aka ADULT SPRING BREAK
yes, we created our own hashtag on Instagram and yes, it was #ladiezbeachtimez!
since my Memorial Day weekend plans had changed due to the breakup I immediately jumped on board with a crew of girls going down to Panama City Beach. it wasn’t till last minute that it turned out we would be boarding a private plane and Ashley’s dad was going to FLY us down there saving 5.5/6 hours of travel time, gas money, multiple pit stops and the headache of holiday weekend traffic. what a pleasant surprise all of it was! here’s a lil recap of our experience in PCB-
the crew (L to R) Flashy, Mal, J Step, Ashley & Roberta
such a celeb, even getting photo-bombed!
Alex + Alex dress, Gap denim jacket, Oakley shades, vintage Saks Fifth Ave bag, Frye sandals
the ride was a lil bumpy while we reached our cruising altitude and then smoothed out, we toasted the trip with Prosecco and then before we knew we were landing! easy breezy. travel time was around 1hr vs 6, now that’s the life!
on to beach timez:
brought the same swim suits I bought in Hawaii but mixed them up with different accessories and cover-ups. like this Piko “dress” I got at the Mart, never have worn it as a dress, but works great as a cover up from condo to beach!
we kept getting asked if we were responsible for these massive sand castles that were built near us, we joked that we should just start taking credit. word of advice lil kiddos: don’t leave your castle unattended, for late 20 somethings will still your thunder!
i spy: many’a folks that shouldn’t be wearing barely-there-swimwear #PCB
since Eliz had a TOMS event in ATL on the Friday we flew out, she had to meet us there Saturday but with her rented Dodge Charger complete with a HEMI she was there in no time to join the fun!
last day we went to St. Andrews State Park, where we floated and splashed around before heading back and packing up.
my beachware- Target tank, Free People shorts and Havaianas I picked up in Hawaii and a SWEET AIRBRUSH LF HAT I got a Alvin’s Island!
do I look like I’m getting stung by jelly fish? no. cool.. cause I sure as hell was!
pretty excited about my new hat, minus the guy doing the “lady” way small and sorta too high on the hat but hey, it’s from PCB and its airbrush and has a pineapple on it, I’m satisfied!
make’n it rainnnn!!!
sorta like I did with the dollar bills we paid to get into the state park with…now that I think about it, I’m sure Elizabeth loved having me as a car buddy… yelling HEMI every so often, dancing and playing air keyboard on the dash and making it rain. ya, I’m POSITIVE she loved it :P
“adult” Spring Break, pshhh.
rando kid I asked to take the above pic did a good job, right? haha.
playing around with layering, really like how this turned out! also love Eliz’s swimsuit, it’s by DKNY.
trip was exactly what I needed and included a little bit of everything: beach/pool/porch time including Corona’s and salted limes, hitting up a farmers & fish market then cooking in and playing silly games, eating a swanky dinner and a tad bit of beach party times including guys vs girls flip cup that we dominated! solid trip with my ladies!
thanks to my hospitable friends, love youuuu
next up: street style around Summerfest + Artlantis from this past weekend. gotta catch uppppp!
