I love going to the beach, and I'm fortunate that I can visit year-round. It's about a 45 minute drive, which I'll gladly do whenever the mood strikes. Happy, sad, reflective, excited - any excuse to sit with sand between my toes. Except, there's always that lingering question of "what do I wear?"

Wearing // Tobi sweater c/o, Asos skirt, Mia flats, Gifted bag

We've had a warm spell these last few days but it does inevitably get chilly in the evenings. This is especially true on the coast, where the breeze may look pretty in pictures but is often uncomfortably windy in real life!

Enter this swingy, cozy-as-can-be sweater from Tobi. I love the length, as it's longer in the back and a bit cropped in the front. I styled it here with a rose colored skirt, but it would look just as cute with denim shorts, distressed jeans, or even on top of a little dress. It's that perfect piece to pack in your beach bag to pull out once the sun goes down. In fact, we are going to the beach next weekend and you can bet I'll be wearing this.


  1. love this cute and girly look, what a pretty sweater.


  2. Such a cute and cozy sweater! Loved your pics from Ocotillo Wells this weekend and hope you take some more from the beach next weekend!

  3. That is such a cute sweater! I love the fuzzy material and hem. I just got one like that, and I think the higher curved front hem is so flattering. The blush skirt is such a fun pairing.

  4. I'm happy you don't let a 45 minute drive come between you and the beach. While I think it might be a Connecticut thing, I find most people here would consider any drive more than 20 minutes an inconvenience. I know if the beach were ever more than five minutes from me I'd hardly ever go. But I suppose when it takes days to drive across your own state and the traffic is the worst in the country, a 45 minute drive is seen much differently.

    1. Haha yes, it takes forever to get anywhere in California! So 45 min is nothing! I think I’ve gotten used to having to drive everywhere but I totally get how people in other states think we are crazy here! I mean we kind of are ;)

  5. That sweater is gorgeous and it looks so soft! I love how it looks paired with your pink skirt!

  6. Such a cute sweater - and I love the skirt!
