look book: santa cruz {and a giveaway!!}

September 20, 2010


I thought I’d start the week off by documenting the beginning of our trip up north. On Thursday Matthew and I drove up to Santa Cruz to see my brother Anthony and my mom who were looking for apartments. Anthony starts school this week and the guy he was supposed to room with dropped out of their deal less than two weeks ago! It was so unfair and put Anthony in a terribly stressful situation. For that reason, it was nice to stop for the day and night and offer some support! The inn we stayed at was off the 17 highway and as soon as we arrived we had to walk around to stretch our legs from the long drive. The lighting was absolutely gorgeous!

tshirt tminx, skirt thrifted, necklace H&M, rings from Matthew, my grandma, random shops, silver cuff from Matthew, wooden bracelet from Anthony

The shirt I’m wearing is from tminx and is called the 1985 Chic Crop Top. It is probably the softest t-shirt I own and I love the fashion print! Yvonne from tminx has so kindly offered to give away one of her awesome Zodiac shirts!

To Enter
1) Visit the tminx shop
2) Must be a follower
3) Leave an email address if I can’t contact you through your blog
4) Tell me what your zodiac sign is and if you agree with the personality/character assessment that comes with it {I am a Gemini but can only connect with a few of the personality traits-like I agree with the sensitivity and desire to learn but not with the glib and restlessness}

The lucky winner will be chosen next Monday, September 27th!

I’ll be posting the proposal story tomorrow! Thank you everyone for all your sweet comments. I can’t tell you how much they mean to me. Matthew and I read through them together and it was so touching to see the incredible amount of love and support. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!
