As I gear up for spring and the southern California sun shining down on me, I definitely want to invest in Ashley’s Lucky Brand bikini or Chantal’s Elizabeth Southwood for Sauvage crocheted number! Props to them for working what they’ve got for their Sports Illustrated photo shoot with a 2AM call time! No wonder there was so much emotion; they barely slept, and spent the morning rolling around in the sand in the hot sun! But again, these women worked their greatest accessory — their confidence — even though they might not have been feeling it!
Shawntel exudes confidence to me. She seems like a joyful and fun person to be around. While watching this week’s show, Kiptyn asked, “Of these ladies, who would you want to go on a trip with?” I chose Shawntel. I have no doubt that we’d be laughing and relaxing. She doesn’t seem to be high maintenance or uber-competitive. My favorite outfit of Shawntel’s this week was her slim-fitting purple off-the-shoulder dress, which she wore to dinner. It is seriously a must-have — and I love how she paired it simply with a turquoise ring!
Poor Britt, she finally had a one-on-one and a dress that I thought was pretty cute, but it just didn’t work out the way she had hoped. As she made her surprise exit on the little dingy, I contemplated over adding her peach BCBG Max Azria Silk Eyelet Cutout dress to my closet for future island visits or spring weddings I will be attending. While watching her goodbyes, I think she might have sold me on it.
Emily again stole the show wearing a colorful vertical striped Maxi dress, which was something she picked up in a gift shop in Costa Rica! Gotta love this girl! Unfortunately, that exact dress might not be in reach for us, but thank goodness for Possessionista for finding the best match she could, a Max & Cleo Sunset Maxi dress that is almost identical to Emily’s! Ashley worked it, too: With the confidence of a rose in her hand, she wore a cute black halter neck jumper! I love fashion finds that you can use for multiple occasions!
Confidence was key this week! If the ladies were lacking it at all, Brad carried them through — as he was confident in who’s hometowns he’d be visiting next week. We said goodbye to Michelle and now we’ll be saying hello to the last four ladies’ families!

I fear that I’m beginning to sound like a broken record, but Emily is still carrying the torch as the best dressed! Everything she wears is something I would, and could, wear! Week after week, Possessionista confirms that most of Emily’s fabulous finds fall in any woman’s budget! Emily rocked a sexy and luxurious-looking Forever 21 swimsuit cover-up that was perfect for her private island getaway with Brad. My favorite part of their date was their romantic dinner by the water — she wore the cutest sundress accessorized with the perfect necklace!
The women are on the gorgeous and romantic island of Anguilla pulling out their sexy bikinis, bathing suit cover-ups, and sundresses — all while setting sail on yachts, picnicing on private islands, and rolling around in the sand for Sports Illustrated. Not too shabby, and neither are the ladies! They are shedding their clothing and prancing around in next to nothing. And again, a woman’s confidence is her best accessory! It’s not easy being in a bathing suit on television, but these women work it this week!
