The morning after the Jay-T (creatively coined by Arianna) concert, I woke up refreshed and ready for a trip to the beach with the girls. I think it’s important for you to know that my life lately is a bunch of little trips to the laundry room: one for towels one day, another for undies (not going to lie, I debate buying them. all. the. time. to get around this), most recently, my New Yorker huuuge beach towel and OP ‘kini. Which was fine, except that I forgot to wash the cover-up, too.
I could have dug it out of the laundry basket, but too be honest, it was too far down, and well, it might have smelled by the time I got my hands on it, so, thus kicking off my quest for a cover up.
I settled on a sized medium silk sleeveless shirt from Coldwater Creek. I’d gotten it from a preview, and even took pictures in it for the blog before realizing that the shirt was completely sheer. Clearly, I never posted those pictures, but the top did lend itself to be the perfect cover-up. Satisfied I throw that on with my bathing suit and then added a Mr. T-esque gold link necklace to complete the look. I filled my Old Navy beach bag with a book, sunnies, and sunblock before sliding my feet into my Missoni for Havianas flip flops and heading out the door to the 6 train that would take me down two stops to my friends.
“You headed to the beach?” A garage attendent asked when I walked by. “Yup! My first time at a New York one,” I told him smiling. “Have fun, you look nice.”
And I was going to feel nice soon with my feet in some sand… How do you like to get ready for the beach?
