Swimwear: The Edit

Pictures from my shoot in last month's Red Magazine shot by David Gubert. Swimsuit: Elizabeth Hurley. Wetsuit: O'Neill
It's true: I'm a summer girl. I could've browsed swimsuits and a holiday wardrobe for this post all day and all night.

By the time you read this, I will be in Ibiza, but something strange has happened - I don't feel prepared. Usually, I've stocked up on bikinis and fedoras and Isabel Marant-esque micro shorts (and then taken them back as they do NOT suit me) by June. But work being quite busy and the fact that I'm not going on a proper, long holiday until September has left me lacking in a summer wardrobe. 

Luckily, Ibiza is only for 2 days so I can make do with my Mango kaftan and my one H+M bikini but this post is probably a little bit for me, as well. So I apologise if everything's 'my' style (i.e made for boyish shapes with no boobs) - I did try.

  1. Just found your blog (via the WIT blog) and love the Frugal Edit picks... do you fancy doing a post on outfits for a British seaside holiday wardrobe?

  2. Great edit. Fab styling. I must admit that I haven't looked too closely because I have already purchased my holiday wardrobe. Studying this may tempt me into buying more and I have no willpower. I am loving the pics from Ibiza (not jealous at all.) H x
