Much of the East Coast and Midwest saw snowstorms last week, and while many of us stayed inside with a cup of hot cocoa, one body positivity blogger decided to go outside IN A BIKINI.

We’re seriously in awe.

Blogger Leah Stanley posted an Instagram photo of herself outside during Winter Storm Stella.

Leah lives in Vermont, and her photo looks epic. And people agreed. Her photo has over 1,000 likes and counting.

Leah shared a message of body positivity with her photo.

A day later, she shared another photo from her snowstorm photoshoot, and another message.

Furthermore, Leah often shares photos of herself on Instagram wearing things that some people think she can’t. And she looks pretty amazing in everything.

Additionally, Leah told Yahoo! Style that she took the photo because she felt an “itch” for bikini season.

Leah’s photo and her words have us excited for bikini season, too. But not quite excited enough to wear a swimsuit in a snowstorm! We’ll leave that to the pros.
