Outfit of the Day: In This Seaside Town...

This past weekend was the weekend before my husband and my 3rd year wedding anniversary. 

While I've been staying in more than usual these days, my husband and I decided to get out for a bit and enjoy a day at the beach side town of Santa Cruz.

To start the day, we headed to a vintage and retro clothing store called Cognito. It's an awesome shop with so many pretty dresses! I was hoping to get a peak of Trashy Diva's new Geisha Fans print but sadly their shipment did not come in time for our stop in. I did however get to try on tons of other Trashy Diva dresses, many of which were styles I've never tried before, and walked away with not one but two lovely dresses :) (reviews to come!). Tim also got a goodie while we were there and picked up a Hawaiian style shirt for his self that was all Miami Vice in style!

Waiting for Cognito to open... Open! Open! Open! ;) Cognito Clothing, Santa Cruz, CA

Another bonus of the day... visiting a friend at the shop! <3

After Cognito we headed down to some local surf spots just to take in the views and to see what was going on. Then we went to the beach boardwalk were we scarfed down fish and chips, fried calamari, popcorn shrimp, and clam chowder! We walked along the historic beach boardwalk which has been operating since 1907 and were amazed that so many of the rides were running despite that it's still winter and despite the rain that had just past! We then ducked into the arcade to keep warm and had a blast playing some of the games.

In the old arcade selection. Some real treasures!

It was a great day and while I don't like to leave my poor kitty at home alone too long when I'm not at work, it was nice to get out for a bit.

Outfit of the Day:

For this day's activities I wore my Trashy Diva 1940's dress in Chocolate Atomic and paired this with a navy cardigan, brown knee highs, and mustard peep toe flats.
