When you get an email about applying to be in a swimsuit blogger campaign, you really take a little second to think. Do I want my “not so perfect” body plastered on the internet in a swimsuit? Well, not really. But then, there’s the great photographer, makeup artist, hair team and swim suits by the one and only Lori Coulter… and BAM! I’m in.
This dream team made me feel like a total babe for the day. Talk about the ultimate pampering! It was full of poolside fun with cocktails, a pegasus, and plenty of great conversation with other local St. Louis bloggers. The best part was I had no self-conscious moments in my “itsy bitsy, teeny weeny, champagne polka dot bikini!” I hope I made you sing that yellow polka dots bikini song from the yogurt commercials 🙂
Lori Coulter is a dream for swimsuit designs. She is most known for her custom swimsuits. My mother has had over three suits from her in years past and when I told momsie about my email from Lori Coulter, she had nothing but positive reviews and excitement for getting my very first suit from the local designer.
The retro-inspired champagne and polka dots swimsuit I am wearing was love at first sight. For obvious reasons! Lori Coulter picked it out personally when she found out the name of my blog and the print made me just giddy with happiness.
Lori’s swimsuit campaign is inspiring with the hashtag #putonaswimsuit. Her message hopes to evoke confidence in every woman regardless of size and insecurities. Sure, I wish I had a six pack and maybe some ta-ta’s, but when you find the right swimsuit that fits great and can help you in areas that need a little confidence booster… all is right in the world. You can get your shop on with code champagneandpolkadots2016 for 20% off your order until July 31st. Enjoy!
