It’s time you start loving yourself as you are RIGHT NOW.
Summer is in full swing. You know what else is in full swing? Short shorts, bikinis, cute but barely there dresses and crop tops.
We look forward to summer all winter. The bright long days, the warm sun touching our pale skin, cute clothes and fun adventures with friends.
But this past long, cold winter definitely brought one too many wine nights, tons and tons of pizza and comfort food on the snowy days, and little-to-no motivation to hit up the gym.
They say that summer bodies are made in the winter but I guess we missed that memo.
Or, maybe that memo is completely wrong. Every body can be a summer body, right? Right!
Sure, you may start off the season a little unsure of how much leg the shorts are showing or how you think the bikini top is fitting the wrong way. But you’re wrong.
Once the sun hits you and you can smell the ocean you’ll forget about all your body concerns and embrace summer and all that it has to offer you.
Of course, if you want to work out to get into better shape, we support you in that too.
Just know that you should be working out for a healthier body, not necessarily a skinnier one. And you NEVER need to work out to wear a bikini.
You can still indulge in all the ice-cream summer has to offer while also wearing a pair of denim shorts.
Incase you still don’t believe us, here are 14 body-positive quotes to remind you what it REALLY means to have a summer body.
