Soak Up the Last of Summer with Super-Cute Sweats

Written on August 22, 2013 at 3:39 pm , by

We hate to be those people, but we’ve just come to the realization that our beloved summer nights are numbered. Being the beach bums that we are,  we’re not ready to ditch our bikinis and flip-flops yet, so we’ve taken to wearing our comfies on the beach when the sun starts to set and the salty air gets breezy.

But comfy doesn’t have to be frumpy. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite sweatshirts for you to keep warm in for those last few bonfires on the beach. All you have to do is throw one on over your favorite bikini (we’re obsessed with everything L*Space), and pair with denim cutoffs, for the perfect low maintenance, beachy-chic look.

The Boys of Summer

It’s that time of year in NYC when everyone is restless and so over winter. We’re all chomping at the bit for warmer weather. I’m not gonna lie—I’m a total beach bum. The last week I’ve been working on swimsuits for our July/August cover shoot, strategizing over what cool sporty bikini will look best on our cover girl. But yesterday when the temperature hit that 70* mark I was ready to start thinking about what I’d like to be wearing on the beach in Miami while I stand behind the scenes of the Fitness cover shoot. It’s an easy answer after my meeting with the Faherty twins. They just launched a brand of swimsuits that is everything I love: surf-inspired, in yummy mixable prints, that give killer coverage for an active girl (running back and forth between wardrobe changes requires a suit that keeps my girls put!). I should also mention that the brand offers the softest swimsuit fabrics I’ve come across so far.

So this morning before getting to work I went on fahertybrand.com and ordered my swimsuit for next week (this top, and this bottom..how cute?). I’m so ready for Miami—now I just have to wait for the Faherty’s to launch their T-shirts and rompers!
