During Spring, beach weather can quickly change from bright and sunny to cooler temps. Or it will even be both at the same time! I like to keep a few essential layering items on hand for beach style for cooler days. These can easily be paired with anything.
First, keep the colors neutral and light. As the sun peeks in and out from behind clouds, you won’t have to peel any layers off. Also bring a lightweight natural fiber sweater with an open knit. The wind is usually blowing at the beach, and you want a sweater that will breathe enough to keep you cool, but warm enough to protect you from wind chill. This can be a tricky balance to find. A wide-brimmed floppy hat keeps the sun off your face, which is especially useful when taking a nap on the beach or collecting seashells. The wide brim will protect both your face and your neck. I also like to bring a cute scarf that can double as a pillow or blanket if it needs to. I love this one because it has little pom poms on the ends. Chose to wear soft shorts that are easy to move in, don’t show water marks well, and lose sand easily. If you’re walking on the beach, don’t forget to wear sandals. You don’t really know what’s just under the sand and could cut your feet. Seashells can be sharp!
It’s not really a beach style necessity for cool weather, but I’m wild about seashell colored nail polish right now. I just love this shimmery shade of pearl. Chris was joking the other day that we’ve been dating for a year and a half and he’s never really seen my nails. It’s true! I love color and painting, so I’m always putting a little color on them.
