Dear Readers, Crissie (from bug&Bear) here, with a very important question. Memorial Day Weekend is upon us, temperatures are rising and the sun is finally making an appearance in our daily lives, this can only mean one thing: summer is right around the corner. The big question? Are you ready?

I'm still searching for the perfect black bikini (sexy string or sultry retro?) and the perfect cover-up (pattern and texture or flirty frills?) to get me thought the sunny season. Where do you shop for the perfect suit? What inspires your summer ensembles?  And what's in your closet for this season?
