Destination: Island Hopping, Thailand
I’m a bit of a hippy at heart and absolutely love the sun. My favourite holiday destination is Thailand – the weather, the scenery, the people and the food are some of the best in the world. I was there in April and would love to go back in the Autumn.
This is my designer bikini pick of the season, a gorgeous, peacock print bikini from Vix. The purple pattern has an ethnic vibe with a bandeau top which I love and a minimal brief - ideal for working on that tan and sipping cocktails on the beach.
Destination: Lake Garda, Italy
I really enjoy yoga, so I’m heading to Lake Garda in Italy for a spot of well earned relaxation and a few long yoga classes. I like to chill out, relax and take life at my own pace. I love Italian food as it’s vegetarian friendly and I’m looking forward to pasta, cheese, veggies, pesto, mmm more cheese!
Swimming in the lake has to be one of my holiday highlights so I’ve have opted for this beautiful Janzten swimsuit, the retro cut is uber flattering and swimsuits are having a moment this year, plus the lake is just a bit too cold for a bare tum!
Destination: Paris, France
I tend to prefer city breaks in the summer, you get to see, taste and experience another countries culture by day and still have an amazing night out in the evening. Being a bonafide Francophile, Paris is my favourite European destination, the architecture, the food, the art, the wine; say no more!! I love it!
Now I know Paris isn’t home to a beach, but I still try to look my best at the hotel pool.
I’ve opted for these blue striped swim shorts from Ralph Lauren. Cool, classic and ever so slightly nautical, they’re perfect for keeping up appearances in the 4th arrondisement!
Destination: Barcelona, Spain
I LOVE Barcelona and in particular, the Sonar festival. The 3 day event is held every June attracting an international audience of over 80,000 people.Split into day and night events, Sonar by Day is centrally located in the Museum of Contemporary Art, a short walk from Plaza Cataluña, the main square in Barcelona. The day has a slower pace and is great for listening to the various styles of music on offer and taking in the warm June sun. I’m usually relaxing in a bikini top for the day, and one of the best things about Barcelona, is as well as being a city, it has a great beach.
I went for this Floral bikini from Baku. I love the retro style print, its versatile enough to wear to the festival to my 2nd favourite thing about Barcelona; the BEACH!! l
Destination: Wimbledon, UK
For me, there are two weeks in June when Summer officially arrives and it happens to involve Sue Barker!
Nothing quite beats crisp whites, succulent strawberries, refreshing pimms and a good old tennis match. That’s why I have to make my way to SW19 for the annual Wimbledon Championships.
The All England Club can only be described as a magical place, it is the oldest tennis tournament in the world and generally considered the most prestigious. It attracts thousands of visitors each year, of all ages and from all corners of the world. Ranging from die-hard fans hoping for an elusive Rafa signature on their T-shirts to city workers escaping the commute home for a balmy evening on Henman Hill, catching the last few hours play.
An English summer just wouldn’t be complete without Wimbledon and should there not be such a strict dress code, this Halter Bikini set from Lea would be the perfect ensemble. Chic, stylish and a guaranteed Game, Set and Match!
