Red One Piece & Sharing Some Thoughts

Swimsuit: Forever 21 | Hat: Mango | Sunnies: Ray-ban

I have never done a post like this before so this was pretty out of my comfort zone to be taking pictures in a swimsuit.  While taking these photos I was thinking a lot about people's perception of me (and all bloggers out there!). A lot of the time bloggers may seem like they always have their sh*t together, but really the only thing you see is what they WANT you to see. I try to be as real as possible, but sometimes it's hard to feel like I am truly being real with you guys when I am constantly worrying being a "good" blogger. Somedays I don't wash my hair, my self-tanner is a patchy disaster, and I don't get out of my PJ's until 3pm. Even though I wouldn't consider myself a big blogger it's still easy to get sucked into trying to fit the mold sometimes. This summer as I have gotten more consistent and focused with blogging I really try to remind myself to not compare myself to other bloggers and people in general. Sometimes it's easy to get discouraged, but I always remember that I didn't start a blog to be "popular" or to make money, I started this blog for me! So here's to being real and I will always try to be as transparent as possible! I know I am not perfect or the biggest blogger out there, but I do want to be relatable on some sort of level for everyone that reads Gingham and Glam. Thanks for listening to my little rant and thank you so much for taking time to read my blog whether it's your first or fiftieth visit here... xx Brianna

  1. Loved reading your thoughts! It's always refreshing to hear/see bloggers get real with their readers. Also kind of obsessed with this one-piece! So cute!

    1. Thank you so so much! I totally agree though! I love when bloggers are real and I always try to be:)

  2. When you constantly worry about that something is slipping, sliding, or showing, you can’t really enjoy the day at the beach. So try to choose a swimwear which make you feel comfortable and look just as great!
