When I was a kid, I desperately wanted to be a mermaid. My parents taught me how to snorkel when I was 7, and from then on, I’ve loved the ocean. Slightly embarrassing but also equally cute was my obsession with the Australian science fiction series Ocean Girl, about a chick who could not only speak to whales, but had super human lung capacity. Man, did I envy that bitch. How sweet would life be if I didn’t need that limiting snorkel to explore the ocean?
I never developed flippers or the ability to breathe under water, but I’ve come to terms with it. Instead, I’ll snorkel and scuba dive, and put together amazing outfits like this one that feel mermaid-esque, without actually wearing a seashell bra.

Thanks so much! Even though summer is almost over I thought this would be some great inspiration :)

I love this post. I learned how to snorkel around that age as well! When my family went to Hawaii a couple years ago all the practicing in the pool came in handy:) Have a great day love!
