A little weekend staycation can be so rejuvenating. We always head down to Santa Cruz every other weekend, but have never made a weekend out of it. This time we wanted to spend the entire weekend out there, so we chose to stay at Dream Inn which is at the best location in town – right on the beach, a stone’s throw from the Santa Cruz Wharf and just down the road from the Santa Cruz Boardwalk! As you know I love love color and so I was literally obsessed with all the retro chic vibes and color in this cute boutique inn. It perfectly resonated with vibe of Santa Cruz – laidback, beachy and colorful. The view of the Monterey Bay from our room on the 10th floor was absolutely unreal, it was a perfect spot to enjoy the candy colored sunset.
For the first day, I chose to wear this fun printed two piece set by Others Follows. I threw my fave denim jacket over this combo for a walk down the Wharf, which is the perfect place for an afternoon stroll on a gorgeous spring day. I love the cold shoulder detail in the top, which I paired with jeans later that night to catch a movie in town. I carried around my essentials in this cute pouch from Aloha Collection. This versatile water proof pouch is an ideal size for carrying about your basics; it can also work as a makeup bag as well as a bag to stow away your wet bathing suit after a swim. As for accessories I chose this gorgeous tassel + green jade necklace from Love and co SF and a wrap bracelet to go with it.
