Beach Poncho

I am wearing a lot of beach ponchos these days.  They are so easy to throw on over my bathing suits and wear on my daily walks on the beach.  I wore these caftan on our trip over the holidays and this one is a wonderful tie-die blue silk that is so soft and lightweight it floats.  It is just want I want to wear when it is super hot and anything else would be too heavy and clingy.  I can’t resist anything in blue and the tie die pattern looks like ripples of water.

Beach Waves for New Years Eve

I spent the last evening of 2016 enjoying the sunset on the beach watching the waves roll in.  For me, there is nothing better than being on the beach, soaking up the sun, sea air and the sounds of the ocean. I like to walk up and down the beach looking for shells and splashing in the water.  I am wearing a gorgeous blue gauze poncho from Cynthia Cazort Collins.  Cynthia and I went to college together and have stayed in touch ever since.  She has an infectious enthusiastic personality and has been creating beautiful things for years.  I first bought her jewelry and now am excited to be trying out her elegant clothes. The ponchos and kaftans are the softest lightest voile that pack like a charm and can be worn as cover ups over a swim suit or, with a full slip, as a dress. They are effortless, weightless and perfect from beach to table.  I wore the black one to dinner with a large chunky necklace and flat sandals.
