The Perfect Beach & Pool Cover-up

The perfect beach & pool cover-up

Cover-up: Athleta c/o (on major sale) | Bikini Top: Triangl c/o | Bikini Bottoms: L*Space | Bag: Banana Republic c/o | Shoes: Loeffler Randall (on sale) | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Earrings: Anthropologie | Rings: Colombia, Tiffany & Co. | Bracelets: Gifted, gorjana c/o

I never realized the importance of owning a cover-up (maybe because I grew up in San Francisco, where we rarely get the weather that merits wearing one). When I spotted this one on Athleta, I knew it had to come with me on my summer trip to Spain. As it turns out, I apparently have a thing for all-things-blue this summer (as you’ll see in the next few posts) and the color of this cover-up definitely does not disappoint. It’s comfortable, light, sexy, and full of details. Plus, it’s now on sale – hooray for you!

Summer Vacation: Packing Begins

Packing for Summer Vacation with Athleta

Tank Top: Athleta c/o | Workout Shorts: Athleta c/o | Sports Bra: Equinox | Denim Jacket: Levi’s | Shoes: Nike | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban | Earrings: Anthropologie | Bracelet: Gorjana c/o | Rings: Colombia, Tiffany & Co. | Gold Polka Dot iPhone Case: Kate Spade

In exactly a month from today, I head out to Spain for two weeks – my first time in Europe! For my trip to Spain, my goal is to fit everything in my carry-on suitcase and a shoulder bag/purse – which means, inevitably, I’m going to have to get crafty with my outfits and bring pieces that:

a) I can easily mix-and-match

b) I can wear for multiple occasions, such as sight-seeing during the day, working out, as a cover-up at the beach (don’t worry – I’ll have access to a washer and dryer!)

c) Can be rolled up tight, making room for my bulkier items (running shoes, flats, makeup, toiletries)

And that’s why I LOVE the pieces that I snagged from Athleta recently. I find that their merchandise not only works great for building up a sweat at the gym, but are also super simple to style with other pieces in my closet. I’m obsessed with this tank, which I know I’ll be wearing all the time in Spain and these shorts are perfect for walking through Barcelona and running on the beaches of Menorca and Mallorca.

As I was planning outfits to pack, I couldn’t help but slip into one of them for my walk around San Francisco!

Who would ever spend five years on the hunt for a piece of clothing? ME. And I’m so glad the search is over! I have been dreaming about owning the perfect leather jacket that wouldn’t break the bank (read: $200-300), but the ones that I ended up liking were well over $500 or the ones I would find in my price range would be brands I wasn’t familiar with and, therefore, wasn’t sure what the leather would be like. My co-workers recently introduced me to Muubaa and that’s where this story ends. Within two weeks, I bought not one, but two leather jackets that were on major sale (the second is the one that I shared on Instagram recently). Am I officially a San Franciscan now or what?

PS: Speaking of SF, I’m obsessed with these earrings that my boyfriend gifted me with. Can you tell what they are of in the last photo of this post? A map of the city of San Francisco! <3
