This past February I spent a little over two weeks in the most wonderful city in the world, Rio de Janeiro. People often ask me if I miss Brazil and if ever think of going back. The answer is primarily, no. I miss it but not to the point of waiting to make a life for myself there again. With the exception of this place. How could I not? The short two-year period when I harbored a home in Rio were long enough to make me fall in love for life. Over and over again.
One of the infinite reasons why I love this place so much is the local’s dedication to living a healthy, balanced lifestyle and their tireless passion for the place they inhabit. My days would start bright and early with a 7AM work out at the beach, surrounded by the most beautiful landscape you will ever see. There were countless options for healthy, fresh food restaurants to enjoy and even get delivered at your door.
For every video my husband and I put together there are always those we have to cut out because something didn’t go right. And now you know what I’m gonna say next: bloopers! Instead of letting it all go to waste I thought you might enjoy this
Haven’t seen the original retro-beachwear video yet? Here you go!
Today’s outfit is one of my favorites I’ve posted here on the blog (more so than the first video lookbook) I’ve been promising myself a retro inspired halter one-piece swimsuit like the one seen in this video lookbook for ages now.
But adding to the sad truth I’ve put on a few pounds I had no excuse but to cheer myself up with something cute that would flatter my body, give me confidence (even though I’m not in my ideal shape) and enjoy some compliments from other ladies at the beach. Heck yeah who wouldn’t? Anyone interested in purchasing this piece should be warned: sizes run extremely small so make sure you go at least two sizes up when ordering. Stay tuned for the outfit post that will follow!
