5 ways to cover-up on the beach

This month Anna, Ann, Mary (our guest) and I are covering up on the beach. 5 ways to cover-up on the beach

Beach cover-ups are great for slipping over your bikini to grab a bite to eat at the BBQ, or a cocktail at the bar.

However, beach cover-ups in Scotland can be a totally different kettle of fish.
Scottish beach cover-ups tend to involve a fleece… or a waterproof!

So, in this post I’m showing you my “Real life on Elie beach” cover-up (above) alongside a beautiful (and a more traditional) kaftan sent to me by somerville scarves.

{I wasn’t paid to write about any items featured in this post. I only talk about things I really like.)

This kaftan is the softest cotton, and a delight to wear.
As for this paper panama hat?
Well, I just love it!

I’ve hardly had it off my head since it arrived.
I’m sure it will be on the blog many times… if I don’t wear it out first!

Of course this “Beach Outfit” hasn’t seen a real beach yet.
My real-life beach outfit was certainly not as chic, effortless or elegant.

It involved lugging windbreaks, packed lunches, flasks of tea, soggy towels, and buckets and spades …. all while wrestling with an excited dog, and chasing hats down the windy beach!
Maybe a serene beach break will be my next holiday?

Mary from Mary Murnane.

This is such a serene and simple look from Mary.
So beautiful.
I want to step through the photo and join her!

Anna from Anna’s Island Style

Anna’s strong swimmer’s body is doing it’s best to trick us into thinking she might be telling a porky pie about her 59 years!
This is how to rock a bikini and white ruffled minidress…. ageless and beautiful.
(Pop over to her blog to read more about the Loose Women campaign she is supporting.)

Ann from Kremb de la Kremb

Ann is no stranger to the beach, or the casual cover-up look.
Here she lounges with effortless ease in her casual fisherman’s jumper.
A pile of books by her side…. I wish I could join her for a cold beer and an hour (or two) of chillin’…. (does anyone “chill” anymore?!)

Swimsuit & Flipflops: Target

What are you covering up with on the beach?
Sheer cool cotton?
Or, a warm fleece?!
