Hello Summer Friends! Summer always presents a style dilemma concerning what we wear to cover up at the beach or poolside. Finding the perfect tunic can be challenging. It is nice to find a tunic that we can wear to the beach, but can also look great with our favorite skinny jeans, or as a dress- with a slip underneath. I found this silk tunic with golden embroidery and sequins for $4.00 at a thrift store in East Hampton. I was pleased to say the least. I love this shade of turquoise, it reminds me of the sea and looks good against my skin, which varies from very pale and sort of pink, to sun deprived ivory. I think this color looks good on anyone: olive, pink and cocoa skin shades are complimented with the summer shade. Like the look? Here are some shopping suggestions:
From top to bottom and left to right: An Old Navy tunic via eBay currently trading at $10.00. A turquoise tunic from Indiavogue.com for $200.00. The iconic Pucci tunic from My Theresa at the pricey sum of $670.00, and two shades of summer cool from soft surroundings for $44.95. Or you can do as I did and scout your local consignment stores and thrift stores. Another way to save some cash is to make your own necklaces. If you can thread a needle, you can make a necklace. It is a great DIY project and the savings are substantial. Here is a pic of the necklaces I am wearing that I made a few years back:
Are you hitting the August summer slump? Find something in aqua to brighten your moods and take the color of the ocean with you year-round. If that is not enough, buy some sparking gemstone beads and string yourself some new necklaces to wear poolside. Catch some summer sparkle and love your August!
