Find of the Week: A Pretty and Modest Beach Cover Up

Over the next few weeks we will launched some reorganized posts.  Today, we start by replacing our “Client Pick” and “My World” posts with “Find of the Week.”  Every Thursday we will feature one seasonal item that will meet an immediate need.  These items are either items we have picked up or helped clients find. 

Find of the Week A Modest Coverup

Coverup, $29.50 (xxs – xxl)

When did it become standard for a beach cover up to cost over $100??  On occasion, like when we went to Hawaii, I splurged on a super chic coverup.  But, in some cases, you could spend multiple $100s and not even be covered.  (Example #1,  #2, and this disaster that made me laugh out loud  #3.) If they are not overpriced, and inappropriate, many look too junior.  I’d like a little more coverage than what you get from most rompers and tank dresses. I feel like life between shopping the Delia’s catalog and rocking Golden Girls caftans is underwhelming and confusing.

This summer, it’s been extra difficult to find something that covers my every expanding rear end, but still looks pretty and updated. I just want something to wear while I work by the pool (thank you wifi), grab a casual lunch at the beach, and go to happy hour at our club. I’ve had luck in the past with La Blanca. I own this in navy and love it, but I don’t want always to have to spend.

Last week I was in J.Crew Factory (or Mercantile depending on where you live) and picked up this bright and preppy tunic that is the stuff of my beach cover up dreams.  With it’s 3/4 sleeve, v-neck opening, and straight tunic cut, it’s finished but not fussy.  It fits comfortably and covers my backside.  The best part?  It’s under $30 available in xxs- xxl.

There will be no post tomorrow as we are doing some routine maintenance and making some updates. We’ll be back on Monday with our regular daily content.  

Have a great weekend!!
