Welcome to my blog! My name is Isabel and I am a wife and mother of 3 gorgeous little boys! I am a city girl living in a tropical paradise known as The Florida Keys. As much as a relaxed laid back lifestyle this is, I wanted to share my knowledge and style with the rest of the world before it evaporated in this heat and prove that you can do all you set your mind and heart to! I hope you enjoy my journey as much as I enjoy putting it together!

Comfy and Chic
The Florida Keys are all about relaxation and comfort. But I believe you don't have to compromise appearance to reach a high comfort level. You can be comfortable and still look polished and put together at the same time.
Anyone that lives or has visited the Keys knows theres bicycles everywhere and everyone uses them. So I thought my dads vintage bicycle combined with this outfit was appropriate for this post to show that you can look cute and enjoy a bike ride at the same time. Let's talk gladiator sandals for a second, definitely a hot trend right now. Whether they're ankle high or knee high, choose a style and get a pair. They look hot with shorts (for this heat) or a cute little dress. These JustFab gladiators are surprisingly comfortable. I honestly was hesitant to purchase them but I'm so glad I did. I highly recommend them as they are comfortable and affordable. A simple flowy top and shorts can go a long way if you accessorize them. And you don't need to spend a fortune to do so. Here is a breakdown of my total cost for this outfit:
Top: $22 (via Hautelook)
Shorts: $9 (Dream Out Loud via Kmart)
Hat: $5.99 (Bealls Outlet)
Sunglasses: $4.95 (H&M)
Bracelet: $3 (Bealls Outlet)
Total without sandals: $44.94
Sandals: 39.95 (via Justfab) (Much more affordable than many gladiator sandals)
Total including shoes and all accessories: $84.89
I would say thats a bargain for an entire outfit. Especially for pieces that are versatile!
Have a great day!
