Two-Piece Beachwear Outfit

Beach Style Vacation Style Resort Style

As most of you know, My family reunion was last month aboard the Carnival Valor. One of the stops was Cozumel. A few of us went on the Mayan ruins as our excursion. Afterwards, our driver took us all around the island. We passed by a couple of really beautiful beaches that we just had to stop to take photos. And this beach was one of them. A couple of us brought a change of clothes because we knew at some point on the tour we’d want to do a photo shoot. I can’t remember the name of this beach but it was absolutely breathtaking. And I love how it wasn’t occupied by tourist…only a few locals were there eating at the outdoor restaurant.

I’ve had this two-piece outfit (which is actually my favorite beachwear outfit) since early spring and have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to wear it. Whenever I’ve travel this past spring and summer, it always came with me. But I could never find the perfect spot (or reason) to wear it…until I came here.

A little something about me: Although I really like them, I NEVER wear crop tops. They look cute on everyone else. I feel like if you’re going to wear them, then you should have minimum back fat and love handles and I don’t fit in that category.

I hope you had a fantastic weekend. Mine was pretty laid back. I had a couple of photo shoots, watched the George Michael documentary (I’m a HUGEEE lover), ate all over town, and got to finally meet our friend’s newborn. She is absolutely scrumptious!!!

Thank you so much for reading. I love having you here. Grab a glass of wine and stay a while. And as always, have a beautiful day. XOXO

    What a gorgeous beach outfit! Perfect for a vacation and you look stunning as always

  5. October 23, 2017 / 9:16 pm

    So feminine and dainty. I wouldn’t want to wear it near the water though. I wouldn’t want it to get ruined.

    • October 30, 2017 / 9:38 am

      It got nice and wet with no issues!

    • October 30, 2017 / 9:38 am

      This was in Cozumel, Mexico.

    A family reunion on a cruise sounds like so much fun! This was the perfect occasion for this outfit & you look beautiful! The beach looks amazing & is the perfect backdrop.

    • October 30, 2017 / 9:39 am

      We had a great time on the cruise as a family. Thank you so much for stopping by!

    You look very fresh and comfy in this 2 piece outfit Love It!

  8. October 24, 2017 / 2:22 am

    What a beautiful outfit! It looks great with that gorgeous scenery in the background, too!

  9. October 24, 2017 / 3:55 am

    That’s a cool outfit. I need something like this for those walks at the beach.

    • October 30, 2017 / 9:40 am

      Yes, perfect for beach walks. Can’t wait to wear this again my my next beach excursion!

    This is stunning. I would love to be able to wear this on the beach. Love the colors of it and it looks comfy.

  12. October 24, 2017 / 8:36 am

    What a perfect post on this rainy day here for me. I love the beachy dress, the softness and flowing attire.

  13. October 24, 2017 / 9:01 am

    Wow this is so gorgeous and beachy! I would of never guessed it was from Forever 21. I’m taking a trip to Thailand in a few weeks and this outfit will be perfect for the occasion!

    • October 30, 2017 / 9:42 am

      I only shop with them online. There you will find their best! Half of the stuff online can’t be found in their stores.

  14. October 24, 2017 / 10:13 am

    This is a gorgeous two piece for any beach vacation and fabric looks so comfortable as well. I too want to check it in the forever 21 store here.

    • October 30, 2017 / 9:43 am

      Wont find it in the store. Most of their nicer pieces are only online…which is where I shop if I’m shopping Forever 21.

    Oh Candy you blow me away with your beauty every time! I too love beaches that are not full of tourists, in fact the busier it is the most off putting I find it! This outfit is super cute and I know what you mean about crop tops but the way this fits you is super flattering, I think given that the front has more shaping rather than just being straight makes it very flattering too ?

    • October 30, 2017 / 9:44 am

      You know what, that may be why I like it. I love them on other people and never on my. But this one I do! Thank you so much for the wonderful compliment and stopping by!

  16. October 24, 2017 / 2:07 pm

    What a fun family trip! I think you look amazing and you are rocking that crop top!

  17. October 24, 2017 / 4:20 pm

    this top and skirt combination is stunning, it looks beautiful

    You look so beautiful as always candy. Your two piece beachwear looks great to you. Perfect location for photography.

  21. October 25, 2017 / 2:12 am

    Oh, how I’d like to be on a Caribbean beach right now! I bet the Mayan ruins were awesome! You look so stylish even at the beach, your outfit looks very fresh and suits you very well!

  22. October 25, 2017 / 3:22 am

    You look gorgeous! I love beaches and this beachwear outfit is quite flattering…I love this crop top! 🙂

  23. October 25, 2017 / 7:30 am

    Lovely piece, reminds me of an outfit I bought while in Spain for vacation last year,sexy enough to go out into town on a warm day yet casual enough to put on and hit the beaches.Really lovely.

    • October 30, 2017 / 9:45 am

      I cannot wait to visit Spain again. I bet the outfit you bought is super cute!!!

  24. October 25, 2017 / 10:38 am

    Umm love handles and back fat where??? Girl you are snatched! I love that outfit on you and you looked like you had a lot of fun during your photoshoot!

    • October 30, 2017 / 9:46 am

      Yes Ma’am, they are there! You’ve just got to know your better angles and body positions to hide them! LoL

  25. October 25, 2017 / 1:00 pm

    This is a fun vacation look! I love the embroidered details. It’s always fun to stock up on new styles for a tropical adventure!

  26. October 25, 2017 / 1:34 pm

    You are an ultimate beauty! I am loving this two piece outfit! I may just wear it all the time – it would be hard to take it off! It looks so comfortable as well! xo

    • October 30, 2017 / 9:47 am

      Too too kind! Thank you!

  27. October 25, 2017 / 2:44 pm

    This is such a lovely outfit and you look seriously amazing! That view is simply stunning, I bet you had the best time. I’m scared of crop tops too!

    That is beautiful. It looks fantastic on you. What a perfect beach outfit. Now, I just need to plan a vacation.

  29. October 26, 2017 / 10:14 am

    OMG firstly, you look SO much like Rihanna! Like the resemblance is AMAZING!
    Also, how gorgeous do you look in that outfit? Right up my choice of clothes! I’d rather wear something like this than a bikini!

    • October 30, 2017 / 9:48 am

      People tell me this ALL THE TIME!!! Only once have I seen the resemblance. Thank you so much!!!
