The Personalized Beach Cover-Up... Round 2

FashionJan Correll1 Comment

Hope your weekend was great!  After a crazy few days... I started Monday with the slows.  Well, Monday dragged into Tuesday and I decided to turn it around by making various lists of to do's to get ahead of the rest of the week. I am planning a trip to the beach soon and so added a packing list as well. 

At the top of my list are bathing suits (yes plural) and beach cover-ups. I have a personalized cover-up!  Which brings me back to one of my favorite posts from last year.    I had planned to re-share this fun post for anyone that missed it last time.  So here you go...

I found this pretty white Ralph Lauren over-sized shirt last year at Belk on the sale rack and paid under $10 for it.  I felt it would make the best beach cover-up due to the light-weight cotton fabric.  I love the long sleeves, that can be rolled up or down depending on the weather or the sun. After I got home with it, I decided it needed something.  Being that I like personalization, I took it to my local embroidery boutique but due to the weight of the fabric, they talked me out of that idea.  Darn!  But they had another... they suggested I use screen printing to put my name on the back. I had not thought of that, but they assured me it would work great!  We went ahead with the plan and I can tell you I love the result!  In fact, I had three people ask me about the cover-up that very day on the beach.  Of course, I suggested they read about it on the blog!!  

Complimenting my cover-up is a cute fringe beach hat;  a fun find at the local Hilton Head TJ Maxx, and under $13. Whenever I'm at the beach, I always check their racks and usually find a thing or two for the wardrobe.  I am sure you can find a similar white shirt that could be used as cover-ups. TJ Maxx never disappoints.

Would you wear a personalized beach cover-up?  It sure makes it easy to find someone, especially over a busy holiday week!! :)  No Silver Alerts when looking for me.

Thanks for stopping by the blog and if your new.... welcome to my little piece of web real estate!   My goal is to share chic ageless style and endless fun, from a sincerely silver perspective.  Including  fashion, beauty, and relevant lifestyle information as we share this journey together!  Thank you for reading!
