It's summer and I really want to go to the beach. But instead I've collected together the beach-appropriate attire I would like for such a trip. There's a lot of polka dots, ruffles and stripes. Plus some bows.
And for something more covered up there are some lovely one-pieces - yellow ruffled, halter polka-dotted or perhaps the striped and polka-dotted 'azure like it' swimsuit from Modcloth which is perfectly suited to pale skin providing SPF 50 protection.
I do love the taupe dot bikini, which is surely so very Emma, and I'm thinking she'd like the navy scalloped and eyelet-edged bikini and the white broderie anglaise ruffles...although I really am never sure about white swimwear.
Though I'm not in general a fan of playsuits, this stripy/nautical/retro number is a two-piece so I really don't think it counts. Plus it seems totally practical for frolicking on the sands and practicality is my number one reason against playsuits.
