Kate Bock is feeling nostalgic. The 10-time SI Swimsuit model is ready to escape New York City weather and reminisce on last year’s photo shoot with Yu Tsai in Belize.

Bock shared a video with behind-the-scenes clips from her sunny feature. In the first snippet, she wore a light orange swimsuit from the Kate Bock X Bond Eye collection paired with a fun printed head scarf from Eliza Christoph. The Vancouver native posed for the camera with her toes on rocks in the water as she leaned against a green Jeep. In another clip, Bock wore a floral stringy bikini from ERES and necklaces from Jacquie Aiche and Cleopatra’s Bling.

“Tropical Kate Activating …. ⚠️⚠️⚠️,” the Pompette chief brand officer captioned her Feb. 16 post.

“Tropical Kate is THRIVING Kate! 🏝️,” SI Swimsuit editor-in-chief MJ Day quipped in the comments.

The montage was set to the sound of Al Green’s “Love and Happiness,” which is exactly what the 2020 cover star feels when she’s on set with the Swim Team.

“I think I knew that that was something I would have always wanted, but not necessarily something that I ever thought was a possible option,” Bock said about her decade posing for the magazine. “Every year I get nervous or wonder what might happen. You never know for sure that you’re back. And it’s always such an honor to be asked.”

The 35-year-old made her SI Swimsuit debut in 2013 and has been featured in the magazine every year since. Bock married NBA star Kevin Love last summer in a beautiful Great Gatsby-inspired wedding at the New York Public Library.
