Therefore I thought today would be a good day to wear some Team USA colors, especially since I recently thrifted this cute little beach cover-up with the idea it could be worn as a dress. However the tube top styling is a little hard to pull off unless you know, you are going to the beach... maybe I could rock-a-billy sport it while mowing the lawn or something, or if it was still in the 90s... but thankfully it is cooler today (had a lovely 4 mile run this 63 F morning. I still got sweaty, but you know, it was able to, like, evaporate, yay).
So even with a red bikini top underneath, rocking it as a dress is still a bit tough as I don't even have pool cleaning to use as an excuse since we didn't put ours back up after the move :( So today mostly I'm just wearing it as a jaunty navy blue terry cloth skirt. After trying a couple variations out, I settled on adding a t-shirt, continuing the patriotic theme with a red & white one featuring my favorite US state.
But not to deny the world of the splendor that is this cover-up, I took both a shy shot and a sassy shot.
Not 100% Thrifty, but...
* t-shirt from Des Moines, IA boutique (have had this several years now and will likely never get rid of it)
~ beach cover-up as a skirt, thrifted NWT Miken brand
* red bikini top, clearanced big box retail (it's the first clearance item I've bought in a looong time, and by my rules I don't count sportswear/swimwear/underwear as "not buying new" cheating, however I have thrifted items like that and didn't get cooties)
~ navy Keds, thrifted
