How to wear a swimsuit every day!

Ok, so in case I haven't gone on about this enough, IT IS REALLY HOT AT THE MOMENT!!!111!!!1! With that in mind, the timing of this little challenge that Missguided set me couldn't be more apt - I had to choose a bodysuit from the super fun Miami Heat bodysuit edit, and style it up so it would be suitable for everyday wear. 
I opted for this magical dream catcher bodysuit, and paired it with an equally dreamy white lace maxi kimono, also from Missguided. The bodysuit is backless so is perfect for hot weather, but it also has a little padding in the front which is great for practicality reasons - I didn't feel at all uncomfortable going braless. As you can see in some of my photos, the kimono really is floor-sweeping length and so unfortunately living in a city means that the bottom few inches got very dirty very quickly, however I don't mind too much and I think it is such a great piece to give a simple summery outfit the wow factor. 
I continued the boho-ish vibe with a fringed bag and this really cool necklace from Chelsea Doll, and chose a simple pair of black denim shorts for my bottom half. What do you think? Would you style your swimwear up for everyday summer wear?
