Ahhh…. Summer is in full swing and vacation is on our minds!

I love going to the beach each year with my kids. We ride bikes, eat ice cream, watch movies under the stars, and swim. There is non-stop swimming, jumping waves, crab catching, seashell finding, and a little hope of “me time” reading a book under a sun umbrella.

Let’s face it, this beach trip means swimsuits everyday. I need cute Swimsuit Cover Ups to run around in. Especially since this will be my “uniform” for the week! So I ventured out looking for some adorable Swimsuit Cover Ups that I wouldn’t mind walking the beach or grabbing lunch in.

This Swimsuit Cover Up is perfect because it also gives you some protection from the sun. This style is a maxi cover up.  It’s feminine and a little bit of a tease, which is always fun to be a little playful at the beach.

Bright colors are in for swimsuits and so are bright Swimsuit Cover Ups.  If you are like me, who tends to lean towards a black swimsuit, a bright cover-up brings a punch to the plain black suit.

A Romper style Swimsuit Cover Up is adorable for any age. You can wear it like it is an outfit, pretty much all day!

Also, it makes it easier running around with the kids.

For a fancier twist to the Swimsuit Cover Up, a crochet Swimsuit Cover Up or a bright colored beautiful Swim Suit Blouse, will make you feel like the need for a little umbrella drink in your hand.

Ahhh,  how relaxing is that?!

So whether you are at the beach or the pool, a nice Swimsuit Cover Up is great to have on hand. Add a headpiece, bracelets, sun hat or fedora to complete your swim look.

You can find them anywhere these days, which makes it easy to make this look your own.

  1. I love the new look of your blog! And your swimsuit and coverup are so chic! Great photos. Hope you had a good vacation! I actually have that swimsuit pattern myself and I’m planning to make it this summer.

  2. I didn’t even know where to look or what varieties are out there. Thank u for the ideas! I am relieved I can cover up some stuff I want to hide but still look pretty!

  3. Great post!… Inspired me to order a new cover up today. :)

  4. What a great article and super cute coverups!

  5. Cute coverups! I keep several ones for vacations that compliment my swimsuits. My favorites are terry cloth.
