Whilst New York Fashion Week has been and gone (I hope you caught my series for Spring Summer 2015, if not scroll down after this post!) I’ve been having a wonderful break in The Canary Islands. I’m flying home this weekend, and before London Fashion Week kicks off I wanted to post the second of my beach outfits from the vacation (I have mostly been living in swimsuits and bikinis, which has considerably lightened my suitcase – good news for me since I am usually the one bemoaning the extra kilograms of luggage charges at the airport).
I think it is increasingly acceptable, in fact encouraged these days, to mix ‘high’ and ‘low’ fashion. My new rose gold Tom Ford Marko Aviators have been a great asset this trip. Since the lenses are polarized, they eliminate reflections and glare (great if you are spending a lot of time near the sea, or perhaps on a boat). They also offer some additional protection from the harmful UV rays, not to mention they look pretty damn chic.
The shiny rose gold frames really stood out when I wore the aviators with my black cross front wrap halter bikini from ASOS. As bikinis go this is a great sporty style though probably for smaller bust sizes only – I find the halter neck style really flattering for my shape (a swimsuit version also exists, click HERE.) A Bond Girl moment for me on my trip! To quote the memorable scene from Dr No. where Ursula Andress (Honey Ryder) emerged from the sea in her bikini: ’Honey: Are you looking for shells?; 007: No, I’m just looking.’
