Hello! Did you miss me? I went on a short trip to Florida with my husband and some friends. No kids, just sleeping and reading and laying in the sun. It was sunny perfection. Too short, but perfection. And - I kept my word, I took photos while I was gone. So. Let's begin, shall we?

This was my travel outfit on the way to Florida. We had to leave our house at the insanely early hour of 4:40 a.m. And it was cold here. So I tried to wear something that would be comfortable on a chilly plane but cool enough that I wouldn't roast when I got there. I was sort of successful.
I love this little chiffon top but - yet again - I bought it a size too big. So when I got to Florida and tried to go cardigan-less, I was pretty much falling out of my shirt. So sad. I'll have to take in the straps to make it not so cleavagey.
(I took this photo after a full day of traveling, so forgive the rumpling. Also I had to change back into it to take the photo because I was in such a hurry to go swimming when we arrived, I forgot the photograph. Oh well.)

Brown cardigan: Target
Floral ruffled tank: Old Navy
Navy jeans: Lauren Conrad bootcut
Coral and tan sandals: Bass

Vacation outfit number one. I really hate the sight of my knees, but sometimes that just can't be helped. I also can't decide if this top is more Old Hollywood or Old Lady, but I like it so I don't care either way.

Floaty transparent top: Adrienne Vittadini via Marshall's
White tank: Old Navy
Tan shorts: Old Navy
Beaded "peacock" sandals: Chinese Laundry

Vacation outfit number two. Not much to say about this one, except that I love sundresses in the summer. And I love the aqua/turquoise color of this print.

Turquoise jersey dress: Target
Cropped cardigan: Old Navy
Beaded "peacock" sandals: Chinese Laundry
Giant starfish necklace: Self-made from a bead shop

Vacation outfit number three. This was a super casual day during which I made a huge spicy shrimp boil. I wasn't about to dress up, but I still wanted some color. This necklace is one of my very favorite items of all time.

Sunflower yellow tank: Lands End
Long olive shorts: Dockers
Coral and tan sandals: Bass
Wooden bead necklace: Local jewelry shop

Vacation outfit number four: Okay, I forgot to take a picture of myself that day. I had to crop this one out of another photo... you'll have to use your imagination, I guess! I wore this kneelength ruffled sundress with the coral sandals from above.

Brown/pink/purple floral sundress: Old Navy
White camisole: Costco
Coral and tan sandals: Bass

All too soon, time to go home. This was my travel outfit on the way back. My jeans were too saggy to wear again (don't you hate that about jeans with "stretch?" On me, they're only good for one day) but I wanted my legs covered because I get cold on planes.
Side note: Did you know that if you wear a long skirt on a plane you are more likely to get frisked because you might be concealing who-only-knows-what under your skirt? Well. Now you know.

Butterfly-print maxi dress: Old Navy
White camisole: Costco
White cardigan: Target
Beaded "peacock" sandals: Chinese Laundry
Mini starfish necklace: Target
Long chain: gift

So. That's it! Back to reality now. Re-entry is always the hardest part.
