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.
Sand & Ice
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.

I like the boots, I live by the beach and in winter time I go walking along the boardwalk all the time in my boots :)

Sue said...

....and you still look fantastic in four shades of brown! Love the necklace.

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!

Great choice of neutrals that go together so well. That necklace looks very pretty. Hope the weather there gets almost 'beachy'.

Valerie said...

Looking at all the snow on the ground, I don't think the boots were a bad choice.

its perfectly sandy, very reminiscent of my fav lookbook looks over the past few moths, loving the muted pallets.

Alex Elizabeth said...

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!
