Where to rock your swimwear during a staycation!
Buy it, wear it, own it!
The last month of #OYS is all about wearing your swimwear with confidence. In order to #BeFearless we should all be learning how to wear our favourite one-piece or bikini in whatever location we feel like. Whether you’re driving to your local seaside or swimming in your local outdoor lido, here are some places you can rock your bikini during a summer staycation.
An obvious spot to whip out your summer swimwear. The beach is a top class spot to soak in some rays (but don’t forget SPF)! If you’re feeling brave enough you can also take a dip in the sea and stage a sunset photoshoot with your bffs
The swimming pool
Many may think that no holidays abroad means no dip in the cool blue water of a hotel/villa swimming pool. Wrong! Many cities are opening up outdoor lido pools for swimming and temporary beaches are being put up in parks. As long as we adhere to their specific social-distancing measures, there’s no reason why a trip to the pool has to be crossed off your summer to-do list
If you’re lucky enough to have a bestie or family member with a mega hot tub, then a luxury evening with some party food and good tunes should definitely be on the cards. Or alternatively, a hot tub is the perfect place to wind down and relax after a stressful day at work and showing off your fave summer swimwear bits couldn’t be easier as you sit amongst the bubbles
Your back garden
Our back gardens have become a haven during lockdown and that doesn’t have to stop just because we’re allowed in public places now. There’s no better place to catch some rays than the back lawn and if you set up a towel, speaker and some healthy snacks, you can create your very own abroad sunbathing spot from your own home. If you’re feeling extra maybe even order a sun lounger from amazon and truly kickback in your bikini.
Our insta feeds are perhaps lacking the usual summer bikini shots, but a staycation doesn’t mean no snaps. In fact it should mean quite the opposite. Grab your phone or a camera, head to your local insta-worthy spot with your besties and take some summer pics to share. You could make a whole day of your fun photoshoot with friends and experiment with lighting and photography techniques.
So there you have it, Elissa and Stef have provided you with some more top tips for summer. Your bikini body can still have its time to shine and with the launch of the Bold one piece on our website, now is the perfect time to indulge in swimwear and flaunt it during your staycation!
