During the winter months I pretty much live in sweatpants. If I’m wearing jeans, you better believe I dressed up just for you. But more often than not, you’ll spot me in yoga-inspired bottoms, hoodies, and Uggs. Or pajamas—not gonna lie, sometimes I rock my fave flannels to school drop-off.
But in the summer, I have a different everyday uniform—one that’s just as relaxed, but a whole lot more chic.
Since I’m always at the pool, I tend to rock swim cover-ups from late morning to early evening. They’re comfortable. They’re cute. They’re fashionable and functional. They keep me cool and, yes, they hide the bits, pieces, and parts of mah body that I’m not 100 percent at peace with... yet.

I generally wear black bathing suits or bikinis (yes, I dare to bare—even though I’m not totally confident with my post-baby body)—so I like to add some color and perhaps a punchy print. And that's where a splashy sarong, cardigan, maxi, scarf, or tunic comes into play. This sheer pink and purple Pucci "pool dress" is my current obsession. Before you ask: I got it majorly on discount—the deal of the summer, if you ask me. All I have to do is add oversized shades, and I instantly feel glamorous.
I’ve rounded up eight easy-breezy cover-ups, in case you want to up your poolside style game, better your beachy-boho lounge look, or just change out of your pajamas into something acceptably chic and equally comfortable (no shame in that game!). Consider one of these flattering options—they pair perfectly with flip-flops or wedges—or slippers!
