Life Is Better In A Bikini

Vacation Wear

The mantra on my summer holiday in the south of Spain is:
Life is better in a bikini!

A bikini is pretty much also the only thing I wear all day long. Except for my running gear in the morning for my morning run by the sea. I love running, also down here, where you have to run around 8 o’clock before it gets too hot. I meet all the other runners and all the old people on their promenade walks with their dogs or doing power walks.

In the evening I just throw on a maxi dress when going out for dinner with my family. That’s easy life.

I’m swimming, enjoying the sun, reading books, zipping cold white wine and eating lovely food. No complaints here!

I bought the RAIINE Kilauea Kaftan on sale just before we left. I’ve had my eyes on it for a very long time and I just new it would be perfect to wear on my summer holiday. The Toga Pulla Sandals is another great sale pick which I mentioned here. I love that they’re so cool and a bit too much!

I just bought the black sunglasses in H&M. They look a bit like a pair of Céline sunglasses, but these I can take to the beach and the pool without having to worry about taking extra good care of them.

I wear Chanel Frenzy nail colour on my fingernails and my toenails I give a french pedicure.

I love these images. The reportage is called ‘Matteau Swim’ and made for the ‘Unconditional Magaazine’.

I don’t often see so beautiful and cool swimsuit and bikini images. They’re shot in April 2015 by photographer Alexandrea Nataf. The gorgeous model is Phoebe Tonkin (25).

The images definitely make me wanna go for a swim and have sleek wet hair all day long!

Highstreet Bikinis

Bikini

Here’s a selection of cool bikinis from different highstreet chains. They’re all some that I would like to wear this summer.

I’m looking for a new bikini as my favorite from last summer is a bit worn out. I prefer either the triangle bikinis or the bandeau ones. I like when you can easily remove the straps when sunbathing, so I can minimize the white tanning lines.

Highstreet Bikinis

Like with clothes I’m not that much into print. Then it has to be very minimal, very special or the classic stripes. I’m definitely not into multi color or flower bombs as you can see from my selection. Maybe you can find inspiration in my bikini selection?

Off Shoulder Dress

Hippie Summer Vibes

Off Shoulder Dress

There’s a bit of hippe vibes this sunny Sunday with fringes, off shoulder dress, statement sunglasses and Greek Sandals.

This cool off shoulder dress from Neo Noir is cool and easy to wear. I’m sure it’ll be one of the my most worn pieces this summer.  I think Neo Noir makes some really nice and very inexpensive clothes. The brand is a good alternative when you’re looking for some very trend based things.

I like the hippe style when it’s not overdone. For me that means fringes and big sunglasses. So of course I love CHLOÉ’s take on the hippie style.

With this outfit I’m ready to go to the beach, have a lunch date in the sun and a Sunday dinner with friends & family.

Chanel Paddle Board

Stand Up Paddle Boarding

Chanel Paddle Board

The other I went on a paddle board tip from one of the lovely beaches north of Copenhagen.

It’s so much fun and good exercise too, both for arms, back and core. And it’s a bonus that you can actually also get at bit tanned while you are on the board. I get the feeling of freedom when I’m on the sea.

It wasn’t my first trip, but this one was challenging as the sea wasn’t completely calm. I love beach life and everything you can do on the beach including all water sports.

I would love to have my own paddle board. Until then I’m fortunate enough to have a close girlfriend who’ll lent me her board.

She’s a member of a Paddle Board Club – it’s a good idea to be, as you can have your board stored there and also borrow boards.

Paddle Board Wear

You can go paddle boarding in anything you feel comfortable in. I prefer to wear a bikini and a pair of loose shorts, a cap, a pair of inexpensive sunglasses (if I fall into the waterI might loose them), and a high sun protection sunscreen is also very important. The sun is reflected on the sea, so it’s extra important to protect both your eyes and your skin.

No shoes are needed – it’s just to wear to go to the beach!

Highstreet Swimsuites

I’m looking for a new swimsuit. This is my top 12 highstreet selections.

I clearly like swimsuits with halterneck and v-neck in different variations.

A black swimsuit is definitely always the safest choice, at least for me it is. But maybe this year I should be brave and choose a swimsuit in another color?

The thing about swimwear both swimsuits and bikinis is that you really do need to try it on to be able to decide which one to pick. So I’m only looking online to get inspired and to see which stores to visit and which swimsuits I would like to try on.

