Golden hour on the shoreline is the most gorgeous time of the day, don’t you think? Even though it’s the middle of summer, sometimes I get chilly when the sun sets, which is why I love to bring out my duster cardigan from LOFT. The material is pretty thick, so I reserve this for really cool summer nights or as a layer during the winter. White is the perfect color for any season, which makes this cardigan so versatile!

Usually, I play it safe by pairing stripes with solid colors, so beneath the cardigan is a flowy navy tank and white shorts. Lately, I have been loving my Sperry boat shoes which have the most comfortable memory-foam bottoms.

My outfit is no longer being sold, but I found a few similar items linked below. Feel free to steal my look!

    I wish I got chilly during summers!! But ya know, California problems. I love your outfit Kim! So simple yet really flattering. Also, I love your shoes!! I’ve been wanting a pair but never really went out to get some.

    It was a good walk. Very beautiful photos were obtained. Nature, charming landscapes and early sunset. It always fascinates.

    Such gorgeous photos guys! I love love love golden hour, it’s so beautiful! Whenever I’m out shooting personally or for work, I always hustle to get as many shots done as I can during golden hour because it makes everything look so magical! Especially when I’m near home since I live so rurally that countryside looks the best with the big golden shadows! Ha!

    I hope you and Dan have a wonderful Friday, Kim!

    You’re one of the few people I know who can pull this look off effortlessly! I like the idea of wearing boat shoes, but I’ve been wearing sneakers for so long that I can’t seem to break up with them. Haha!
