My first visit to Santa Cruz and let me tell you I was spoiled. I got to spend the weekend exploring the beach towns, eating fresh picked strawberries, playing carnival games on the boardwalk, and finished it off with a big birthday bash at a private winery. I love the laid back vibe of Santa Cruz and definitely want to spend more time there seeing all that there is to see. For the party I wore a cute romper that you can tie five different ways a little purse and some simple sandals. Sometimes simple is better!
