what i wore in seaside, florida

Oh to be back at the beach instead of here in my room in Dallas, TX! I’m finally back after a wonderful, restful week in Seaside, Florida and as much as I’m missing the salty air and tan lines, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t happy to be getting back into a routine here around Lonestar Southern!

Today, I thought it would be fun to share details to the outfits I wore on this vacation! I know fall inspiration is around every corner with the #NSale, but since we still have months left of hot weather here in Texas, I figured it might be fun to switch things up.

A few things I want to point out… I found the best, not outrageously expensive swimsuits from ASOS! I’d size up one or two sizes from your normal US size. For instance, I’m usually a size 0 in dresses, but wear a US 4 in ASOS swim!

Secondly, I shot one of my favorite projects to date on this trip… did you catch it here?

And finally, I shared on my IG stories today that the search for my mom’s fabulous Panama hat (that I stole multiple times on this trip) is ON! I found a similar style and have linked it below, but let me know if you can track down the exact hat!

Tomorrow, I’ll be sharing my family’s favorite restaurants on 30A and my family’s favorite restaurants… stay tuned, and happy scrolling!

    Hey Kate! Can you do a tutorial on how you tied that scarf as a top? I LOVE the look but have no idea how you managed it :). Thanks!
