My Edit - Cute & Affordable Swimwear

6.5.14

No matter how much time I spend drooling over Norma Kamali's perfect bikinis on Net-Ă -Porter, I have to face the facts: my lifestyle doesn't really allow me to spend £400 on a bikini. I am sure I could somehow convince myself to make that jump if I lived in Los Angeles all year round and entertained my friends with pool parties and beach picnics. Sadly, it isn't the case at all. I spend my Summers in the South of France and I do quite a bit of travelling, but it still wouldn't lower the cost per wear of a designer swimsuit enough for me to go for it. 

As I was hanging out with Loulou at the weekend, we were talking about swimwear (she is off to Santorini soon and I am off to Portugal) and she told me all about the amazing collection over at Marks & Spencer at the moment. I often turn to them for lingerie, slips and thermals, but I never thought of looking at their swimwear selection. How wrong was I? It is really cute and all within the £30 t £40 mark. Exactly what I want to spend on a nice swimsuit for the season. Heck, at that price I could buy two, but I still have a couple bikinis from last year that I love. 

Out of the four styles above, I ordered the abstract print one and I was tempted to also get the gingham one for a cute nod to Brigitte Bardot (when she was still someone you could look up to, nowadays it is a different story - and one I will keep for another post).
