Our second girls day out took place in Santa Cruz, Ca.  Any girls day out should start with beer tasting, right??! And that’s where we began!

Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery is a local female owned brewery. All of the organic flagship ales (Wheat, Amber, Brown, Pale Ale, IPA, Porter and Stout) are her original recipes.

We loved the relaxed vibe of the brewery and had a blast tasting all the different varieties, we especially fell in love with the seasonal lavender brew! we want more…..

Always a chance of a chill in the air when you head over to Santa Cruz, and we always have our favorite Gunn Swain blankets + Herbivore lip balm (you have to try the blood orange one! its our fav!) on hand to keep us protected from that chill.

Right around the corner, is Cameron Marks, one of our favorite shops to visit. Both the brewery and Cameron Marks are located in Santa Cruz in a converted Brussels sprout packing factory.
Cameron Marks has two stores, a women’s shop and a home store, and we could spend all day in both!

We then headed downtown over to Stripe which has two stores, both women/children and a Men’s shop.  We always love to shop for ourselves and our little ones but it was so refreshing to find such a great store for men!  Each month Stripe redesigns their storefront themselves, and they are always showstoppers!

Of course no trip to Santa Cruz is complete without a trip to the Penny Creamery, seriously the best Ice Cream and if you haven’t been it is a MUST!  They source everything locally and the flavors they have are beyond yummy…

Ending our day we had a bonfire on the beach with perfect weather, great company, and barely a soul on the beach.  We had the best set up with colorful pillows, beer from the brewery + yummy smores to snack on.  It was an amazing day in a place that is very dear to our hearts and we were lucky enough to explore it with our photographer Carlie Statsky who is a Santa Cruz local, which made it that much more special.

Your fun in the sun is not complete without your Sun Bum and Kamp & Co beach towel. We always have some in the back of our car for any impromptu beach session.
