We all know I would sleep in jeans if they wouldn’t dye the sheets blue. Recently I’ve started to feel that jeans are slightly too informal and that I should find a pair of trousers. I found these J.Crew “Reese” Pants and fell in love with the fit. They’re classic, sporty and super versatile. I like the casual cool feel and the fact they’re really just updated track pants.

Last weekend we visited the town of Capitola which is about 10 minutes away from downtown Santa Cruz. I had been to the area before but never had a chance to explore. We stayed in the cutest b&b called, Inn at Depot Hill (stay tuned for a recap) and took a short stroll down to beach. Right past the strip of shops and restaurants, we spotted the tiny colorful boxes stacked in rows. The sight put a smile on my face and the sunset didn’t hurt either. Definitely worth another day trip down there!

Last weekend the good ol’ folks at Lexus let me take a joy ride down the coast in a 2015 Lexus RX. It was super easy to drive and perfect for the windy roads scattered through Highway 1. It was a little scary to drive a larger car, but I got over that hesitation quickly when I realized it’s cool (and beneficial) to see past the car in front of me. Since I’m always cold, I had the seat warmers on high. Tyler on the other hand, had the seat coolers on blast. In his words, “Wow, I’ve never sat in a leather seat without getting sweaty.”
Thanks for the experience, Lexus!
Obvi, right? The Fancy Dress Report doesn’t sound nearly as good. Although I’m not a huge fan of dresses, it’s so satisfying to find a comfy one that I can see myself wearing over and over again. Usually I aim for maxi styles because they’re super versatile and I don’t have to worry about it blowing up in the breeze. I also like the fact that I can sit like a boy and have no one notice. Another perk? Eating a gross amount of food without pants restricting my intake. Happy Saturday!

The weather has been ridiculously good lately and I feel guilty for enjoying it since we’re in a major drought. I’ve made small adjustments to limit my water use like shorter showers and not washing my car – okay, it’s not like I used to do that before, but it’s a great excuse not to. I’ve also decided to limit my water consumption by drinking more beer and wine. That counts, right?
