This Side Of Paradise

Hello from Florida! As you may know, or guess from all the pictures with snow, I live pretty North in the US and haven’t seen the sunlight or warm temperatures in what feels like forever. But this week, I’m on vacation to Marco Island, Florida soaking up the sun. It’s so beautiful here, with the palm trees, sunny skies, and adorable beach towns. I’m on vacation with my best friend and her family and it’s been so much fun so far.

I’ve missed the beach and swimming, and not having to wear like 5 layers just to go outside. However, there is a drawback to getting all this sun. I’m super burnt, especially on my face, which is why I had to opt for the “hiding my whole face” look today. I’m wearing my new shirt for Spring from Aeropostale here, and absolutely love it. All of the clothes I bought from their spring line are beautiful and great for the beach and this amazing weather.

The last picture is from this place in Naples called Tin City. It’s an adorable boardwalk lined with little shops. We rode the Buffalo which I thought would be really intense but was actually super easy!

Love, Francesca
