Often we think of the beach as a warm tropical environment. But there are places where the beach is rocky and filled with pine trees and lighthouses. It's the East Coast. Also, you can find a similar environment in Northern California and the Pacific Northwest.
On vacation in that area, I would wear something sophisticated and nautical. It is probably chilly till summertime so I would wear comfy boyfriend jeans and a striped shirt. Pair the look with a blazer when you go out to eat at night or shopping on the boardwalk. Boat shoes look perfect with boyfriend jeans. Very chic and comfortable!
As for beauty, go natural. Tinted Moisturizer, natural eye look with lip gloss is all you need! Don't forget the sunscreen because you still can get burned there too!
What would you wear to the scenic beach of the east coast?
