Cover up essential!

I believe the countdown to Spring break has started?! This is the 4-6 week time period where most of us hit the gym more often, give up sweets and (for the most strong willed) wine is eliminated from our diet! My family and I are heading to the beach and I can't wait for some vitamin D! I admit I have been working out a bit more and I have started to think about what new pieces of clothing and accessories I want for our trip! As a mom, I think one of the most important beach items is a great cover up.  I not only want to look good in my bathing suit, but also what covers it during the sand castle building, lunches by the pool and trips back to the room to grab the 20th item forgotten by one of my kids.

I fell in love with this Lem Lem coverup from Perch (Denver/Vail). The fabric is so light and soft and will be perfect for hot beach weather! Plus, it's beyond flattering and comfortable. Truly- a no-brainer purchase. I paired the cover up with Steve Madden stacked sneakers - a fun alternative to the expected flip flop or sandal. I can't get enough of this Antonello clutch (it's been in a few blogs at this point!) - it works for day and night and is a great staple for Spring (Perch Denver/Vail). Last touches - earrings (Henri Bendel) and bracelets (Jcrew, Kate Spade Gorjana) - also some blog repeats because they're that versatile!  Oh and yes, I wear jewelry at the beach--why not??
