She’s been making the most out of her summer weekends.
Charlotte McKinney sizzled in a skimpy two-piece during a day at the beach in Malibu with her beau Nathan Kostechko on Sunday.
The leggy 26-year-old beauty left little to the imagination as she took a dip in the crashing waves of the chilly Pacific Ocean.
Charlotte showcased her slim frame and taut abs in a black string bikini with a triangle top and a cheeky bottom.
Her platinum highlighted beachy waves were twisted up in a black claw clip with some face framing tendrils left out in the ocean breeze.
She protected her eyes from the bright southern California sunshine with a dark pair of slim black sunglasses.
McKinney kept her cover-up simple and opted for a retro looking pair of high waisted white linen short-shorts.
The actress has been a frequent beach bum over the last few months and declared on social media that a day in the sand and sun is ‘what every weekend looks like’ these days.
The Baywatch star appeared perfectly at home stepping into the sea, which was a bit cold, despite it being July.
As she waded into the waters, the temperature was a shock to her system and she wrapped her arms around herself while trying to get her body used to the cold.
Determined to get in a swim, Charlotte looked frigid while forcing herself into the icy waters
Charlotte eventually got more comfortable and was seen frolicking in the shallows.
Her tattoo artist boyfriend showed off his impressive collection of ink, which covers his arms, torso and legs, as he joined the stunner in the ocean.
The couple has been together since 2017 and they keep their relationship totally low-key, with Charlotte never featuring him on her popular Instagram page.
Recently, Charlotte spoke about her changing opinions around social media while putting her bikini body to work on the cover of the August issue of Hamptons Magazine.
Charlotte stated that she grew up with Instagram when she used to just post modeling pictures, but now fans want so much more.
‘They don’t care just about pretty pictures – they want to see everything. What I’m eating, what I’m doing, me looking perfect and also me not looking perfect,’ she said.
‘I am trying to adjust because now it’s not just about a pretty Instagram picture. I’m trying to grow with how the internet is growing, which is kind of scary, and I definitely have trouble with it,’ she added.
She also opened up about life during the pandemic, explained that she’s now looking more at the ‘bigger picture.’
‘It’s really made me understand less is more, and that you don’t need that much to be happy. I’ve simplified my life over the last few months, and I’ve taken this time to learn how grateful I am,’ she added.
McKinney added she is still doing her best to stay active and fit, turning her guest room into a ‘hot yoga studio’ and picking up a mini-trampoline for ‘indoor cardio.’
Charlotte starred in a 2015 Super Bowl XLIX Carl’s Jr ad, which kicked off her successful model career.
Aside from her work as a model, McKinney has starred in a number of films such as Baywatch, Flatliners and most recently Fantasy Island, with The Argument, starring Danny Pudi and Maggie Q coming soon.
