If 2018 was anything to go by, 2019 just might be Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel‘s year. Despite dealing with an “excruciating” loss early in the year and picking up those pieces, Bethenny hasn’t let any of the emotional setbacks of her year derail her. She’s really taken to stripping it down for social media lately and showing off her awesome bod, so we love that she rang in the New Year in the same way. On Jan. 1, the Bravo star took to Instagram to send fans and followers well-wishes with a steamy bikini pic.

“✨ Happy New Year ✨,” Bethenny captioned a photo of herself on a dock, sporting the most chic vacation ‘fit we’ve ever seen. The 48-year-old mama donned an adorable yet skimpy patchwork bikini with a seriously incredible cover-up on top. We’re so obsessed with this mesh pink number, complete with gold stars. Plus, her faux-Birkin has us absolutely dying — the mock tote with a screen print of the famous Hermes bag is perfect for a tropical getaway. You definitely don’t want sand in a bag that costs 10k plus!

The RHONY babe has been turning it out for the cameras in hot looks quite often lately, so it’s no surprise Bethenny is keeping the pics coming. She really gave her co-stars a run for their money back in early December when the New York housewives took to Miami for a fun getaway for the upcoming season of the show. Bethenny stunned in her skimpy suit, while her RHONY pals kept things a bit more conservative.

But Bethenny’s dope body hasn’t always been praised in this way. Back in the early days of the show, she was constantly under scrutiny for her weight and propensity to stay thin. But as the years have gone on, Bethenny has proven she’s just always gonna be a little firecracker — tiny as anything, yet more fierce than most.

We really hope Bethenny keeps this self-love and confidence going throughout 2019. We could use a few more bikini pics before the year is through!
