Fun in the Sun

Almost everyday spent on my trip to Florida consisted of swimming and sunbathing both by the pool and the beach. Now that I'm back in Toronto, it feels weird not to be swimming or sunbathing all the time, but the essentials stay the same almost wherever I am: A magazine, sunnies, and my new mini MK wallet.

Here are a few shots I took while at the pool during my trip that I love.

Pina Coladas in Pineapples, FL

Sitting on the balcony of a friend's beach side aboad in southern Florida as we wait for the fireworks to erupt from the bridge on the ocean.

This is my *delayed* fourth of July post! It was my first time celebrating fourth of July (i'm Canadian) and I didn't even know that there were actually events going on at certain beaches with major fireworks etc. until the day before. Here's how the day went.

I had already planned my fourth of July OOTD before hand: My red white and blue bikini set from Aerie, my red(ish) shorts from JCrew and a white lightweight beach cover up from H&M. 

For morning and lunch, we stayed in, went to swim by the pool, and took some photos. Around 3, we made our way to the beach where the entire parking space was closed down and replaced with tons of food vendors, a concert stage, and games! I wish it would be like that everyday. I tried some buttered corn on the cob and a virgin Pina Colada in a Pineapple!

After some time chilling out by the ocean, we went to the beachside aboad for some drinks, dinner and desserts pre-fireworks. Right when the clock struck 9pm, the fireworks began and I've never seen anything quick like this before! I thought Canada went big with it's birthday on July 1st but America does it bigger. So many fireworks for at least a good 30 minutes! The best was the fireworks that look like a waterfall down the side of the dock. Pretty awesome.

Next year, I hope to be back somewhere in the states with my friends!

Postcards From Florida

Currently at the beach writing an update for you guys! Even though the ocean water isn't the best, the sun is still shining and i'm soaking it all in... trying to tan my pale, pale skin.

I took some photos at the beach and on my flight today that I had to share because I thought they were just too good not to! My little pineapple friend stole my favourite Raybans...
