Striped Separates

6/08/2015

On Sunday, #thehubs and I took a day trip to Capitola and Santa Cruz. The cities are about 45 minutes from me, but I hardly ever visit. So it was nice to drive down and take in the beach boardwalk and these lovely, colorful houses in the quaint city of Capitola. Check it out if you live in the bay. I'll share photos on the blog and on Instagram soon.
This outfit is a combination of two pieces I saw at Zara. The off-the-shoulder striped top was the perfect complement for these striped culottes. And I'm really into matching separates right now as I think they are such a fun look for the summer. You can try suit separates if you're looking for a blazer look in this style.

And I attended the Santana Row Summer Fashion Show on Saturday, too. It highlighted brands like H&M, Penelope, Calypso St Barth and more. Here are some of my favorites from the event, including a pic of #thehubs dancing with one of the models.
