Thanksgiving on Cape Cod

After a train ride out of one city and a car ride into another, I arrived on Cape Cod to spend the holiday with my husband's family. During our traditional walk on the beach before the meal, I truly appreciated that, this year, Thanksgiving had arrived on an unseasonably warm, cloudless day. The kind of day where you can still get away with a fall jacket–just barely.

One last chance to walk in the sand before the snow starts falling.  (I don't generally wear suede boots on the beach, I also had sneakers!)

Classic red and black checkers hold in heat and keeps things casual. A pretty romper is great for walking, especially when the wind starts blowing.  Side note: by adding opaque tights to an outfit you can help to extend the life of more summery pieces.  Despite the sunny skies, I knew the cold was coming. My bright blue nail polish is a departure from this summer's hot pinks but still adds a flash of bright color.  Before five o'clock, the sun was going down, and it really started to feel like winter. A few cozy staples in black kept me warm.

Of course, staying warm on the beach in November isn't easy.  I guess it's time to accept that fall is drawing to a close. But if that means a beautiful day on the beach that ends with a warm meal and family, that's fine by me.
