This year I've tried a new item of apparel on holiday. Apparel, not Aperol, although yes, also tried. It was recommended to me that a man's shirt is a good pool cover up.
Thinking this a good idea I bought myself an extra long small necked white man's shirt. I chopped the collar to make a rough edged grandad collar. I chopped the cuffs to reduce bulk and now I have a pool cover up that is neutral in colour and well, does the job , and Mr Him has called 'chic, my dear.'
I have worn this shirt on this vacation for 2 days so far, to go to the pool and pool bar. It works. In fact I am very taken with the convenience and, if i say so myself, I do think an elegant solution now I'm here and wearing it.
I bought my shirt from M&S in the UK and it's available online. It's non iron and easy to wash out as required.
When we get back to the UK I may allow Mr Him to dip dye it make it more interesting. I'm thinking a dip of cream. I want to keep a neutral theme colour as it's more useful with patterned swimwear that way.
