What I Wish I Were Wearing Wednesday

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

What I wish I were wearing Wednesday is back for another week! This weekend I am going to Santa Cruz for my aunt's 50th birthday dinner. We go to Santa Cruz a lot and always stay at the The Dream Inn. It's the coolest hotel on the water with the pool and balcony over looking the ocean. The rooms have bright colored, retro furniture and old pictures of the Santa Cruz Boardwalk and beach framed on the walls.

My favorite part about Santa Cruz is the antique shops and lunch at the best bakery around, Gayle's. Once a month or so, my mom, my grandma, and I drive over the mountains to go to a couple of our favorite stores in the Santa Cruz, Capitola area. After some hard-core shopping we always stop at Gayle's for lunch and let me tell you, it is a dream. Have you been there? You need to try the creme brulee. And just look at these adorable bee hive cupcakes!


Anyway... Here is what I wish I were wearing for our shopping trip!


Beach Lunch






This is actually coming pretty close to what I will we wearing, but on a slightly less cute, much less expensive scale (I wish I had this 500 dollar sweater and 900 top but sadly, I don't). I might also have to swap out those darling flats for some boots since the weather man is talking about rain. Both the bracelet and the earrings are Kate Spade, I have been drooling over her jewelry ever since I got this necklace for Christmas.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday! I have a lunch date with Mitchell to eat burgers from The Counter so it will be a good day for me!


Also, be sure to check out this giveaway at this fantastic blog (its one of my favorite daily reads)

I love the outfit. Super cute. I may look into those places you suggested in Santa Cruz. The hub and I are always looking for new places to enjoy.
