beachwear inspiration- knits








(1. Billabong bikini- worn throughout, black crochet dress, Giorgio Armani vtg sunnies, Stolen Girlfriends club rings- worn throughout 2. Brown crochet crop top, Stolen Girlfriends Club cable knit shorts, Ksubi necklace, Pamela Love ring 3. White knit singlet dress, Gail Sorronda necklace)

An Aussie Summer is my favourite time of the year and sadly Autumn/Winter is slowly creeping up SOOO before it doesn't start snowing here in Brisbane, I wanted to share some beach inspired outfits- featuring knits. Light enough to frolic in and warm enough for when the sun goes down in the afternoon and the breeze picks up.

Thanks to the lovely ladies at 2threads.com and Billabong for sponsoring this post.

  5. WOW!! Lovely photos! I really love the last two photos & how you paired up the Gail Sorronda necklaces that are the same color as the white knit singlet dress, simply beautiful!!

    Crochet & Knit swim-wears are unique and sensual *Double head-turn* :D Hhahhaa

  6. Love every single outfit in this post.
    I'm hanging to find a beautiful crochet dress like your black one.. Though I doubt I'd get much use of it. Our autumn/winter down this way seems to be creeping up a lot quicker than I'd hoped.

  7. This post is impeccable, I have never associated knits with swimwear in my life, and yet it works so brilliantly. I'm inspired!
