Since Sam and I first met, picnics have always something we’ve always enjoyed doing together. We love finding tucked away spots and setting up to watch the sunset. After spending time with family, Sam and I had a moment to ourselves. We decided to take the opportunity to set up a quick little picnic on the bluff of the family beach house. This time of year is always especially magical in Santa Cruz. The weather starts to get a little cooler and the light turns golden. The sunsets are more breathtaking and it always takes me back to the 4 years I spent living by the beach here. Santa Cruz is a sleepy little town that never really changes. Every time I visit I get a tinge of nostalgia for simpler days of living in a beach town.
I’m currently loving the idea of draping myself in jewel tone velvet head to toe. I even have the matching velvet pants to this top which I’m definitely planning on pairing together. I’m not sure if this idea is ridicules or genius or a bit of both. Below I’ve curated a selection of my favorite velvet pieces. Enjoy and have a lovely Thursday. xo
