My Beach Cover-Up - Summer 2007

I noticed a trend this weekend related to my personal style. Of all the things I could have worn over my bikini as a beach cover-up, I wore soft, crinkly, cotton skirts again and again...much like this one:

This is what I wore to go on a sunset stroll with my honey. I had a white bikini underneath in case we decided to get in the water again (which we didn't b/c it got pretty darn cold at night), which I paired with a white, casual, cotton skirt and white cropped sweatshirt. It was super comfy and I liked how the wind would catch my skirt now and again - not a la Marilyn Monroe or anything, just a slight, girly swirl of the skirt. Anywho, I just wore the skirt because it was kinda cold...most days I paired my skirts with lightweight tank tops or simply T-Shirts.

Cotton Skirt - American Eagle
Bikini - Candie's
Cropped Sweatshirt - Gap

Can I just say how amazing you look!
Not to sound weird, but the tan, your great body, the crisp white..its so..serene

I have a similar outfit from J.Crew... but my abs don't look like yours!

Hey Enid - thanks - they're from American Eagle (skirt) and Gap (sweatshirt)

Thanks Clotheshorse!

Hey Kate, I thank my mom for my tan - she's filipino (or is it filipina?)

Hey Kerry - Zumba and crunches twice a week...and tennis every other Saturday - it's tough making myself go every week, but good to hear it's paying off!

adorable. And it's a good point you brig up. We spend so much time and money onthe bikini without focusing on what to wear over it. Chic beachwear (or poolwear) makes the world of difference when you're not soaking swimming or tanning. There's nothing worse than heading to the beach without a sleek coverup.

I like the look you pulled together.

Thanks Franki...a cute cover-up is def a beach/pool must. Thanks for the compliment!
