Now that the visions of sugar plums have stopped dancing in our heads, we're dreaming of sunshine, beaches, and sexy summer wear. Lucky Rihanna doesn't have to wait for warm weather thanks to Christmas in Barbados, but she's helping us plan for the future in this teeny weeny blue bikini.

At first we were shocked by how not skimpy the "What Now" singer's bottoms seem to be. Full-coverage isn't her typical preference, but we love that it gives the briefs a '60s feel, especially with those buttons.

Naturally, Ri-Ri made sure the rest of the look was more in line with her wild style. The triangle string-top shows off as much skin as possible without risking a nip slip, but the contrasting color black keeps it classy and chic.

Our favorite element of all is the matching denim top and sunnies. Nothing says "island life" like a complete beach look. As much as we love the winter holidays, we're counting down the days 'til we can steal this entire ensemble. Current timeline: T-minus five months.
