Coco Bay Swimwear | My Summer Wishes For You!

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.

Chic Sand Dunes Beach Photoshoot UK BeachAnother of my summer wishes for you, is that you take the plunge and wear those gorgeous outfits you'd planned in your head for this season.  Anyone else start imagining their looks a couple of seasons in advance?  Something I'd already pencilled in for this summer was an all-white beach look. 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.

  11. Ahhh yes, I needed this post as a burst of inspiration and motivation for the season! It seems like even though I've been having one of the best summers in terms of traveling, the work I've gotten done, and the amount of rest I've gotten, the summer is still flying by. I think that can be true of every great time in life, however, you have reminded me that exciting moments don't always just turn up knocking on your front door, you have to schedule it and search for it! That's what I have to do more of this summer to make every last moment count. What a hidden gem of a beach you found! xx

  12. Ahhh Gabrielle, these photos are the epitome of summer! You look incredible and you can better I headed straight for Coco Bay's website after seeing your swimsuit! I actually can't believe I've been able to lay on a beach in 30 degree heat, in the UK! Most definitely the best summer we've had in years!

  29. Oh that swimsuit is gorgeous!! Love the way the stripes fall in the centre, which creates a great illusion of wasp waist (a silhouette you already have, obvi!) but I mean that can super flattering for everyone. I love your hat as well. And this beach sounds like my kind of beach, too. Not too crowded but still beautiful.

  34. I noticed the gold necklaces immediately, they give such a cool summery boho vibe to this elegant white beach styling. Amazing how details like that can take a look to a whole new level. Speaking of accessories, I love the hat and the sandals. The swimming suit you have chosen looks divine both on its own and worn with those white capri pants. Seriously, that one piece striped swimsuit is soooo gorgeous. YOu've created such a wonderful summer styling. You look utterly beautiful!!!!! Stunning photography and location. Beach paradise!

    I'm loving this summer so far...and even if it is not exactly what I planned, I'm still very much enjoying it. I do like what you wrote about summer. I think that sometimes it is all about living in the moment. Summer is such a great time to just relax....and go for it!!!!

  38. This is so spot on! We're always so excited for summer to be here and then we get caught up in the crazy of life and it disappears with half of our Summer Bucket List NOT checked off. I've been trying to soak it up too over here, and we're headed to a beach tonight to make that happen! I'm definitely channeling your vibes to take some good pics there haha, you always look amazing! And I agree that it's the perfect time to kick off something new. The changing of seasons always energizes me so much.

  60. My favourite blissful beach babe, looking absolutely show-stopping gorgeous Gabrielle! This bandeau swimsuit is made for your magical self, and your hat is giving me all the "to die for" vibes! Your sandals are oh so cute too, all the sun-kissed and stunning-ness happening here :) Nothing beats an all white beach look and you're slaying it! <3

    I'm so happy you're living this summer to the fullest, Studland Bay looks like picture perfect heaven. The fact that it's deserted is a total win-win! Sand dunes make for the best backdrops and busy beaches are definitely not my thing either so I'll have to add this gem to my "beach list", we usually stick to the same beaches but you've 100% inspired me to try somewhere new! I love your inspiring and encouraging words, you're so right that summer is the perfect season to fulfil the hopes and wishes and ideas we've been dreaming of! <3
