Punta Cana: DIY crochet beach cover

top & bottom: DIY  | bikini: Topshop | hat: Target  | sunglasses: Prada | necklace: Noble House Designs c/o







I made this swimsuit cover set days before I left. It was conceived out of frustration because the cover I ordered was due to arrive after my departure. I originally made the bottom with no intention of having a matching top but didn't want to waste the left over fabric. I love that it can serve double duty as a beach cover or as a regular skirt with the interchangeable and removable lining. When I first debuted it on Instagram, a longtime reader, Aubrey, suggested I post a fourth photo having nothing underneath with caption "now serving 3x duty as naughty housewife apparel." lol. The skirt is available for purchase on Etsy (here), whichever way you choose to wear it is up to you! :)

*photos were taken on Paradisus Palma Real Resort.
