Well, beachwear, it is of course a summer theme that we really can’t do without. And now I also know that by beachwear you can mean a lot of outfits that are more covered than a bikini or bathing suit. But for me, beachwear really is that. And if you say a, you must also say b. And I had hoped that a lot of other ladies would follow me, and of course my wonderful co-host Shelbee. So it turned into a bikini! The ultimate beachwear, right?
Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!
What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?
It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!
So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Beachwear!

In the summer of 2020, I relished my circumstances of living near the beach during the initial COVID lockdown. It was during this time that I named this often worn look “beachcomber chic”. However, since I didn’t share it on TikTok, it unfortunately didn’t become a thing like Coastal Grandmother. Now I know better 😉. I’ve had these camo capri-length cargo pants for years and they’re perfect for strolling on the beach

Here is our resort wear. Who doesn’t love it when we are all matching, right??
These dresses would definitely be considered good buys because I found so many options of how to wear a tiered dress, and now it seems so versatile.
This is a dress that I brought to Cancun and I loved it so much that I bought it in another color!! It folds up really small and doesn’t wrinkle in the suitcase. There’s spandex / stretch in the dress, too. I NEVER wear 100% cotton!!
I am not going to the beach very often, only in England. So I only wear a bikini at home in the garden and in my flatable swimming pool. That’s why it doesn’t have to be expensive for me. I bought this one for €7 and it’s the best bikini I’ve had in years. An eyelet one, and of course black! On Shelbee’s blog I am wearing a older one!
September’s theme will be: Eyelet!
