It’s very hard for me to find a swimsuit coverup that I like. I don’t want anything bulky, too sheer, too long or short, too revealing or not covering enough and most importantly, I don’t want to pay for one when I use it but a few times a year. I do really love sarongs, which I call lava-lavas for some reason, but again, I don’t want to pay for one and I’m too lazy to make my own. So what is the perfect solution? Remember that lightweight winter/spring scarf you loved wearing to spice up your outfit and warm you up? Well don’t pack it away just yet. It’s the perfect length and fabric for a cute coverup. The scarf/cover up is from my spring look earlier this year.
You can wrap it many ways. Sometimes I just do the traditional around the hips, but since we were going to eat before going to the river, I like a dress look. Try not to use safety pins because it’s supposed to be quick and easy. By twisting the corners, it creates a clean line and makes it easy to tie around the neck. Once these scarfs unravel they have a good width about them that covers well. I have one that’s very wide and makes for a full length sarong. Any color goes really. It’s fun and creative and already in your closet. I like to drape the back a little to create a little sexiness. Play around to find your perfect style.
Ready to float the river! My tan lines are crazy! Floppy, cowboy and straw hats are perfect to keep harsh rays off your face. We don’t want wrinkles ladies. I like a simple braid to keep hair off my face and dewy natural makeup that won’t be so dramatic when the water or sweat washes it away.
