Summer Fashion Is Upon Us!

The boutique Sugarpop has a line of cute, feminine dresses on ZALORA right now that I would love to get my hands on!

April in Florida is ideal- hot enough for beach days, but not so hot that you burn your feet on the sand.

We took a back road to get to my uncle's house that made us drive for an hour through rural neighborhoods and historic downtown districts and it was like stepping back in time.
