Swimsuit Dreamin’

Since I’ll be taking a vacation at the beach in a couple months I needed to get a swimsuit – or two.  I found some bottoms from J Crew on major, MAJOR sale (this particular one shown below was 19.99 after the additional 40% off).  I love the mix & match look of a solid top or bottom with a printed opposite.  I will be spending the next few weekends trying to find the perfect solid black top to complement the bottoms that I ordered.  I really like this black top and would love to find something similar.  I’m on a mission!

I put together a visual packing list of what I will need to take to the beach; it helps me to know what else I need to get.  On the list?  A floppy hat, beach shoes, and a cover-up.  There are so many options for cover-ups now.  The market is saturated with choices.  I really like the sheer sundress or tunic looks because they are so easy to throw on and jet into a store or have lunch on a patio without feeling like you don’t actually have clothes on.  On the other hand, I love the original sarong style cover that can be worn just to cover the hips or tied higher to cover the entire chest and torso.  These large scarves are usually bright and bold with so many patterns and colors to choose from.  It’s an additional accessory to your swimsuit rather than hiding it.  This particular one shown below is a large scarf from H&M specifically for that purpose.  Any other ideas?
