One of the features I am most excited about in my new apartment is the location. More specifically the fact that 30-seconds after walking out of my building I can be lounging on the beach.
Okay. So it isn’t the Pacific Ocean. Or the Atlantic. Or even some fantastic exotic Sea. It is Lake Michigan. But still. It is still a beach and it is a really big lake!
Key for my 30-second walk beneath Lake Shore is the cover up. After all, I am a lady!
The perfect cover up must look like clothing (ie- appropriate enough to throw over a bathing suit and with some cute sandals to go eat an easy lunch in) but light and easy enough to no look like clothing on the actual beach. Does that make sense?
Here are 3 great styles of cover up, sure to please:
The Tunic (this option: By Malene Birger Dandiasi Tunic Dress):
I would argue that this is the classic cover-up style. A tunic feels like a sundress with the ease of a t-shirt. The semi-sheer style screams pool/beach and the long sleeves give it a polished look.
The Maxi (this option: Diane von Furstenberg Imena Cover Up Dress):
I like the elegance and length of this maxi. For me it has that real clothing feel, but still possesses the necessary ease. The maxi is a great option if you need your cover up to transition to street life.
The Romper (this option: Camilla Pentacle Halter Romper):
Probably the most playful option, rompers are ideal for a waterside fun day. This one-size option is great because you can adjust it by tying knots into the halter adding your own bit of flair.
So tell me, what cover up style is your favorite?
