Audrey's Day Out

La mer

Ever heard of the song ‘La mer’ by Charles Trenet? It paints a picture of the sea wrapping itself around the shore and the water dancing along  under the sun, shimmering with glitters of silver.

The sea to me is a place full of memories from my childhood. Crashing waves, building sandcastles, eating popsicles by the sea with wet hair and sand messaging my feet. The smell of the gentle salt spray that reminds me of all things hot and all things summer.

I came across a brand of beach wear as I was looking for my new swimsuit, and I came across this wonderful 50’s inspired bikini, by We Are Handsome. So I looked into this brand further, and it turns out they have a wonderful collection of swimwear and apparel with a focus on colourful graphic prints. What’s more is that their swimwear is designed and made in Australia. What’s not to love?
