Ava Grace's Closet: The Florida Edition

The Florida Edition

Although Florida may not be known as the fashion capital of the world, I gotta tell you - I saw some fabulous stuff while I was shopping visiting.
Professional women do a damn good job of "business casual" considering it's like 500 degrees on  most summer days. I particularly enjoyed visiting Starbucks or Panera on weekday mornings and checking out the crowd.

Most girls seemed to be rocking a variation of this look.
A totally casual tank (basically an undershirt) with dress pants and heels.
Most of them did not rock the Chanel handbag. But hey, most girls are not Amanda Seyfried. Whatever.

Fla shopping is next to none. In this girl's opinion.
Here in T.O. designer handbags never (and I mean never) go on sale.
Imagine my surprise when I walked into Saks and saw a table full marked CLEARANCE(are you kidding me?)
Naturally, I couldn't decide. The deals were that good.
So I left.
And then couldn't stop thinking about this one black, simple (the leather is like butter) Tory Burch shoulder bag.
I went back the very next day. Like the day we were getting ready to fly out.
And now she lives here with me.
For under $225. 
Seriously unheard of.

Maxi dresses are still everywhere.
My husband laughed at me when I wore mine in that heat. Not so new.
This one by Victoria's Secret is lovely.
And comes in a ton of sweet colors.

And still...nothing says Florida like a little Lilly Pulitzer, non?
I might choose this.
Since all that sunshine really does have you feeling compelled to follow the locals lead and ditch anything more than a hint of black on most days.
So liberating. 
Here's little miss in her version of all out color.
In shades of pink and aqua.


Because she's cool like that.
And you gotta stay cool in that heat.

Happy Friday Fashionistas!

  2. I know Florida - or anywhere in the states, a sale really is a sale and an outlet mall really is an outlet mall ... unlike here :( .. When I vist my sister at her winter home in Florida; or my friend in NYC - I'm always amazed at selection and affordability of designer brands.

    Your little Miss looks tres sweet .. and you gotta love the shirt!!

    Wishing you a fabulous week-end...HHL
