Monterey Bay | Pink Wings


Just an hour south of Santa Cruz is Monterey so we added that into our trip along the coast. We've been there once before, so we did all the things we missed the first time: the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the "17-mile drive" which is a scenic drive along the shoreline. But we also went back to some of the places we loved the first time: Ocean Sushi Deli which has a delicious chashu ramen bowl with lots of lean chashu, Parker-Lusseau Pastries, and an Italian cafe Caffe Trieste that has the yummiest spaghetti's.

We love visiting these NorCal beaches, they are so blue and beautiful. Day 2 of our stay-cay I wore these shoes from Famous Footwear. I wish the sun didn't glare off of them in my photos so much because you can't see the pretty detailing. They have an eyelet fabric design and I fell in love with them right away, just click on the shoe link below to see what I'm talking about. These are my new summer vacay shoes.

My Santa Cruz post made it into Famous Footwear's #ohsofamous gallery, here's to hoping this one does too! Check it out for shoe inspo and you can submit your own photos by tagging #ohsofamous on Twitter or Instagram.

  8. Great sneakers and I've never heard of this footwear line, but really love the design and how you've styled them.

    Feel free to link this up with either my new travel linkup or my style linkup as I'd love to promote it.

    1. It's not really a footwear line, it's just a store that sells all kinds of brands. Like these are just Keds. But yeah they have a great selection and thanks!
