Memorial Day Weekend is always the kick-off to the summer season for my family. One of my family’s favorite past-times in the summer is playing at the beach! So, we ventured down to Capitola for brunch, and a fun day at the beach. Of course, since we have been having unusually cold and foggy weather the past couple of weeks, the beach was no different. The temperature for the day hovered in the mid 50’s; keeping us out of the water, and bundled up. It was still a fun day, and my daughter’s American Girl Doll also had a blast 😉 I just love her swimsuit, don’t you? She was the only one who did not feel cold at all! Haha

One of the new trends this summer is the cropped trouser pant trend. I recently picked up this pair of cropped, casual trousers from Gap and they turned out to be the perfect pants for our family beach day. The cuffs on the bottom of the legs, and the tie belt, gave the pants enough style to be worn to church before the beach, and also to brunch on our way to the beach! Perfection! Since they have an elastic waist and loose fit, these pants were extremely comfortable for sitting on the beach and playing around with my kids. I am looking forward to wearing these cropped pants all season long.

This top is also one of my new favorites. The fabric is ultra soft, making the blouse super comfy. Love that! I also love the faux tie-dye pattern, and roll-up sleeves. It was easy to wear all day. I am looking forward to wearing it with jeans, and shorts, later in the summer season.

Have you tried the cropped pants trend yet? What are your thoughts?
