Sicily, American Apparel, Bikini, Ray Ban,Sicily, American Apparel, Bikini, Ray Ban  Bikini bottoms: American Apparel; Bikini Top: Gift

These photos were taken in Sicily at an amazingly beautiful place called Alcantara Gorge, a small natural spring in the mountains where the water is -11°C. I’m wearing my favourite bikini of the summer, I really struggled finding a high waisted bikini but I ended up getting these bottoms from American Apparel and using an old bikini top of a friends. However, if I had ridiculous amount of money to spend on bikini’s I would have invested in one of the following:

What was you favourite bikini designs of the summer?

As soon as I saw it I knew it was aa. Lol. Looks lovely on you :)

I'd take that chloe one in a heartbeat!! I did manage to find a nice black one that's sort of similar, but it's not *quite* the same now is it? hehe

The surroundings look amazing!! xx

Well thank goddess you stopped by because I'm totally in love with the look of your blog! And these photos.. that place is beyond gorgeous :D

AND Your bikini is super cute! I like a lot of different bikini styles but one I'm missing and totally craving and is like a traditional trashed-up string bikini... small and neon. Hey the 90s are rising again!

Yes I was "missing" for a while... school, a summer internship and academic research got in the way. But I'm back and happy to meet you :)

Love anything high-waisted, AA had some really great styles this year! As it's hard for me to get the size right, I was coveting a retro polka dotted asos number but have given up on any more beaches for this year. Can't believe your survived the freezing temperatures in that water!
