SwimSpot: I'm Dreaming Of A Warm Summer

As much as I love winter's chilly weather, there are days when the warm breeze of summer creeps into my mind. I mean it is inevitable, right?
Just thinking about the beach and going on a cruise makes me feel anxious and excited for summer to come.

SwimSpot is a swimsuit boutique and online retailer. 
They recently launched their 2013 swimsuit collection which featured designers such as Ella Moss, Splendid, and Next by Athena.
I was ecstatic when Michelle emailed me about giving you guys a little sneak peek of the collection, I immediately agreed.


$145.00

Part of SwimSpot's 2013 swim collection - Ella Moss.
Chiffon material.
Slightly see-through.
Lightweight.
Very airy. 
Lots of room to move in.
Aztec/Zigzag patterns.
Colorful.
Good quality.

Michelle sent me the Caravan Tunic Cover Up from Ella Moss. I got it in medium so it's a perfect fit.
You'd want your cover up to be a bit loose on you since you'll be wearing it at the beach or by the pool.
This cover up is super pretty.
I love the Aztec-y print and the colors mesh really well together.
It is a bit pricey, but you have to remember that it's of extremely good quality.

I wore my orange bikini under since the cover up has a few orange tints to it.
I wanted to give it more of a summer-y vibe, so I accessorized it with pink, orange, and blue elastic bracelet charms along with a pair of brown bangles.
Another thing I love about this cover up is its versatility. 
It can be a beach cover up by day and a dress by night.
When I am at the beach, playing around and what not, I will be wearing a pair of black flip flops. 
But when it is time for dinner, all you have to do is exchange the flip flops with a nice pair of wedges and you're good to go!
I wore my Guess wedges for this outfit, just in case you guys would like to know. :)
