It”s officially Spring but I think someone has their climate control on incorrectly. Yesterday we hit a scorching 35 degrees in Sydney and Summer is still a few months away. Still there”s no better excuse to lie on the beach, eat ice cream for lunch and a salad with Mojito for dinner. After all it is still important to stay hydrated and if that means we don”t have to cook, all the better.
Now clearly it”s time to dust off the summer clothes but somehow digging for an old pair of swimmers never gets me enthusiastic for the beach. Much like trying to start exercise after winter, the onset of hotter days usually also means the purchase of at least one new swimming costume and perhaps sandals and throw-on beach wear to match….we wouldn”t want to clash would we?
After years of having my mother price consciously purchase swimmers for me which essentially meant getting whatever was on sale, I have learnt that buying something current, in the right shape, size and patter/color for you is everything! Sure my mother would be appalled if she found out my last pair cost in the three digits but then again she doesn”t really get in the water, go to the beach, or will ever know (unless you tell her). One of my favorite picks at the moment is the two piece stripe & floral print number coming from the new Mink Pink swim range 13/14. Structured to maintain shape, and completely perfect, it goes so well with their Summer collection.

In fact, when Sarahteaa & I went to check it out, we seriously struggled finding our favorite coverup. With so many gorgeous throw on dresses and awesome prints, we managed to narrow it down to 3 but this is not a drawing competition amongst kids….a winner must be named. For Sarahteaa, it was this flirty bright floral singlet top. Add a pair of denim shorts, Mink Pink shades, some essential accessories and sandals and we”re beach ready!
