Tropical Takeover

Seafolly tropical one piece blogger styleI've always had a soft spot for bright and playful prints, and never more so than during the summer (for obvious reasons).  So, last month's stay in the South of France presented the perfect opportunity to whip out one of my favourite Seafolly swimsuits! After an embarrassingly long time spent in my wardrobe with the tags still attached, I was finally in a climate warm enough to wear it.  Phew.  The brand's sporty styles have always had a hold on me, so combine a zip-up front with an irresistible tropical print and I'm in heaven.  Anyway, while padding around the pool in neck-to-hip toucans and palm leaves, I wondered about the ways in which vibrant, tropical colours and prints could be introduced poolside a little more subtly...

THE EDIT: SUBTLY TROPICAL

Eugenia Kim 'Do Not Disturb' Hat   |   Clarins Sunscreen Milk-Lotion UVB/UVA 50+   |   Dolce & Gabbana Jof Platform Flip Flops   |   Vivienne Westwood Orb London Ceramic Watch (Garment Quarter*)   |   Invincible Summer by Alice Adams   |   Estella Bartlett Midnight Jungle Pineapple Necklace   |   Max Mara Light4 Round-frame Sunglasses   |   Triangl Paloma Bikini   |   Melissa Odabash Lois Midi Beach Shirt in Tropical Mint

Seafolly tropical zip up one piece
Seafolly swimwear blogger in South of FranceLooking at the above edit, a couple of my favourites include the Triangl bikini (and so the love affair continues with their gorgeous designs), and embellished poolside platforms by Dolce & Gabbana.  Sadly, I didn't act on my friend's book request quickly enough and so missed the opportunity to read 'Invincible Summer' poolside, though I suppose it can now be a spa-side read!

Anyway, the above handful of items could either be used as standalone tropical hints, or equally solitary factors in a whole party of colour!  Personally, I tend to opt for a balance between the two; intense botanical prints with toned-down accessories, or simplistic neutrals paired with OTT tropical add-ons.  Although, uh, in this instance I'm just one girl in a one-piece...

  1. What a beautiful swim suit, hon!! While I always tend to re-purchase a few solid colours ones (your traditional classic black, aqua, beige'y/peach'y nude) I go nuts for the bright prints! They are forever welcome in my wardrobe :) I love that there's a zip at the front, it adds a unique touch to it. Looking stunning, hon!

  12. Wow that print is so bright and colorful! I love the color combination, and I agree that I would wear it with toned down accessories as well. I also like how the zippered front is colored too, if it were black it would be such a different effect. Which is one I've seen at a store before. I love colorful prints and I think this looks perfect for summer!

The print is beyond gorgeous. I go crazy for a lovely tropical prints. I've always been a fan of colours...and as you said, the Summer is the perfect time to wear bold colours and prints.

  44. Honestly, my first thought when seeing you in the swimsuit was 'DAAAAAAAAAYUM. So beautiful.'

    I'm not a swimsuit girl nor a bright print person either, but you rock it so well. When on the beach or by the pool, I just like to relax with a sunhat, a good book and SPF150! Haha <3

  59. I've never seen a one piece swimsuit with a zipper in the front so that detail itself made this one piece very unique. You look great in one piece, Gabrielle but you also rock the two pieces really well.
