Beach in the fall

I'm one of those weirdos who really likes how empty the beach is in the off seasons. It's just as beautiful, but so much more peaceful. (For the most part) I don't have to worry about people staring at me and my tripod, I can take all the time I want. No worries about finding parking or being in the way of someones picnic.

Even though I wont venture on to the sand with my tripod anymore, and the sun was a bit harsh for taking shots outside of the more shaded areas, I still love heading to the beach for my outfit photos this time of year.

Not to mention the weather was quite lovely for November, I could have easily been tricked into thinking it was actually mid September. (If only, 40 days until Christmas - -what?)

wow I'm green with envy! I've been looking for a fur collar exactly like yours! I almost bought one on ebay but it was a bit pricey, I have two fur collars but they are different from yours and your type is the one I want. =D Cute outfit, I wish I lived near the beach!

Love the flipped up cuffs on your jacket -- such a small but cute detail on this outfit!
(And yes, I agree re: your comment on my blog about Once Upon a Time. How shall they keep the plot moving once there really isn't a mystery curse in play? Maybe it will just take 3 seasons to defeat the curse? Kinda like shows where kids stay in high school for 7 years.)

La Fille D'or said...

Wow! I love these photos. But thinking of 40 degrees makes me chilly - it's 60 here and I'm in a coat...

SassyUptownChic said...

Lyddie, you are SMART girl! Take advantage of the peacefulness and weather. You got some great pics and I am ooh la la-ing over that jacket. FUR-rific!!! :D

Whatttt 40 days to Christmas? Don't even say that to me. The fur collar and jacket go amazingly well together-- I thought they were attached until I read your ingredients list. I've been in bare legs for two days now. Rather exciting :) I love your new bracelets, too.

The beach is still serene and beautiful regardless of the cold!

OMGosh is it really 40 days until Christmas??? Crazy! I love your great fur trimmed jacket, the socks and booties and great skirt. Your beach photos are awesome and it makes me already miss the California beaches I just left. :-(

The lighting is beautiful in your shots!

I love the winter-time (and fall-time) beach, too. Every year, Beefy and I go to the beach in Michigan in Nov or Dec. I love the snow-covered sand! And parking is free in the winter-time.

Style Journey said...

What a fabulous jacket. Your socks looks cute peeking out of your boots too. I grew up on the lake and found it was so much more peaceful during the winter months too. Heather

The ocean is a block away.
I don't think I have ever taken a picture there.
I absolutely adore the color combo on the socks and boots, its genius :)
I'm giving myself a small vacation, think I will be in CT over the weekend !

Lidiya said...

Even thought you could only use shady spots to take photos they all turned out lovely. That envelope clutch is too dang cute.
Cheers,

Meagan said...

I prefer going places when they are less crowded too and the beach is a great place to take pictures when it's empty. Gives the photos such a great feel. Loving your skirt!

love the pop of color your clutch adds to this outfit. I much prefer the beach on a fall day rather than a hot summer one when i have to deal with kids screaming and teens being well teens. :)

This is super pretty I love it when people 'toughen' up a little floral skirt. I've hidden most of mine away because you know... cold weather. But I might have to get a couple back out.

Amy Stewart said...

What a cute clutch! I just bought a super cute clutch at TJMaxx too. I was really surprised! :)

Melina said...

I adore the fur collar paired with that jacket! I only wish it would cool down a bit here so I could do the same without looking entirely insane. Also I really love how you paired those taller socks with the slouchy boots!

And again, eeee, I'm SO excited I won!!! Thank youu!! :)

xx Melina

Gah! I love that coat and those boots. How did you find such a cute coat thrifting!? I barely ever see any good ones...

Shea said...

So that's one good thing about the cooler weather, right? I love the boots + socks paired with the skirt--that and the jacket made this a perfect-for-fall look!
