The other day I was invited to a friend's club for a little adult-only swimming and lunch. (Can I just tell you how nice it was to have an uninterupted conversation that lasted about 3 hours!)
The first thing I thought was,
"I can't wear the same cover-up that I wear to my pool!"
So I grabbed a lightweight dress I picked up on our Jersey Shore vacation instead.
I started to think about it...what is a cover-up? Is it supposed to be obvious you just came from the beach or pool? Or is it something that is supposed to disguise the fact that your sitting in a swim suit? I tend to err on the side of modesty rather than....
Yes, that over-sized t-shirt is considered vintage according to Etsy. Want to shop more vintage 80s? Check out Midnight Flight.
Here are a few cover-ups that I found that would be suitable for beach, pool, or country club:
This is the Athleta Sugar Tunic is perfect for the early days of summer when it's warmer in the water than when you get out. Or bring it to the beach for the cool nights you have with bonfires.
Some cover-ups are more fitted like this Speedo Tie Front Cover-Up Dress so be sure to test them out over any suit that has a swim skirt.
A maxi dress is a great way to cover up at the beach or pool as well. This Xhilaration® Maxi Dress in yellow is fun and 'summery'. It also provides great coverage around the problem areas.
How do you cover up at the pool? Do you go for full-coverage or something a little more revealing?
