    Awww, bikinis! I started looking at them on the Victoria’s Secret website two weeks ago .. it’s gonna be a long way until summer ! Haha. My personal favorite is the gray & pink one .. but I’ll probably get a twist bandeau for the summer, they’re all the rage !! Beautiful !

    I always go for ruffles, but that blue, orange, and white suit totally caught my eye. The colors not only go together in an odd way, but make me think of summer right away. Oh warm weather, where are you?!

    Great post!

    Love the bikinis, especially the ruffles as well, and the bandeau tops. Ruffles are so flattering, and so cute!

    I’m glad it’s not summer yet. It gives me time to work out so I can fit in a bikini. Then maybe I can wear that contrast pink and gray one. It’s growly lovely! 😀

    I was talking about going out surfing with a girl I met today, and we quickly threw in: “When it’s warmer, of course!” You cannot get me in the water during the winter. I cannot wait for warm weather!
