Hello Swimwear and Lingerie Enthusiasts.

Did every one enjoy their long weekend? Were you able to grab yourself lots of rest and relaxation or did you use the time to catch up on everything cluttering up your to do list?

I had a marvelous weekend! Slept in, enjoyed some family time, enjoyed some ‘me’ time… add in the massive amounts of chocolate I consumed and I’m sure you can understand why my weekend was just perfect.

Actually, the sheer amount of chocolate and jellies that I consumed kinda helped me to choose my “Must-Have Monday” item for today’s post. I was thinking I wanted something super comfortable, highly luxurious, but also not too revealing or body conscious.

Et voila, I found it! May I direct your attention to the following picture? A 100% silk, handmade teddy from Ayton Gasson.

Isn’t it divine?

It’s from Ayton’s Elizabeth collection of handmade lingerie. It comes in both plum and olive. I have hazel eyes so either would work well with my colouring, but I adore the olive tone.

The description of the teddy on her site is perfect and just drips with decadence and those luxurious touches that can only come from handmade lingerie;

“Our signature silk teddy is perfect for bringing vintage glamour to your lingerie wardrobe. The silk sits beautifully next to the skin and with gorgeous Nottingham lace ruffles along the cups this teddy oozes feminine sensuality. This teddy comes in a flattering olive green, in sizes small, medium and large.”

Perfect for my slightly chocolatey-increased figure wouldn’t you agree?

Oh, wait, have I introduced you to Ayton Gasson yet? Shoot, sorry, I got a bit carried away in my “Must-Covet Monday” way… sorry about that. Allow me to introduce you then; Swimwear and Lingerie Folks meet Ayton, Ayton, these are my dear friends.

“Ayten Gasson creates exquisite confections of luxurious pure silk lingerie, trimmed with vintage Nottingham lace, all hand-made in the UK.”

“Silk knickers, tap pants, teddies, bras and bralets are accompanied by kimono tops, nightwear and eye masks. Both lingerie and sleepwear, Ayten’s garments blur the traditional boundaries between underwear and outerwear, with a style so beautiful and fluid, you will want to let people see them!”

Now that you are on a first name basis, take a moment and check out all of her lovely collections.

{Pssst, she’s also having a sale!….just thought I would put that out there}

Have a great Monday everyone! Wish me luck in avoiding the rest of the chocolate hanging around here…. {I can hear it calling me… }
