I just got back from Florida yesterday and couldn’t wait to share all of the amazing photos that my photographer (a.k.a. the hub) captured of me on our trip, so I got straight to editing! He put in so much effort to take the perfect photos for me — kudos for the effort and dedication!
I wanted to show you all of the outfits that I wore on my Florida vacation to give you inspirations for your summer travels. I wasn’t sure what to pack since this was my first time going to Florida, but I just stuck to my typical summer staples — dresses and rompers — and it all worked out perfectly! I started packing a week in advance because I needed the extra time to coordinate my looks, shoes, and accessories (I’m so extra, I know!). All of my looks were super easy and effortless, which was what I aimed for. I knew I wanted pieces that were comfortable, functional, but still cute at the same time, so once I decided on what shoes to bring because shoes come first (brown sandals and black low-wedge strappy heels), then I deliberately chose pieces that were stylish and comfy to accompany them.
I had a rough 3 am start to get ready for the airport — it was a rainy start that ultimately lasted throughout our entire vacation. We were unlucky to have booked our vacation during Florida’s rainy season, but we tried to make the best of it while we were there. We got almost everything done on our itinerary despite the gloomy and wet weather — it was a really fun trip and I definitely want to come back and visit again in the future!
I insisted on taking a photo as we left the Orlando airport with my super cute floral luggage — it’s by Bebe and I found it at Macy’s Backstage!
I’ve always been obsessed with wall murals and was so thrilled to have come across a cool little Vietnamese restaurant called Pho Hoa in Orlando that had wall-covered art everywhere! This piece was was my favorite . . .

We headed over to Disney World and Epcot the day after even though the weather was very threatening — we knew if we didn’t go that day, we wouldn’t have another chance to, so what the heck! Having a full face of makeup on, I was so concerned that my makeup was going to run down my face — lol! The weather was so cray — it would rain hard for three minutes and then stop, and that pattern continued repeatedly. We ducked for cover under arches that we found along our way of touring the parks when it started raining, then headed back out when the weather calmed down — I was lucky to have carried a floppy hat with me, or else, my makeup wouldn’t have lasted through this trip! Yay!
Here’s a shot of us hiding from the rain at Disney World, along with fifteen or so other people who managed to squeeze in underneath this little roof . . . some people refused to give in to the hurricane-like weather and just kept strolling along and even took photos in the rain . . . 🙂
The next day was another rainy day . . . we got breakfast in the morning, but had to go back to our hotel since the rain didn’t stop. We napped and wasted half the day before the weather finally cleared up for us to check out Universal Studios.
I wore my favorite romper from Forever 21 — it was adorable and super comfy!
After spending three days in Orlando, we left and headed down to Sunny Isles Beach and South Beach.
We were spoiled by our hotel’s beach access — the ocean was just a few steps away from our room and it was so beautiful!
I really wanted to check out South Beach, so after playing in the ocean water for a bit, we jumped in our car and landed on the lively Collins Avenue. We ate at an overly priced outdoor dining “restaurant” that had crappy food, we shopped, walked on the beautiful beach, and took plenty of photos with the marvelous palm trees.
We stumbled upon this beautiful tree on the way back from South Pointe Park that matched my dress — couldn’t pass up the photo op!
We continued our road trip through Florida as we drove down to the Florida Keys! There were so many beautiful stops along the way for us to take photos!
We crossed the Seven Mile Bridge and ended up staying at an adorable little inn in Marathon called White Sands Inn. This was definitely my favorite stop on the entire trip! The location and atmosphere was incredible — super chill and relaxed!
Isn’t this place cute?! We were surrounded by the ocean, white sand, palm trees, colorful decor, and got to witness a crab migration right outside our bedroom door!
It was so cool to see all these crabs roaming around! There were so many of them! They migrate from their burrows to the ocean during this time of year, where the females deposit their eggs.
I could’ve laid on this hammock all day! It was a heavenly place!
A giant lobster was going to eat me!
I hope you enjoyed reading about my Florida trip and found some outfit inspirations for when you travel! Wear what makes you feel beautiful and comfortable! 🙂
I have so much work to catch up on now that vacation is over! I’ve missed blogging so much and have so many goodies to share with you in the next few weeks! I can’t wait! Stay tuned and I’ll talk to you soon!
