I really embraced the laid back Florida vibe on holiday. In the hot humid weather I think you’re more inclined to keep things simple and I always opt for a more pared-down style when on holiday. Don’t get me wrong, I like to dress up at night sometimes, but I love having a more relaxed look, slipping on flip flops and wearing minimal make-up.
I am all about dresses when on holiday as they are so easy to wear. They keep you cool and all you have to do is throw on a pair of heels and some stand-out accessories to take your dress from day to evening.
Phill and I are pretty sensible packers. We bring what we know we feel comfortable in. For me, I bring a handful of dresses and sandals, but plenty of jewellery and hair accessories to change-up my look on different days. Phill lives in three quarter length shorts and t-shirts on holidays but, like me, he likes to dress up that bit more when heading out for dinner and drinks in the evening time.
We definitely did well on the shopping front in Florida. I stocked up on jewellery (as if I needed to!), got three pairs of shoes and a western-style shirt and embellished waistcoat from Buckle. Thankfully Phill found two pairs of shoes to keep him going for another year! Phill has size 13 feet and so finds it difficult to get shoes that fit. He also did well on the clothes front, getting a jacket from Hot Topic, a military style cap from Levi’s and a few t-shirts too.
Do you like a laid back style when on a sunshine holiday, or do you relish the chance to get really glammed up?
