Last week we popped up to the Bay Area and spent a few days in Santa Cruz. My favorite thing about Santa Cruz is the nostalgic boardwalk with its cotton candy colors and old-school roller coaster and rides. Take a peek…

Vintage charm galore, right?

I’ve always wanted to do a shoot here, but due to work and life (we had a brand-spanking new nephew to meet!) we only had about 15 minutes. After a quick change in the car (#thatbloggerlife), I ended up in this frilly vintage pink chiffon dress, which matched the old-school vibe of the boardwalk. But I wanted to add a modern twist, so tossed on a cute white moto jacket for what ended up feeling a little like a modern sockhop. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this white jacket with everything.
