Amongst the palms in Sundae Swimwear

This Island Life | Island hopping in Samoa

If you’ve been looking for an affordable one-piece swimsuit for every tropical occasion, this is it. With a scoop front and low back, it’s just as good out of the water as it is in. I wore this black one-piece constantly in Samoa – whether I was snorkelling out the front of my villa or pairing it with a long skirt for sunset piña coladas. What I love about this swimsuit is that the fabric is really thick and fully lined, so it really can double as a bodysuit.

On a more serious note, there was more to this outdoor shower shoot than showing off this swimsuit. We’d just come back from a day out on the boat where I’d made the biggest island life rookie error imaginable. While I put on sunscreen before we headed out on the boat, I was so excited by the adventures we were having, I didn’t re-apply at all during my five or so hours out at sea. This outdoor shower was basically a first response medical treatment. A few hours after these shots were taken, I was bright red and my body temperature was running at a million degrees. You can already see the epic sunburn taking hold in these shots, even under the cold shower water.

Sunscreen people, sunscreen.
