Interestingly enough, this is Ben and I’s first holiday where we have had the “time” to lounge around the pool. I was so excited that I could buy new swimsuits and cover ups and know I would put them to use. This white beauty was the first one I purchased for our trip. I have always wanted a long flowy cover up and white was my first choice because it is just so sophisticated! I told Benjamin that I bought it in faith that I would be able to wear it on hot holidays to come 😉 This is the type of cover that will never go out of style and can be thrown on over any bathing suit. It was so great to wear from our hotel room to the pool (kept me warm in the air conditioning). Side Note: I always find the walk from our room to the pool sooo awkward! Anyone else feel me on this? I’m so happy I won’t have to borrow Ben’s t-shirts anymore, hehe!
So, for this particular pool day, I wore the cover up over a pale pink two piece. Scroll to the bottom to see the full suit and amazing high waist! For accessories I chose a classic silver aviator, a gold woven flip flop and this AMAZING beach bag from H&M. I found this bag the weekend before we left for $15 and I couldn’t believe my luck! It has been the perfect bag!! It comes with a separate clutch on the inside that is attached so you can put the items you don’t want rolling around (cash, credit cards, sunglasses, lipgloss, etc) and the rest of it is wide open for larger items like towels, hats, sunscreen. It looks like my exact bag is sold out but I have attached very similar (and just as elegant) choices that are ON SALE too below!

My First Experience Purchasing from ASOS
I bought my swimsuit and cover up from ASOS. It was the first time I have ordered through this company and was excited to give the products a try! I ordered many items and found myself LOVING their swimsuits (they were a perfect fit and very true to size) but I was not impressed with the bag I received or the straw hat. I ended up returning those items along with a romper that I didn’t love. All in all I would definitely order through them as the return was simple and the cost was low (I did have to purchase the return price online and fill out a form before I went to the post office but it was very straight forward). Unfortunately duty fees were atrocious but because I loved my swimsuits and this cover up SO much I found it to be worth it! Of course, each to their own but wanted to share my thoughts as they may be of help to you ♥
