Having just touched down from sunny Thailand yesterday to arrive in a frigid Hong Kong, my thoughts are already turning to my next vacation for Chinese New Year! My tastes in beachwear have unfortunately gotten just a little bit more expensive in the last few years. As soon as I tried on my Seafolly swimsuit I knew I probably wasn’t going to be buying any more from H&M any more – for most of us once we’ve gone past 25 we need something more than a little triangle bikini to do our bodies a favour. Now I’ve become accustomed to the idea of spending out a little more on swimwear, I’ve also started to cast my eyes over cuter cover-ups too. Maura and I are both fans of new line Nude is Rude by Marisa Zeman, and now I’m adding some pieces from Diane von Furstenberg’s new collection to my wishlist – these colourful pieces are just perfect for poolside elegance.
This little cotton romper is also super-cute and practical (US210), though I do think that considering all these pieces are just cotton, the prices are a little on the steep side, and that I’d be tempted to look at these more as inspiration for a tailoring experiment rather than splashing out. After all, when I’m on holiday I’m not really wanting to be worried about getting seawater and sunscreen on my expensive clothes!
