Colorful Capitola

November 12, 2012

There is a little town about 10 minutes south of Santa Cruz called Capitola. It has a beautiful stripe of colorful houses right along the beach front. It's amazing! These photos were taken last week before the weather cooled down dramatically, the day we went to Capitola it was high up in the 80s! So, I took advantage of it and wore this cute little pinafore gifted from Australian designer Ashiya of House of Cards. This pinafore is perfect all year around! Here, I paired it with a teal chiffon blouse with the most gorgeous and intricate scallop collar, some fun shades, sparkly flats, and a vintage carry on. This will probably be the last summer-looking outfit you'll see since it seems like it is finally cold now! Yay!
