Coverup: Sweetest Stitch (use code STYLECOLLECTIVE to get 10% off your order!) // Beach Bag: Target // Sandals: save; splurge // Sunglasses: Free People

I spent months trying to find the perfect swimsuit coverup. I searched on Amazon (can’t pass up free 2 day shipping!), but the reviews were always so bad. They were either way off on sizing or made really cheap. I also never had any luck looking at department stores for ones I liked. It’s always the same for swimsuits as well. I guess I’m just way too picky when it comes to items like this.

But then I came across Sweetest Stitch. I fell in love with all of their sundresses and rompers. They also have a lot of great prices! Make sure you use code STYLECOLLECTIVE to save an additional 10% off your purchase. I originally ordered this black dress to wear to a BBQ (I love the stitching details on the front!), but it ended up being a tad too short for my liking, so I decided to wear it as a swimsuit coverup instead, and it worked out perfectly! It made me realize that you can literally turn any clothing item into a swimsuit coverup, whether it be a dress or an oversized t-shirt. Just because it doesn’t say “swimsuit coverup” on the tag, doesn’t mean you can’t make it one! Also, what I love about this coverup is that I can throw on a pair of  white pants or jean shorts to go to dinner right after a day at the beach, and still look put together!

Everything in linked above. I purchased the Tory Burch dups last year from Payless (one of the best sandal purchases, ever!), but they are currently sold out so I tagged similar ones.

On a different note, did anyone know that they weren’t going to show The Bachelorette on Monday night!? I went to watch it Tuesday, and realized it was a repeat! I was a little upset, why didn’t they say something last week? Oh well, I guess I have to wait another week now. Do you have a favorite yet? Let me know in the comments below! I’m still torn between a few guys.

Have a great week, and thanks for reading!

Happy 4th of July weekend! Do you have fun plans this weekend? Sadly, it is going to be raining in STL today, tomorrow, AND Monday. They are calling for 3-4 inches of rain. UM, WHAT? My plans for BBQing and swimming went out the window. Hopefully the fireworks won’t be canceled!

But if you don’t live in the STL area, and plan on going to a BBQ celebrating the 4th, I have you covered on what to wear, while also feeling festive! My favorite thing to wear to a BBQ over the summer is shorts and a tank. Since it is 4th of July weekend, I went with the red white and blue theme. Most of the items I’m wearing are sold out, so I tagged similar ones above. The wedges are currently on sale for under $15!

Another one of my favorite things to wear to a BBQ is a dress. This chambray one is perfect for 4th of July! I love how it is off the shoulder (a huge trend this summer). Just add a red or blue crossbody and wedges, and you are good to go!

Have a fun and safe weekend, everyone! Let me know what your plans are in the comments below. As always, thanks for reading!
