We’re deep in the throes of fall weather, which means the only thing that we can think about is a trip to the beach. The same is true for SI Swimsuit model Olivia Ponton, who took to her TikTok account on Oct. 25 to share a throwback to her epic summer by the beach.

The 21-year-old spent several weeks during the warmest months traveling around to different tropical European locations. While we certainly thought her idyllic beach hopping was a good idea at the time, now that it’s cold out, we’re especially appreciative of her forethought to take advantage of the warmth while she could.

The first snap in the slideshow that she posted to her account featured the model donning her best ruched red triangle bikini for an afternoon by the water. The second featured a sweet snap of Ponton bundled up in an oversized sweatshirt in front of a beautiful beach sunset.

“happiest at the beach,” she captioned the pair of photos, a sentiment that we can absolutely get behind. Not only has she proved as much in her summer travels, but it’s always been evident to the SI Swimsuit team during her epic photoshoots for the brand. In both of her back-to-back features, she has brought her best energy, fitting for a self-proclaimed beach lover.

And, though we can’t enjoy the beach right now, in lieu of spending time in the sun, we—like Ponton—will be reminiscing on times past during the coming months of cold.
