Hi, everyone! I hope you all have had a great week! Today the Chic at Every Age girls are showing a great cover-up for your Summer pool and beach days. The Fashion Hour, Style of Sam, So Heather, and I very much liked this “shirt style” for several reasons. It came in these four great colors, plus a gorgeous royal blue, it has long sleeves with button-tab cuffs, and it’s just long enough to cover the ol’ bum. It comes in sizes XS-XL.
If the truth be known, I’ve almost gotten to the point that I don’t want to put on a bathing suit anymore. I don’t want any sun on my body (what little color I have is from a bottle). The day we shot these photos, I had just had stitches taken out of the back of my shoulder. I had a squamous cell carcinoma removed ten days before. After having breast cancer, when I heard the word carcinoma, it scared the living crap out of me. I know it’s different, but it is still enough to get my attention! This cover-up is great because it covers everything when buttoned up, but if you do share your skin with the sun, please use sunscreen!
The bathing suit is super cute from Trina Turk and has all of my favorite colors in it. I think she always has the cutest suits to choose from. It has a pretty back to it with a halter tie. You’ll just have to trust me because the cheeks are not as perky as they once were! Gravity is such a little bitch!
We are heading to New York on Sunday. I am doing one of those “once in a lifetime” things. I won a contest with Harpers Bazaar called “Fabulous at Every Age.” They picked five women spanning decades 20-60, and I am representing the 50’s. I am so honored and truly humbled that I get to experience this! Harpers has always been my favorite go-to magazine! I am so excited to meet the other women too! I will try and Instastory what goes on, and of course, will write a post on it after I get back.
I hope you all have a great weekend!
