Here we are barely a few weeks into official winter and I’m already having summertime fantasies. It has been unusually frigid on the island these past few months and I’ve been really feeling the need for some heat. Alas I have no immediate plans to travel to a tropical locale, so the next best thing is to visualize baby! So I started my visualization process on the Billabong website. A summer wonderland of beachy clothes and bikinis. Luckily for me (and possibly you) they are having one of their semi-annual sales at the mo, and all this visualizing might turn into an actual package arriving to my door (or yours)!
Here are a few of my favourite picks from the site. Some of them are hugely marked down and if you act quick you might be able to scoop up a bargain!
I love, love, love Billabong bikinis! They have been may absolute fave for a few years now, especially these high-neck and crop-top style ones. If you’re active in the water this style is perfect. No more worrying about falling out of your top and the back closures take all the weight off your neck. 1. Meshin’ With You Crop Cami Bikini Top, (sale) 2. Lima Nights Tank Bikini Top, (sale) 3. Maldive Stripe High Neck Bikini Top (sale) 4. Island Time High Neck Top (reversible)
Tons of sandals on the site are on sale right now. If I can find my size I will most definitely snag a pair! Also I couldn’t resist these stitched beach bags. 1. Around The Sun Sandals (in multiple colours), 2. Beach Brigade Sandals (sale and in multiple colours), 3. Golden Tidez Sandals (sale and in 1 other colour), 4. Wild Waves Sandals (sale), 5. Bonfire Beachin’ Backpack, 6. Feeling Free Crossbody Bag (sale).
I couldn’t stop at one collage of bikinis! There are just so many to choose from and as the year progresses you better believe I’ll be checking out their new releases! 1. Wild One Banded Triangle Top, I’m not usually one for animal print, but I love this reversible style. 2. Tribe Time High Neck Top, one of my favourites from the whole line-up. 3. Sol Searcher Strappy Cami, this one is also available in multiple colours. 4. Meshin’ With You Crop Cami (sale), 5. Hippie Hooray High Crochet Bikini Top.
Next, some prints that are all to-and-from-the-beach friendly and an awesome printed circle towel! 1. Allegra Kimono Dress, this dress can be worn open as a flowy beach cover-up or as shown for whatever you fancy. 2. Picture Perfect Romper, 3. Full Circle Towel, its expensive for a towel but I love it. 4. Moon Dancer Kimono, 5. Voyager Maxi Printed Dress (sale) I’m taking advantage of the sale on this maxi dress, note the sandals (wink).
My final collage of mixing and matching! 1. Sol Searcher Back Tie Rashguard (sale), 2. Sol Searcher 2 inch Board shorts (sale). I thought these two together would make a nice option for something a little more covered up. Think paddle boarding or kayaking on the lake. 3. Aloha Forever Stoked Hat, just cause you’re stoked it’s summer! 4. Great Views Dress, this comes in multiple colours and would also make a nice to-and-from-the-beach option. 5. Waves For Days Shorts, (could not find the top pictured, regrettably!) 6. Great Ways Top, like the dress this top also comes in multiple colours and I thought it would pair well with the white flowy shorts!
