Today’s #MyGoodwillFind is One Size Fits Fall printed elastic and flowy dress cover-up that hits above the knee. The top part will fit most body types since the elastic is all around the back and bust area.

I’d prefer to wear this dress as a cover-up at the pool or beach because of it’s easy to put on spaghetti straps and the light nature of the fabric. In the wind, sand will blow out of it easily because the fabric is so loose.

The best part of this dress is that it’s inspired by Indian culture, hailing from a small boutique. The print reminds me of vintage resort wear in silk shirts, just in a more modern style of clothing.

For one last summer hurrah. I’d style this dress with a fan straw chic oversized tote to store all my pool supplies. A bag this size is roomy enough to carry a towel, sunnies, shoes, and everything in between to bring to the poolside. And if you’re not feeling a large tote, a small straw clutch is your friend as well! The sand will fall right out of it, and they’re light to bring around town.

With a versatile purse, every fashionista needs a pair of practical yet stylish shoes to be able to walk far while toting a load of items. I think gladiator sandals will do just the trick. Sand will fall right out, plus, they’re relatively easy to buckle on and off.

You can’t have a complete beachy look without some bling! Because the summer sun is still out, gold toned necklaces, earrings and bracelets will glisten in the sunshine. If gold doesn’t match your skin tone, silver works too as well, but I’d recommend picking silver-toned pieces that contain  warmed colored elements like stones and other materials. For example, try experimenting with a silver dangly earring with jade or turquoise. Gems like this can actually be found at DC Goodwill stores for under $10!

How would you rock today’s unique India dress, fashionistas? Would you wear this by the water?
