    Do you have a hard time wearing comfortable but stylish clothing for summer?

    I can get ready for summer and be quite comfortable for a helluva lot less than that! Gramici shorts, any old T-shirt or a polo shirt, my regular watch, off-the-shelf suntan lotion and my wonderful pair of original Vuarnets.

    I mean if you're going to name drop...leave it at Vaurnet.

    I don't do name brands, I go cheap brands and if people don't like what I'm wearing then they don't have to look at me!!!!

    If you have a job, you may not have many options based on dress code. I've been able to get away with lululemon polos which are super breathable but too expensive ($88/shirt). They do fit pretty well if you are fit.

    And at the end of a beach day, a hydrating mist containing desert lime, olive leaf and pomegranate extracts is a good way to wash the salt from your face. icon_eek.gif

    And reading the rest of the article, the clothing items and accessories all have designer names. Yeah, summer is indeed a challenge when you don't know the difference between a beach and a Paris fashion runway. icon_razz.gif

    If it weren't for this being from the NY Times I'd suspect it's an Onion piece.

    I prefer Summer, short sleeved shirts; shorts on the beach and no layers of clothing that the Winter months bring.

    I think this is a nice outfit but it makes her look a bit like a boy. And the shirt is white, yet her purse is off-white. Tisk tisk.
