Can you believe It took me over a year to finally wear this swimsuit?!! I got it for my Cartagena trip but the day I planned to wear this white crochet beauty, mother nature had other plans for me so back into the suitcase it went.

Now I know you're wondering why I never wore it to the beach back in NYC but I have a very good reason! 

First of all, it's finally hot in NYC, like beach trip, 95 degrees, almost too hot, hot! What an earful but whoohooo because your girl loves the heat!!!

This suit would be perfect for any beach but I had a particular setting in mind for it and wouldn't deviate from what I envisioned. I tucked this crochet monokini away and didn't pull it out until our recent trip to Aruba. I found the best backdrop along with complementary macrame hammocks that not only matched my suit but provided great relaxation in the shade.

The one-piece is quite figure flattering and highlights curves well. The straps are adjustable so it's almost a free size where you can adjust to fit as necessary. I styled my swimsuit with gold Indian anklets (Guyanese woman staple), African beaded bangles, a crochet and pompom choker and layered tassel earrings in ombre blue hues. I actually shared these layered tassel earrings on IG back in February and will be giving you all the details pretty soon! 


Happy Monday!
