Summer Style at the Beach – what’s your cover?

I love beach cover-ups even if I’m not going to the beach.  In honour of the first official week of SUMMER here are some lovely ones to consider.

I like having a light little something to wear over my bathing suit.  Kind of like wearing a négligée to bed – not nearly naked. A little something to take off and put on again if there’s a breeze. These remind me of St-Tropez when I was in St. Tropez…that one time in my life….but still they remind me of there.  I’ve been wearing a lot of  neutrals this summer with a sprinkling of floral and more skirts and dresses so these all-white covers are so fresh looking, very pretty, flowy and romantic. Perfect for a beachy picnic. Careful not to spill the berries.beach3

Elegant long white lace summer beach dress 2015 with long wide sleeves, open back and side slits. This is your dress, if you are looking for a fancy beach cover up.

Casual short white lace beach summer dress 2015 with three quarter sleeves and wide neck.

Funny, as I’m posting these I’ve come to realize that I’ve been wearing more black this summer and more white this past winter. Proves there is no right or wrong anymore in fashion as long as the weight of the clothes fit the season.  Still working on the beach bod. By the end of this summer I’ll be perfect really good!


style – beach cover-ups

cover1We can’t wait to soak up the sun in our swimsuits and bikinis either at the beach or poolside, but there are times in these settings when we probably want to partially cover up our bod and suit. Times like when we’re walking to and from the car, visiting the restroom, grabbing a bite to eat, strolling along the beach, when it feels a little breezy, or when we’ve just had enough of exposing lots of skin.cover3

cover6Swimsuit coverups are all about looking chic on the sand, whether you opt for beach cover up dresses, a cover up tunic, shorts or a sarong. And if you happen to be in a seaside town, a fashionable womens beach cover up is a must for pre-beach brunches and post-beach cocktails. Depending on the kind of day and my mood, these are several that I like.cover4cover8cover2cover5

I really love the little white crocheted shirts and dresses.


Another one I think is just great is the Saress. I have two – one short and one long that I pack in my travel bag.saress1 - Copy