Zara – Rose Halterneck Swimsuit //

Highstreet Swimsuit Selection

The Gold Jagger swimsuit from Topshop is so cool. Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll ever get tanned enough to be able to pull it off. I like that it stands out and I love the fit of it. I’m sure it can also be worn as top in the evening and look elegant.

Highstreet Beach Look

Highstreet_beach look

I love this beach look with all highstreet pieces. It doesn’t have to be expensive to look a bit exclusive.

I really like the fringes of this beach kaftan from Mango. I’ve just been to Nice for a couple of days, where I found out that I need more beach kaftans. You can easily use one per day when you’re on vacation – especially if you spend most of the day on the beach.

I find that a summer hat is a must to protect my face against the sun. I like the Panama Straw Hats and the masculine vibe they give. You an easily find good ones in the highstreet shops or on the market.

I saw this army textured bikini with gold when I visited the Mango shop in Nice. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to try it on. I love the color and I think the texture and the gold glitter makes is interesting without making too much noise.

The Cord Sandals are also from Mango. They look a bit like the Lesley Cord Sandals from Isabel Marant that I have my eyes on.

Mrs. Cool Pants

Mrscoolpants
I’m off to Nice this evening for a long weekend with 8 of my girlfriends from high school. I  know it’s gonna such an amazing trip. We’re sharing a big apartment just a couple of streets from the beach in the center of Nice.

I wanna wear these cool pants from my favorite brand RAIINE. They work perfect and light during the day and they can also be dressed up in the evening when we’re going out for dinner.

In the sun I always wear a cool hat to protect my face from the sun. That’s the only way for me with my blonde hair and fair skin. My favorite is my Original Panama Staw Hat which I normally buy in south of Spain on our summer vacations.

Big sunglasses and moistened lips are also a must for me in the sun. I like to wear lip gloss with a little hint of color – this one from Tromborg is a typical choice. And in my opinion you can never have to many lip glosses and lipsticks. So I’ve got a big selection of different ones – in my car, in my handbag, at the bathroom, at the office etc.

I admit it, I’m addicted to my iPhone and I bring it everywhere. When I’m on nation I also use it to listen to music, podcasts and ebooks. So I try to protect in. With this black marble iPhone cover it’ll look cool at the same time.

I always wear jewelry also when I’m on vacation. I feel naked without it. I like to mix gold and silver, and I think a single big earring can make your outfit look more personal and interesting.

Summer & Beach Vibes

summervibes

Dreaming of going to the beach – and I’m definitely going next week where I’ll go to Nice for a long weekend with eight of my girlfriends.

I’ve to work hard on getting tanned legs – some times it not so bad to work hard!

I wouldn’t mind wearing this and nothing else except a lot of sunscreen and always with a high factor. I also always wear a hat with a big shade, this ombre one looks really cool. I keep my face away from the sun as much as possible – there’s no reason get more wrinkles than necessary.

The Danish Fashion brand RAIINE is definitely one of my favorite brands at the moment. I would love to wear this RAIINE Kaftan blouse to the beach, but also with a cool pair of jeans, shorts or leather pants. It also comes in a long version which is also very cool.

I’m looking for a new swimsuit and I think this one shoulder one looks very nice and it’s quite affordable. The good thing about a swimsuit is that you wear it with a pair of shorts and go to lunch on the beach without feeling too naked.

Ancient Greek makes really nice and good quality leather sandals traditionally handcrafted in Greece.I first spotted them in Saint Tropez many years ago, but now you can buy them a lot of places. I like the Alcyone leather sandals with the galdiator-like construction. They’re from Ancient Greek collaboration with Athenian jewellery house Ilias Lalaounis.

A bit of shine always good. I like to use the Face & Body Shine from Tromborg. It gives you a bit of glow and you can apply it on top or your sunscreen.

Dodo Bar Or

dodobaror_maxidress_bigpicture

I’m dreaming about this cool maxidress from Dodo Bar Or. I love the partisan print and the fringe details and I just love to wear maxi dresses in the summer. For me this maxi dress, the one piece and the tree kaftans below just oozes of summer.

We’ve already seen it a lot of partisan print in the recent years on the cashmere scarfs by German La La Berlin and on all the cool summer clothes by the Danish Fashion brand Cecilie Copenhagen, but I still think it’s very cool.

Dodobaror_onepiece

I also love this Dodo Bar Or one piece. Like the maxidress it just looks so comfortable and cool and it has some very nice details. You can wear it laid back with flat sandals or dress it up with high heels and a touch of bling in the evening.

These 3 kaftans look like the perfect beach wear. I wouldn’t mind bringing all of them on my summer vacation.
