Summer Style Secrets: Pretty Pink Tulips

 This week’s “secrets” are coming from Elizabeth 
Through a series of coincidences and mutual friends,
I’ve had the happy experience of meeting 
Elizabeth in person, now several times…
and consider her to be a true friend!
Her charming style and warm personality 
shine through in everything she does.
Here are some of her Summer Style Secrets:
1- Roberta Roller Rabbit Bondi Beach Bag 
     ~ Since “pink” is my color, I love this casual pink print!

2- Neutrogena Healthy Defense Sunscreen
    ~ Before I even put on my swimsuit,
       I make sure my skin is covered.
       The only place a lobster looks good
        is inside a lobster roll!

3- Melissa Obadash cowboy hat
    ~ As an added layer of defense,
       I top off my ponytail with this hat.
       And, as a native Texan….
       I just think it’s cool!

4- Missoni Ipanema Beach Towel
    ~ A bit of a splurge…..
        I just feel so much more chic at the beach
       when I’m lounging on this beach towel.
       Lands End is fine for my boys,
       but mama needs Missoni!

Thanks Elizabeth! 
 ~As a native New Yorker…I think that hat is pretty cool too!

    What a great towel! I always like to have a fabulous beach towel, too. Even if I'm a hot beachy mess, I'll still look chic…I hope!

    You won't believe it, but I had told myself I needed to visit your blog today to see what it was all about. I kept seeing it mentioned or followed by so many of my faves and figured it must be amazing. IT IS.

    I can't tell you how honored I was that you commented on my post today!
    And you're following- EEK!!!!

    Sorry, comments and followers are like my crack, except not as dangerous and bad for your skin!

    xo, Ms. Bright

  25. Great guest post-

    Love the straw cowboy hat- Have wanted to get one but am worried it would be hard to pack when we travel- So I've been sticking with fabric.

    Love it though-

  43. Great tips! Loving the cowgirl hat so much! I wear one every single weekend in the Hamptons…carefree and protects my hair and face. Although, my hat is not as "fancy" as Elizabeth's! Great beach towel and beach bag too. Yummy suggestions all around.
