Lookbook- Swan Goals

DSC_0823

Summer time and the living is oh so easy! Chilling by the pool with friends, reading a good book and catching those sun rays(provided you have put on SPF before of course) is all what summer is about. We have just over a month left of summer in South Africa and I am trying to make the most of it while I can. I do not like the cold weather AT ALL, and I don’t actually know what I am going to do with myself this year, now that I can’t run away to Russian during July, our coldest month here. But let’s deal with that a little later, as today is all about this fun pool look!

This year there was a huge obsession with all kinds of cool pool floats, and I myself got a very cute doughnut shaped one (check it out on my Insta). This pool swan however takes the cake and I wish I could say that such beauty is mine! I visited my friends Chicars sisters house which we also showed over here, and of course she would have something as cool as this swan. I got my best bikini wear on, put on some red lipstick and saw a lookbook opportunity waiting!

This might sound silly to some, but in the past few months I have really been struggling with my weight. Its not about how much I weigh per se, but it’s all about how you feel in your own body, and lately, I have not been feeling comfortable in it. I am making steps to feel more comfortable in it by going to the gym and eating more healthy, but if you are like me, then this gorgeous Ted Baker black cover-up is perfect! It’s actually very light and sheer, but it gives you that little bit of cover on the beach or at the pool, and I think it’s quite sexy! Of course you cant actually swim in it, that’s why I have a gorgeous floral Ted Baker swimsuit underneath!

While we were having fun taking these photos, I wanted to add some drama to the look (as if a giant swan wasn’t enough) with red lipstick, loose curls, retro shades and a giant sun hat! When I saw this hat at H&M it reminded me of Samantha Jones’ hat from Sex and the City, and I had to have it! It’s perfect to shield yourself from the sun but yes, it’s a little dramatic and big!

    I think my heart broke a little when I saw that the swans sold out so quickly on Superbalist – so cute and the perfect photo prop 🙂 Good luck with gym – we’re in the same boat (or float) in that regard!
