Summer Lovin’

Summer Lovin'

Since I was little I loved the water and the ocean – for a while my nickname was Waterbaby. And just as I have, my love for the sea has grown.

The beaches in the Western Cape are beautiful and plentiful, but more times than not they are pretty windy. So, I always like to take a knitted sweater to keep warm – this time I decided to amp it up a little with leather football jersey from Topshop.

My bikini bottoms are also from Topshop. For a while I have been searching for a 50s-style bikini, until recently when I realized it was honestly not hard to find.  Topshop has a pretty great variety of 50s inspired bikinis at really affordable prices! I chose to pair it with my favourite Periquita bikini top.

 With bikinis, dressing for your figure is the most important thing. Since my hips don’t lie, high waisted bikini bottoms suit my body-type (I think… I hope). Dressing for your body-type is important most when buying any item of clothing. NUMBER ONE RULE.

Outfit Details:

Bomber Jacket: Topshop

Bikini Bottoms: Topshop

Bikini Tube Top: Periquita

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

 Love Jess

    Beautiful photographs! I love the sea too but haven’t yet got the opportunity to be around the sea too often. I don’t stay anywhere closer to a sea :) Loved your outfit, you look lovely! Thanks for sharing :)

    Gorgeous bikini top! I kind of hate my tummy area so hunting down high waisted bottoms that isn’t dowdy is a yearly mission for me. Topshop only had these extreme floral printed ones when I popped in and I ended up in a monokini for most of the summer :)

      Thanks so much! I actually saw these ones on Topshop’s website months before they were available in the South Africa Topshop stores so if you’re still interested in high waisted bikini bottoms, maybe consider buying them online?:) xx
