If you follow along on my Instagram (which if you don’t DO IT, it’s where I spend most of my time!), you already know that James, the boys, and I spent the last week at Topsail Beach in North Carolina. We loved how simple and laid back the whole community was, while a lot of people were there on vacation, it didn’t feel overly touristy like Florida beaches.
We spent the majority of our days on the beach, then at night walked around the town and hung out with some of James’ cousins that were also in Topsail that week! It was a great time full of relaxing, laughing, cheat meals, and casual style.
In an effort to be more authentic, I’ve decided to not photoshop my body in pictures anymore, I’m working on being a healthier person, and I want people to know the REAL me. I have been afraid to wear shorts in the past because of cellulite and flab, and my arms are super giggly so tanks have always been hiding my arms with cardigans. However, since I started working out 6 days a week and eating better, I’m more confident in my body because I know it’s not going to look like this forever, so I want to show more of it off as it changes.
I’ve rounded up my favorite vacation looks in this post and linked them for you. I (surprisingly) packed in outfits this time with the help of followers on my Instastories, so I was able to pack just enough and not overpack for the week. It was the first time in my life I didn’t take 20 outfits for a 5 day trip and I felt really good in all my picks!
