One of the things I love about a fall beach trip is transitioning with beautiful autumn colors.  To make this easy, I’ve chosen all the clothes and accessories from Madewell.  And even better…all the pieces can be mixed and matched!

I’m loving a pair of boyfriend jeans with a wide cuff paired with a cute tee and chunky buckle skinny belt….a great look for cocktails on the patio at Cypress Inn.  With California’s cool climate, you’ll love how Madewell’s shearling-lined sandals keep your toesies warm.  And on a brisk evening, be sure to top off with a plaid blazer.

For brunch at Bernardus in Carmel Valley, style your white jeans with a navy and white striped sweater and a denim tie-waist shirt jacket.  To keep it comfy and casual, pair with New Balance sneakers.  To complete this fabulous beach resort look, I’ve added Madewell’s dark red sunshades and a navy crossbody bag.

I must admit, I’m smitten with Madewell’s white sweatpants paired with a camel puffer jacket and a long-sleeved striped tee.  Don’t you think they are perfect for a lovely seaside stroll or walk to Mission Inn?  I’ve also added their new camera bag with an optional crossbody bag strap and coordinating sneakers.  Well hello, Mr. Eastwood…fancy meeting you here!!!

Don’t you think a beach trip to Carmel by the Sea is a great way to transition into fall fashion?  And don’t you just love “hanging out” at the beach?
