Twin Lakes Beach

Twin Lakes Beach in Santa Cruz, California

Every year we try to make one beach trip as a last Summer outing before things settle down for school. Where did the summer go? I’m already doing my back-to-school shopping. While we did go to Maui this summer, we’re definitely still hooked on the beachy vibes. We’ve been to the beach three times since we came home and might try to squeeze in a few more. My mom joined the boys and I to Twin Lakes Beach in Santa Cruz, California. We’ve made this beach our last hurrah in Summer’s past, and this time was no different. The water was so vividly blue, and the weather was perfect.

The outfit I wore has been one of my favorites lately when it’s not too hot. The poncho from Nuraxi is so soft and breezy at the same time, it’s perfect. And I’ve been quite literally living in the slides from Famous Footwear. Who would have thought this style would come back around? They’re still as comfy as my 6th grade basketball days, ha.

I’ve been really nervous for Aiden to start middle school. I know in my heart he’s ready and will do well but I’ve been secretly reading up on all the trends to make sure he seems cool. The Famous Footwear #ohsofamous style gallery has been a great resource for me. There is lots of inspiration, and you can see what others are wearing. All this week I’m sharing some of my own favorite styles using the hashtag #ohsofamous. Will you join me?

  11. […] with skilled artisans around the world to produce items from materials with meaning. My favorite poncho is from Nuraxi, and I’ve been lusting after this blanket for awhile […]

  12. Twin Lakes is a great beach in Santa Cruz — dog friendly and right next to our Seabright Beach. Love that first photo of Walton Lighthouse. We wish we were there now! Come to Seabright next time you’re looking for a beach getaway!
