Let's face it -- our bodies are canvasses that we can color and ornament -- we are in charge of the "look" we want to present. What is your style? This summer as I begin to bare my skin I prefer to throw away the magnifiers, stay loose, chill out and dress in what makes me feel good and hip. I've put together a few choice items that are my go-to favorites and finds.
This is only a short list -- there's so much great stuff out there this season. What are some of your favorite finds? Please comment and throw in any of your favorites for us to check out in the space below. Trust me -- we'll all tell you candidly -- what we think of your suggestions.
Love this whole look, don't you? Here's what's featured above:Calleen Cordero sneakersPete & Greta cargo shortsTwo Hippies messenger bagSubtle Luxury white tankVoyage Indie crochet sweater
BA50's you're gonna LOVE, LOVE, LOVE their products! No excuses not to pack light with these basics. All that's needed is their little tee for evening and the "Stephanie" for daytime layered under a white blouse---add jeans and sandals, a few accessories and you've got your go-to summer outfit.
How does this "cooling system" work? Their seamless nylon shaping tank designed with Outlast Technology uses an innovative heat management technology that balances your body temperature. It smooths & shapes your middle while keeping you from getting too hot or too cold

The Cropped Pants -- an alternative to Shorts.
Even the beautiful Sharon Stone at age 54 has "krinkly knees" -- but so what! Fashion mags tell us to hide them, but do we have to? It's not easy to find shorts that cover the knees and don't make you look like you're headed out to the golf course--BUT if we refer to them as "cropped pants," then we have some options.

Practical and "A Tad Nautical" Beach Coverup
My partner Ronna LOVES this CYA coverup. I think it's ok and a tad preppy -- but she thinks it's a winner -- so I included it. She loves to sail and this look is definitely nautical. Doesn't it look a bit like a coat? Whatever -- if I'm going to take my "sun blocking" seriously this summer, I may have to consider this one. I do like that it shields the arms fully from the sun and is available in plenty of bright colors. If you don't know the Athleta product line, it's worth checking out. P.S.: I love their biking clothes.
