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)
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.
