Getting sandy in Santa Cruz! (Paulo is wearing "ship ahoy!" from Le Top's 2011 spring / summer collection.)

That’s right! While it was snowing in other parts of the United States, California had temperatures ranging in the 70s with full sun last weekend. Not a cloud in the clear blue sky! And instead of being cooped up at home watching the Super Bowl, we spent the day enjoying the beautiful summer-like weather in the middle of winter.

In typical Bay Area fashion, we dressed in layers leaving the house wearing pants and sweatshirts (and even throwing a coat in the car just in case). But I couldn’t believe that we all stripped down to shorts and t-shirts by lunch time! My daughter even wished she brought her bathing suit.

Little Loves Closet at 110 Stockton Avenue, Capitola, CA 95010

It was Super Bowl Sunday, and we were supposed to go to a Super Bowl party, but the weather was gorgeous, sunny and warm (especially for February)…who’d want to stay indoors? Since my husband isn’t a big baseball fan (yeah, I know, it’s football…that was a joke!), we decided to hit the beach. I love the quaint little town of Capitola in Santa Cruz, because not only am I a few feet from the ocean, but I can also shop! Capitola Village has the cutest children’s apparel store called Little Loves Closet (previously known as European Children’s Clothing). They have been in business for 10 years, and still going strong! I usually stop by there to pick something up for Miranda. I just love that store!

Little Loves Closet is located at 110 Stockton Avenue in the Merchantile Shopping Center. This charming sidewalk store carries the most fashionable children’s apparel at reasonable prices. And they always have a sale going on! They have a wide array of baby and children’s clothes (up to size 12) and a nice selection of le•top brand clothes for boys and girls (sizes 0 – 6x). Since they’re near the beach, they carry le•top bathing suits all year round! They also sell shoes and boots, rain coats, costumes, pajamas, and other accessories.

If you ever get a chance to visit Capitola, be sure to stop by Little Loves Closet. Or you can also visit them at littlelovescloset.com and shop online. They offer gift certificates, gift wrapping, and also have a calendar of events of what’s happening in Capitola.
