First Day of Summer | Black & White Bikini

Happy Summer!!! Today is the first day of summer and I’m sooo excited for what this season will bring! As much as I love colorful swimwear, there is nothing like a great black and white bikini. A black and white bikini is an easy neutral for many to wear without being too bland with a monochromatic bikini that only features one hue. I was drawn to this bikini because of its pattern. The zebra print mixed with the polka dots had me hooked. I knew I couldn’t leave Victoria’s Secret without it.

Unable to find the matching bikini bottom in my size, I decided to pair it with a black and white strappy bikini bottom that is also from Victoria’s Secret. This bottom is an oldie but goodie but it fits right in as it’s the same color scheme.

I couldn’t wear all this black and white without pulling out my black and white straw hat that I’ve been wanting to wear for a while now. It was so hard to fit over my head filled with braids (as if having a big head wasn’t enough lol) but I somehow made it fit.

  1. That bikini is adorable. I would be so concerned that a white bikini bottom would show something when it got wet. Hopefully that’s not the case.

    1. Nope it was all good! 🙂

  2. You look stunning! I LOVE that bikini. It’s so pretty!

  7. This bikini is so fun and cute! I have never come across a top like that, and I love it! Black and white are such classic colors, there’s no way to go wrong with them! I usually go for either both solid tops and bottoms, or a printed top with a solid bottom.

    1. Thank you! I usually prefer printed all the way.

  8. What a cute bikini! Love the hat as well!

  9. Comfort Ayoade

    That bikini top and bottom look ridiculously beautiful on you. Animal print and polka dots together is unusual. Enjoy yourself Oyin, God bless you. Amen.

  14. Youlook amazing! I love the hat with the bathingsuit!!!

  15. That bikini really suits you!! Brave to go white on the bottom though! You’ll have to do a review on how it handles water!

    1. Thank you so much. It handles water fine. I honestly didn’t think wearing white bottoms in the water was ever something to be apprehensive about because I haven’t had any issues. Victoria’s Secrets bikinis are pretty thick so no issues here.

  16. Black and white is so stylish and chic! It’s classic and never goes out of style. I love your hat!!

    Correction. Please delete my other comment. Thank you!
    The bikini set looks terrific on you. Pairing it with your beautiful floppy hat was a smart and stylish move. 🙂

    your choice here is good, so long you are comfortable and fine with it, that goes a long way to say we are better with this or that. good pick.

    1. Definitely does! Thank you so much.

  20. Love the suit. Just adorable and surely not the same old, same old.

    1. Swimsuits are definitely changing up nowadays!

  21. I agree that a black and white bikini or swimsuit is very good everyone since it is neutral. That one you are wearing is cute! Happy first day of summer!

  22. Such a cute bikini and you look amazing in it. I guess the first day of summer calls for swimsuits as I just wore one on my blog too. Love the hate and all the black and white details.

  23. Kathy

    That is a very nice bikini. I would definitely wear one like that. I just love the bottoms too. It looks great on you!

  24. Kiwi

    First of all I love the red hair. You look really confident in your swimsuit and that is what makes any beach experience better.

    1. Thank you. Confidence makes life feel better LOL

  25. Victoria Heckstall

    I noticed your gorgeous red hair and it is perfrct with your hat and bikini at the same time.

  26. This is such a cute bikini! I like how the neckline is a bit different and the scrappy sides on the bottoms are fun

  27. Annemarie LeBlanc

    You rocked that bikini! You look nice and very well toned. I love the full head of red hair too.

    1. Thank you. I appreciate it!

  28. love the look you created! hat and suit! looks like you’re ready for the summer swim weather! I’m a sucker for Victoria Secret, they always seem to have something in that store I can’t walk away from (that’s why I don’t go in the store unless I have the extra money for it!) ha!

    1. LOL Victoria Secret will get you! Smh!

  33. Ahh Summer has FINALLY arrived in the PNW too! It took a few days after the solstice, and it will probably dip soon..but it’s here NOW and that’s what counts. Hooray! Those bottoms are TOO cute. And I love mixing and matching too so I’m totally with you. Black and white is THE way to go. I’m with you all the way. Especially with that gorgeous red hair. You look GREAT!

  34. Misty Nelson Dawn

    What a great outfit for summer and it looks good on you. I’m in love with that top.

  35. Hello, summer. I haven’t put on a swimsuit yet but I’m looking forward to doing so.

  36. I absolutely love that suit, but I don’t think that it would look good on me at all. I have too much baby weight that I gained. 🙁
    I wish that I could pull it off!

    1. No worries. You can wear a one piece. There’s a swimwear style for all body types. Let me know if you need help finding any. No need to wear a 2 piece if you’re not comfortable in it.

  37. this bikini is beautiful and looks awesome on you

    1. Thank you so very much!
