Summer Dreaming... My Picks for the Beach

On a particularly gloomy day in London I can't help but fantasise of ocean waves, sun loungers and cocktails on a tropical island far far away. Whilst this is far from my reality, I can still pick out outfits for my dream holiday. Plus, its practically sensible to buy swimwear now as its always sold out by June. 

Bikini, swimsuit, kaftan, swimwear

I love the high-neck of this bikini from Topshop, as it gives off a nineties vibe and adds covers the cleavage in a chic manner. If my stomach is on show, I like to balance it out, and this two piece is perfect for the job. The monochrome print is right up my street and is bold without being brash.

Triangl bikinis are everywhere I know, but I love the design of the Milly set. The neoprene is also super flattering and the sheen reminds me of leather. Perfect for those biker chicks. 

This leopard print swimsuit may not be everyone's cup of tea but it was love at first sight for me. One pieces are more elegant than bikinis in my opinion, but this one shows off a little skin with the cutout at the waist. I would normally never wear leopard by the pool but this blown-up, spaced design is refreshing.   

This kaftan from Topshop is the perfect cover up for the beach, especially over a black bikini. The deep v-neck reveals whats underneath and gathered front adds shape. 

Finally I chose this swimsuit from The Minimale Animale, which is a little out of my budget but I had to include it because I've been eyeing it up for so long. The mesh fabric shows some skin, and the appliqué seashells give a mermaid vibe.
