I got inspired and excited to make the blue and white stripe bias-into-chevron dress I made shortly before the trip, but wasn't sure it was going to be warm enough for such strappiness. Well, it was in the 80's most days we were there, and I did get a chance to wear it! One of the days of our trip, we took my uncle's boat out from their canal-ey neighborhood on the northeastern side of St. Petersburg and down into the Tampa Bay toward downtown St. Pete. Then we cruised up to these tiny treed islands farther north, kind of toward Weedon Island State Preserve, to do some fishing! Husband and I just learned to fish this trip and are super stoked. There are tons of fish in that area, really easy to catch something (although some are too small or not good to eat). So cool catching our own food!
Also, excited to be on a boat if you know what I mean.
Even nice enough to wear it without the jacket for a while! Get an opportunity for some Vitamin D!
So glad my wishful thinking worked out and I got a chance to wear the ultimate warm weather item in my suitcase!
