Every summer I have two simple missions - to reduce the circumference of my thighs, and to find the perfect coverup.
Usually proceeding my failed attempt at mission one, I swiftly move on to mission two, searching for the perfect beach caftan or coverup that will conveniently camouflage and conceal my aforementioned unrelenting abductor muscles.
Any beach girl knows what I'm looking for, an easy and effortless throw on dress, skirt or tunic that will take her from pool to patio, beach to boardwalk and sea to street, in style. A coverup that is more mod, less mumu. One that you can get wet and sandy without fretting over the five hundred clams you spent on it.
No, I want a coverup that is just as hot as the bikini I'm rocking underneath. Something that will still show a little leg without showing a lot of cellulite. And by george, I think I've got it.
I'm hot and bothered over this Beach Blanket Coverup from Roxy. It's oversized but still shows off a sexy bit of shoulder and stems, looks as lightweight and comfy as a favorite tee, and showcases a colorful tribal-like trim on the sleeves and hem.
I can wear it with flipflops or wedges, bikini bottoms or shorts, and no one will have to know that my first mission was impossible (should I be willing to accept it).
