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?
Besides itchy eyes and a runny nose, Spring is my favorite! Mild temperatures, light layers and airy neutrals. When I’m not donned in all black, white is my go-to color (or lack of?). Any way you slice it, these crisp overalls are meant for sunny days spent outdoors. To complete this warm weather ready look, I threw on a pair of timeless wedges. I’m really impressed by how comfortable they are! The straps don’t cut into my feet and the bottom is cushioned quite nicely. I almost got them in black, but I’m happy I went with the nude instead. It’s a classic tone for the season as well as into the Summer months. Can’t wait to work them into the rest of my wardrobe.
