Hey! I leave for a day and I come back to awesome compliments.
I'm wondering about these tunics because I went to a party on the water and all of the women were wearing them. The women all looked like they fell out of a Lily Pulitzer catalog. I definitely felt out of place in my tankini top and denim short shorts (it was a really hot that day and I didn't want to show up in a bathing suit). I never really saw myself in a beach tunic and have always considered them frumpy, but maybe it's because the ones I've seen are shapeless. I've used sarongs though.
I guess I'll do some online shopping to find something that'll I'll feel comfortable in without totally conforming. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
ND, I laughed when I read your comment about the muumuu. All paths will lead to the muumuu.
