What we wore: To the beach

 
"Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it."
-Russell Baker

Over our new years holiday, our time spent at the beach resulted in untameable salt crazed hair and sandy
 wet bikinis. No, not quite as glamorous as those perfectly airbrushed Victoria's Secret commercials. Before 
the salt hits us, we like to at least spend that walk to the beach feeling the part. So we both put together 
these beach looks. 

Without even discussing it, we both put on a pair of shorts. Shorts are definitely an easy item for the beach 
to slide over your bikini. For the top half, baggy tops add the effortless and relaxing feel you get from visiting 
the beach. Bright bikins add another layer to your outfit and are super fun. Tara also carried all our beach 
essentials (hello Vogue) in a new moustache + neon beach bag.
 Both of our outfits were created from the depths of our small travel bags as we were limited to the few clothes
 we packed. But that's what makes a beach outfit so great; its pretty much made up of only three items.

Tara:
top - asos
shorts - made by me
moustache beach bag, bikini - garage
sunglasses - Molly N

Ellen:

top - glassons
bikini - asos
sunglasses c/o choies
shorts - Abercrombie & fitch


We are back home now, and as frustrating it is to be still finding sand in things, we very much miss the relaxing 
summer time that is the annual beach holiday *dramatic music plays as we get lost on memories*

More photos coming soon!
