Let it Sparkle

We had a cold front blow through the sunshine state this week which has me reminiscing about all the travel of year's past. As in any year that wasn't 2020. Just last week I donned a cozy tank and shorts to drive down to the Keys for a few days of outdoor fun. Travel style isn't just about the clothes, it's also about the fun accessories like stackable rings and fun bags. 

I was armed and ready for our most recent trip to Key Largo last week. I took the minimal approach, and only packed 2 pairs of sandals - the ones on my feet and a pair for the pool and beach. 

Still love the dainty pieces for outdoor dining on our anniversary trip to St. Pete Beach in June. It was a nice little getaway after being at home for several months. 

A beautiful rose gold bridge ring was the perfect piece for a cozy chic outfit for Thanksgiving weekend in Marco Island last year. Another beautiful water view - Florida is always showing off! 

All dressed up for a work event while in Singapore - believe it or not the gala was right before I left for the airport to begin the 30+ hour trip home. Exhausting but SO worth it! 

Excuse the lighting of this photo, because the main focus is the fact that it was taken outside an amazing restaurant Milan. Another gala, and whirlwind work trip. This time it took me across the pond to Italy. I had to do a lot of walking that evening so opted for my favorite ballet flats in rose gold of course! 

All dressed up for the last work gala of the year (and who would have thought it would be my last for the unforeseen future?!) in Rio De Janeiro. I brought along my favorite bow bangle and studded heels, and recycled the same little black dress I wore to the first gala of the season here in Orlando. I always love to promote shopping your closet

Still swooning over this fountain at the resort we stayed at in Boca Raton last year for a quick overnight on my birthday. A stop by this beauty before we walked across the golf course to dinner was a great idea.

We took Lil' Miss on a staycation to the lazy river in June 2019 for another quick overnight, and she was so excited to pose with mommy as we walked to dinner. I broke out an oldie but a goodie dress and a dainty gold necklace. She was wearing Lilly and it was another reminder of how her closet is better than mine - ha! 

A statement necklace and a bold cocktail ring were on deck for wine tasting my way through Napa and Sonoma with friends in 2017. The views and the wine were incredible, and I can't wait to go back someday! 

I donned the same statement necklace along with stacked bracelets when we explored the beautiful island of Bermuda on our babymoon in 2016. I still can't get over how insanely blue the water was there, to this day I will claim it's more beautiful than the water I've seen in Fiji or the Caribbean. And the pink sand at Horseshoe Bay? AMAZING! 

Hair extensions and a bold lip paired with flip flops for a friend's destination wedding in Punta Cana back in 2015. It was nice to dress up, but still keep it casual. And those beach views? Yes please! 

Ok now I have a serious case of wanderlust! I pulled out my passport ornament to hang on the tree last week, and now I can't wait to use the real deal again. Where's the first place you'd like to travel once it's safe again?

  1. All of your outfits, love love love! I am definitely all about shopping my closet and making pieces look different with a few accessories. I don't even really have the travel bug, I am more of a homebody...but I seriously cannot wait to take a vacation now. I'll go anywhere and be happy just as long as this COVID crap is behind us. I hope that day is sooner than later!

  2. All the fun outfits!! Have a wonderful december!!!
