Black and Tan
As I packed-up my suitcase to return to the UK, I realized that (not counting all of the stuff I acquired while in the US) all of the stuff I packed for my week at home was either black, white, or camel. Out of character for me perhaps, but it certainly made dressing for the week into a no-brainer. Sometimes, that is exactly what is required.
I have already bored you to tears with my love letter to tunics, so I will resist the urge to do so again. Okay, maybe just for a minute...ready? (Deep breath) I love tunics and I got this Michael Kors beaded linen tunic on Ebay for like ten bucks and it looks really great with khaki or white and what's even better is that you don't have to mess with a lot of accessories because the beading sort of takes care of that for you and the wrinkliness of the linen keeps the whole thing from looking too formal but it is actually perfect for a warm summer's day and you manage to feel pretty while sweating it out in the heat and how often can you say that!?
There. Was that under a minute? It kind of helps it along when you don't waste time with punctuation.
