Surfs Up!

Wearing a tropical print cropped rashguard is probably about as close to surfing as I’ll get! I’m someone who couldn’t tell the fin from the deck and wouldn’t be seen out for a paddle in the sea, let alone adopting theat cool balancing pose a top a wave (as much as I really wish I could of course.) This doesn’t however, stop me from pinching a bit of surfer style and dropping it into my every day wardrobe.

Since seeing a model stalking a beach in bikini bottoms and a zip up crop top in some style magazine, I’ve been keeping a beady eye open for my own rashguard. I’m definitely one for adding a spot of sport into a look and this one from Beach Cafe does the job just nicely. It may have been the hottest day of the year so far when I shot this, but I coped fairly well even in long sleeves. Hey, if it gets too hot to handle this summer, there’s always a bikini-baring unzipping option!

    You look Fab Lucy, and coping with looking good in the summer more than my sweaty t-shirts. Not cool. I’m keen on the mint green.

    I actually own a rash vest somewhere. I once attempted surfing on holiday in Cornwall and it was a necessary purchase haha. It’s not really as wearable as yours though, you can rock anything!

      Aah Thanks Winnie! Yeah I imagine they’re brilliant to wear in the sea! Pity I’m not near the coast nor have an appetite for swimming in the sea! oops hehe
