This winter was truly a rough one. I don’t think in the 25 years of me living in Georgia I had ever been so continuously cold. I didn’t leave the house for a month and had my duvets doubled up with extra blankets pulled up past my ears. So, we left and sought sunshine somewhere more southerly – Naples Florida.
As soon as you step off the plane in Naples, you’re greeted with warm air and sunshine that Naples is known for. My happiness returned immediately once I felt the radiating warmth of the long-forgotten sun and we raced over to our favorite spot downtown, Campiello, for a quick bite to eat in celebration.
Since we were finally in warm weather, I used it as an excuse to throw on this striped dress from Draper James. The nautical stripes were perfect for our Italian villa setting and, as with most exciting dress features, it has pockets! The sleek stripe of the dress helped me immediately immerse in vacation mode.
Even though we were only in South Florida, the atmosphere helped us feel oceans away from our original destination. A perfect introduction to vacation.
