My holiday wardrobe was in desperate need of a refresh for my recent trip to Abu Dhabi. I’ve been taking the same old sarongs and beach dresses on beach holidays for years. As luck would have it I was invited to choose one of the fabulous cover ups from Miss Tunica just in the nick of time. There are so many stunning designs that I had a really difficult time picking one! I’m such a fan of leopard print though – it goes with everything, right?
I love the maxi length and flowing style of the Mondello tunic; when I manage to prise myself off my sunlounger to go to the bar or the toilet I prefer to cover up. I know it’s perfectly acceptable to walk around in just a bikini but I always throw on a dress or a sarong – I wouldn’t walk around in my underwear so it doesn’t feel right to me not to put on another layer. Maybe I’m just a prude! But then who wouldn’t want to wear this gorgeous tunic? Adding a little poolside glamour with Miss Tunica made me feel confident and put together…despite the sweltering heat.
The fabric is really soft and feels lovely against the skin. Handcrafted in India, the V neck is decorated with metallic beads. Miss Tunica was “inspired by the concept of promoting a woman’s creativity, individuality and personal style – on and beyond the beach”. The long, glamourous style makes going from beach to bar effortless.
As the fabric is quite sheer, Miss Tunica also have a range of slip dresses in various colours to wear underneath. I chose a long black one and I can honestly say it was one of the most useful pieces of clothing I packed. A simple sheath dress can be dressed up or down so easily, making it a holiday wardrobe hero. The fit is very flattering as it hugs in all the right places without feeling clingy. The fabric quality is fantastic and retains its shape all day. I can see myself wearing this with a denim jacket and a statement necklace. Having really versatile pieces is key when you want to pack light (I’m still practising on that one!).

Miss Tunica also sent me this gorgeous ring to complete the look as a lovely surprise. I wore it lots on holiday as it goes with so many outfits. I can’t wait for my next beach holiday so I can wear this fabulous outfit again!
