I’m not typically a short-shorts wearing girl, but for a day at the beach in 90 degree heat, showing a little more skin is necessary.

To maintain a sense of modesty, I layer sheer swimsuit cover-ups over shorter hemlines- preferably like this embellished one found on a recent Miami trip.

Embellished Swimsuit Cover-up: 6 Shore Road 
Tank: Forever 21
Bangles: Street Vendor, India
Straw Tote: Target
Shorts: c/o BeBop Clothing
Wedges: N.Y.L.A. via DSW (similar here in brown & here in black)
