Guide to a Groovy Summer!

Your kids have graduated and are out of the house. Maybe you’re lucky enough to have retired. You can rock on your porch, curl up with a book, sip a glass of wine and enjoy the summer breeze. Summer is about relaxing, taking it slow and spending time with friends and family. Stay cool and enjoy the good life

Groovy Beach Must-Haves:
A day at the beach or by the pool is a day for relaxing. A floppy straw hat, chic bag and nautical cover-up to ensure you look polished and not swept away. Throw a Zags square into your beach bag for extra protection if you feel like your getting too much sun.
