if you are looking for solitude, look no further than a sandy beach. preferably located on hilton head island. there’s nothing more soothing to your soul than listening to the waves lap onto the shore. add a morning sunrise, a brisk wind, sand squishing between your toes, and the day is off to a glorious start. as you can see from mr. style’s photos the beach was all but deserted on this chilly morning – a cool 55 degrees. but this girl is obsessed with the weather forecast (i thank the ever unpredictable nebraska for this habit of mine) and i packed accordingly. it was no trouble on my part to throw a striped cotton turtleneck into my luggage as well as a pair of faded blue jeans. and am i ever glad i did as i would have missed an invigorating walk on the beach. and the perfect way to start my day. that is, besides a cup of joe.
it is well with my soul.
happy hump day!

Love stripes and this is a pretty classy look for a stroll on the beach. Thanks for the sneak peek at the beach where I plan to be soon. We have beautiful beaches here in Michigan but right now you need a parka to walk along the beach! 🙂
i can’t wait to hear your thoughts on hilton head/savannah. michigan is beautiful but a lake (even a large one) is so different than the ocean. but each beautiful in their own way.
Being near the ocean is soothing to the soul, for sure. Nothing like a long walk along a beach for a serene way to start the day. Glad you got to enjoy! Classic sweater for the seaside.
there’s just something soothing about the waves rolling into shore! one of my absolute favorite things is a walk on the beach. add in a sunrise and it’s heaven on earth.
Walking the beach is one of the most relaxing activities. What is it about wearing blue and white that is so calming? I have tinnitus and use a noise maker at night and one of my favorite sounds is the ocean. So glad you and Mr Style got some R&R…we all need to recharge our batteries from time to time. xoxo
there is nothing more peaceful than a walk on the beach. we lived on an island for five years and a daily walk was part of my regimen.

ha ha! i bet it’s too hot in florida for a turtleneck. even if it is cotton.
We were just in the area and someone mentioned to hit Hilton Head but we didn’t have time. I love your outfit. That sweater looks so cozy.
next time you’re near hilton head make a pit stop. it’s absolutely gorgeous. and they keep the beachfront in pristine condition.
