The Cover Up

I love swim cover ups. I use them all the time by the pool and beach and just putting one on makes me think of summer. Happy times! If close friends are coming over and I’m feeling lazy I also will to throw one on. Just as comfortable as my ratty old pajamas but not nearly as visually offensive.

I like a kaftan/kurta style with some sleeve because it gives some sun coverage. This is one of my new favorite kurtas, from Roberta Roller Rabbit, taken at The Carneros Inn last weekend.

With all the sun, tan and sunscreen exposure, my coverups get thrashed after a few seasons so I always try to stock up on some more during end of summer sales (and there’s a ton going on right now). They come in handy when you go on holiday later in the year. Plus, when it’s cold and dreary in winter, looking at the colorful patterns in my closet reminds me of sunnier times!

What do you all use to cover up at the pool and beach?
