Let's Talk Swimsuits: What I've got Vs. What I Want (Rosegal Wishlist)

Welcome July! Summer is at the door, do you feel ready for it? Today we'll be talking about one summer essential and that is: a swimsuit. Choosing a swimsuit plays an important part in getting ready for beach. What kind of swimsuits do you like? Do you like bold colours or do you prefer neutral ones? Do you have any favourites or preferences when it comes to colour and cut? Do you follow trends when it comes to swimsuits or do you just choose what suits you and stick with it?  Do you plan to try something new this summer or keep to what works for you? For example, I've been wearing bikinis for ages but I'm currently looking for a one piece because I have a new scar I want to cover up, but who knows perhaps I'll fall into my old pattern and order a bikini instead. I'm also open to trying trikinis. Let's say I'm still undecided but judging on what I've been seeing lately, I have a feeling I'll make my mind soon. Who knows maybe I will order a one piece, a trikini and a bikini? I do like swimwear. There is no reason why we shouldn't be stylish while vacationing.

Speaking of swimwear I own, today I'm going to show you my bikini collection. I'll share both what I want and what I already have. To create  swimsuits wishlists, I've collaborated with Rosegal site. For inspiration, I turned to my fashion illustration. I enjoy illustrating swimsuits, and there were a few swimsuit models that I kept drawing again and again, so it's good to see that someone already made them, so that I don't have to ( I don't know how to sew swimsuits anyway). Illustrations help me narrow down my choices. If there is a swimsuit design I keep illustrating, the chances are good that is the right swimsuit design for me. That's my logic anyway Anyhow, the collage you can see above features three one pieces, all of them printed. The first one has a more subtle print, just a bit colour against the black. The second one is a mixed print, a combination of stripes and florals reminiscent of D&G designs. The third one piece is a bit different, it comes in a tropical print, but it also has short sleeves that makes it stand out. This time of swimsuit design might offer some additional protection for those of you with sensitive skin, but don't forget that sun protection products are a must. 

Now let me show you my swimsuit collection! Basically all the swimsuits I own are colourful bikinis. Going through my bikini collection, I must notice that I have a soft spot for patterns: animal print, geometric print, floral print, navy print, stripes. Printed swimwear is obviously my thing. However, athing  I love is a classical black bikini. I own only one, but I wear it pretty often. In the past, I used to go for light coloured bikinis (I loved white and yellow ones) but I realized that with time they can become a see through so it is better to stick with  printed or dark bikinis. Right now, as you can see most of swimwear I own is printed, so I don't have to worry about it being see through. 






Is there any trend you're excited about trying out? There are quite a few exciting swimsuit trends this year, right? The ones that caught my eye the most are (not surprisingly) bold pattern ones. Prints that seem to be trending the most when it comes to swimwear are: polka dots, floral and fruit prints. Stripes are always trendy in my book, for what says summer better than navy print and stripes? Just like with clothes, swimwear has its classics, and you probably won't make a mistake if you you opt for a classical model. When it comes to swimwear details often make all the difference. A bit of ruffles can make all the difference. Embroidery is also breaking into swimwear, especially one simple embroidery technique known as smocking. As you can see,  I already have one embroidery bikini, but I might order another one.

So, tell me...Do you like summer? Are looking forward to it?  What kind of swimsuits you do normally wear? How do you like my picks? What should I order?  Is there such a thing as having too many swimsuits? That would be all. Thank you for reading and have a fantastic weekend!

  4. Oh they are lovely printed pieces! :) Bikinis have been my go-to for a while. I briefly tried the one piece but I just feel more comfortable in a bikini, even with my weird belly post babies haha.


    Hope that you have a lovely weekend ahead of you! I have a friend's birthday party tonight I'm looking forward to :)

  15. "What kind of swimsuits do you like?" - i can answer your question easily. i dont like swimming. i would never go swimming in a sea or a water park. but for lying in the sun (sometimes) on hot summer days i have to choose a bikini or a swim suit - a wear both. but i like swim suits more. the look of it is not so important for me: it could be a floral print or one colored.

    hugs

14 WAYS TO STYLE A MAGENTA COAT FOR WINTER

Hello dear readers and fellow bloggers. The cold isn't going anywhere, so I'm back with more winter styling ideas. Today I've prepared for your another posts that shows multiple ways to wear a coloured coat. Coloured coats have been trendy for a while and it's a trend I cannot get enough one. Choosing winter outwear that works for you is so important in embracing winter fashion. If you remember, I already blogger about 30 ways to wear a short black coat, 18 ways to wear a long beige puffer and 20+ ways to wear a tartan blazer.  Now, this magenta coat is such a statement piece.  I've bought it two years ago and I've worn it many times since then. How many times I'm not exactly sure, but I did wear it at least 15 times on the blog. Altogether, I have 17 outfits with this magenta coat documented  and photographed (3 of which I wore last week). I'm actually a big fan of coloured coats because I feel they're such an easy way to add colour to our winter …

LAST MINUTE V-DAY DRESS OUTFIT IDEAS

Happy Valentine's day! Today I'm back with some last minute Valentine's day ideas. When I think of Valentine's day outfits, the first thing that comes to my mind is a dress. So, today I'm going to include some dress outfits I wore recently as well as some of my old looks including my old Valentine's day outfits. Looking back, I seem to always opt for a dress on Valentine's day. I like wearing dresses anyhow so wearing a dress on Valentine's day seems like a no-brainer. Throwing on a nice dress is such an easy way to create a feminine and chic styling. My first outfit proposal is a step back from the typical Valentine's day outfit as it features a checkered dress. This black and red dress is still quite feminine but the checkered print gives it a bit of rock chic. I wanted to keep the colours minimal and  the outfit functional so I wore it with  a brown faux leather coat  and camel boots. I accessorized with a brown tartan scarf and a black bag. Scr…

28 WAYS TO WEAR A GREEN TARTAN PUFFER JACKET

This Alpine Pro green puffer is one of my 'go to' pieces when it comes to winter outwear. I spotted this jacket in kids department of a sportswear shop seven ago and was so happy when it fit me. It was an impulsive buy, but one that payed off. Normally, I'm not an impulsive buyer and I prefer to think things through, but when I saw this ski green tartan jacket I knew it was meant to be. I was immediately drawn by its print and colour. I'm not sure how many times I have worn this tartan puffer jacket since I bought it back in 2013, but I'm pretty sure it's more than 30. My goal with all clothes is to hit a minimum of 30 wears. While I browsed my blog archives I found that I have worn this puffer in 26 outfit posts. I added two more outfits I haven't posted before and ended up with number 28. I'm positive that I wore it more than thirty. I don't take photographs of my daily outfits (maybe I should) so I cannot give you an exact number, but this jacke…
