City Chic Resort & Swim 2013

While it might not be beach weather as yet here in Melbourne that hasn't stopped me from snapping up a few pieces from City Chic's new Resort & Swim collection. I mean how could I not? The collection is amazing - full of bright  tropical print tankini's and chic retro polka-dot one pieces. As soon as I saw this cherry red tankini I knew it would look amazing against my pale skin and blonde hair. I also knew, as a small busted woman, that the halter neck style would secure my lack of bosom without the dreaded gaping around my lack of assets. City Chic's swimwear is designed for the full chested woman, which is great as I understand it can be hard to find things that fit when you have big breasts, but it does mean us smallies struggle to fill them out. Like I said that is when a halter neck really comes in handy as you can adjust the swimsuit to fit you and your bust. This is the only halter neck style this year, luckily I'm in love with the bright red colour.

In order for the swimsuit to fit my bust I did have to go down a size - which I think looks fine thanks to the ruching detail along the torso. I love the retro styling of the swimsuit and taking these photos in my cute courtyard with retro garden flamingo's really complements the style - retro fabulous!

I still love this old season City Chic black fringed kaftan. It's seen many a beach day and now it's even seen a freezing cold day in my backyard. I've seen on instagram that Sydney has been enjoying warm sunny days even in winter, well I can tell you now that Melbourne has seen close to zero sunshine, it's been so cold it's been hard to get out of bed in the morning. I am counting down the days to Spring (less than 1 week to go!) and to when I can finally rock this swimsuit at the local pool (which conveniently is just 1 block away).
I love how the black bikini bottoms look when styled with my black accessories, the cherry red tankini really pops.
