A little known fact is there’s a slice of heaven about 40 minutes outside of Atlanta. A sustainable community called Serenbe, the location is idyllic, the people charming, and the food incredible! Recently, we took a little day trip up there to enjoy some lunch, pop into cute shops and enjoy the Southern sunshine!
Because of the too hot to handle weather, I’ve been opting for easy sundresses that keep me cool. White is always a summer favorite, and fit-and flares are always flattering! I recently found this little number on sale at Cynthia Rowley and scooped it up before anyone could beat me to the punch. You cant have enough white in your summer wardrobe, am I right?! I paired my all white look with my new Chanel (insert heart eye emojis) and cream espadrilles from Patricia Green Collection.
Here’s to keeping cool and living the sundress life all summer long!
Let me start by saying, summer in Florida is no joke. The heat is a killer! So on my recent visit home to Jacksonville, I was sure to pack breezy dresses and shorts for during the day. Honestly, I have a love/hate relationship with shorts – because I feel like my body type doesn’t naturally lend itself to feeling flattered in them. However, on a recent Zara trip, I uncovered this high-waisted and not-too-type pair of navy lace shorts.
Because of the fit, I thought they would look cute with an oversized breezy white shirt which I picked up from H&M. I finished my look with my favorite espadrilles, gifted from Patricia Green! Seriously…I have them in cream, orange and the navy. They’re so comfortable and cute! Lastly, I added a touch of glam to my outfit with a gorgeous pair of earrings from Lele Sadoughi. I’m obsessed with her fun and whimsical designs that can easily elevate an outfit. The great thing about her styles is that they can be paired with casual looks like this, or add color to a more dressed-up style. You’ll see me rocking them all Summer!
Sun, Sand, and Citrus. That’s what Florida is known for, right? Well that was certainly true on my recent impromptu trip home to Jacksonville. My parents were planning on coming up for the weekend, but ended up cancelling, so Jason and I went to them instead! We went back and forth on doing the drive, but ultimately decided that east access to Florida was one of the reasons we left New York in the first place.
Yes, the drive got annoying after about 2 hours, but we were so happy we took the plunge. The thought of sunshine and family time brings a smile to my face even as write this now! While we were there we took it easy, hit the pool, and went to some of my favorite spots growing up. We kept it very low-key and also ran some errands. And just because I’m running around town, it doesn’t mean that style goes out the window. I firmly believe that some of the cutest outfits are casual and effortless looks.
Being in Florida, I ditched my blue denim jeans and went for a bright white! I threw on a chunky oversized sweater that kept me warm when the evening breeze rolled in. But my favorite thing about my casual look are my new orange espadrilles by Patricia green. The color is the prettiest vibrant shade, that still goes with every other color of the rainbow. While I opted for a more nautical look, I’ve already worn them with bright dresses and blue denim alike. And don’t get me started on the comfort. After wearing these a couple of times, I’ve already put in an order for another pair in navy! Stay tuned for how I style those!
