we won't run, we won't run.

For the past few weeks all I have wanted to do is get all cozy in my winter layers, rug up and drink hot tea, because the weather has been nothing but drab. However, the weather over the long weekend had other plans for how I dressed. It was such amazing weather!! This is one of the things I picked up from the markets yesterday. HOW RAD ARE MY NEW VINTAGE SWIMMERS? At only $10 - I would have been one silly girl not to buy them.

The cut is super cute. A little bit higher than my other swimmers and I think I'll be prone to wedgies when I wear them but all that is forgiven as I love the little fine string detailing on the side and the colourful pattern (which sort of looks like something my five year old niece would paint).

I was worried taking photos in a bikini on a beach would end up looking a little too cliched/ mens magazine-ish. But, thank god I was in good hands and they turned out awesome (thanks to J). It was kind of a last minute decision to hop in the car and shoot these, but I am so glad we did as the sunset was stunning. One of the best I have seen in a long time!

So as my brain has switched into winter mode, hopefully summer had finally done it's dash because I really want to continue to rug up and sip on hot tea. I think I am finally ready to pack my denim cut offs away and shop for some winter goods.
