The warm weather has taken me outdoors to explore new places, old houses, and paddle boarding. I paid a trip to the Ca’ d’Zan in Sarasota a few weekends ago. The Ca’ d’Zan is the mansion that the owners of the Ringling circus called home during the winter months. It is a Mediterranean Revival mansion directly on the water which allows it to enjoy fabulous breezes and has some of the prettiest stained glass windows I have ever seen on a house.
The estate is now home to the Ringling Circus Museum which has displays that are equally as fascinating as they are haunting. The costumes definitely yelled at me and I spent quite a bit of time perusing their construction. There was a gigantic to-scale model of what the set up of the circus would have been back in the day as it traveled around the country – talk about attention to detail on some of those pieces!
I’ve had my eye on the Nikki dress by Martine’s Dream for quite some time. It looks like the quintessential, flowy, tropical, vacation sundress and oh, I am a lover of sundresses. I had a pretty tough time choosing between the green and the yellow.s Lately, the weather has been perfect for sundresses and since I snagged the Nikki dress I just had to put it on while walking around downtown St. Petersburg a few weekends ago.
I really like the artsy vibe of St. Pete. There are so many makers and creative souls scattered across the city and you can tell from just driving around because of the various sculptures and murals that you will pass. This mural has been my favorite since I moved across the bridge.
A few weekends ago I went down to Naples to see the Origami in the Gardens sculpture exhibit. It was eye opening, you can read my travel post about that here. Today, I’m sharing with you the outfit I wore that day. The Naples Botanic Garden had a gorgeous focal backdrop that worked perfectly for shooting this number so of course I just had to share it with you. The weather was at that point where the temperature was just perfect even in direct sunlight that you just HAD to wear a sundress and bask in it.
I have forever loved a crisp white button down, paired with dark denim. It is such a classic and timeless look. And you probably know, I just love a back detail. So when I came across this shirt I just had to have it!
I decided to pair this shirt with one of my recent Christmas presents – a statement necklace by Trinidadian brand we dream in colour. The blue hue is a patina so each piece is very unique.
