Was it a week ago? Two weeks ago? One month ago? I don’t know, can’t remember. Time seems like a blur lately (but in a good way) so please excuse me for not knowing!

As I slipped into my bathing suit in Cartagena, I realized I didn’t bring a cover-up with me so I grabbed a midi skirt and ran downstairs to meet Chelsea, my photographer, for breakfast and a quick photoshoot. Only to realize that my outfit was pretty cute! “Who would have thought a bathing suit could double as a top?” I thought. Chelsea encouraged me to shoot the swimsuit (with the midi skirt). The pictures came out great! I loved it so much, I decided to post it to IG and the response was fantastic.

Which left me dreaming up the many possibilities of swimsuits…

Earth to Stephanie!

I just got back from Casa Pombo in beautiful Cartagena, Colombia… Although old and historic, I fell in love with the hotel’s character and charm.

More importantly, it can give you the confidence you need to strut your stuff and feel good about yourself in front of others.
