Alternative beach cover up : Free People beaded dress

August 26, 2014


You probably recognize it from my “5 Ways to Layer in the Summer” video but I never  got the chance to do an outfit post with it. I guess I was waiting for the perfect location and the right day. This weekend, my friend showed me this hidden cove that you can only get to by climbing down a steep cliff holding ropes Indiana Jones style. The water was warm and the rocky beach was abandoned. Wearing this beaded sheer beaded dress as a “beach cover up” was the best idea ever especially against the backdrop of those mossy green rocks that I continuously kept slipping over. Standing against the wind having the waves splash on me while the hot summer sun kept me warm was so worth the trip down the cliff with all my clothes in a backpack. Also … umm… this hat??? Best straw hat I’ve ever seen! My friend got this one in Paris and brought it back in both white and black. There were so many good photos from this day I couldn’t choose! This dress is just so photogenic.

    I have this same dress and I totally wore it as a cover up when I went to Hawaii and then I dressed up to go out to dinner the next night, such a fun versatile piece!

    These pictures are so stunning!
