A Big Ole Swimwear Lookbook

The Little Magpie Swimwear Lookbook
Oh hello there! My last swimwear lookbook had some really lovely, lovely feedback and seemed to go down quite well (even despite my hungry bum) so I thought I'd bring another one your way today to show some of my favourite swimwear bits that are on the interweb at the moment! Without further ado, I bring you look one.

NEW LOOK gold ring swimsuit (also available in white)

This one is a little miracle worker, I'm not sure how, but by some magical witchcraft it gives your nungas a real boost without actually having any underwire or anything built in. My kind of magic. Plus the little ring detail makes it stand out a bit from your usual black swimsuit!

NEW LOOK white mesh bikini (also available in black)

I do like this one, but in contrast with the other one it's one that's maybe best left to those with smaller boobies (I've just remembered as I typed that that my Gran used to call boobs chicklets and I can't stop laughing) - as pretty as it is, there's absolutely zero support. The polka dot mesh detail and whiteness of it all is very lovely though.

KINNI crochet bikini via Everything But Water

A Kiini has been on my wishlist for so long so I'm a very (very) happy bunny to finally have one in my collection. They are at the higher end of the price bracket, but they're so well made as well as being extremely pretty to look at. Just look at all those lovely colours.

NEW LOOK black mesh off-shoulder swimsuit (also available here)

This one I love. It feels so retro and the mesh panels down the side add a little bit of sass to it as well it making it that extra bit more flattering. Plus it's always nice to get a bit of sun on the ole shoulders.

REVOLVE high waisted bikini

High-waisted bikinis I find tricky. Because I have a larger touche, they often make me look like I'm wearing a big nappy (sexy). This one, however, is very flattering and is in a bit more of an unusual colour too which is always nice. As you can see from the photos, the pants do ruche up a little if you stand with your legs crossed... so try remember that if you need the toilet.

NEW LOOK off shoulder floral bikini (swimsuit version available here)

Another off the shoulder number from New Look, which you might already have seen over on my instagram! I love how girly it is, which normally isn't my thing but in this case it gets a thumbs up.

NEW LOOK mesh detail white bikini

Oh my god. I am so sorry about that arm tag hanging out, it's pushing me closer to a fit of rage every time I see it. Anyway, if you can manage to look past that then you'll see that what lies behind is actually a very beautiful bikini. It's another quite feminine one with the mesh polka dot detail and is actually the sister to the swimsuit you saw right back at the start of the post. Sadly I think it might just be sold out online (I'm so sorry) but it's possibly still available in store!

And that, my friends, brings us to the end of the lookbook. I'll leave you with some very, very sexy bloopers that show the very glamorous reality of shooting it. That's right, a large rock is my dressing room. Thank you and goodnight.

A Seaside Lookbook

The Little Magpie Topshop Lookbook
Hello my friends! Today's post brings to you a little mini lookbook from a recent trip to Brighton. I had this whole wonderful seaside lookbook planned that was going to have lots of looks, sea, sun candyfloss, me riding seagulls... but then I got glutened the night before and it all went to shit. Literally. I don't know about any of you other gluten intolerant-ers, but after I get a little bit glutened my face going really swollen, like it's filled with water. A human water balloon if you will. Anyway, I persevered for a little and then saw some of the swollen, gluten-y photos back and just felt a bit sad and called time out. However, here are the best of a bad bunch, the clothes were all wonderful so I don't want to do them a disservice by not posting any photos. Just... don't look too closely at my face.

This was very possibly my favourite of the three looks (I'm sure I'll have changed my mind by the next look don't worry). The jumpsuit is SO comfortable to wear and I really enjoy the wide legged action and bandeau top. I went for some very straw-y accessories in the form of both the hat and bag. As soon as I saw the pom poms on the bag I couldn't say no.

TOPSHOP cherry print two piece (sold out, I'm so sorry)

I feel so bad putting this look up with it not being on sale anymore, it sold out so quickly! It's such a lovely wee set though, and really good for mix and matching. Speaking of, you'll see the top in a post coming your way very soon.

I had to get at least one midi dress in there, didn't I? It's such a flattering little number and the rainbow palette is very, very lovely to look at.
