« Same shirt, different day - Let's Talk Men's Dress Style | Main | Tell me about it, stud »

Last Spring/Summer I wrote a little piece on going undercover in cute beach cover ups from JCrew. Well, it's a new season and I figured I'd revisit the topic since there are plenty of viable swim suitable options out there to slip over your sexiest bikinis.

This weekend I bought myself a sweet Crochet Trim Beach Cover up that was only $10.50 - an easy splurge that cost less than my sashimi sushi lunch yesterday. At that price, I don't have to worry about getting sand and sea lice all over it (for some reason small children get a real kick out of burying me in sand every time I doze off to the latest issue of Lucky magazine).

On those days when I want to look as glamourous as an A-List actress on hiatus in St. Tropez, I'll go for a more refined cover up like this 1. Chic Caftan or 2. White Lace Tunic, both from In Style Swimwear. Someone get me some Bain De Soleil and a cocktail with an umbrella in it, stat. (*I meant the suntan lotion, not the former star of Punky Brewster)

3. For a more casually chic look on days when I'm feeling eco-beach friendly, I'll slip on this Organic cotton hoodie from Aventura Clothing and call it an Earth Day.

4. Another favorite cover up that is perfect after a swim in the deep blue sea is this Toweling Bandea Dress from farfetch.com. It soaks up the seawater and adoring looks from the lifeguard on duty.

Take cover up.

You know? I am going to embrace the fact that I am starting to resemble Lainie Kazan and buy items 1 and 3. (Hey, she was a hottie back in the day!)
