I know what you’re thinking… who wears a cover-up as a dress? And why would you do that? When a cover-up is as beautiful as this one, by Calypso St. Barth, it begs to be seen on the street just as much as around the pool. Since the material is so sheer, I simply donned a nude slip (although I went back and forth on whether white looked better), and these adorable and, more importantly, comfortable sandals and out the door I went. I admit that I did not head out the door in this to do my grocery shopping, but I did wear it to lunch as well as dinner, and I wasn’t at a resort at the time!
This adds to the philosophy of getting more bang for your buck when it comes to the occupants of your closet. Accessories like fun necklaces, a cute bag, and great shoes allow for the transition from poolside caftan to city-chic dress; this makes it as easy to wear as it to look at. Try it… you will like it!
