British summertime is sort of here, when I say that I mean the weather is a few degrees warmer and its not constantly raining. The friends & work colleagues are happier as the sun is out and the BBQs are now out in force in London Fields so it definitely feels like summer. As all this is happening I started to think about my summer wardrobe and the holidays I have planned for July, starting with Barcelona. So here I have put together a beach day wish list with a few of my favourite bikini's on the high street. I love how the sport racy front detail has now filtered through from crop tops to bikini tops, but having them in tie dye prints has a nod to the festival / seventies trend. I think tie dye has been building for a couple of summer seasons but by next year I think we will see loads more tie dyed styles, so invest in a piece now. I've added a few other pieces I am feeling for this summer including the jelly shoes, really feel like they have made a come back. Also crochet tassel shorts; fringing is everywhere for spring summer and its not going anywhere for the next two seasons, in fact the fringing and tassels will become shorter and knotted together like shown on these Topshop shorts. To finish this wish list off I have included a fun beach towel, iridescent shopper bag and cat eye sunnies, a perfect purchase to update your sunglasses collection.
Let me know your thoughts. Which bikinis types you are loving for summer? Which stores do you shop from most for beach wear?
