Citta Viva Beach Towel Review (my fav)

Ok...speaking of beach towels...can I just tell you that I have a favorite of my own?  I rendered my yellow towel for Scarlet's use, so I was going to have to find me a new one, and let me just tell you, I found the most perfect towel ever!  We spend a lot of summer days at the beach...like at least 4 days a week, if not more, and when I say 'days at the beach' I mean alllll day...like 10-5, so I didn't want just some scrappy old towel.  I needed a goody:  here it is: Velour on one side, classic terry on the other. Thick, over-sized, warm and above all else...it's so pretty!
 My towel had it's maiden voyage last weekend.  Around these parts, it's breezy almost every day.  The sun is out, but there's always a little bit of a wind.  So, when the sun hid behind a cloud, or the wind got a little bit to aggressive for my Arizona blood, I laid this over my lap, and was perfect!  And when the sun was shining in all it's glory, the velour was the best seat in the house.  
I just had to share...It's called the Citta Viva Beach Towel go get one (there are 3 other designs, mine is the 'Diaz')
Citta Design, the creator of my new towel is based in New Zealand and is a home ware and accessories design house.  They are just launching their new summer line to the US this month, so go check them out!
Happy Summer!

(Review) Fresh Produce Tango Skirt

I had the opportunity to choose another piece from Fresh Produce from their new summer collection.  It was a treat for me to sit and peruse their fun catalogue and see what gems I could find, and pick the 1 thing that I'd like to try out.  
In all honesty, most of the clothing that they have in their catalogue seems to be a little old for me...but each time that I've had the opportunity to try one of their items {click here for my last experience} I'm always so impressed with their clothing, and honestly feel like it's perfect for me!  I've gotten tons of compliments on the items that I have from Fresh Produce!
I dropped my son off at school just before I was supposed to meet Jen to take the pictures for this post...and three mom's complimented me on my outfit in the 10 minutes we were standing in the school yard waiting for the bell to ring...awesome!
Anyways, my choice from their darling summer line was this Tango Skirt in cool breeze.  
 here's what I love about the Tango Skirt:
-SUPER comfortable...seriously.  The material is light, soft, and stretchy, it was perfect for the toasty end of spring day.
-the asymmetrical hemline is my favorite.  I don't have any other skirts like this, and I felt so fun in this skirt!
-And, while summer is totally here at the beach, I know it'll be the perfect skirt to throw over my suit and take all the troops down to the beach.
I seriously picked the best skirt in the whole catalogue!
Check out some of Fresh Produce's other popular summer options:
...AND, I know that we have some readers that are not here in the United States...Fresh Produce now ships to over 200 countries, so women outside the US can enjoy the colorful styles, too.
