A girl cannot have enough cossies - for all you international girls, that's Aussie slang for costume/swimwear, be it bikini or one-piece. I regularly pile in between three and five cossies into my suitcase, no matter the destination, and rotate them with an array of favourite cutoffs.
A current fave is new-on-the-swim-scene Australian label Midnight Swim, they've got sexy little suits all tied up. Think itsy, bitsy bottoms topped with racerback bralettes and knot-tie tanks. Check out Midnight's sun-kissed Instagram for the ultimate beach vacay inspiration.
I'm also loving KORE SWIM. Launched as a collection of modest maillots in 2011 by sisters Jessica and Nicole Tracy, the label has since grown to include a full range of beachwear. Their sleek pieces effortlessly contour the body while remaining functional for Health Birds who like to take the action from the sand to the waves. With SPF on, of course!
I was lucky enough to go to Miami to shoot these incredible shots with New York-based photographer Jay Harrison.
