Flowy Mackrel

I guess green is officially my color of the season, although I definitely did not plan it that way. Went to return boots to the Rack and left with this Becca tunic. I think it is technically a swim coverup, but there seemed to be none the wiser when I wore it to work. The print kind of makes me think of the back of a mackrel - perfect for Urban Warrior Mermaid!

It is sheer, so I wore a matching Nike sport bra underneath and aimed to keep it dressy in my Okala pumps. I also tucked in one side of the tunic/coverup to give it the illusion of a decorative drape. Very comfortable on a HOT day. I will definitely wear this again.

Becca coverup - $15 at the Rack
Nike bra - Rack
Kelsi Dagger bag - flea market
Big Star jeans - Nordies
Vince Camuto necklace - Nordies

ETA: Added inferior indoor pic to show side tuck better.

    Looks great! Doesn't look like a swim cover up at all.

    You do rock green colors lately, Ms Mermaid! :-)
    Looks great!

    Very creative use of a cover up! It doesn't look as sheer as the stock photo. Did you find that the store light made it more sheer?

    I think I read somewhere that dark green will be more prevalent this fall, so you are ahead of the game! YLF!

    You are the thread title queen for sure!

    You look great Rae! Cool tunic/cover up.  Green is my favorite!

    I love your look! The shade(s) of green are really nice, and the rest of your outfit all goes together so well. The bag and your shirt are setting each other off really nicely. You look ready for a fun summer day or night!

    Oh wow, I want that! It looks sensational on you! You look really happy.

    Love this 'tunic'.   I almost came home with an H&M coverup because I was enamored of the print too.   Unfortunately it wasn't cut in as nice a shape as this one.   Green is definitely worth building a capsule around, it looks so good on you.

    ooooooh, one of my favorites on you!

    Ooh clever and lovely! Smashing color on you. Looks like the hem is interesting for days you want to be extra breezy, too.

    Great tunic and fab way to repurpose a coverup!
