cover it up.

Happy Tuesday, everyone! With my work trip to Miami on the horizon this week, I wanted to do a little research on sassy beach cover-ups. In true sun savvy fashion, here are eight fabulous numbers which I'd be more than happy to sport this summer...


{find them: purple - red - green - cobalt - gray - white - navy - yellow}

I always have my eye out for a great cover-up, so I know these beauties only touch the tip of the iceberg. The brand Mott 50 takes it to another level and creates clothing with UPF50 to help block out the sun's harmful rays. I've learned to take my cover-up seriously. There are plenty of options which can keep you looking fabulous while you're being sun savvy at the same time. 

I'm excited to hear about all the places you find your best cover-ups--because goodness knows, I can't fork out $200 for a cover-up, even if they're pretty ;) In the past, my best finds have come from Target, Old Navy, and eBay {yes, eBay! Think Shoshanna at a super discount!}. Many thanks for the advice, friends! Have a fantastic Tuesday!

  1. I love all of these! My boyfriend and I are heading on a cruise in a few weeks, and I've been searching for a cover-up. Old Navy definitely has a few cute ones right now, and I really want a Cape Madras tunic!

  3. That yellow dress deserves to be on my body immediately. And I've always been a fan of wearing men's button downs as cover ups. Covers my bum and chest and arms but looks relaxed!

  8. Thank you so much for posting this! I'm going to Rome to study abroad this summer and the first day we're going to a Meditteran beach. I want to make a good first impression, so I need a cute cover-up in case it's chilly that day.
