with the countdown to my miami trip less than a week away, ive got florida on the mind. and today is also a VERY special day- shoutout to my favorite floridian MS on turning 23 (thank god you get to break in this whole ‘getting old’ thing 5 months before me.) in honor of her big day im doing an homage to her cool floridian style and all the items that remind me of her.

#1 a bright maxiperfect for a day of shopping or a la casita vay cay (ugh- take me back!)

#2 a classic pair of shades – the perfect pair for bright rays, blonde hair and beachy water. ’nuff said.

#3 a simple sandal– don’t know why a good pair of t-strap sandals always remind me of you. love these colorblocked ones from j.crew. (also dyingggg over these girlie gladiators by loeffler randall- SO great)

#4 a colorful print- I guess this is what happens when you grow up in the land of lilly pulitzer, but you know how to wear a bright print better than most. Love this drapey style by lovers + friends. So cute for a hoos football game or a poolside bbq.

#5 a fun tote – your bag is usually something practical but you spice it up with interesting colors and details- this periwinkle blue Furla or a sunny yellow Phillip Lim fit the bill- definitely sunshine state gal worthy.
