Summer Style Secrets: Starfish and Sundresses


This week's Summer Style Secrets are coming straight from our
nation's capital, please welcome Lindsay, of Starfish and Sundresses!
~*~
Hi Zhush readers! I was so excited when Sue asked me to participate in her new series Summer Style Secrets. Summer is my absolute favorite season and having grown up on the beach, I've definitely amassed a few secrets of my own. I hope you enjoy them!

1. The Perfect Bikini: Finding a flattering suit is a summer essential for me. The ruffles on this Zimmerman bikini are adorable and help add curves where nature may have forgotten.



2. A Great Tote: This Moroccan Market Basket is perfect for toting your sunscreen, book, and towel or fresh flowers back from the farmers market. At only $42 it's definitely a steal!



3. Hot Pink Fingers and Toes: For summer manis and pedis I say, the brighter the better! Pops of color look great on sun tanned tootsies.

4. Sundresses: In D.C, summer is all about beating the humidity. Sundresses are my go-to to stay cool but still look stylish. This Tibi dress is the latest addition to my lust list!

Thanks Lindsay!
{"Hot Pink" is so going to be MY new Summer pedicure color!}
