Running around like crazy today trying to get all my errands done before our trip this weekend! Threw on this dress that is so comfy and so cute! It’s lightweight and has an adjustable waist PLUS it comes in an adorable chambray color as well! Ordered it online from JCPennys along with a little something for Ted and a gift for the sister’s bday. I love that I can find a little of everything there and it’s all such good prices!
To be honest, Palm Beach was really never on my radar until recently. I wanted a chance to check out the trendy spot in Florida and y’all, we are so glad we did! Every corner was picturesque and I love any small town vibes going on. I wanted to share a few hot spots we checked out that I would highly recommend if you are in the area!
The Brazilian Court: So glad we decided to stay here! I am ALL for small boutique vibes where you aren’t just another room to the staff but they actually know you and you get to know other guests as well. We stayed in a 2 bedroom suite and it was more than enough room! The hotel was built in the 1920s with around 80 rooms to give you a better idea. The pool area was by far my favorite little spot. Such a relaxing getaway location that we spent most of our time at! Also, the location of the hotel was great for walking everywhere. We really didn’t need a car!
Fly Into //
We flew into FLL and it was about a 45-1 hour drive from the airport to Palm Beach! We rented a car but once we got to the island, we rarely used our car since everything was so close.
Where to eat //
Cafe Boulud – This was in The Brazilian Court and I highly recommend. We had breakfast here our first morning and then lunch the last day. Everything was sooooo good and fresh! Even if you aren’t staying at the hotel, pop in and have lunch here! I still think about the cobb salad and the courtyard set up is so dreamy.
Roccos Tacos – Wasn’t crazy about this spot only because I don’t think anyone does Tex Mex like Texas. They did have great fresh guac but I wasn’t a fan of my tacos!
Buccan – reservations are a MUST because this place is the hot spot. We asked y’all for some recommendations and this was constantly brought up! They didn’t have any reservations available for us the entire time we were there BUT we did show up at 6pm one evening and got a table at the bar. SO glad we did! The hot dog paninis and the cookies for dessert were sooooo good.
Seafood bar – this was at The Breakers when we went to explore and was so good! It also was highly requested by y’all! The bar has an adorable fish tank which is such a cute touch. We had lunch here but I can imagine their seafood selection for dinner was good!
I will list quickly other hot spots y’all recommended:
We mainly ate, drank, and sat by the pool! We also did some shopping on Worth Avenue which is a must, even to window shop! Also, a day at the beach is ALWAYS a good idea for the soul. Also since I am always so fascinated by hotels, hotel browsing is a good idea. We checked out The Breakers and The Colony! Since we went early March, I feel like there was NO one there. It’s such a small “older crowd” kind of town, so keep that in mind!
It’s time for chambray and white denim and I could not be more excited!! Spring is right around the corner so I have been stocking up on both. Found this top at Walmart and I am so happy with the price and quality of it. Plus loving the little details like the print on the sleeves and that the buttons snap which I think is so much easier than regular buttons lol. The top is part of Ellen DeGeneres’ EVI collection which I have shopped before and cannot say enough good things about it. I have my eye on a couple other pieces so I will definitely be ordering some more in the future!
I can’t say enough good things about this sweater. Its one of those finds that I have been sleeping in and just makes me super cheery. I actually am wearing it now while I am typing this because I plan on wearing it around town today since its still chilly. Luckily, this was a buy online, pick up in store find (Nordstrom calls it BOPUS)! It really is the most convenient way of shopping before a trip since things get so hectic and I usually am scrambling. Basically, you can filter out online what is found in your store, and then place an online order. Nordstrom has specialty parking where you can pick up the items and you don’t even have to get out of your car. Honestly, I over order, try on right then and there and return what I don’t like. I have been a loyal customer for years and love everything from their free shipping to free returns, free alterations, etc. Nordstrom’s spring arrivals have been trickling in so I did also pick up these jean shorts, these sandals, and a whole lot more! We went to Palm Springs to kick off an adult spring break which was sooooo relaxing. I promise to do a round up this week of all outfits and things we did!
Happy Wednesday! I swear every time I come home, the week just flies by!
