The Sweetest Lemons

My first trip to Old Florida we spent some time at the Gasparilla Inn and Beach Club. The Beach Club has the cutest umbrellas with yellow stripes that matched my top and bag perfectly! It's so quiet and relaxing there, and guests have access to a private beachfront...if you're not so into sandy crevices, you can sit next to the pool or do a few laps and enjoy an ocean view while listening to the waves!

Riding into Summer

One of my favorite things to do is just explore new neighborhoods. Whether it's take a drive around a new area or running down a new street, I love looking at people's homes and gardens and seeing how each community has its own unique feel. Every time I go to Tampa it's on a whirlwind trip and there isn't much downtime. However, this last trip Ashley made sure we had a little time to relax and one morning she made arrangements with the Epicurean Hotel to take these adorable bikes on a ride around Hyde Park Village. Seriously, those baskets!

There's a reason why seersucker is so popular, especially in summer formal wear and suiting:  The light, cotton fabric is cool and airy and the texture hides obnoxious wrinkles easily, making it perfect for any type of warm weather activity.
