Being back in Florida, I am reminded on a daily basis just how bright the sun is!!!  Every time I walk out of the house, I feel like I’m nearly blinded.  Cue watery and squinty eyes.
I’m not a huge fan of slipping my sunglasses into the collar of my shirt (especially when they’re heavy… hello cleavage) or on top of my head (worse than a headband headache).  So, what’s a girl to do?  Croakies are cute, but sometimes they’re a bit too, how should I say it, predictable?
TUGS are more than a croakie… in fact, they’re basically an extra accessory!  And ohsoperfect for the summer.  I’m a huge fan of my pink seersucker Tugs, and Little V loves to borrow them too!
I was so excited when I got an email from TUGS sharing the newest pattern: May Flowers.  I am so so so in love with the floral print.
TUGS is sponsoring a giveaway on College Prep!!!  TWO winners!!!  (I love when your chances of winning are doubled!)

I follow everyone. It's hard for me to pick a favorite sunny spot. I have so many summer memories of family vacations all over the US. Perhaps my MOST favorite would have to be Dubrovnik, Croatia. Even though it has rocky beaches instead of sand, the clear blue water is absolutely fabulous. And you can't beat the sunset. Plus, it's where I spent my 16th birthday (6 years ago!!!)


My favorite sunny spot is my back deck. I love sitting out there with a book, coca-cola, and my dogs!

I follow them on twitter and liked them on facebook.


Those seersucker croakies are darling! I follow you on GFC and my favorite vacation spot would be either Maine or Bermuda!


My favorite vacation spots in the summer are Barcelona or anywhere in the Rocky mountains. I don't know which is better! I live on the beach, so I like to go somewhere different in the summer.


I follow TheCollegePrepster. My favorite vacation spot is Las Vegas, NV. I followed Tugs on twitter, and liked Tugs on Facebook.

My favorite Sunny shore is…actually I have 2. One's a lake and the other is the ocean. My Lake is Lake Michigan in Chicago, IL in August. I'm from downtown Chicago so shore + city = amazing! And my Sea is St. Simon's Island, GA. I LOVE lighthouses and the beach is gorgeous!

My favorite Vacation spot is the Bahamas. I just went a few weeks ago and I am dying to go back. I love the warm sun and all of the amounts of sun block you have to put on. We took a cruise to a private island in the bahamas and i just fell in love with the blue water. I would go back anyday that is why it is the perfect vacation spot!
