It’s April. While that may still mean colder weather if you live up north, here in Florida we are out walking the beaches and even beginning to stick our toes in the surf. Chilly and refreshing, we know that will give way in short time to hotter air, brighter sun, and warmer more welcoming waters.
This means ditching the jeans and long sleeve shirts in favor of bikinis and one-piece swimsuits. No matter what style you rock this summer it is all about feeling comfortable in your own skin. You want to be able to enjoy the beautiful tropics we live in and not be concerned with tugging at and readjusting your bathing suit all day.
Having the right cover up can make a world of difference.
These beautiful knit and crochet options let the breeze flow right on through while visually offering a lovely camouflage effect as well as holding in a little warmth which can be needed in the mornings and at dusk on the Florida beaches especially if the wind picks up.
Ladies, we all know that bathing suit and cover up shopping can be trying. When you do finally find just that right swimsuit you know it. It flatters your figure and feels good on. The same goes for cover ups, shawls, and wraps.
Being able to create your own coverups, shawls, and wraps is amazingly freeing. You can now find that ideal suit and create the matching piece yourself. You choose the style, the yarn color, the yarn weight, even add some bling to it with silver or gold threading as with my Be So Blingy Yarns, or even introduce some bead work to it. These wonderful shawl patterns are versatile. They can be worn on the shoulders or draped loosely around your hips.
These are not your average beach throw on pieces though. Although they serve the same function; they are statement pieces.
So, this year with just a little forethought you can create your very own beachwear the way only you can. Your style, your fit, your color choice.
