If there’s one place to show off your favourite new swimwear, it’s Ibiza!
So naturally I spent some time choosing my favourites and also my favourite beach accessories ahead of our trip, and thought I’d round up my faves in todays post. As much as I love bikinis, I have found myself preferring swimming costumes lately, and the two in this post are the ones that make me feel the most fabulous! Above, my new pink Heidi Klein bikini is absolutely perfect in so many ways – it’s the most perfect shade of pink, and the bandeau style of the top is exactly what I adore the most; I find it most flattering for my body type, and if I catch a tan, I won’t be stuck with any peculiar tan lines either!
I’m all about accessorising so my poolside look is no different, I wore a cover up from Revolve and my PANDORA necklace and rings to complete the look. I like my sunglasses to be classic and chic, this Karen Millen pair is my current go-to.
When it comes to beach beauty, the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour range is an absolute favourite; their SPF 50 stick is great for applying to any especially sensitive spots, while the original 8 Hour Cream fixes any flyaway hairs, acts as a great lip balm or brow tamer, and even nourishes any burnt bits or dry areas of skin! After my evening shower, I love to nourish my skin with their 8 Hour Oil too – the whole range is wonderfully multi-tasking, making it perfect for taking away!
If ever there was a swimsuit designed for posing – this is it! I splurged on this dreamy Zimmerman number for that perfect time of day when the sun looses its intensity, and you want to look fabulous by the side of the pool as the evening turns to golden hour. Perfect for pool parties or swanky beach clubs, it’s flattering, beautiful, and also strapless so again if you catch a tan; no nasty lines!
A far more affordable but equally gorgeous swimsuit is this beautiful white bardot style – it’s so comfortable, I feel fabulous when I wear it, and it’s totally timeless and chic. If you’re tempted to treat yourself, you can use code ‘JOSIE15′ at the checkout to save 15%!
Finally, to complete each bikini or swimming costume are my favourite beach accessories! A lightweight shirt dress is the perfect way to cover up and add even more glamour to a poolside or beach look, and the beautiful timeless design of this Heidi Klein coverup has been my absolute favourite on recent trips. My Tory Burch tote bag fits all of my beach essentials inside, and my flat sandals are fairly affordable so I’m not precious about them on the beach, and of course easy to slip on and off, as well as adding a stylish finish to the look!
What’s your beach style? xoxo
