Swimming with Dolphins

Swimwear - Modcloth, get it here!
Sunglasses - Asos
These photos were taken a week ago now, on a gorgeous warm day. I woke up early and saw the most beautiful sunrise and watched the sea mist roll in from the ocean. The day before we had seen dolphins in the surf, however, I could not have been more surprised when four of them joined us in the water! They swam five meters away from us and made adorable noises as they went by.

For the holiday I packed both of my Esther Williams bikinis, including this cherry print one I blogged about earlier this year. I love both of my Esther Williams bikinis so much and they get so much wear that I must get another one soon. Something that I especially adore is that their sizing is consistent - which is very important when ordering swimwear online, for me in particular since I am all the way in Australia.

The best thing about these bikinis is that the sizing is extremely Australian friendly! I am an Australian size eight and sized up to the US size eight - it's a perfect fit. So something to keep in mind if you're in Australia and are thinking of ordering one - order your Australian size and the fit should be spot on!


  1. You look simply stunning in these pictures, like an old movie star! x

  2. Don't you look glamorous, you pin up!

  3. That sounds like such a surreal, blessedly beautiful experience! Like many, I've always dreamed of swimming with dolphins. They're such incredibly majestic, intelligent, sensitive animals that I cannot help but feel a strong kinship with. You are so very lucky to have had them as your swimming companions that day, honey (I'm sure they thought your bathing suit was every bit as timelessly gorgeous as I do!).

  6. Hello Harlow Darling! Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting. :) Like your blog, your style is so cute! I'm sort of the same way, I tend to veer towards repro fashion.
