Coco Bay Seafolly Castaway White Stripe Swimsuit
We spend the entire length of the colder months of the year daydreaming about sun kissed skin and days spent on terraces eating scoops of ice cream, and then before you know it, it's Autumn.  Oops.  But not this time!  Nope.  I've been grabbing this season by the horns and making sure to enjoy every single second of the sunshine and warmth.  Having never been a huge fan of overly crowded beaches, I was super excited to discover Studland Bay on the Isle of Purbeck.  It comes complete with sand dunes upon sand dunes, each offering privacy and seclusion.  Do you know what that means?  Beach day!  Or should I say, sand dune day?  With my new favourite bandeau swimsuit from Seafolly slipped on and embroidered sun hat in hand, it was time to soak up those rays.  Needless to say, I wish plenty of sunshine for you this season.  But what else?

As well as obviously wishing you all tons of sunshine that sees you wearing your new fave sunglasses ten hours of every single day, I do have some other summer wishes for you.  Wait, hang on I also wish continued warmth with that sunshine.  The kind of warmth and humidity that makes you feel as though you could be in the South of France.  Ooh.  Anyway, above all else I hope this summer brings you the kind of adventures you spent winter dreaming of.  The activities, the outfits, the locations, the picture-perfect moments - all of it.  If you've been waiting for a sign to dive headfirst into this summer, consider this it.  New business venture?  Do it.  New fitness regime?  Start it.  Better social life?  Arrange it.  More 'chill' time?  Schedule it.  Maybe you just really, really want more days spent with sand filling the spaces in between your toes.  Or you haven't enjoyed enough riverside brunches with your fave people yet.  Or you're yet to enjoy any of those spontaneous staycations you'd planned.

Whatever it is, my ultimate summer wish for you is that you get to enjoy it all.

Ta-dah!  Say hello to the all-white beach look of my dreams, by Seafolly via Coco Bay Swimwear.  This flattering, striped and bandeau swimsuit is such a chic update from the usual one piece style and even comes complete with a hidden underwire with moulded cups and boning for added support.  Oh, and gripper tape, to avoid flashing any passing seagulls.  I'm also now a beach-trouser convert, thanks to these white cotton trousers; so casual and ideal for throwing on before and after hitting the water.

Needless to say, even my beach looks can't escape my adoration of layered gold necklaces.  Favourites right now?  A two-layer metal piece necklace from Mango, combined with this triple-layered coin pendant necklace.  Literally THE easiest (and affordable!) way of achieving the trending look this season.  You're welcome.
