I gave you a little break from vacation outfits but now I am going back to my road trip and sharing my experiences with you. Our next 3 stops were in the south of Florida: Panama City Beach, Clearwater Beach and Siesta Keys & Anna Maria Beaches. These are all beautiful beaches with amazing white, extremely fine sand.
Panama City beach had a bit fluffier sand then the other two. I will talk more about them a bit later. The water was also not very calm. I love playing in the waives so I really enjoyed my two day stay at this beach. Maybe the reason why I also loved it so much was because it was a first beach (other than lake beaches) that I have been to in the last two years. Last summer I didn’t end up going anywhere south so the feel of the ocean and sand sure felt amazing. Panama City Beach is mainly family oriented vacation destination. It’s mostly composed of hotels and resorts. There is not too much to do in the evening except for a few bars, but it’s great for families and for some fun in the sand. If you’re looking to do some light surfing, this is the place to be.

Clearwater Beach was on top of my list of beaches to visit. I heard only great things about it. So the expectations were quite high. The sand is very white and extremely fine. In fact, it’s so fine that it’s not fluffy at all, so it makes for a bit harder ground to lay on, then one may be used to at the beaches. I love lying in sand as opposed to beach beds, so fluffy sand is important. Though my high expectations were not met, I still think the beaches were really beautiful. The water is pretty shallow so it’s perfect for kids. The town is really cute beach town with beautiful houses. Another positive thing about this town is that it was surprisingly very, very affordable.

Lastly, Siesta Keys and Anna Maria beaches are part of one long strip of land in the south of Florida. Anna Maria is to the north of the strip and is mostly comprised of smaller, more private and quaint, beautiful beaches. So if you want some quite romantic beach time, this is your place. Siesta Keys had much wider stretches of sandy beaches and has more visitors, therefore it’s much noisier. The sand, just as in Clearwater is fine and white. Both towns are also very cute, though Anna Maria was much more quaint and colourful. Both towns also have a much livelier night scene then Clearwater.

Now, being that I was in beach towns for 5 days, there is not much one can wear but a bathing suit. I am not the type of a person that likes to spend too much $$$ on bikinis. After all, you sit in the sand in them, swim and wash them too many times. So spending hundreds of dollars on them just makes no sense to me. I do love Victoria Secret strapless tops with proper sized cups. I use them as bathing suits (as they are meant to me)  but also as strapless bras when needed. I am a bigger cup so finding a strapless bra with a proper support (which keeps your boobs where they are supposed to be, as opposed to making them look like they are just above your navel) is crucial to me. On a side note, I’m very saddened to hear they are discontinuing their bathing suite sales. I also like to mix and match my bathing suits so it makes it look like I have more of them then I actually do. In the pictures from Panama Beach I am wearing Triangl Swimwear. What a beautiful purple colour, isn’t it? In Clearwater pictures I’m wearing top and bottom from Victoria’s Secret. The H&M dress I purchased just before my trip was such a success and money well spent. It was perfect as a cover-up, dress on its own or a light summer jacket. I wore it non-stop. In the final photos I’m wearing Victoria Secret top and H&M bikini bottoms. I love ruffles on the bottom as they create an illusion of curves. This is also true of bikinis that tie on the sides. If your shape is more sporty and you want to look more curvy, these two style are perfect for you.
I hope you enjoyed this post as much as you did the New Orleans posts. If you have missed them, follow the links here, here & here.
Thank you for following.

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

How to Stay Warm in the Tricky Spring Weather

Jeans Zara, boots Forever 21, blouse Forever 21, jacket Mango (old), scarf Aldo, sunnies Ray-Ban, bag Louis Vuitton (with my own chain strap), gloves H&M
As the sun is out again and the weather doesn't require thick layers of clothing, I get to get out more out and about the city. The spring is the time when I walk the most, sometimes for hours. It also helps with the few winter pounds heheh. Though long walks require comfort, I still like to wear a cute little outfit. You may think how are heeled boots comfortable, but to be honest, I get more easily tired walking in flats then in heels. Granted, for these long walks I opt for a more chunky heel and a shoe with a strong foot support, rather then a thin stiletto heel. 
I recently purchased these Forever 21 booties and decided they were going to be the piece around which the outfit is built. With me, the outfit builders are usually the shoes haha. And though it was a nice spring day, layers were still a must. I layered a soft t…

Instagram Roundup

I haven't posted much lately and now I'm on vacation for another week or so, so no new posts are expected before I return. I wanted however to share with you a few of my favourite pictures from my Instagram account. Few more pictures have been posted since but you will have to go to my Instagram account to see more.

The Best Blazer. Period.

Blazer Premonition (FigJam.To), dress White by Vera Wang, sandals (Winners), belt Express
Today's outfit was not intended to be shared on the blog, but rather just on my Instagram. It was shot (you can see the quality of the pictures) with a phone camera in a prompt 2 minute photo shoot, as I was running late for a weeding. But I was soooooo excited by this blazer that I had to share it here as well. I had too many pictures that I liked and I could not show them all on Instagram, otherwise people would un-follow me for spamming them hahahaha. 
I got this blazer delivered this same day and it fit perfectly with the dress I had chosen to wear to the event. It is from a website called FigJam.To which specializes in Australian designers. I took one look at this gorgeous piece and I HAD to have it. How amazing is the detailing on the back? Perfect to show off your dress...or your derrier when you pair it with some tight jeans....It's beautifully tailored. A perfect boyfriend blaze…
