Here are vibrant colors to wear this summer that can make you feel like a million bucks! While on vacation in Key West I wore a coral and pink bathing suit, and also a peachy pink dress. Then, at the Haven conference in Atlanta, I wore a happy red dress.
I’m at the Atlanta airport where my head is still swimming with all the new knowledge from the Haven conference that I received to make me a SUPER BLOGGER! Kim from Northern California Style was with me.
Social media and content creation are constantly changing and there is always room for improvement. I try, I try…
Anyway, welcome to my five faves including colorful attire, a good book, and a tasty hummus recipe.
Also, remember to head over to see what Annie and Cindy have found at the end of the post
1. What To Read: A Novel About Key West History
This is a fun summer read with a historical slant.
My friend, Cathi recommended it and I finished it in two days. The Woman At The Light.
2. Vibrant Colored Summersalt Bathing Suit
Note: as a 65-year-old, when posing for the dreaded bathing suit shot, one knee up covers your belly…and how about a big smile!
That is an old pareo…I like to buy pareo/scarves at places like Nordstrom Rack to use as coverups.
3. Summer Linen Dress
This linen flowered dress was my first purchase from Faherty. Love the quality. This is an extra-small since I am 5’1″. The sleeves were slipping off my shoulders a bit, so I had them slightly altered. If you are taller, they would probably be fine.
I will be posting Key West highlights later in the week…where to eat, drink, shop, etc.
4. Tuckernuck Royal Blue Shirtdress
Howard and I gave Mercedes this cute striped shirt dress for her 60th birthday. She got tons of compliments on it, which made me smile almost as if I was wearing it!

5. Garlic and Lemon Hummus
My friend, Tori made this delicious hummus recipe last week. Hard to pin her down for the exact recipe since she has made it so much, that she doesn’t use one. It is similar to this one except with three cloves of garlic instead of one.
She also sprinkles it with olive oil, paprika, and Za’atar (which I am buying immediately).
