Top Pick Thursdays: Beach-to-Bar Cover-Ups

Holy cow. I am in SO much pain today. I can barely take a step without cringing, I can't straighten out my legs, and the stairs are not my friends today.  When I sneezed this morning, I felt like my stomach was ripping apart. Ouch.

Last week, I started working out again but I REALLY kicked it up a notch this week by doing 2-a-days and O-M-G it hurts!  It's a good pain because I know I am toning up, but I think I have overdone myself.  No pain no gain I guess. Must. Tone. Up. For. Summer. And. Memorial. Weekend. {sigh} The life of a female...

But enough about me. How is YOUR morning going so far?  I can practically smell the weekend and it smells pretty sweet doesn't it? Do you have any traveling plans for this summer?  School is almost out and that means lots of family time and vacationing for us. YAY!

Last week, I posted about my TOP swimwear trend picks HERE and also featured a post about the CUTEST Anthropologie vintage-inspired swimsuits several weeks ago HERE. Now, the only thing missing is the PERFECT beach-to-bar cover-up. I don't know about you, but I can't imagine spending hundreds of dollars on a cover-up unless I can also wear it as an evening dress for dinner. I just don't have that kind of money laying around do you?  Plus, I would rather spend it on a nice pair of shoes. I am SO crushing on these hot AND affordable cover-ups from VS.  Oh summer days...I am counting down the days 'til we meet again.

MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE - $49.50
LOVE ROMPERS - $38
$59.50
LOVE THIS PATTERN - $59.50
$48
LOVE CROCHET - $59.50
A LITTLE PRICEY BUT WORTH IT - $88
LOVE THE HINT OF TURQUOISE - $68

SO many beautiful cover-ups! I like the first one and the other striped one. But my most favorite is the blue one. It's such a beautiful cover-up especially with the purple pom-pom details. I can imagine this turned into a nice little summer dress!
