Welcome to June’s edition of My Refined Style Link Up … a link up just for us over 40 babes!
And I’m putting to rest the myth that bloggers never wear the same thing twice by styling my tunic dress seen in April’s link up in a different more summery way for June.
My mind has been on vacation lately, so I decided to do a vacation look with this tunic.
I’m not usually happy showing this much leg actually, but by the beach or around the pool, my comfort level expands with the temperatures. (Even to the point of wearing a bikini, but don’t ever expect a photo of that!)
Here are both looks side by side. With black leggings and a black fringe bag, the look is more spring and even will be cute for fall, right? And then with cork wedges and a straw bag, the look is very summery.
Plus I’m rocking a cool braid that I wish I could take credit for. One of my favorite students did this for me last week during finals. No, I couldn’t give her extra credit but she got brownie points in spades!
The flower was my addition.
(I know, big deal!)

Also, here’s a beauty secret/tip. In the summer I use Jergen’s Glow every day and Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs for special occasions. If you have ghostly white legs and also try to stay out of the sun, give them a try. Of course the funny thing is that in these pics I’m using both products … and this is how tan I look. You can only imagine how white I am without anything!
Memorial Day has come and gone, and this teacher is on her vacation, so heck with waiting for summer solstice, I’m claiming it’s SUMMER!
Happy summer, Dolls!

Such a pretty tunic! I love it styled both ways! And, yes, it'll be so cute in fall, too!
Enjoy your vacation!!! Any exciting plans?

Thanks Andrea! 🙂
LOVE this tunic!! So versatile!
Thanks Elise! 🙂
Um…so…you have fabulous legs! So rock on with the short dresses and skirts this summer! This tunic is amazing! It actually looks like a totally different piece against black leggings than it does against bare legs. Both equally lovely ways to style it! I kind of want to get my hands on a tunic just like it! And you hair is adorable!
Aww you're so sweet. Of course I only added the photos where my legs look okay! ;P
Love the colorful print of your tunic! It's styled perfectly for summer! How sweet that one of your students braided your hair! It's so pretty!

You are the hottest 50 year old out there Dawn Lucy. I love this bohemian dress worn on its own. I don't think it looks short at all. Thanks for another fabulous linkup!
Welcome by and linkup today when you have a chance. Come share your gorgeous style with my readers. Thanks, Ada. =)
Aww you're too sweet! OXOX
Wear that dress proudly my friend! yeah show off those legs 🙂 I really like both looks. The wedge sandals are pretty with the sheath dress/tunic. I need to find ways to wear my hair up this summer. Love the braid too. Kudos to your student
Thanks for linking up with MRS!
I wish I could braid my own hair like this. Yeah, this braid would be gorgeous on you! OXOX
Two great looks. Love them both. Especially love your black sandals! I'm a Jargons girl too!
Thanks Cathy! 🙂
What a great tunic Dawn, love how you showed how you wore it in two different posts, styled two different ways. I need to buy a tunic, don't have one!! Always so great to co-host with you!!
Love co-hosting with you. Your style is DIVINE! 🙂
I love how you styled it both ways! Those blue shoes are awesome! We do repeat clothes 🙂 I am a huge fan of Jergens Glow too! It's fun to co-host with you.
Always fun to cohost with you too Jennifer! 🙂
Fabulous looks, both with and without leggings. Love the colors and the pattern play in the tunic. Thank you for adding your post to my Powers The Flower link-up.
Thanks Rena! 🙂
Girl!! You rock—that dress is so summery, yet I loved it also with the leggings!
And I love how you braided your hair!!
Thanks Jodie! 🙂
I love the tunic and both ways you styled it. My knees are not my best feature but with leggings this is a look I love.
Beautiful boho tunic and it looks so fabulous both ways you have styled it! Your hair looks so pretty in the braid and I like the addition of the flower.
Thanks for linking up with Fabulous Friday! Hope to see you back next week.

So lovely and I like how you styled the tunic for summer. Your braided hair looks so lovely Dawn.
Thank you for linking up to "Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me"
You look great in a boho look and I love how you styled this both ways. What a cool print!
Thanks for linking up with turning heads tuesday!
Need to spend some time tonight shopping your tunic selection! What gorgeous options. In my younger days, I preferred everything to be fitted but at 58, not so much! Your hair is so feminine and your dress is perfect for hot summer days. Thank you for linking up with us at The Blended Blog.
