Some sunny history
I’m a born and raised Florida girl and very proud of it! In fact, I’ve lived most of my life in same house in sunny Bradenton. Bradenton is home to one of the best juice companies.. Tropicana! Growing up I can remember riding in my mom’s passenger seat to school getting stopped at the railroad tracks as cars and cars of oranges passed by. And then as we got closer to the factory, I could smell that wonderful scent of freshly squeezed oranges. Now I may be biased but if you haven’t drank Tropicana orange juice you are truly missing out! So for this photoshoot my husband and I headed to the Florida Railroad Museum where they keep a few retired Tropicana railroad cars. It truly captures the essence of old Florida.
The stylish details
I love creating outfits that have a retro feel to them and of course given this photoshoot, it helped add to the whole vibe. The dress is by Free People which if you know me is one of my all time favorite brands. Each piece they have has so many great little details and are always so comfy. But sometimes the pieces can be a little out of my budget however, Macy’s and Dillard’s carries the line too and often has sales! I found this dress on sale at Macy’s and immediately added it to my cart. The style lines on this dress is so flattering and truly will look nice on all figures. It has excellent stretch and movement to it and I love the flare at the bottom.
Danielle Bernstein, the founder of We Wore What, partnered with Macy’s as well and created a beautiful line that was released last month. It is size inclusive and I’m very impressed with the quality. I bought this bodysuit and a dress that I plan to feature in a later post. I love her style but haven’t been able to purchase any of her pieces before until now. If you’re interested in timeless pieces that will easily become staples in your wardrobe be sure to checkout the Macy’s line or her own collection as well.
