Outfit Post: Fifties Fiesta

Fifties Style, Rockabilly, Swimsuit

It feels slightly strange to be posting these while I’m snuggled on the sofa in my cardi’ with my hottie, but for those going on a ‘winter sun’ holiday they might give you some ideas. I really wanted to get one of these gorgeous swimsuits from ModCloth but, with my impending dive into freelance mere weeks away, I decided I needed to be more careful with my money so I opted for this fifties style swimsuit from George at ASDA. I’ve always thought that their underwear fit my shape really well for the price and this costume was no exception, so I wasn’t too disappointed I chose the cheaper option.

Fifties, Rockabilly Style Swimsuit

I’m not a big swimwear fan – I don’t like beach holidays and I spend the entire time feeling very self conscious so it’s been rather an exercise in confidence to firstly pose for these photos by the pool (in front of people, argh!) and then actually publish them for all you lovely folk to see. Opting for this Rockabilly style is a great way to dress for the beach while still feeling fun instead of exposed. It’s super easy; just go for polka dot or gingham check patterns and a mismatch of black, red, blue and white. Cherry and apple prints work well too! Of course I don’t recommend the jewellery for sunbathing if you want to avoid a weird tan ;) but it’s fine for going out for breakfast!

    Bam! Looking gorgeous Sophie! I always feel a bit guilty when I buy clothes from the George line, but I can’t find bras (even £70 fancy schmancy ones) elsewhere that are as comfortable. And that swimsuit looks great. It wouldn’t be out of place as a top with a wrap-around skirt!

    Lovely! I love the red shoes, they really add a fantastic pop of colour. X Jane

    Thanks so much Anna :)

    I was a bit iffy about posting this after the whole ‘mental patient costume’ debacle, but I bought the costume before then. Is there another reason I should be considering not endorsing George? :/ I actually used to manage the lingerie department at my local George!

    And yes, I would totally wear this next summer as a top! So versatile :)

    Thanks Jane :)
