We'll be leaving the Sunday after the wedding to go Siesta Key, Florida, where we'll be staying at the gorgeous Captiva Beach Hotel. Part of the reason that we chose Siesta Key is that while neither of us have been to that part of Florida, my mom spent part of her childhood living in Sarasota. I've heard about that area my whole life, and am super exicted to see it for my self. The other part that drew us to the area is that while our honeymoon is during a prime Spring Break week, we didn't want to fight drunken college kids for beach space. This area has some night life, but not too much of an MTV crowd (no offense to MTV- I watch True Life religiously)
I can't wait to spend a week on the beach, and the upcoming trip has given me an excuse to start shopping for spring clothes a little early.
I tend to plan my wardrobe each season around a given color pallete - fall/winter has been black, red, and yellow. It helps me create outfits while I'm shopping at different stores, and just makes life easier. Last spring/summer, I did hot pink, blush pink, and navy, and I'll be building on that this year, with a honeymoon/spring/summer choice of hot pink and lime green (Please tell me someone else out there thinks this way, and that I'm not just a huge dork ;) )
I went to Old Navy over the weekend and got these cute little things:
