Today I am sharing a collection of artistic photographs of my favorite swimsuit cover-up. A sheer, vintage dress, like the orange floral one I am wearing today, thrown over a bikini is my uniform of choice when I am out in the Hamptons or vacationing in a beach locale. The photos from today’s Sheer Swimsuit Cover-up OOTD are from my first shoot with Eraj Asadi. These were taken last summer, just after I dyed my hair RED. (Going red was an impulse decision that I immediately regretted.) Since then, Eraj and I have been able to collaborate many times and he has become one of the most beloved photographers on my blog.
When we shot these photos last summer, it was on one of the hottest days of the year. To stay cool, I opted not to wear a bikini underneath and instead let all of the focus be on the beautiful floral print of the sheer vintage dress. Vintage dresses like these make the perfect cover-ups, because they are so unexpected and unique. I also love how elegant and old-hollyood they make me feel, even when I’m just lounging about by the pool or making my morning coffee. One of the only things I liked about having red hair was how it made accessories pop; the gold ear cuff and necklace I am wearing today shine brightly against my auburn hair.
