Sun Fashion

smart summer style

Traveling anytime soon? I'm sharing fashions today that are perfect for your next beach trip. The dress is from Coolibar--a brand from Australia that focuses on keeping women looking great while enjoying fun in the sun, We love clothing that can go from the beach to dinner out. This Aqua Tunic dress is compact in your suitcase and does double duty.

I brought this dress to California to the Mom 2.0 summit this year. It packed so well. When I arrived, I hung it up and the wrinkles fell out. I wore it to the pool (over my swimsuit) and to a party. Versatility is key. I was only traveling with carry-on--everything I packed had to be essential. BONUS: For anyone who is trying to amp up their sun protection, this is worth a look. The dress has a "aqua SUNTECT® fabric" with sun protection woven in with coverage of 50+

The hair was easy. I was on day 3 of a blow-out and it was a little flat. Here's what I did: I separated the hair in two sections by the front of my head. Then I did a simple braid and joined the two pieces in the back. Simple and off the face.

My jewelry was from LOFT (the necklace) and MARK (the bracelet). I love packing versatile statement pieces like these. The ivory color can go with just about everything you pack for a trip.

The shoes you've seen before--they are a Kate Spade wedge I scored at TJMaxx.
