'Being Australian, I'm at my most comfortable by the sea,' Elle began her post. 'I'm so blessed to live in Miami close to the Bahamas where this photo was taken.'   

The enterpreneur said she's often asked how she keeps in shape, and that it starts 'on the inside' with an alkalising greens supplement from her own brand WelleCo. 

'I use our clean lean nourishing plant protein as a snack in between plant-based meals, and I spend as much time as I can in nature, swimming and walking.'

Make a splash like Elle in a blue bikini by Melissa Odabash

We are suffering from some serious holiday envy, with many of our favourite celebrities sunning themselves in warmer climates.

It's not all bad though, because while we sit here in our jumpers, we're able to take a look at the best bikinis and swimsuits and add them to our rapidly growing wish list.

Worn by the bombshell that is Elle Macpherson, the 'Fiji' bikini set by Melissa Odabash has shot right to the top of our must-haves.

The classic bralet style is chic and timeless and will see you through many summers for years to come. With gold hardware eyelet details on the straps and bottoms, we think that this bikini is an absolute dream.

Sadly this cobalt blue shade has sold out, but there is a super similar style called 'Vienna Celeste' in a pale blue, so click the image (right) to invest.
