Picture this: ocean waves crashing on a white sand beach, palm trees shadowing over you, while you’re sunbathing in a hammock. A pina colada in one hand and a book in the other. If this is what your summer looks like, I’m happy for you. All these things make for an amazing vacation, but what makes it even better is a camera roll full of ‘grammable pictures in hella fine outfits. So you’ve thought about your shorts, the skirts and ALL the sundresses. But have you thought about what you’re going to be spending most of your beachside time in? What? Haven’t you thought of all the swimsuits you’re bringing yet?
There are so many things to think about! The colour, the pattern, the silhouette – do you want to bring a monokini? A one-piece? Or do you want to pack a bikini? Better yet, do you want to just pack one of each (I approve)? Okay, I understand if you’re confused. So many swimsuits, so little time, right? Well, that’s okay, because I’ve been window shopping for my imaginary vacay to the French Riviera – stop laughing, I’ll make it happen – and I’ve created the ultimate swimsuit wish list. And for those who haven’t planned their holiday yet, don’t worry, these swimsuits will work their magic soon enough.
Being one with nature just got easier with this pistachio green leaf print swimsuit. The fluttery cap sleeves on the bikini straps are the USP and I’m sold. Sit back, relax and sip on fruity drinks while you bask in the glory of this flirty bikini set. Best. Vacation. Ever.
