I also mentioned on Instagram that my fourth outfit was inspired by Rachelle. Sometimes it's getting dressed is easier when you have an 80% closet overlap with someone else and can borrow their style! Here's a side-by-side look at my copycat styling:

In the last few weeks I've had a few questions about what kind of bra I wear with my Barcelona Cami. I didn't even own a strapless bra prior to getting hooked on these camis, but now I'm so used to it that I forgot it was ever an issue in the first place
I don't know whether what I have is anything special, but it's this $15 Target option. I now have three of them because I use them so much! (They keep changing the link on this bra so if the link doesn't work, you can also search the Maidenform Self Expressions Women's i-Fit Strapless Bra on the Target site.)
I'm sure this is highly a matter of personal preference, so I polled some of my blogger friends for their recommendations as well:
Kellie likes this Soma Option
Noelle likes this VS Very Sexy Multi-Way bra
Carylee likes the Victoria's Secret Body by Victoria
Since we are on the subject of bras my favorite everyday bra that's not strapless is the GAP Favorite Wireless Bra. It's not especially cute but it's very comfortable for all day wear and stays nice and smooth underneath your clothes. And of course, with GAP there are frequent promotional codes so I usually get it for around $25.
I've also had a few comments on my "tan" here and on Instagram, and for the record it always comes from a bottle (and okay, a little extra help from those filters!). Even though I go to the beach a lot I use lots of sunscreen and stay under portable shade most of the time. But I do have a new-to-me product I've really been liking this year. It's this Norvell Sunless Foam:

I shared the rest of the products I normally use for self-tanning in this post but here's a quick recap for new readers or those who missed it:
Other tools I use in my sunless tanning routine:
Gloves: See the white part on those gloves? I cut the gloves off there so they cover just my hands. Then I wear these while I apply my sunless tanner so it doesn't stain my palms. It doesn't have to be the exact brand, really any dish gloves or latex gloves will work.
Foam Roller: "How do you apply sunless tanner to your back?" Easy! I apply a thick streak of the tanning foam to a 6 inch paint roller from the hardware store. Then I use the roller to reach every inch of my back. It also helps to use a handheld mirror in your free hand to look in the bathroom mirror while you do this.
Cosmetic Sponges: After I'm finished applying the foam everywhere, I remove the gloves, put a dab of foam on one of these wedges and apply it to the backs of my hands.
