My personal crush with Lisa Marie Fernandez started last year with her delicious towelling cover-ups.  This season she doesn’t disappoint…easy, breezy summer dresses with perfect proportions and edible edging.

There’s more cheeky towelling..

And the cutest bikini ever..Fernandez manages to walk that sophisticated but essential line between utilitarian and chic…in a fabulous pair of gladiators with no sign of foot-slap or lace louche…

I still love the whole idea of towelling as summer clothes.  Why isn’t it more popular? It’s the summer beach dress that’s missing from my wardrobe..that sense of something warm and cuddly to throw on when you’re trying to eek out the last few hours of a perfect summers day, that magical time the dusk starts to draw in and shadows lengthen and a g’n’t tastes especially good..I’ve looked for cheaper brands but there’s very little..unless you’re a child…never thought I’d be jealous of childrens’ clothes…but take away the polka dots and I am.

This is the second year I’ve lusted after the impossible, so this time I have a cunning and devious plan because where there’s a will, there’s a way.  Watch this space..

    Are you going to make your own?! The toweling cover-ups are very comfy looking. You’re right, they’d be perfect and scrumptious for early evening chill.

    I have a white with medium blue stripes towel tunic (boatneck) that was my Dad’s from the 1970’s. It was made by LEVI’s. A part of summer happiness beach bag. XO
