1.) Summer is our only “official” season in terms of the universal knowledge of seasons in a year. (Do not get me started with “rainy” season. It rains all the time here. Why not name it, “flodding” season instead? )
2.) With 7,107 islands in our country, the choices of your “summer spot” are endless.
3.) We all love a good reason to eat Halo-Halo and not feel too bad about it (“It’s sooo hot, I need to eat something that will cool me off!”)
4.) We can now embrace our skin tone with much gusto– sun-kissed and tanned is in.
But before you start packing for your summer destination, we’ve rounded up inspiration to start it right. And since each one of us are different when it comes to getting our summer on, we are posting a series of these inspirations for each type of “Summer Girls” (now, why do I suddenly feel like breaking into that LFO song?)
On this entry, we are focusing on the Beach Babe (since there are a lot of us, naturally.)
Who better to exemplify ultimate Beach Babe than the woman who popularized the Bikini? A bit coquette
and less “in-your-face”, this woman got the “sexy-in-the-beach” vibe down pat.
The “Inspiring” Goods
Carefree sexy is what we’re aiming for: Fun florals and demure colors matched with sun-kissed skin, gorgeous hair and a come-hither stare.
Most items here are only available overseas and/or are quite expensive but I am hooked on Polyvore! And all of this just serves as ‘inspiration’. I’m pretty sure you can find similar items in stores here in the country.
