Finishing the Big Fat Summer Challenge!

Long time no post! I have been so busy packing and moving into my new home that I've had no time to blog, and really haven't done anything with my hair or worn anything besides t-shirts and leggings.  The first chance I got to go out and put on "real" clothes I decided to dress up and fulfill the "wear something that's Hi-Lo" challenge:

This dress is actually the Monif C Marilyn convertible dress that I've had for years, but never wear. It can be twisted at least 27 different ways and can be worn as a dress, skirt, or a top.  I'm thinking of doing a personal challenge to get more wear out of this dress and stretch my creativity in coming up with new ways to wear it.

Dress: Monif C. / Earrings: Charlotte Russe (old) / Shoes: Seychelles

And lastly, the dreaded BFSC two-piece challenge.  I've actually had this pic for about a month deciding if I would post it or not. I hoped I would get another chance to hit the beach or at least visit the pool (and take some better pics where my eyes aren't so squinty lol), but that hasn't happened so I'm stuck with this pic.
Swimsuit: Speedo
This swimsuit is a tankini instead of a bikini, but I have not been able to find a bikini top that gives "the girls" the support I need. This top has a good built-in bra and a racerback so it feels almost like a sportsbra.

Well, all good things must come to an end! I've had so much doing this challenge, and I've definitely expanded my fashion options. To see my past BFSC looks, click the "Big Fat Summer Challenge" link in the right column, or click here.
