It's been a couple of weeks since I've done a beach related post, and since it's basically my favorite place to spend my free time, I thought it was about time for another one ;). Though I spend almost every summer weekend at the beach, being a New Yorker means the number of beach weekends I have are limited; so I don't like to spend a fortune on items that I will only be able to wear for 2-3 months and then will have to store away.  Today's post features some of my favorite beach cover ups at budget prices...

When heading out to the beach, I think having a cute cover up is just as important as the bathing suit underneath. I love wearing romper styles because I can easily go from the beach to whatever my next errand or activity is for that day.  A tunic dress or caftan is another favorite cover up of mine.  These styles are great to keep you a little more covered up or act as a great layer when the wind picks up.  Add some cute sandals, sunglasses & a beach tote and you're out the door! Don't forget the sunscreen :)
