing on it. This dress is perfect for not only vacation, but a summer cookout, a date, or even a day party. Don't be surprised if you see this dress come out once a month this summer. I wore it with some Aldo sandals I got almost 4 years ago.
I brought this swimsuit back in March for my Spring Break and I am still obsessed with it. At first, I was nervous because with my hips I didn't think the cut-outs would look good on me, but to my surprise these bottoms are actually one of my best fitting. The top was sold completely separate, but they still manage to complement each other very well. I was wearing my Nike hat because by this day I was over it all! The printed bottoms I wore are sold out, but I tagged the style. They are sold in a lot of colors.
I wore my Tory Burch flip flops with all my bathing suits. They're my go-to vacation shoes. These are a few seasons old, but here are the current season flip flops.
I hope these looks can inspire some of your upcoming vacation slays or just beachwear in general, especially for my girls with curves.
