Brunch at The Ocean Course

As the NY Times printed, "a cardigan sweater draped over the shoulders can look fashionable and be ready to don should the temperature drop." That could not be more true of fall weather which features brisk mornings, warm afternoons, and cool evenings. How is one to dress for all of that? 

I hardly ever leave the house without some sort of jacket or light sweater. There are just too many practical reasons to have a sweater handy. Kiawah Island is one of my favorite places in the world. My family spends Thanksgiving there, it's become sort of a tradition: Stay at The Sanctuary, run the Annual 5k Turkey Trot, have dinner at The Ocean Room, bike on the beach, have coffee at Freshfields Village, attend the Tree Lighting Ceremony, have breakfast at The Ryder Cup Grille at The Ocean Course, and watch sunsets over the ocean. Nothing beats the crisp, fall sea breeze of the South Carolina coast, that's for sure. 

A polo, for me, is a closet staple. I play golf so naturally I have a ton of collared shirts. I usually stray away from wearing them outside of the golf course because a lot of them are an 'athletic' material, but since we were eating brunch at a golf course, I thought I would branch out. Especially since this one is sleeveless, cotton, and super comfortable. It's not too loose or too tight and has the right amount of stretch. Sweaters layer so much better with sleeveless shirts. As far as sweaters, I like Ralph Lauren because they have a ton of different colors and styles. Talbots is also a go-to for cable-knits. The sweater styled above is crew neck and on the thicker side. But I would say the ideal 'sweater-over-the-shoulder' sweater is cashmere RL.

Now the real question: to pop or not to pop? ;)
