With Valentine’s day a couple days away I put together this look as a sexy little alternative to your LBD. The sweetheart neckline is sending all the lovey dovey signals whilst the pant leg is showing off some booty, making your legs look super long yet leaving something to the imagination
I’m kind of totally kidding/ kind of not. But I do like the idea of a strapless jumpsuit instead of a dress. It’s sexy and it’s comfortable!
Triangl bikinis, the bikini brand that’s flooded our instagram feeds since 2014. Amirite? But are they worth it? Well, yeah. It’s less than $100 for a bikini top AND bottom AND you get to mix and match your size. You don’t get that option anywhere else! That’s what I love about it. I’m usually forking out at least $80 for a top and at least $50 for a pair of matching bottoms at most other brands.
Their new styles, such as this one featured, as well as some even more recent ones released this week are giving us more cheeky bottoms… which to be very honest is what I’m all about. I hate 100 different tan lines on my butt, so the cheekier the better haha. But if you’d prefer more coverage they definitely have those options too.
This triangle bikini top is by far my fave fit of all the triangl styles, it’s comfy, fits my bust shape, doesn’t slip down as the bandeau sometimes does, and doesn’t give terribly awkward tan lines.
Here I’m wearing a size small in the top and medium in the bottoms because I can’t stand muffin top. So if you’ve ever been interested in a neoprene bikini I’d say Triangl is your go to. My only complaint is that if it’s a particularly hot day the neoprene on your butt isn’t very breathable as much as normal nylon swimmers. Not the end of the world though. Life goes on.
Faking a dress with a top and skirt. Genius, eh? Ok, maybe not revolutionary, but it can take you a long way when it comes to making new outfits everyday. All you need is a few comfy black skirts (they don’t necessarily have to be tight) and some black jersey tanks or tees and you can mix and match 100x over! I specify jersey because tucking in jersey verses tucking in woven is alot more comfy and flattering, as it doesn’t untuck itself as much. One note to the wise is if your blacks aren’t 100% matching in colour (one might be more green or purple than the other) then split it with a belt like I have here.
Somewhere between a skinny jean and a boyfriend jean lives the mom jean. This style is for someone who likes the look of boyfriend jeans but doesn’t feel like going full oversized and baggy, but still wants it’s comfort. Ta-da! We’ve found your new fave pair of jeans (well at least I have).
Guys, I’ve been living in this pair of jeans ever since I got them and today I’ve styled it with a plain white shirt which I’ve knotted at the front to keep it casual and to emphasize the high waist of the jeans to elongate the leg. I wore them to brunch here with a cute crop top for a more summery casual vibe.
In contrast to my last bikini I wore which was borderline active/ yoga/ swim I’ve switched it up with a bohemian, crochet, tassel-ey number. The practicality of swimming with crochet swimwear I think is meant to be a side thought tbh so let’s just focus on how cute it is and how good it is for tanning.
On a side note of tanning, I’ve got a lot of comments in regards to my ‘tan’ and #tangoals and as someone who is an advocate on good skin and healthy living I do need to remind you all that most of my #tan is fake! Yes, I have a natural tan because I go to the beach & swim & get tanned by default but these days I don’t sleep on the beach for hours because I really want to preserve the elasticity in my skin, avoid sun spots, wrinkles, burns and skin cancer. I want to say it’s lucky that I don’t burn, and I’ve only ever burnt once in my life but I also want to add it’s not luck, it’s SPF 30+ and 50+!
So next time you have tan envy on your fave insta guys and girls and are inspired to go lie out in the sun for hours on end please have my voice on your shoulder reminding you to protect and love your skin while you’ve got your youth. Fake tans are only bad if you look orange, but if you get a good quality tanner with under tones suited to your skin type no one will knows the difference whether it’s fake or real. Your older self with thank you for it.
Went down south for the day with Scott to get out of the city and get away from the crowded beaches of the Eastern Suburbs. This beach was Thirroul beach, about 1 hour (with good traffic) from the city. The serenity is beyond peaceful and water was warm and clear. More location pics to come.
This bikini top is a little 2-for-1 gem, it’s called ‘active bralette bikini‘ which I can only assume is also good as active wear. I’m gonna say you can wear it while you’re doing yoga, pilates or low impact sports. So if you choose to invest in one and you’re into early morning yoga by the beach you can jump on into the water without having to change! I’d do it if I did yoga but I’m not a morning person, so no dice.
I haven’t injected much colour into my bikini wardrobe much until now. As soon as I saw this little number I knew it’d be perfect for the season and perhaps a gateway into me collecting a few more bikinis that aren’t just black or white! MinkPink is a great brand for picking up some fun pieces to brighten your summer wardrobe and basically your life… So get on it if that’s what you’d like to do!
This new year is in full swing & I’ve been living alot of it in playsuits due to the heat but I’m not complaining. If you haven’t been to Sydney in the Summer you’re missing out – I’ll be rolling out great spots to visit over the next couple months so stay tuned
