beach uniform // cover ups

Right now I am most likely lying on the sand sipping some sort of mexican cocktail and just plain old relaxing. I thought I would stick to something vacation inspired to share with you guys today in honor of that!

One of the things I am horrible at planning and packing for is cover ups. I really hate the thought of paying for something that gets worn from the hotel room on the walk to the pool or beach, then tossed in a bag. So I am loving all of these ladies sporting day wear as their cover up. Tees, dresses and frilly tops are perfect. Why didn't I think of this and just raid my own closet?

What do you gals usually wear on vacation? Do you splurge on cover ups or just pull from what you packed to wear during your days and nights not spent near the water?
