East Uk – Pretty Embroidered Tunic Perfect For Keeping Cool

Hi Everyone!
Yay! Summer is definitely here!


I’m at Thorpe Bay in Essex today wearing this gorgeous Embroidered Tunic by East Uk. Famed for their intricate embroidered and stylish lightweight designs that are so easy to wear in hot climates.

Travelling down to the beach in our unusually hot UK temperatures, I wished I had dared to bare my milky white legs by wearing shorts! It’s boiling!

The blue embroidery on this Chikan embroidered top is bold up against the white sheer cotton. Super cool and as light as a feather on. Ideal to wear with shorts or over your swimwear too.

How cute are these coloured beach huts? I’ve come down to the beach to take a leisurely stroll and photos with my mother. I was worried that the beach would be busy, but we have it all to ourselves and it’s beautiful!

How stunning is the embroidery?

I’ve chosen white jeggings to pair with the Tunic, my rattan shopper and espadrilles.

The Tunic is quite sheer and made from 100% cotton. Available in sizes 8-20 and on a not so hot day I would slip this over a vest top or camisole. Today it’s going to reach 32 degrees!

Not quite the Mediterainium but still pretty looking out at the boats. 

I like looking at the boat’s names. This little one called Lacy Lady!


It’s lovely sitting here with mother, reminiscing about how we used to come here when I was a little girl. I actually lived along this seafront years ago and I loved it.


How cute is the embroidery on the back of the Tunic? I couldn’t think of anything more perfect to wear on a scorching hot day! Do take a look at their beautiful summer collection here there are so many beautiful styles to choose from.
 Do you have a holiday planned somewhere glorious and hot? I’d like to know.

Ready and waiting to be taken out!

    Your photos are wonderful and the tunic is fantastic. I adore embroidered details and the element on the back is a marvelous surprise. It looks like you and your mother had a nice, relaxing time along the shore. Thank you for adding your post to my Fine-Whatever link up.

    i'm hoping to find some stylish cooler clothing on my uk trip in 2 weeks time, although compared to summer in dubai, i'll probably be wearing winter woolies for the first few days while i adjust

    Laurie—I'm in love with this look!! And my legs are whiter than yours, I'm sure! But I've been trying to embrace the white—and it's much easier, I must admit!!

      Thank you Jodie! You need to get the fake tan out like me! xx

    You lovely embroidered top brought back childhood memories of a book entitled Blue Willow that I often checked out of the library for its lovely cover art. How crisp and cool is that blue against the gauzy white top! Perfect for a day-trip to the beach.

    Thank you for sharing it with us on Fabulous Friday.

    What gorgeous photos! It looks like a beautiful location. I do love the embroidery blouse on you. I've always loved those kinds of tops on other people but, for some reason, they don't really suit me 🙁
    You look beautiful! I'm glad you're having some lovely weather for a change 😀

    Laurie, this is the perfect beach outfit and sings nostalgia for some reason! The elegance and ease created by the all white look and the beautiful contrasting embroidery makes me want to be where you are! Gorgeous photos, too!
