Santa Cruz is a highly active town. With the choice of water sports, mountain sports and everything in between, it's become a Mecca for athletes. And while I appreciate the need for clothes that let one lead the life sportif, it doesn't mean you have to look like you came from the gym as you walk around all day. There are many companies out there who make interesting variations on the sweatshirt. So the next time you need a new one, because let's face it, a hoodie or at least the zip front sweatshirt is a wardrobe staple for most of us, there are some that are made for the great outdoors but don't look like standard fare. This from the girl who wore her black pullover kangaroo pocket hoodie her entire eighth grade year. Yawn. If I can upgrade, so can you.
