This weekend my family and I took a short road trip to Santa Cruz. None of us are avid surfers (one of the 21-ish facts I posted on Instagram last week) but I just had to head to the water hoping I could get Harlowe to dip her feet in in the ocean. Disappointingly, the waves scared the bejeezus out of her. I didn’t force it as I can understand how a large crashing body of water can be frightening, but I hope this fear doesn’t last long!
I wore a perfect, breezy, black dress from an old favorite shop, Azalea. The Banker and I used to shop there when we lived in SF and now we shop online since our trips to Hayes Valley are far too infrequent. They’ve recently revamped their site and reached out to me to try it out. I put this dress in my cart moments after I heard from them and I’ve already worn in twice since it arrived last Thursday. It will be on heavy rotation! If you find yourself shopping the site use code ‘ANIMAL15’ to get 15 off your order.
Side note: I realize I’ve never written about why I choose to call my husband ‘The Banker’. His name is Kaäre, which can be difficult to read. I mean, how many of you would read K-a-ä-r-e as “Cory?” I wouldn’t! While I’m proud of him, I don’t think banking is particularly interesting. (Read: I’m not trying to be pretentious.) It’s just easier to read ‘The Banker’ than Kaäre.
I hope you had a great weekend!
