How do you find a flattering beach cover up? Primark of course! I fell in love with this embroidered, bell sleeve beach cover up as soon as I saw it. I HAD TO HAVE IT for my birthday trip to Aruba.

Have you noticed that cover ups are often awkward or can’t get wet or too hot or are just not cute? I don’t want to look frumpy on my first solo vacation. I want a cover up that looks sophisticated and flattering but is still lots of fun!

So, when I found this off-the-shoulder, bell sleeve beach cover up after a day of searching the mall it seemed like destiny! I want to wear it everywhere. Just a smidge longer and I’d wear it as a dress to dinner. I love the colors and the beachy feel. Plus, it’s only $20 (which is actually expensive at Primark.)  What do you think? Could I pass this off as a mini dress?

I want to wear it everywhere. I felt pretty walking around the massive lobby (more on that later) and sophisticated sipping cocktails by the pool. If I’m being honest,  a white cover up seems like trouble, but the sand brushes right off, I haven’t spilled, and it doesn’t feel embarrassingly sheer. I wish it was just a smidge longer, I would have worn it as a dress to dinner. I love the colors and it’s beachy feel. Plus, it’s a steal at only $20!

Can I pass it off as a mini-dress? No?

Unfortunately, Primark doesn’t offer online shopping (what year is it?) so if you can’t make it to Boston to shop, I’ve included my picks for similar styles below. My favorite is this bell sleeve beach cover up by Elan  (Bonus: It’s currently on sale!)Beach Cover UpShot at the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino on July 10th, 2017.
