After coming to Boca Grande for the last 14 years, it now feels more like home than Chicago. Everyone needs that escape from the cold weather to a warmer climate – if only for a week. This last week in Florida was exactly what I needed – a break from work, my social life and my volunteering. It gave me the renewed strength I needed to keep going and start planning my future. After visiting the south this time, it just clicked, this feels right. I didn’t want to leave, I didn’t want to have to come back to Denver. But alas, I did… at least for now.
One of the best parts of the summer getaway is the opportunity to show and wear the new summer trends. I purchased this dress from Nordstrom only 2 days before I left. Long dresses definitely aren’t my go to. Being only 5’3″, they can be hard to pull off. BUT this one made me feel like a million bucks and I think that is exactly what clothes should do – give you that confidence you need! The high-low hem is perfect and adds a wonderful detail to the dress. It is a classic and feminine piece I will be wearing all summer.
