Patterned Shorts Forever

Sunday, 27 July 2014



Best shorts ever? Yes. As soon as I saw them in Zara a few months ago I knew that I couldn't leave the shop without them. I would wear these everyday if I could.. Maybe I will, although I'm not sure how warm they'll be in November..

It feels crazy that I've been on holiday for three weeks now. I can't believe that this time next week I'll be packing up and heading to the airport. I've still got seven days left to soak up the sunshine though and try fit in as many French Toast breakfasts as I can! (The current total is 11.)

Denim Cool

Monday, 21 July 2014



 
Very casual today. The t-shirt is one I picked up from J.Crew at the start of the week, I love the pattern on it and, of course, the colour. I can't say no to a grey top, (I might have bought 5 grey tops in the last week). Going for a pretty laid back vibe with some denim shorts from Hollister and suede slip-on shoes from Michael Kors. I found the shoes at Nordstrom Rack and they are unbelievably comfortable, although they did turn my feet black! 

I wore this for taking a walk to the beach and going for dinner at the 'Old Naples Pub'. I had spinach dip with tortilla chips and it was delicious! Spinach dip is my new favourite dish to have when dining out, even if it can sound a little off putting. So yummy. 

Coral Me Maybe

Another fairly simple outfit today. The same black chino shorts from J.Crew as my last post (I did say they were my favourite!!). I've never been drawn to the scalloped edged trend that hit Topshop a while back but then I saw this top and completely fell in love. I think it's mostly to do with the gorgeous colour of it! It's definitely been another favourite of mine while I've been away. Finishing off with my beloved new Mulberry sandals. Have I mentioned before how much I love them? Best. Shoes. Ever. 

Tomorrow is my last day here before travelling north to up to Orlando in Central Florida where I'll be staying for my last two weeks in the States. Although I'm looking forward to my time in Orlando, I'll be sad to leave here. I'll definitely miss the early morning walks to the beach. 

P.s. I have no shame in admitting I've been listening to 'Call Me Maybe' on repeat for the last few days, and the title of this post is most definitely a reference to that. So. Catchy. 

Black and White and Yellow

Sorry for the lack of posts over the last week or so. I arrived in South-West Florida yesterday, having just come off a week long Caribbean cruise, where I had no access to internet. The cruise was perfect. Warm, sunny, tropical islands and all you can eat breakfasts. My personal heaven. I'll be doing a post with some of the photos I took last week very soon! 

In the meantime, make sure to follow me on Instagram for photos while I'm in Florida! Username: JOAMEA
  
For today I went for a very simple outfit for relaxing by the pool and going to the shops (I resisted the urge to purchase anything from the Nordstrom handbag department, big round of applause for me!) My favourite shorts at the moment are these black chino ones from J.Crew. So comfortable and the perfect length! Paired with a cropped white vest from Topshop. I've been completely obsessed with these tops while I've been away. Maybe I took 6 of them in a variety of colours away with me, maybe I didn't. Finishing off with my black TOMS and, of course, my yellow Marc Jacobs Percy Flap to add a bit of colour. 

I hope you're having a great July so far! See you soon!
