When it comes to blog inspo, it doesn’t get much more fab than travel blogging. Those jet setters aren’t just trailblazing trends – they’re blazing trails at 30,000 feet, racking up air miles and price tags, and packing wanderlust like an expertly curated suitcase. Beach-dwelling for your career ain't easy, but we know one chica who does it like a pro. Meet Anouska.
If there’s one thing you can trust a wandering fashionista like Anouska with, it’s swimwear picks. This season, Anouska nailed it with our white, draped-front swimsuit AND our scalloped-edge bikini – giving us a serious case of swimwear envy. If you’re scoping out some pool-ready glamour (oh hey there, summer vacay...!), we have tips and tricks from the girl herself to point you in the right direction.
What made you go for this white swimsuit?
I'm a massive swimsuit fan - when I first set eyes on this one, I knew I had to have it. It's simple, classy, and I just love the amazing cut.
What 5 beach bag items can't you live without?
Sunscreen, oversized shades, lip balm, earphones, my camera and my iPhone. All I ever need!
What are your top beach beauty tips?
Keep skin, body, and lips hydrated by drinking lots of water. Apply sunscreen every time you come out of the water. I also have a tip for cute, "beachy" waves - twist damp hair into two little buns, and take them out before your hair's totally dry. Voilà!
What are your top swimsuit tips?
It all depends on the look you're going for. I think fit's the most important thing - don't wear anything too big or too small! For color, I think darker skin looks fantastic in deep blues, bright reds and whites, and paler skin looks beautiful in yellow and pastels.
Bikini top $6, bikini bottoms $7
What made you go for our black bikini?
When it comes to bikinis you can never go wrong keeping it simple - but then again a beautiful back detail is always a good thing! I knew this one would look so great on the beach, and would also be a nice touch under a tank top.
And when you’ve successfully found the swimsuit of your dreams, it's time to have fun with all the little extras! Anouska’s expert tips are a great place to start - and don't forget to check out our Beach Bag Checklist, vacay jewelry roundup, and sunglasses shout-out below.
