By no stretch of the imagination is it bikini weather. Nor is it likely to be any time soon.
So why am I standing outside on wet ground in temperatures barely in double figures?
It’s because this post will ultimately be part of a style challenge. I was invited to choose a piece of beachwear from Bonprix and style it two ways.
This nautical bikini caught my eye. I love the shape of the top and the red tie accents just add a little something.
I guess this is a variation of one of my daytime staple looks- breton stripes with a floral scarf. Only in this case I’m using my scarf as a sarong for a look suitable for going from beach to bar.
This second look is one I hope to wear on my laid back summer holiday in Devon. For idly perusing the shops and walking along the shore.
Love Liz x
