Winter in Los Angeles, an OOTD

Winter in Los Angeles is slightly different than your “typical” winter. When I say slightly, I mean very. We have blue skies and warm breezes year round, maybe it drops to the 60s on a cooler day. I don’t even have the words to describe how lucky I feel everyday to be living in such a beautiful city.

We decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and head down to Malibu for the afternoon. Just had to grab some lunch and watch the sunset on the beach. So let me share my day and my winter in Los Angeles OOTD!

Malibu Farm

AKA the absolute best lunch spot in Malibu. If you’re visiting, I seriously recommend going because you truly won’t find a better view. I always prefer to sit outside because you get an incredible view of the water from the pier, it’s just out of control beautiful.

What I order: Chicken Broccoli Quesadillas (with a side of spicy aioli)

Can’t go wrong with a cute double date on a beautiful sunny afternoon. The quesadillas are an actual MUST, I crave them all the time. The menu is filled with ‘healthier’ food options which I love!

El Matador Beach

A quick drive down the PCH lands you at one of the most stunning beaches I’ve been to in California. There are so many huge rocks and caves to adventure through, which makes this beach pretty unique to the others around it.

We made it right in time for sunset and I probably said “oh my god” like 500+ times. I can’t help but freak out over a beautiful sunset!!!

Hi my name is Tara & I like long walks on the beach… in the winter πŸ˜‰

I realize that this is definitely not a “winter appropriate” outfit but if you’re looking to start planning for summer reaaaally early, here are the details!

Tank: Urban Outfitters (similar)

Shorts: Urban Outfitters

Cardigan: Aritzia (similar)

Belt: Gucci

Sunglasses: Rayban

Seriously love that THIS is a winter outfit for me. Seriously I feel lucky every single day (and even luckier after just getting back from Toronto!!!).

Winter in Los Angeles is everything I could’ve hoped for my entire life. I’ve always been very affected by the changes of weather so being in LA where it’s (almost) always beautiful is so helpful to me. So thankful for this life.

Hope you enjoyed today’s post, see ya next time xo

    Haha “winter”… love it though!
    Can I ask you something? I am trying to grow my instagram and improve the quality of my pictures. Since I absolutely love the pictures you take and the way your insta feed looks, I was wondering if you have some advice (could be a cool Tara Tueaday video too!).
    Lots of love Mirte

    Hi Tara! You really inspire me to make a blog or even start posting photos like this on my Instagram (I’m a photographer so I’m never in front of the camera) Which also, i was wondering how you edit your photos for the blog? Actions on photoshop? Or just general tuning? I would love to go to LA one day! I live 30 mins from the Canadian border (Watertown, NY) and I’m so jealous with how warm it is in LA! With the wind chill it’s been -30!!! I am definitely living through your right now 😘β™₯️

    I can’t believe that 3 years ago I was in LA, enjoying my last few days of vacations before going back to DC for work. I’m french, I was in the US just for one year as an aupair. I wish I lived in LA during this year, but no, I lived in a city with the same weather that I have in France. I live in Grenoble. But I love LA, I love Malibu, I love the weather there. You’re a lucky girl to live there ! I hope I’ll come back soon, and I hope I’ll meet you.
    Have a nice day Tara
