Have you heard the news? Leggings, arguably one of the most comfortable items of clothing a gal can wear, have made their way into the deep blue sea! Yes, that’s right, I’m talking about the freshest trend of sliding fashion: surf leggings!

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
Opening your eyes underwater can be painful to most. But closing your eyes underwater, and looking elegant while doing so is difficult. Throw on a mask!
