Freckles in April: Covering My Assets

Covering My Assets

My parents spent Father's Day weekend in Florida jet skiing with dolphins and taking pictures of baby manatees. You know...the usual.

On Saturday my mom texted my sister and me-

Mom: "I don't recall ever seeing so many women just walking around town in bikinis."

Nikki: "I'm not even comfortable walking around in a bikini my own house."

We are a shy lot.

My current swimsuit cover-up is a dress I bought on clearance a few years ago at Kohl's. It works quite well but with the sun and chlorine and being shoved in suitcases, it's definitely starting to look a little worse for the wear. Here are a few cover-ups (all under $50!) I wouldn't mind picking up this summer-



ONE | My shoulders are by far my most burn-prone area, so I like a little shoulder coverage!

TWO | Linen! The quintessential summer fabric. I love this shape too. It's a little more forgiving. And heaven knows that's something I need when wearing a swimsuit.

THREE | I had a pair of pants just like this when I was a teenager. I LOVED them.

FOUR | Oh, J. Crew. The things you do.

FIVE | Can't you imagine this with a big hat and great pair of sunglasses?

SIX | Ummm I love this. Plus: $15!!

SEVEN | The infamous VS wrap. Because, obviously.

  1. Talk about timely! I read this post this morning & then saw the following video in my FB feed about a woman, Jessica Rey of Rey Swimwear, who is trying to put some modesty back into swimwear: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10201373174636163

  3. "Linen! The quintessential summer fabric. I love this shape too. It's a little more forgiving. And heaven knows that's something I need when wearing a swimsuit" Seriously?! Listen to me child, you have a beautiful body and you are as skinny as a pole! You could wear nothing and I'm sure you'd look great!
