Summer in Michigan revolves around one thing: water. Little lakes, big lakes, boats, your friend's boats, cottages on the lake or your friends' cottage on the lake, kayaking, paddle boards etc, etc. And hey, it's not a bad way to spend a few months. All Michigan residents do in the summer is seek water and since we live right near the Great Lakes, it's not too hard to find it. What is your water activity of choice in the summer? Mine is laying on the beach reading. It's hands down my favorite. But any time a friend will offer up a boat ride I'm game for that too ;)
Speaking of that "one thing"... my wardrobe in the summer revolves around one thing too: simplicity. I like items that do double duty, are easy to style and easy to wear. That is why I love this tunic! It's lightweight and comfortable and can be worn so many different ways. Here I am wearing it with a simple pair of shorts and a wedge sandal which is a classic summer look. I've also worn it as a swim cover up, with blue jeans or with black jeans. Any and all of those outfits worked great. The best part is that this tunic is under $30... so it's the perfect summer buy.
