Luckily, there are a million different ways to have a great time out in the sun, from sipping cocktails under a shady parasol to playing games and swimming in the sea. One of the beaches I love to go to is Torquay in Victoria, which is about twenty minutes away from Geelong (and if you’re from Melbourne, its about 70 minutes away). Torquay has it all!. Home to the world famous Bells Beach and the birth place of iconic surf brands, Torquay is the surfing capital of Australia and it’s the official start of the gorgeous Great Ocean Road. If you can , try to come down to Torquay and check it out for yourself. You will love it!

When I’m down at the beach, I usually like to have a walk around the local area, checking some of the stores and surf shops, and even sit down for a quick meal and/or a coffee, before I make my way down to the sandy beach and assume my rest of the day filled with relaxation of lying down, walking along the beach and even, splashing about in the sea. Don’t forget this summer to be sun smart and apply the 50+ sun cream!

The whole outfit that I’m wearing is ready to go from day to evening, with the Mannesa Aztec Print Fringed Swimsuit which has a very Miami feel about it. The swimsuit is modest but extremely sexy in an understated way without it being too in your face. And ladies, I can tell you its very comfortable, no unfortunate wedgies at all and the tassles just give you that ‘showgirl’ feeling that I fell in love with. I combined the swimsuit with the gorgeous Emma Fringed Beach KimonoLaura Aviator Sunglasses, and the colour of the moment, my favourite (or should that be, obsession) rose gold in the Rosie Peeptoe Two Part Sandals,. Adding to that as well the must have Boutique Amber Oversized Floppy Hat, giving it a 70’s style vibe glamour, along with the Mara Double Thigh High Skirt – all of this together taking it from a simple stylish swimsuit from day to a stylish sexy evening outfit. Simple and perfect.

Remember, not only can you wear the popular traditional beach and surf wear brands to the beach, but make sure to check out BooHoo too for their quality and affordable swimwear range too. Oh! And don’t forget to also check out their sandals  & accessories to go along with your new swimwear. 24/7 fabulousness!
