Okay, so I’m sitting here writing about last weekend’s girl’s trip to Naples, Florida while in the airport as we are getting this weekend’s adventure underway. So far as shit is hitting the fan on this current trip (I’ll fill you in later) looking back to last weekend is nice, and I’m so glad I got some quality BFF time.

Joelle’s New Found Florida Style

My best friend and I made a girl’s trip to Naples Florida¬†to visit our other best friend who has recently moved down to the sunshine state. It is just getting into the rainy season and it did in fact rain the whole damn time. Regardless, it was nice to do girl things like shop and hang out and go get food and drinks.

But, because it was so dreary we were inside quite a bit, which was absolutely fine considering how cute, clean, cozy, and tastefully decorated Joelle’s apartment is. She is a full-on northern chick, so far hates Florida, but fits right in with the bougie-ness of Naples. So, it was interesting to see how she has incorporated her style with a “coastal glam” in their modern, airy, apartment. She certainly kept her style, with the mirrored furniture, mixed metals, and plush, luxurious textures. Then, she said she wanted to mix in some color because “I mean, it’s Florida” — those were her words exactly, and if you know Joelle and how she feels about living in Florida I’m sure you can just imagine her rolling her eyes as she says it. Anyways, the apartment is light and gray, so she complimented with bright blues, yellows, and touches of pink. She even mixed in some copper in the kitchen to go with the dark wood cabinets and stainless appliances, adding a sense of color to her kitchen. It reminds me of her style when it comes to fashion. She stays true to her roots in neutrals (people from where we are from tend not to wear many colors) but every once in a while depending on the occasion or location she’ll mix it up. Should I ask her where she got anything/everything? Let me know in the comments!

Naples Fun

It was a great girl’s weekend in Naples Florida frolicking around getting our nails done and talking about weddings and our jobs and boys and whatever else girls can talk about for hours on end. Below are some of the places we went including my FAVORITE decorated out-door patio (besides any I’ve seen in Italy). The Continental in Naples is gorgeous, and seriously covers all of the different types of decor that I love. The garden-like feel mixed with a touch of rustic are balanced by the chandeliers, which add a sense of grandeur. Also– the hanging wine dispensers, so cool and trendy! It was a fab trip despite the rain and I love my besties to death. Here’s a roundup of where we went if you’re ever in the area!
