Trendy Chic on the Beach

I went on vacation for a mere 6 days.
Unsurprisingly, my writing/style addiction got the best of me.


It was a primarily relaxing trip.
Fort Myers Beach, FL: So gorg, so easygoing. But there were down points.


After hunting down a local spot for my sugarfree & soy cappuccino…The Tuckaway Bagel, uber-delish… I couldn’t help but notice all the bling & neon flash on the beach bods all around me.
My stress levels peaked at the sight of such brights/ bedazzlements done all wrong.
A for effort but overall FAIL. Let’s work together on this one, guys.


Epiphany:
Accommodate the trendiest taste on the beach-front surf shops of Smalltown, USA. With eyes wide open, I believed & achieved.


The 90’s are so right NOW & so are these (uber-reasonable) pieces. Live/Love/Die for it.
Mix these pieces with studded denim shorts &/or a white fringe tank (maybe with some Jeffrey Campbell Litas you just so happened to order?) So set.

Now, I feel better. Grab these goodies & update that worrisome wardrobe.
