Nautical attire for the Beach!!

Yesterday I got to go  to my favorite spot. Carmel by the sea. We had a wonderful day sitting on the beach listening to the waves. It was a really nice day, just cool enough for a light weight sweater or jacket.

I just got the cutest light weight cotton jacket from Urban Outfitters with a nautical vibe to it. It was the perfect jacket to take with me to the beach.

I love the rope and wooden toggle closure. Just a fun casual piece to wear to the beach.  Of course I did not wear it with these shorts. However I did wear it with some cute white cotton pants. I also had a navy tank with my navy and white checked shirt with a pop of a light weight yellow citron sweater. I was comfortable all day in this outfit.
Now I think I need to get a cute pair of navy Toms.

If you need a fun, really causal little cover up jacket this is darling on. I am really glad I purchased it. I see myself wearing this a lot.

It is fun to get little pieces like this to freshen up your wardrobe. I am in the midst of cleaning and purging my closet. I am taking out the winter clothes now that summer has finalllllly arrived and putting all my summer things into the closet.

More on that later. I will take you through my process…..

Have you purchased any cute pieces to pump up your summer wardrobe lately?

“Enjoy the Process!” Of:

Finding fun new pieces for your Summer Wardrobe!!

The jacket is adorable. love it.
Lucky you that it is cool on the beach. It is 90+ here. Where did winter go?
I am threatening to go to Australia for the summer, lol.
All kidding aside, I will go during the summer.
I love the TOMS shoes too, Kathysue. Such a great guy.
Have a great weekend.

Cute jacket!

I tend to spend the summer in Fresh Produce and Chicos.

Oversized button up shirts with tees and capris and of course the ubiquitous flip flops. Lake life is really very much laid back. I don't think I have ever seen anyone dressed up, not even for church.

I replenish the Fresh Produce, each Spring.

I love the FP big shirts in all colors and their capris are cute and comfortable. What more could I ask.

Chico's has wonderful tees I add to my FP garb.

This year, I bought a couple of vests, in the same style as the one I wore to the winery the other day.

I also keep a couple of denim jackets at home and the lake. Although, it rarely gets cool enough during Summer in Missouri, for a jacket.

I'd love to have a pair of Tom's, also. But, as I said, flip flops are my footwear of choice.

Such a cute jacket. I love Carmel. One of my very favorite spots. I don't think I knew you were in CA. I love all things stripes and nautical. Just found a cute striped nautical dress from the Daisy Shoppe. I think I need to force myself not to buy so many stripes at this point!

I love your cute little striped jacket! It's a lovely choice for the beach. And you reminded me that I need to go shopping these days! I haven't shopped for a while.

Have a wonderful weekend, Kathysue!

Love the jacket and it looks just like you. It is 113 here, so there is no way in the world I will put on a jacket of any kind. lol Sure wish I was by the beach or near one, even a pool would do. I miss my old one. Maybe Santa will bring me one. (NOT). Glad you had a fun day. Hugs, Marty

You need to show us your outfit, with you in it!
What a nice place to go to and enjoy the beach. I have never been to Carmel. I have been to Newport Beach and surounding areas.
Enjoy your weekend!

Love that jacket! The buttons remind me of a jacket that I loved to play dress up in from my mother's closet. Thanks for sharing.
