It's Officially Summer!

For the first time in months, I don't mind the scorching heat.  Why?  Because I'm going on a beach trip with T and my friends this weekend! (Read about it here (part 1) and here (part 2) and here (part 3))

This is where we're going, so excited!

Finally, a break!  Now, it's officially summer.  If you read my previous post on my favorite beaches in the Philippines, you'd know how much I love the sun and the sand.  So, while doing a countdown, I'm psyching myself even more by browsing through Bluefly (a website where you can get designer stuff for less) for bikinis.

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine
Blowing through the jasmine in my mind

The first one I like is this Brette Sandler gypsy violet pebble print 'Alexa' bikini.   I'm just not too sure about the top's support capabilities but I chose it because of the mosaic-like print and the ring detail on the bandeau.  With this, you'll definitely stand out among the midst of solid colored swimwear.

The next one that I liked is another Brette Sandler creation called the 'Kelly'.  I picked it because of the bright pink color but I'm not too keen on the crochet detail found at the center of the bandeau.  It'll probably be my top pick if the designer added like a gold ring or something instead of that mesh-like thing in the middle. 

I'm not really a fan of orange but I like how this Anika Brazil bikini looks.  Well, it's not really orange-orange, more of coral actually.  And if you look closely, there are light green glass beads on the bikini top and bottom.  Great detail but that probably makes the bikini more fit for lounging than swimming ;)

Another Anika Brazil bikini caught my eye while browsing the site.  I actually have a similar one which I bought from Rustan's Department Store a while back but mine didn't have a pearlescent shell and straw beading on the bikini bottom.   I also like how they twisted the bandeau so it stands out from all the others.

Now that I'm done browsing the bikinis, I'm moving on to the cover-ups.. and then hats... and then bags...  AYAYAYAY.  So much shopping to do! Too bad there's no time to have these bikinis shipped since we're leaving in a few days.  Maybe I'll just take a look at their designer handbags and evening dresses for my night outs.  

I'm so excited for this weekend!!!  How about you?  When and where is your next summer trip?
