Today is part 2 in which I’m sure is to be a week-long recap of our trip to Florida.
If you missed part 1, it’s linked here for you!
We spent the week in Rosemary Beach on 30A for the week. If you’re not familiar with this part of Florida, I’ll sum it up for ya! 30A is a about a thirty mile long highway in between Destin & Panama City, Florida. This stretch of highway houses the quaintest most picturesque beach towns in the entire state of Florida. (In my opinion, at least!)
Rosemary Beach, where we stayed, sits towards the end of 30A, but just right next to & within walking distance is the idyllic town of Alys Beach.
Throughout our trip, my mom & I would walk over to Alys Beach in the mornings to have our coffee and stroll about the gorgeous houses.
And you guys, these houses aren’t like anything you’d find in the rest of the country.
Giant palm trees line Alys Beach’s stretch of 30A, making it instantly recognizable.
All of the houses in this precious beach town are whitewashed and look straight out of the French or Italian Coast.
There’s a bit of Santorini vibe going on too, with all of the blue and white decor & architecture. (my favorite!)
And when your dress matches the blue window shutters, you’ve simply got to take some photos!
This cute flowy beachy dress is from Houston’s own Mulberry Muse. Mulberry Muse is an online consignment boutique featuring high end “re-runs” at great prices as well as new items too!
I stocked up on a couple of their pieces for this trip, so you better believe I’ll be sharing more later.
Shopping destinations like Mulberry Muse are great for purchasing resort wear in the off season.
After all, a good deal never goes out of style, no matter the season.
My mom and I had so much fun wandering the courtyards and alleyways of Alys Beach.
If you plan to visit Alys Beach, be sure to make some time to stroll through (or at least rent a bike) when seeing the town. This way you’ll get to see all of the architectural details & decor up close and personal.
How gorgeous is the entrance to the Alys Beach pool?!?!
We sneaked a peak at what the actual pool looked like, (knowing it would be stunning, just based on the entrance.) We were not disappointed.
Now the two of us are yearning to go back and enjoy it ourselves!
I’m thinking a mother-daughter long weekend may be in the works soon? Please mom? I know you’re reading this! 😉
A few more Florida style posts are hitting the blog later this week, as well as our favorite things to do in Seaside! (Another precious town on 30A!)
And as always, thanks for stopping by the blog!
