Swimsuit: c/o Eden Pier
Hat: H&M
Kimono: H&M
Necklace: gift from Rachel

There's nothing like spending the day soaking up the summer sun by the pool, on the beach, or in your backyard! Although overexposure of the sun has some bad consequences, the right amount of exposure has some great benefits! Did you know sunlight can help with depression? Sunlight deprivation can cause a condition called seasonal affective disorder (SAD), a form of depression--this occurs a lot in winter months and with people who work long hours in office buildings. Sunlight also increases oxygen content in human blood and builds your immune system--how awesome is that? Remember though that exposure to sun should be done slowwwly and you should slowwwly build up your tolerance to it! If you do spend a long amount of time in the sun, use SUNBLOCK! Nobody wants to be the lobster guy.

When you're chilling in the sun, you're gonna want to look cute and chic! Eden Pier has a collection of adorable swimsuits and cover-ups that are perfect for the summer sun! Today I'm wearing their Tribal Graphic Retro One Piece and it's one of the cutest one pieces I've ever owned. I love the contrast between the tribal graphic top and solid bottom--it really makes the swimsuit pop! It's easily the go-to suit for any occasion.

Below are some of my beach/pool/tanning essentials:
cold bevy to stay hydrated // favorite books to indulge in // sunblock to prevent them burns // shades to shield your eyes // phone to stay connected to the cyber world // footwear to get to and fro places (because going barefoot can sometimes result in pain)

Eden Pier is currently offering 20% their entire order for all my readers!
Just use the code AUTEURARIEL20 at checkout and you'll be looking fabulous in your new swimsuit in no time!
