Well, England is being positively miserable! Although I kind of love being tucked up all cosy at home when it is chucking it down outside, its hard to think this time last week I was lying on a beach in 40 degree heat! So, I'm just taking a little flash back to the summer that has now officially GONE.
I've always be a major fan of bikinis and go over board usually bringing more bikinis than I will even have time to wear! Bold prints and bright colours are the way to go, I seem to have particularly taken to leaf print this holiday. ASOS is my go to shop for swimmers, they have a really great fuller bust range and the swimwear often comes in a range of styles so you can mix and match which shape top or bottoms you want to go for. Very handy for alternating those tan lines!
The above look has the beach much have, Levi shorts. Super handy, super comfy and seem to just get better with age. This Bikini you can find here and a range of bottoms are available too. My bag is an Accessorize number which I fell totally in love with as soon as I saw it. Always gutted to see things go in to sale as this one did! It has since totally sold out but here is a bigger, slightly more practical beach bag in a similar mirrored embellished design. Lastly my Ralph Lauren sunnies which haven't left my face all holiday! The black version is available here.
This, I call my china plate look. I have a shirt in a very similar pattern and just love how fresh it looks! This bikini is actually last years which I found in the sale... I do always bargain hunt for everything! They haven't bought out anything similar again this year but am hoping a one piece in the same sort of pattern might just come on for the next holiday season!
Lastly, a very full on palm tree look. My favourite print of all! My sunnies as seen above are my Ralphies. The white beach dress was from H&M, one of there absolute bargain pieces at only £9.99 which I saw, loved, went back to buy and was out of stock in every single size. Totally gutted, I checked the page everyday refreshing rather a little too much... but it finally came back in and I got my hands on it. Phew! This bikini is an ASOS number obviously! Something very similar here in a non strapless version, print is equally as perfect!
So many bikinis, so little time... Until next summer!
