Travel Style


Dress - Target / Sandals - Payless (old) / Necklace - gifted / Bracelet - Michael Kors / Bag - Coach (similar)



I spent the last week in Saint Augustine, where it was freaking hot.  I don't know how you Southern gals do it, I was dripping sweat.  Because of the heat, I chose this light dress (last seen here) and minimal accessories for an afternoon of exploring (or, at least an hour of exploring before retreating to an air conditioned bar for many glasses of sangria).

I thought I was just heading to the beach for a week, I had no idea that Saint Augustine is such a historic city.  It touts itself as America's oldest continuous settlement, and was founded as a Spanish colony in the 1500's.  Walking through the streets downtown literally felt like going back in time, that is, until I saw the signs for haunted pirate tours.  These pictures were taken around Castillo de San Marcus, a fort just outside the downtown that's full of cannonballs.

And now, for good measure, here's a picture of me on a cannon:
