We take a lot of day trips to the beach and lake during the summer, which means we’re in the car for a few hours at a time. Whenever I travel long distances, I always make sure to wear something comfortable. I’ve been looking for a beach cover-up recently but could only find ones with super thin or shear material. These are great for walking short walks to the beach but not for long car rides.

Cabana Life reached out to me recently, and I jumped at the chance to collaborate with them. I love their colorful prints, lightweight material and USB protective fabric. They’re mission focused and create products to help people have fun in the sun while protecting their skin.

The other day, we headed out to the country for an evening picnic and to watch the sun set. There’s nothing I love more than an evening picnic in the summer. It’s a casual and fun date night activity that we both enjoy. We brought hummus wraps with tomatoes and fresh mint and some fruit for dessert. Check out this post for my home-made hummus recipe and this post for other summer date night ideas.

Fit tip: I requested a size-xs since that’s what I typically wear, but Cabana Life sent me a size-small instead. I’m so glad they did, because it fits perfectly! I’m wearing the sunshine shores short sleeve shift dress. It’s flowy and easy to move around in…and it’s currently on sale. I especially like the simple pleated detailing on the back, and it has pockets.

The best thing about this beach cover-up is that you can wear it as a dress. It’s my go-to dress for casual outdoor activities, like a stroll through the park or an afternoon of fishing.
