Weekending | Quick Trip to Florida

Happy Monday & happy May friends! This weekend my sister and I made the quick trip down to Florida to celebrate our cousin's baby shower! These types of trips are always fun because you hit the highlights and get to see family and friends that you normally wouldn't! 
The most important of first stop of the weekend was to see our grandmother's! 

Our favorite stop in Jacksonville - the St. John's Town Center...the hub for all the shopping there! 
Sometimes I forget that Florida is literally paradise as evidenced by the pool at our cousin's development! Spending a few hours by this pool was pretty amazing! 
Scooped this little romper up on Thursday before leaving at TJ Maxx. It's a brand called Dhalia and I can't seem to find them anywhere, but I did love the scalloped detail on the top so I decided, why not?! I also brought my block heels that are proving to be a staple this spring! You'll see them later in the post as well! 
You know what makes a really great dinner - conversation that leads you to closing down the restaurant and the staff all but shoo'ing you out!! I was able to enjoy one of Jacksonville's newest restaurants,  South Kitchen + Spirits, on Saturday night with some of my oldest friends!

How cute is this cake?! Almost too good to eat! 


Sunday was the main event and the entire reason for our trip - the baby shower! It was a perfect afternoon - quality time with family & cousins that I don't get to see nearly enough!! It was quick, but oh so sweet & now I'm ready for May & hopefully the good weather we are going to have here in Boston! 
How was your weekend? Link up below to share it with us!

  11. It never ceases to amaze me how much alike you and your sister look! I think it's because at first glance you look so different with your hair colors, then BAM! Twins :) Quick trips to see family are so good for the soul! Nathan is making a quick trip to Jacksonville this week too, just for a much different, boring reason (work!). Glad you had a good weekend!

  18. A HUGE congrats to your cousin on expecting her little bundle of joy, she looks so beautiful and the cake is absolutely amazing; I love the princess theme! I think it's awesome that you and your sister were able to make it to Florida to celebrate. I have to make note of that restaurant because Eddie has some family who lives in Jacksonville, so the next time we visit, I'll have to check it out! Also, I see you did get the LV bag that was on your birthday wishlist! I love it and it looks so good on you, such a versatile piece and one I'd love to add to my collection as well; I'd love if you did a review sometime down the line! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you're having a great start to your new month and week!

  43. Sounds like a great trip with family. Are the first pair of shorts from Loft - I recognized them right away. Love that whole black look with that fun scalloped tank, too. But my favorite is your baby shower outfit - that skirt is super chic, what brand is it from?! Also, your cousin's baby shower cake is gorgeous.

    You really need to linkup with me this week. The linkup will be open a day early on Wednesday. You have so many cute looks in this post, you need to share them. =))

    Happy May B!! <3 Ada.

  50. It's definitely so important to see your grandmother's and spend some time with them when you live far away. You packed the cutest outfits for this trip from the romper to the baby shower outfit both going so well with the block heels! The pool at our cousin's development looks gorgeous along with the views from the balcony. I don't think I've ever seen a more precious baby shower cake! Sounds like you packed it full of family and fun in just a short weekend!
