TAKE ME TO THE BEACH

As I'm going away on holiday in less than three weeks and I'm guessing most of you have holiday's booked or in the pipeline, I thought I would do a round up of swimwear brands that are forever on my wishlist.

I've been following a few on Instagram lately which has not only tempted me to invest in some gorgeous new swimwear but has also persuaded me to get to the gym and start operation bikini-bod - better late than never! ;)

So if you're looking for some new bikini's, swimsuits or general fitness inspiration to channel your inner beach babe, check out my swimwear hotlist...

Triangl

Traingl is an Australian swimwear brand that has everything from moulded balconette bikini's to bandeau styles and mix and match bottoms that include statement prints, metallics and colour popping neon tones. I particularly love the neon set below which is also available in aqua blue and pink - how cool does it look with a tan?

They do ship worldwide but there may be duties or foreign taxes applied when delivery is made. You can find the whole collection here: Triangl

Mode Mwah

If you're heading to Ibiza or Marbella this summer for some stylish pool parties you may want to take a look at Mode Mwah as they specialise in customised bikini's, swimsuits and cover ups that can often be made to measure.

I started following this brand on Instagram after spotting their swimsuits at the Chic Networking fashion show in Liverpool and I love their unique designs, prints, brooch details and peplum style swimsuits. You can find Mode Mwah online here: Mode Mwah and they also have a store in Liverpool.

Chiara Leah

Chiara Leah specialises in fitness and yoga wear but also has a swimwear and beach collection which includes this amazing aztec bikini. All of the bikini bottoms feature this strap detail which is sure to look super hot with a tan! Check the brand out here: Chiara Leah

Kiini

If you love more of a bohemian vibe when it comes to beachwear, Kiini.com has a vibrant and colourful range of handmade bikini's so no two are the same! I love that you can buy the top and bottoms separately so you can mix and match. These sets would look perfect with beachy hair and beaded jewellery. Shop the collection here: Kiini

STATEMENT SKIRT & FRINGED KIMONO




What I'm Wearing: 

Fringed Kimono - Coco Boo
Top - H&M
Choker -New Look
Skirt - River Island
Bag - Zara
Boots & Belt - Topshop

 If you didn't already know, I'm a huge lover of kimono's. This obsession started with a paisley one from Topshop and since then my collection has grown and grown with tassled/fringed varieties becoming my ultimate favourite. Although purchased a while ago from the fabulous Coco Boo (check them out on Asos Marketplace here), this kimono is still an absolute staple item that I throw over anything from dresses to skinny jeans and a tee or in this case a bold, bright skirt.

My skirt is a new addition to my wardrobe from River Island and despite it's crazy bright colours, it's been worn many times so far - and this isn't a regular occurrence for me! Here I've paired it with a sleeveless scoop neck jumper, statement gold choker and my mega chunky boots from Topshop which make me feel like I'm ten ft tall. But they happen to be comfy so I can deal with that...

Big thanks to Fish 2 Photography for taking these photos as it did start to rain mid photo shoot and we ended up huddled around an umbrella - the things us bloggers do for fashion!

Comment below and share your fabulous kimono's with me so I can have a peek - surely there's a few more I can buy!

UNDER THE BLOSSOM TREE






What I'm Wearing:

Denim shirt - Kookai (past season)
T-shirt - River Island
Necklace - Marks & Spencer
Jeans - Topshop
Bag & ring - Primark
Pointed flats - George at Asda
Watch - DKNY

If you spotted my latest post including a couple of new accessories I picked up from Primark you will have noticed that I've been obsessing over my new coral bag, a complete steal at £12!

I've been using the bag everyday so far and today I paired it with my Tres En Vogue tee from River Island and a trusty pale denim shirt which is an oldie from Kookai. Denim shirts are a great substitute for a coat or jacket in the Spring as they provide some warmth but not too much, especially if you're a softie like me! To be honest, I'd forgotten I even had this throw on number, oops.

I'm spending the bank holiday weekend in Cheltenham and with the glorious sunshine it seemed the perfect opportunity to take some snaps under the most gorgeous blossom tree! Definitely wish this was my garden...

What are your plans for the Bank Holiday weekend?
