A quick hello from The Sunshine State!

I kind of had to bring this citrus print dress to Florida... oh, and I got Bettie bangs!!
Hi, all!  I have a regular outfit post planned for tomorrow (with some photos I took a few weeks ago), but I wanted to stop by for a very quick hello!  My mom and I have been super busy with my grandma these past couple of days, so I haven't had much time to sit down and write posts (though I have been taking pictures with my DSLR... or trying to, anyway!), but here's a fast update...

This photo did not do this Florida sunset justice!
My grandma is really not doing very well, unfortunately, and I wasn't totally prepared for that.  My heart aches for my mom, too.  I'm really glad I could be here with her this time, since she normally has to come down to visit on her own.  Although she's been having a very tough time, my grandma is still incredibly sharp and witty.  This year is going to be hard, but I'm determined to cherish her for as long as we possibly can.  Thank you to everyone who has reached out with well wishes; they mean more to me than you could ever know!  <3 

My beautiful grandma.  My mom looks so much like her.
I'm giving semi-regular vacation updates on my Instagram, by the way!  So follow along if you want to see what I'm up to (and we'll be in Disney World starting tomorrow, so if you want to be flooded with Disney Magic, here's your chance to live vicariously)!  :)

During our 4 our layover in JFK...
Amazing lunch of pineapple fried rice with chicken and cashews!
Been watching lots of this great period whodunit series with my mom.
Yesterday's outfit -- which weirdly reminds me of Blanche Deveraux from The Golden Girls

That's all for now!  Have a great Monday!

  1. you look gorgeous! love those outfits you're wearing!

  2. WHERE is that citrus dress from? I need!

    Also, more seriously--I'm sorry about your grandma. I went through something similar, and I know it is very difficult. My advice is to just enjoy as much of her as you can, and support your mom however she needs it. Love you! <3

  3. Oh man, when you said sunshine state ( even though that is clearly Florida- haha) for a split second I thought you might be here in So Cal! Love the bettie bangs on you- way cute! Alex

  4. Both of those outfits seem SO appropriate to FL.

    Also it is so good that you and your mom were able to spend time with your grandmother. Have fun on vacation.

  5. Sorry about your grandma! <3 Enjoy your little vacation!!

    Those bangs and dresses are perfect.

  6. Looks like you are having a really great time! I could do with some nice sun!

    So sorry about your nan, I hope you get to enjoy all the time you have together. Take care!

  7. Sammi, if you EVER sell that Blanche Deveraux dress, PLEASE call me first! I NEED IT.
