The doctor called. He prescribed a generous dose of Vitamin Sea!
There was one place I told my fiancé I wanted to visit while we were in Florida – the beach. Maybe that sounds like an no-brainer to you, but there’s been many times we’ve traveled to SoFlo and haven’t made it to the beach while we were there. When we visited back in August (right after our engagement), we stopped by Fort Lauderdale Beach around golden hour, and took one of my favorite Instagram photos to date. I found the location for that spot, and this time around we drove straight to the street and parked to enjoy the sunset. I can’t even begin to explain how marvelous it felt to sink my toes into the sand and splash around in the waves!

I had been wearing this outfit the entire day, but it was just too perfect not to photograph at the beach. The tropical print on the pants gave me such life and really had me feeling those vacay vibes! About a week before we left for the trip, I ordered these pants from Forever 21. I wasn’t sure if they’d be what I was hoping for, especially after my last experience with wide-legged pants (they swallowed my tiny frame whole). Thankfully, these belted pants fit really well, and I was doing a little happy dance internally because they weren’t completely see-through! Oh, and fun fact: they have pockets – so they’re obviously winners (plus, they’re only $35 and come in yellow as well)!
I’ll be completely honest with ya’ll – this top was not the best idea for the beach. I guess in my mind, “sea breeze” wasn’t that intense, but when you’re wearing giant ruffles … well … let’s just say I got slapped in the face a lot, and my shirt ended up with more lipstick on it than my mouth. 😂 However, if you’re interested in a less-intensely-ruffled option, this blouse from ASOS is a real gem. Then just throw on some favorite accessories and go soak up that Vitamin Sea!
