Sand and ice

Today is my last beach vacation inspired outfit, and I decided to steal a color pallet from the sand itself. Seemed like a good idea at the time, but now I'm thinking "Really? Four shades of brown? That is the best you've got?"

Sand & Ice
And boots?? Boots are not beachy at all. Boots were poor shoe choice. I think the new orange Seyschelles would have been a better choice. And a gold cardigan instead of the brown.
Oh well. Next time, I guess.

At least I'm pleased with my necklace choices; I love the way the white one is built like a net of beads and has a nice drape. It does feel like summer.

  16. The brown cardi almost has a cognac tinge to it. I imagine there's a good beachy tropical drink with cognac. Or, maybe not-so-much a mixed drink ingredient? (I'm trying to stick to your beach theme here. I apologize if you don't drink) I like the cardi belted!

  35. The Seychelles would have been great but boots aren't always bad for the beach, especially if it happens to be cold and rainy :( I love your necklaces and these colors together. I think neutral/monochrome is always very sophisticated!

    all the best
