When the sun starts to shine, I get googly eyes for summer vacation. I don't even get a summer vacation anymore and I'm over here drooling thinking about lazy days with no work, endless beaches and swimming until your skin is tired of salt, sunscreen, and sunshine boring into it. Planning our wedding in Hawaii means that I get at least two quality hours of googling images of Oahu beaches and resort pools. That can't be healthy for the Portland-bound girl that I am. Or my Portland-bound computer that's forced to conjure up amazing beach photos for me every day. Sorry, computer!
I got this beach cover up from SwimOutlet with my future resort-going days in mind. They may not be for another year, but judging by the weather changes here lately, this isn't going to be getting heavy use until that sunny March 2015 vacation we have planned. One of my favorite things about beach cover ups is that they let the breeze in, but they also give you some skin coverage just in case you're starting to get pink and toasty. In Hawaii a beach cover-up in considered being dressed up, so you can actually go out to dinner in them, bathing suit top soaking through and all. I'm not sure if that's a pro or a con for Hawaii style but it certainly makes it easy!
Do you have resort plans in your future? What do you wear that does double duty on the beach and off?
P.S. I uploaded this look to the swim outlet fashion showcase online. If you pick something up for your summer plans, be sure to do so as well!
