Stripes and Polka Dots

Saturday 28 November 2015

I am featuring more Sirens Swimwear from the new range on the blog today and one of them includes the bikini that I decided to keep from the Ship the Shop program.

I love a classic striped bikini and had to add one into my Ship the Shop order, last year I added a Sirens striped full piece to my collection and I am still in love with it. This is another great addition to the new range - each time I tried each one on it became harder to choose which I would keep. 

As you may know by now I don't really stick to a particular era and when I photographed this bikini I just could not decide what to do and all I knew was that I wanted to try dark lipstick with swimwear and I like the result! Speaking about lipsticks, ever since I have found ones that are long lasting it has made it much easier for me to wear my lipstick to the beach and not have to worry about it going all over the place - so for summer at the beach it is usually no make up or lipstick and possibly waterproof mascara if I feel like it! I might do a future blog post about my favourite lipsticks - what do you think?

I still have one more swimwear post to share from this Sirens Swimwear series on the blog but decided to put these two together for a post. I chose to keep the Holly bikini, I don't have any swimwear like it, so I could not say no to this one. I fell in love with it's square neck, ruffles, polka dots and the beautiful vibrant blue. It reminds me of a lot of bikini's that I have seen in 60s advertisements so it now belongs with me. I will probably blog it again sometime, so this is why I have combined the two for this post. I am excited to wear this one for many summers to come!

And I leave you with this final photo of myself dancing, because I usually break into dance most places I go lol!

  1. More fabulous swimwear choices. Stripes and spots, what's not to love?! I'd love to hear about what lipsticks you find last long enough for a trip to the beach, go ahead and share! x

  2. They both look amazing on you!

  3. Beautiful suits - I second, Alecia, they both look sensational on you (and I totally love the dark, vampy lipstick choice with the first shoot - tres chic!).

  4. Nothing wrong with some dark lippy! It looks dreadful on me, but totally works on you :) both bikinis are super cute - just wish this brand was local!! x

  5. Love it! I love the blue one on you (blue always looks fantastic on you) but I love the striped one too-it looks like a vintage Barbie suit or something. You're making me miss summer!!! XOXO

  6. Sublime suits both of them!!! The stripe is my favourite though, love the high waist and the simplicity of the cut. You rock swimwear!👙

  7. Such lovely swimwear. Both look great on you but I really do love the choice you picked! I also love the dark lips with your striped bikini-- so bold and beautiful!
