Ocean Side OOTD

This past week I spent some time in Germany, visiting my grandma in Essen and then my family and best friend in the North. These photos were shot during a very cold walk by the sea. I didn’t last in the cold for more than 30 minutes, but I hope you enjoy this OOTD none the less.

I’m wearing:

J.Crew Sweater / Target Jeans / Doc MartensNew Look Beanie / H&M Scarf Free People Coat

I have been loving wearing high waisted jeans with cropped sweaters, because it’s the perfect way to show some form even in the dead of winter. And, the high waistline hides my little winter budge. A win/win if you ask me! :) Truthfully my ankles got a bit cold while shooting this, so I recommend warm socks (and gloves) if you are heading somewhere chilly.

It was magical being at the beach this day, even if it was freezing. Having grown up in LA, it can be tough not seeing any water other than the Seine for long periods of time. And, the sea always leaves me dreaming of summer. *Sigh*.

Anybody have any tips for staying warm in the freezing cold? My advice is layers layers layers, but sound off in the comments below if you have any extra tips and tricks! I always love to hear.

Much love,

  • You’re looking really nice! And i think the sea is the best on cold days, when it’s totally empty and you can warm up afterwards with some hot tea or chocolate.

      Thank you so much! Yes I agree, we (my best friend and I) enjoyed cheesecake and coffee in bed after returning home 😀
