The moment the kids have been waiting for all year has finally arrived: the very first day of summer vacation. Begin the season on the right foot by stocking the backyard with plenty of playthings to keep them outside. Whether they’re relaxing – er, splashing – by the pool with you, jumping on a trampoline, or digging in the sandbox (or on the beach), everything they need for the best summer ever is right here. Just don’t forget the sunscreen.

three dots

Normally, beach shifts are relegated to weekends on the sand, waiting in line at the boardwalk snack bar, or sipping mai tais seaside. However, with the expert styling of Rue La La stylist Maureen, this Three Dots vintage voile boatneck tunic has traded in its sea legs (at least in part) to become one of our favorite looks for out on the town as well.

1. We believe that the night is still young. Wear the tunic out, with the sash tied in a loose knot at the side, partner with dark rinse jeggings, a long gold necklace with matching bangles, and your most leggy black heels.

2. We believe that the words “beach bum” are not an excuse for summer slacking. Wear this tunic as a dress, pair with a berry-hued straw bag, flat leather sandals, a lavender floppy sunhat, and of course, shades.

3. We believe that for a better view (and loftier sense of style), heels can do the trick for outdoor music festivals. Team with a teal pocketed skirt, tall metallic sandals, and wear this tunic tucked.

Now it’s your turn to play stylist – how would you style this floral number?
