Sassy Swimwear To Suit All Mamas! Time To Live At (In) The Pool!!
I think there’s a slight misconception about life here in the UAE, I reckon people think we all just live in our swimwear at the beach and pools – all day every day and prance around like we are on holidays 24/7? Right? Well, they’re probably correct to a certain degree but we do have winter here, we do feel the cold, we do long for it to heat up a teeny bit more (but not ‘furnace-hot-weather’ which is currently on the way!!) and we do suffer from ‘First World Problems’ where we complain that ‘it’s toooooo cold’ around January and February to be exact.
So, like everyone in ‘cooler’ climates, when summer clothes, beachwear and swimwear all hit the shops and online stores early Spring – we are ALL OVER IT BEFORE YOU CAN SAY ‘WHERE’S THE SUNCREAM’! In addition, it’s also a time where people are beginning to think about booking their family summer holiday’s abroad and starting to shop for that summer wardrobe.
To help you get that summer-style-wardrobe ready, I’ve complied my favourite swimsuits and bikini’s that are online and in stores right now (including that bikini above which I just recently purchased in H&M and which fits SO well with those flattering ‘high-waisted’ bottoms).
Get Summer ready with these articles:
Loving the ‘Ath-leisure’ vibes from this bikini and the colour just screams ‘SUMMER’! Well done H&M!
Cut-out swimsuits are popular than ever these days (I’m a big fan!) and again the ‘ath-leisure’ look of this makes it quite a trendy piece plus black is always a winner.
What I love about this set is that you can mix and match with a black or white bikini for example and the fact that it is more covered up on top – gives you extra sun protection so total ‘WIN WIN’. Also – the top can double-up as a ‘going-out’ top with a midi-skirt for a night-time look! Get it from H&M.
Those of you who know me and follow my Instagram account @ginghamandsparkle know that I’m a bit of a ‘Gingham’ fan. Predictably – this one by Floozie at Frost French has gone straight into my ASOS basket and I have purchased!
It was the ‘palm-leaf’ print that won this for me – there’s just something about that print that just makes me think of tropical far away places!
Slogan’s on t-shirts and jumpers are part of my signature look – I’m just always drawn to them so this ‘slogan’ swimsuit from ASOS is no exception – #want!!
Polka-dots – the print that just keeps on trending! Again another ‘mix and match’ set that you can team up with a plain black or white or even striped bikini for a cool ‘print-clash’ and have you looking super trendy around the pool.
For those ‘non-practical’ days by the beach or pool where you don’t have the kids in tow and you can just lie on your sunbed sipping cocktails and sunbathing……do those days exist?!?
Florals are always a good idea when it comes to swimswear and this ‘high’waisted’ bikini bottoms and top set from Zara ticks all the right summery boxes.
Hope this has started to give you all those ‘fluttery’ holiday feels and get you planning your summer wardrobe – I know from researching this post – it certainly has. My credit card in particular is feeling erm……’summery’?!?
See you back here for another fashion fix and until then….remember……
