It was a typical, cool foggy morning. I grabbed my faithful denim jacket, hopped in the car and drove a few miles to Bree’s house. Greeted by a welcoming smile, a hot cup of coffee and the comforting scent of a jasmine candle, I was reminded of why I love living in our little coastal town. Each neighborhood has its charm and Bree’s made the perfect setting for today’s photos.
The Coastal Town Summer Outfit
Living near the ocean, the weather changes quickly. Thick clouds of fog roll inland in the morning, then dissipate in the blink of an eye, revealing the sun’s intense rays rapidly heating your body. As a result, us beach side Californians need to always be prepared with layers. A light-weight shirt, shorts and a thin jacket make the perfect coastal town summer outfit.
The Stripe Shirt
A stripe shirt is a classic, which fits in our coastal town, where almost everything is timeless. This shirt from the Sweetest Stitch is the perfect, classic stripe shirt for summer. From the color, to the lightweight material, it can pair with just about anything and everything. To create a beach town look, I paired the shirt with white, cut-off denim shorts and gold gladiator sandals for a pop of color. To top it off, I added my favorite denim jacket as a layering piece to stay warm in the cool, morning fog.
