Dress for Success

My tips for walking the beach in the winter:

FOOT WEAR- sneakers do not work.  I wear hiking shoes (Merrell’s).  They keep my feet warm and dry, and provide better stability when I “hike” over the jetty rocks!

SOCKS- I’m a fan of Smart Wool socks.

PANTS- jeans are like sneakers…worn only when the weather is mild.  Thicker material is best- even if they still have the “mom jeans” look.

TURTLENECK- prefer those with a stretched out neck- to pull up when walking into the wind.

JACKET-  I wear an LL Bean ski jacket that I bought on sale years ago (with a hood, and inside pocket to keep my phone warm).  I like that it’s a bright color to contrast against the gray sand/sky.

HAT/GLOVES- some are warmer than others- depends on weather conditions.  If it’s really brutal, I wear a neck scrunchie that will partially cover my face.

Doesn’t this sound fun…not to mention fashionable??

Actually, it’s totally worth it for the views.  Plus I am motivated by my blog and Twitter followers expecting pictures 😉
