A day at the beach

Rag&Bone white t-shirt, Topshop shorts (similar), Karen Walker sunglasses, ASOS bikini Alexander Wang emile tote bag

Having spent most of Saturday packing up boxes, shifting things from one house to another and cleaning, it felt like luxury spending Sunday on a more relaxed and leisurely note. It’s not often that I get a chance to head to the beach on the weekends once the Christmas break is over, as Wellington generally seems to reserve sunny days for during the week, when most of us are at work.

I was pretty happy to have an opportunity to wear my ASOS bikini (that I had been umm-ing and ahh-ing over last year), although the water was so icy cold I could do little more than dip my toes in, with the “sinking game” out of the question. Hoping we get a few more weekends like this before summer is finally out.

    that’s such a cute bikini. i know what you mean about the water, being from south east asia i’m used to the water always being a balmy 28c but even in sydney it’s always a lot colder. i remember the beaches in wanganui and i also remember never going in the water! hope you get some better beach weather soon, can’t believe we’re midway thru summer already..

    *sob* you’re making me so jealous with photos of the beach. You look stunning in the bikini. Want to swap bodies??! We’re so deprived of sunshine that I’ve started taking vitamin D.
