After having two skin cancers dug out of me last year, I’m all about the cover ups! Also…at 42 my skin does not need any more damage. I swear, every day I find a new sun spot, and I hate them!! Much better than finding more skin cancer though…
All that to say…I’m a total fan of cute cover ups that have SPF built in, and SwimZip has SO many great options!
About a month and a half ago, they posted on their Instagram page that they were looking for bloggers to partner with. I jumped at the chance, and I couldn’t have been more thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them and shoot this adorable dress! I looooove the cinch tie side!! You can adjust it to the length you want, and the draping effect is super flattering! I got a medium. For reference, I’m 5′ 8″, but have a super long torso and no…well, no boobs to be blunt. I had considered getting a small, but was worried I would be too self-conscious about it being too tight. I’m so glad I got the size that I did! It may have looked baggy on me except for the cinching! All that to say, there’s some wiggle room.
And the thumb holes on the sleeves-love!! These are SO cute that I wanted to show how you could wear them day to night! You know when you are on vacation and you go straight from the pool to dinner? Ok, I don’t, because I want to go shower and change, BUT…you totally could with these if you didn’t have time!
What HAS happened to me? I am super careful during the day about sun protection. I lather up in sunscreen/and or wear cover ups, but then at night? I throw on a summer dress and that’s it. And then because the sun is still out, I get sun damage-GRRR!
Well, now I have another option! 🙂 Ps- I showed these to the Huz, because I was a liiiiiiittle nervous about this post showing too much skin and wanted a second opinion (so weird because I’ve done posts in cut offs and tanks, but…).
When he saw this next one he said “Woah…I want a copy of that one!”
So…as self conscious as I felt…he liked it, and on some level…I guess that’s all that matters 🙂
