The Big Easy
I’ve been feeling the need to be in water lately and since Memorial Day pretty much marks the beginning of summer, this past weekend was the weekend it was going down.


Initially we thought about heading to the beach for the day, butย who’s kidding who, I live in Boston – the water in May is cold as a motherfucker.
Like, why evenย put yourself through that.

So we picked up a kiddie pool and did the next best thing.
This is pt. 3 and the lastย of my shoots with Jordan.

      1. No, we’re in Central Texas. We got storms, rain, thunder, tornadoes, wind, floods, etc etc etc. I wish I had been on a boat, partying like a rock star. Monday night was the worst. But we’ve had rain every day for god knows how many days in a row. Houston and Austin got it the worst. And then there was a tornado not too far from my folks’ farm. Crazy stuff. Hope your week is going well.

      2. Our area wasn’t the worst hit. We were kind of in the middle. But we’ve still had rain every day (mostly at night really). I had some scary moments with tornado warnings, but I looked that bitch in the face and took her head on. Videos, images, etc. I was actually outside in the worst of it LOL What’s for dinner this week by the way? ๐Ÿ˜‰

      3. Glad to hear that Lola!
        Dinner yesterday 1/2 chicken and a spanish salad. But tonight will probably be cereal.
        I’m such a loser.
        This weekend though, it’s back on!
        Speaking of which, are you able to get back out to the grocery stores or not yet?

      4. I didn’t eat yesterday. Got busy and forgot LOL. So I’m starving today. Not sure what dinner will be tonight, but pork is sounding pretty good right about now. Maybe I will do some chops with something spicy on top. Never know until The Man calls me and tells me what’s good at the store each day. Since he works there, we get the best of deals on ingredients. Love having that hookup. I’ve actually been out twice in a month. Each time about an hour or so. Both times drove me insane (and I almost passed out once or twice from the panic), but you gotta be stubborn with this kind of thing. Who needs meds when you’re as stubborn as me?! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Good idea in going with the kiddie pool! If it’s 80 something degrees in the city, minus that by 20 or 30 for the beach lol

      1. Exactly! Hell, even when its ridiculously hot, there’s no warning that ocean water lol the beaches are brutal out here!

      2. Really? That’s closer to you than me lol I got a shitload of lakes, Salisbury beach, Hamptom beach, and Rye beach which are all cold as fuck!

    1. Lol – you risk having a bunch of foul-mouthed babies running around thinking they own shit.
      But alas – Jordan plays for the other team so he falls into big brother status.

  2. You just be glad my kids didn’t see your swimming pool, that is asking for trouble. Your bathing suit/swimmers/cozzie is ‘totes adorable’ or as us oldies say ‘the bees knees’.

    1. Hahaha! Thank you!
      And without the kiddie pool, you’ll have to lug all that stuff, sun lotion, chairs, food, coolers, towels…all that shit, without a kiddie pool you’ll have to lug it all to the beach.
      Just saying..

  3. Haha, glad I didn’t go to the beach then. Cold water would’ve been such a disappointment!
    Leave it to you to celebrate Memorial Day in style with a kiddie pool. Love it! Looks like it was fun!

  4. Best idea ever!!! This shoot is so flipping cute and beautiful. I wanted to get a kidding pool for my dog, but heck…. after seeing how much fun you were having, I might have to keep it to myself! I love the vibe of your look….. bohemian meets mod meets current and classic. Stunning!!! xo- Danielle

    1. Abrielle girl.
      Kiddie pools are so much freaking fun!
      I ran out of battery before other people came but it went down.
      We’re getting floaties for the pool this weekend ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Anyone who can rock it in a kiddie pool gets my vote! There is a lot of swagger and a whole ton of sexy going on in that pool…the only thing missing is….ME! The cherry on top LOL. BTW, the sexy black Asos swimsuit is the FIERCENESS…I see you ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. hahaha @ The cheery on top— hahaha… BUT have you seen me in a kiddies pool! We Danas can rock a kiddies pool fabulously. LOL.

    2. Haaaaaaay ๐Ÿ˜€
      Yes boo – you should have been there, kiddie pools for adults are so damn underrated lol
      We’re buying floaties for the pool this weekend, you better come :p ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. My parents went down to Hilton Head and said that the ocean right now is all of 56 degrees, so a kiddie pool is definitely the right way to go.

    Ridic photos per usual–killer suit and you look AMAZING, obviously. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yeeaaaah I’m gonna have to say noooo to 56…
      Definitely noooo.
      And thank you!
      It was ridiculously hot, that kind of humid heat too so this needed to happen ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. I’m a little kiddie-pool-jealous. Definitely a must-try until sea water hits human-friendly temps.

    And you can walk around with that swimsuit and that booty forever. Some dope shit going on right over there in Boston, I can tell.

  8. hahahahhaa, this is why you need to like come to Barcelona, the water in May is HOT HOT HOT – i think … it should be right? I avoid the beach LOL, Aint I just the weirdest ever! BUT I would be all over that kiddies pool. Besides, FACTS have proven that I am better in kiddies pools than the sea. LOL. In fact I need to buy one of these and install it on my friends rooftop terrace! On a more important note, I NEED a plunging neckline swimsuit!
    You taught me to write in CAPS!
    good day twinnie, xx

  9. Amazing bathing suit, dana. I am so jealous, that you guys have such great weather over there. Over here it’s even too cold to have a nice barbeque without rather warm jackets. .. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

      1. Usually end of june. But maybe we’ll get a few good days before that ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. There are the pools one gets in a splashes around and then there are the pools that you’re just meant to sit poolside and look good at.
      You went to the latter and good lord did you pull that off well ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Wow, that suit has one dannngerous plunging neckline, I’d totally wear it as a top, as I like the way it dips on the back too! Frolicking in the kiddies pool was a good idea, I cant swim (I know!! Dont ask!! haha), so I may get me some kiddies pool action this summer so as not to feel left out!

    1. Yes, you’ve got to get in one of these.
      I was just telling someone, after a couple drinks, you’ll be buying floaties.
      Did I mention I’m buying floaties this weekend?
      *eyebrow wink*

    I wonder if I can fit a kiddie pool on my apartment balcony? *she says wistfully*
    Let me be serious…I definitely can’t but a girl can dream right?!
    You look beautiful Dana. I love that swimsuit on you!

      1. A slip and slide?! Say what?!
        To be fair, my parents have a pool so I run home (and drag friends along with me if I can) when I miss a garden (yard) and feel like splashing around.
        I say splashing around because sadly I’m that girl who perpetuates the black girl stereotype as I can’t actually swim! I know I know *hangs head in shame* I’ve found somewhere to have lessons though. Gotta go soon.
        I think we need to get a slip and slide for the summer! Thanks for the idea!

  12. Cannot believe we missed this ::sigh::
    #Dissappointed I love these photos! Looking forward to s summer of pool days ahead of us! ๐Ÿ˜

Go on, get it out..
