So I fell in love with all of the fun tasseled cover-ups that hit the internet last summer, but at over a hundy stick a pop they were not something that would ever enter my closet. Between how few days I spend at the beach or a pool every year and my limited clothing budget, dropping that much money on a coverup wasn't quite in the cards for me. That didn't stop me from drooling though ;) So when SheIn offered me this cute but much cheaper option I had to say yes! I can't wait to give it a spin - hopefully soon at the beach in Chicago, or definitely out in Las Vegas in a few weeks! Our rental Tahoe doesn't start until Sunday afternoon, so we decided to tag on two nights in Vegas to the start of the trip. And, because my husband is the most amazing human being ever, we decided as an anniversary present to each other to get tickets to see Britney Spears! Life goal (almost) accomplished. I'm not a huge Britney fan, but all of her music is so fun (plus it's Vegas) that I know it's going to be amazing.
But anyway, back to the coverup! Aren't the tassels fun? The original version was super over-sized, but I love that the sizing on this is a little more fitted - I'm not so into over-sized on me. I also love that it has longer sleeves. I'm super pale (in case you couldn't tell) so at the beach I'm always ducking to find cover under an umbrella - with these sleeves I can stay in the sun longer.
Oh and I have to throw in a note about my beach bag - it actually was from a blog giveaway way back in the day! I had just started reading blogs and thought why not enter, and lo and behold I won. I love this bag, partially because it's made of sailcloth so it can get wet but the inside stays dry, and partially because there are tons of pockets lining the inside of the bag - perfect for keeping all of your beach stuff organized. The bag is from Hayden Reis, and while they no longer have my bag in stock there are a ton of cute options, including this striped flamingo number.
I'll see you at the beach!
