It seems like only yesterday I had on my puffy winter jacket. Then almost overnight Florida decided to welcome spring. We’ve enjoyed a couple of absolutely beautiful days lately, and Jacksonville Beach once again welcomed beachgoers. It was the perfect occasion to pull out this gorgeous yellow dress for spring.
With all of the drama of our kitchen (post to come soon) I really, REALLY needed an escape to the beach. There’s a reason Florida has endless summer license plates. Spring break is just around the corner, and it is starting to feel like summer again. It should come as no surprise that I would come to the ocean for a little R&R. I made a promise to myself to hit up Jacksonville Beach more this year. I’ve taken the beauty of where I live for granted lately and I vowed to myself that this year I will explore more of what our area has to offer.
I’ve been really fortunate lately in meeting other local creative entrepreneurs. Yuri, a fellow blogger and statement jewelry connoisseur at Conscious Statement, and I met through Insta after she sweetly featured me on her account. That very same night, we got to meet IRL at an event for Tijuana Flats. She and I hit it off, and we’ve met up for coffee and macarons to discuss blog and social media strategies for growth. We have even begun shooting photos for each other.
I feel so blessed to finally meet other bloggers locally. I was beginning to think that there weren’t enough bloggers in Jacksonville for events, as Orlando and Miami are the more populated cities in Florida. It’s great to be around people who get it and also have the same goals and ambitions.
I bought this yellow off-the-shoulder dress from SHEIN last year. To be honest, I didn’t think I’d wear it since it was much flouncier than I expected. The ocean breeze gave this dress very flattering and much-appreciated movement. The Starlight statement earrings I’m wearing are available at Yuri’s shop where you’ll find other fabulous pieces. I’ve already eyed several I’m coveting for my closet!
I had fun playing the part of a fashion blogger for this shoot. Spring break is already around the corner, and I’m itching to buy cute new clothes. I’m all about comfortable and affordable fashion, so I will most likely be hitting up SHEIN again. This dress is sold out, but I linked a few options below.
