Cute Beach Coverups that Double as Dresses

Who says hitting the beach is just about lounging around in your swimsuit, soaking up the sun? For midlife mamas like me and maybe you,  it’s more about strolling along the sand, checking out the cute beach boutiques, and grabbing lunch with an ocean view. And, of course, who doesn’t appreciate a little extra coverage for that?
