Blame it on the beach!

I know I'm crazy to mix colors like this, but all I can say is :
"Blame it on the beach!"
The beach, the sun,
the water and the fun.... made me go haywire with colors!





Living in the mid west and knowing that there is no beach near by, makes me crave for beaches even more.
Thanks to artificial beaches on the banks of the Lake Michigan in Chicago! At least I do not have to catch a plane, just a drive of 3 hours and voila, I'm there amidst the deep blue waters, the sand and the sun!

This is what I wore to the beach while in Chicago, last week. Of course I had my swimsuit underneath and remember no fancy accessories or watch when you plan to play in the water. This bag is just the perfect one for a day on the beach- big enough to carry my beach towel, an extra set of clothes, sunscreen and everything else needed for the beach. Moreover,  it is a material which only looks like straw and is waterproof too. Purpose well- served!
And, oh, yes, let me tell you, this pair of shorts were on sale in LOFT for approx $15.00, but when the lady at the check out saw it, she took a look at a sheet of paper and said " Your total is $4.88 plus tax." !!!!!
Purpose very well-served!

Today I'm linking up with  Small Town, Big Wardrobe  and  Coming Unstitched  for the Monday Link-up.


                                                                           What I Am Wearing: 
                                                                      cotton shorts- LOFT    cotton blouse- Calvin Klein    beach bag- BASS
                                                                      sandals- from India    sunnies- Kenneth Cole    straw fedora- Maurices

                                        Thanking you                                                                          Yours fashionably
                                                                                                                                          Juneli
