They say home is where the heart is. And mine just so happens to be back in the beautiful state of Florida. Growing up surrounded by the river, beaches and greenery, I suppose I took the scenery for granted. But on my recent visit from New York – I stopped for a moment to smell the proverbial roses. The photos above were taken at the Club Continental, a gorgeous historic property where my family lives. The club itself is a destination for events and getaways – and from the photos, I’m sure you can see why!
For my trip home to Florida, I packed lots of white, breezy dresses and comfortable sandals. When I saw this maxi dress hanging in Anthropologie – I instantly fell in love. It was one of those situations where I didn’t have a place in mind to wear it, but I knew I had to have it, because it was so unique. The fabric is gorgeous with a subtle, lace embroidery that falls beautifully at ankle-skimming length. And of course, I love the sexy and dramatic neckline. I paired my new favorite summer dress with nude suede sandals from J. Crew. Let me just say, I’m obsessed with these, and they’re on sale! They’re both cute AND comfortable, and the grommets add a little bit of edge to any Summer outfit. I also love this colorful straw bag – perfect for trips to the market, or weekends at the beach!
