With summer kicking into full gear here in Charleston, it is time to hit the beach or lounge by your favorite hotel pool. Covering up appropriately is important, because surely there will be lunch or after-drinks. This is a photo Alistair Guy took of me in 2010 for Elle UK coming back from the beach at Portals Nous in Mallorca. I stole the top from my mom and tied it to show some (appropriate!) skin with a pair of basic canvas J.Crew shorts. The orange canvas tote is a perfect bright color for the beach. Since this is 2010 and it is now 2012, I would probably opt for a more rounded sunglasses though. Otherwise, this outfit is great for covering up from the beach/pool.
I do not own this photo.
