Black for Spring: Ready for the Beach

Hope you all have had a great weekend!
Dress:  Babooshka Boutique (Available here)
Tonight I finish my series on how to incorporate black into your spring and summer wardrobes with a maxi dress that also doubles perfectly as a swimsuit cover.

It was less than 40 degrees today while I was taking these pics, so it is nowhere near swimsuit season in my part of the world.  But, for those of you who live in warmer climates or who are planning a spring vacay, this maxi dress is a great piece.
Swimsuit:  Torrid (Similar here
Sandals:  Target (Similar here and here)
Hat:  Target (Similar here and here)
This dress looks great with shorts or leggings underneath for easy lounge or street wear, but I love how it looks as a cover-up! 

It might be too cold here for a swim, but when warm weather finally hits, this girl will be READY!!!  ;-D
Necklace:  Ixora Boutique (No longer available on-line; see here
Sunglasses:  Prescription
Would you wear an oversized maxi for the beach or pool?

For the swimsuit in another post, see here.


  1. Yet another daring outfit of yours. Very nice maxi dress; while it's lovely it is pretty daring with the high slits. I see it more as a cover-up as well. Lovely hat and ankle-strap wedge espadrilles. Awesomeness.


  2. Thanks John! Now... if only the weather would cooperate!!!

  3. Girl, you have amazing legs! Dang!

  4. Love this one. Super sexy but totally laid back at the same time.


  5. Very lovely! Sexy but beachy and relaxed.

  6. Thank you! I am soooo ready for warm weather. It actually snowed here this morning, boo!

  7. Oh that's a great maxi cover up for summer, I'm on the hunt for one this summer. This is a great one for relaxing near the pool or the beach. I hope you have some spring weather soon! :)


  8. Thanks Nina! I love it! I'm actually thinking about wearing with jeans this weekend. It's warming up a bit, but not nearly enough!
