I purchased this prior to our vacation on Sanibel Island in February. I only got to use it once during that week since the weather mostly required jeans for our morning walks on the beach. But I know I'll get a lot of use from it when we head to NC this summer. It can be worn over a swim suit or just as a regular skirt. It runs true to size. Mine is the grey heather stripe. A coordinating piece was no longer available when I placed my order but I love it with my Coolibar solid color pink and blue tops.
