Black and White High Waisted Bikini

@findingfemme wears striped Bikiniboo high waisted bikini at the beach.

I have found a new love for swimwear thanks to the stumbling across the unique and original designs of Bikiniboo. I’ve always hated swimwear, the beach and shopping for bathers. Some of my most self-hating moments have involved swimwear and fitting rooms. Clothes form such a big part of my love of life, so when I wear something that isn’t meant for me it can make me feel really low. Bikiniboo’s swimwear has made me feel, for the first time since I owned a crocodile onesie at age 3, that I love swimwear.

Flower Crown Friday: A Wreath of the Seaside

Liana of Finding Femme wears a seaside flower crown with Book of Deer blouse and Lazybones skirt.

For today’s flower crown Friday, my sister and I went down to the beach and used the native grasses and bushes to weave a special flower crown. This one was gathered from the flora growing around a memorial stone for a young man that went missing when I was a child. We left the crown as a wreath, to tell the family we are still thinking of them.

Red Maxi Circle Skirt

@findingfemme wears Mokkafiveoclock red full circle maxi skirt.

If you've been reading my blog for a few months you would have seen my post about the beautiful handmade skirts from Mokkafiveoclock on Etsy. After I shared the post Monica, who runs the Etsy store, made contact with me about the wish I had expressed that she made both midi and maxi skirts. Full circle maxi skirts had been something I dreamed about, but not seen much of. Monica offered me the opportunity to work with her to collaborate on designing the pieces I would love to wear.

Blue Floral and Being an Expatriate

@findingfemme wears Dolly and Dotty blue floral dress at Ballarat Summer Sundays.

I have moved back to my hometown of Ballarat after moving interstate to Perth in Western Australia. To drive from Ballarat to Perth would cover 3,314.1km (2059.2 miles). They are on exact opposite sides of the country. I have a really strong bond with my family and my best friends so it was a pretty life changing move.

Voodoo Feathers

@findingfemme wears Voodoo Vixen embroidered feather cardigan with Chicwish skirt.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll probably already be aware that I am a sucker for an embroidered cardigan. I have a collection involving embroidered bunting, sailboats, polka dots, Scottie dogs, hummingbirds and flower garlands. Naturally, I fell in love with this decadently detailed cardigan from Voodoo Vixen.
