Over the past week, I had the opportunity to travel down to South Florida to visit my boyfriend. I’m here about once a month and have fallen in love with it. It’s crazy how just going a few states south can make a world of difference. When I left Richmond, the weather was in the 30-degree range, and when my plane arrived in Fort Lauderdale, it was already in the 80’s! While Florida is nicknamed the “Sunshine State,” I have to admit, it’s not always very sunny. The rain can come out of nowhere and last anywhere between five minutes and five hours. However, this trip has been nothing but bright sunny days and I’m loving it! Brandon and I have gotten to watch several stunning sunsets, and boy let me tell you, it’s been pretty fantastic! One of the first nights I was here, we went to the rooftop of a parking deck and while the cool breeze tamed a warm evening, we watched the flaming sun fall into a deep slumber. It was a wonderfully romantic little date night that I will never forget.
While the spring days in South Florida provide warmth straight to your bones, the evenings can be cool and even slightly chilly. I wanted to dress comfortably for our excursion, so I paired my faithful slit-knee skinnies with my new favorite crop top from California MoonRise. This brand has the best selection of bohemian styles and patterns to choose from, perfect for festival season and summer fun. I loved the fun design on this mock-neck sleeveless top because it gave a very laid-back feeling to my look. I decided to go simple for my accessories. I wanted to mix metals and textures, so I chose my nailhead wrap bracelet from Sterling Forever and stacked it with my JORD Wood Watch that I’ve been wearing nonstop. I also added this dynamite pair of sunnies from Westward Leaning that I received from DITTO.
This look made me feel so confident and comfortable. The top and bottoms both hugged my curves perfectly – or so my boyfriend says – and the materials were soft and stretchy, allowing me to bounce around the rooftop in excitement as I Snapchatted a million photos of the gorgeous sunset.
