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.

Lace SheIn Dress & Purple OTK Boots

Dress SheIn (size M), bag SheIn, boots Ebay These boots may be one of the best purchases I’ve made in a long time. I know that at first they may not appear like an item that you will wear much, but they go so perfectly with most dresses and skirts, but are also thin enough that you may wear then under pants. It’s such a perfect statement piece and it will make any outfit pop. I love the purple especially but I’m also looking to purchase a beige/tan pair, and pink and …. 😊 Even the material is not very sensitive to dirt which I thought it would be. This is an old outfit I wore in late spring this year but never got to post it on the blog, so I decided to do it today. I think this outfit would also be great for a New Years party. Why always go for sparkle on New Years? Instead, make a statement with hot boots and beautiful, feminine dress.

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

There are still quite a few more outfits and cities I’ll be featuring on the blog from my last year’s trip to Italy, however today I’m sharing this post from the last location we visited: beautiful Positano. As we visited Italy in the fall, outfits left to share are more fall appropriate, so I will share them come September. I’ll be dealing with two little babies then so God knows how much time I will have to shoot new outfits. As I’m laying on my couch bored out of my mind counting down the days to my delivery next week (whooohoooo!!!) I’m experiencing such FOMO. Partially because I won’t be going on vacation this summer (though becoming a mom to two little girls is quite awesome!!) and partially because I’m reminiscing of my travels last year. Positano seems to still be one of the most photographed summer destinations so I’m sharing a few pictures from my trav…

Bouclé Red Teddy Coat

OTK boots (similar), sweatshirt/dress H&M, coat Koton, handbag Zara (same bag Ebay & similar)
Hello darlings, here I am again after a 3 month absence. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you know I have a good excuse. I’m 4 months pregnant and just got over my first trimester. Those of you who have been pregnant know how tiring the first trimester can be. On top of that, I’m expecting twins, two girls!!!! So I guess I can say I was double tired hehehehe. I still owe you more outfits & posts from Italy and Serbia from last fall, but before I go back to that, let me share a few outfits which are more appropriate for the current winter/spring weather. I shot both this outfit and the one I will share with you in the next post during my first month of pregnancy before the exhaustion kicked in, but I never got to post them on the blog. Today is all about this teddy red coat. The brand is Koton and it was only $80. It is really soft and cozy and I’ve gotten a lot of complim…

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…
