Peace out San Diego State! Thank you to all who hopped aboard the Bikini Truck, slid out the back, and shared your photos…and hopefully scored a new Spring Break-worthy suit along the way.

Toward the end of my stay in Florida we said adios to the beautiful beaches and started cruising the rivers that run through all the homes and islands of Vero Beach.  As you travel along these rivers you find all sorts of unexplored islands and if you’re lucky you can even see manatees swimming underneath you! This floral print skirt was perfect for these warm afternoons spent by the dock. Maxi skirts always look great when paired with a tight crochet crop top, so I went for the halter lace look. And of course everything is better with some boots, especially these ones from Matisse. This look is perfect for water gypsies like me and is also a great outfit to have with the festival season quickly approaching! I plan on whipping this out again for my spring time desert adventures!

Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
As with taking photos on land, if you are shooting with natural light and want your subject lit well and not as a silhouette, make sure the sun is behind you! But, if the sun is not at a lower angle closer to the horizon, ask your model to look up to the surface to have the sun light up their face!

Adios, UC Santa Barbara babes, you will be missed. The Billabong Bikini Truck, powered by SWELL is packing up and on the road to San Diego. Yesterday, Bikini lovers from Isla Vista (i.e., 99.9% of girls who live in Isla Vista) had the first chance to come aboard the bikini showroom and slide out into Greek Park.
All for a good cause. Our hostesses from Delta Gamma helped to orchestrate our first charity event. With nine sororities competing for their charity of choice, the house with the highest sales of the day took home 10% of proceeds to give to their charity.
And the winners….Delta Gamma! Over $300 was raised for Service for Sight!

Thank you everyone for coming out to support your cause…while finding a few Billabong Bikinis, VonZipper shades, and Pura Vida bracelets along the way of course.
