What to Wear to the Beach at Christmas

The lul between Christmas and New Years is an odd one. my day job is a barista so I’ll be at work for a few days before ringing in the New Year with my family. What are your plans over the lul Between New Years?

Let’s talk about the outfit, shall we? The cardigan I bought while I was in Mallorca from Desigual is an absolute dream. Possibly the best cardigan I’ve ever owned. The bright animal print is a perfect example of a twist on a classic. I had visions of shooting this cardigan as a beach look as soon as I bought it. Who knew that it would be mum and I freezing our butts off on Christmas Eve by the pier to get the shots. I really didn’t plan for there to be so much wind.

A cardigan so bright deserves to stand out as the focal point of your outfit. I paired it with a pair of straight cut off jeans and a simple black T-shirt. A pair of nude trainers and my favourite fluffy handbag. Simple and relaxed styling for a Christmas eve shoot.

Cycle Shorts

Cycle Shorts trending since before the last month of fashion week. Variations of cycle shorts are all around right now. I’m not 100% sold on them but they look amazing on other people. Leonie Hanne and Chiara look incredible. Worn as a muted look with a white dress shirt, vintage Gucci slides and a cream hand made cable knit cardigan. The vintage/Parisian theme is highlighted with a tortoiseshell sunglass.
