Today's Everyday Fashion: Key West

These are the rest of the outfits I wore in Key West! I wore this first outfit for traveling. I took the Key West Express - a high-speed boat that takes you from either Fort Myers or Marco Island to Key West in just a few hours. I had barely any sleep the night before, so I was way tired, and while I may not look great, I was still digging the boho vibe of my outfit! (The shorts and tank are new, everything else is old.)

Cardigan: H&M, $18 (similar)
Shirt: c/o LaMixx on Etsy, $24
Shorts: American Eagle, $25
Necklace: H&M, old (similar)
Belt: c/o RogueRetro on Etsy, $15
Shoes: Diba/Nordstrom Rack, $40 (similarsimilar)
Sunglasses: H&M, $6

This ensemble is what I wore snorkeling. Snorkeling is my absolute most favorite activity in the whole wide world, so even though this was mostly a work trip for VISIT FLORIDA, I simply couldn't leave the Keys without booking an excursion to check out the reef. (It didn't disappoint!) And finally, below is what I wore for the last day of shopping research. (You may remember I posted this outfit earlier this week with a purple cardigan.) I loved Key West even more than I thought I would, and I can't wait to go back! What is your favorite travel destination?

    Thanks Jennifer! I'm letting it all hang out in this post, lol. I've been off my workout game for about 6 months now, and while I don't feel great about it, I am also a big believer in loving your body just the way it is! No body shame! :-)

  13. I am LOVING those Gap shorts! And your puppy is adorable!

  14. Awesome outfits!

    Wearing an outfit inspired by you...green flowy tank, striped navy and white jacket (like yours), denim trouser pants, a white/red polka dot long scarf and brown leather wedge sandals. Would never have put that together a month ago.

  15. I love the color combinations. My favorite travel destination is Italy. Going again for two weeks in the fall! Yay!

  20. To be totally honest!!!!  I posted this yesterday... I LOVE Key West!  We are going back in 2013!  I think we are going to try the ferry next time.  We fly from Minnesota usually into Miami and drive down, but the ferry sounds fun.  Love your outfits!

  23. I have to ask... what color do you have on your toes?  I love how bright it is!

  24. jseverydayfashionJune 21, 2012 at 1:56 PM

    Thanks Meredith! The brand is Sinful Color Professionals and the color is 24/7. I got it at Target, and added a clear topcoat (It's matte without it).

  25. Love the bright neon necklace with your bikini! Can't believe the deal you scored on it too! Neon is one of my favorite trends this season. 

  26. Key West is so much fun. Going in a couple weeks! I discovered your blog via Pinterest and must say it's one of my faves! I love fashion blogs but yours is the only one where I actually find myself saying "oh wow, I'd actually wear that!" Love the way you pair colors and aren't afraid of them. I find myself thinking back to your blog when I shop!

  27. jseverydayfashionJune 21, 2012 at 4:08 PM

    Thank you so much Kelli! I definitely try to share things you guys can actually wear. Thanks for saying hi and welcome to the blog! :-)

  28. Those jean shorts in the first photo are the perfect length!


  29. I love Key West. I'm jealous! All of your outfits are perfect for a vacation. Relaxed but still fun bright colors!

  30. I love Key West!  We went once as a family when I was about 13-14 and I have always wanted to go back an experience it as an adult.  Snorkeling there was awesome.

    As usual, you look amazing and I wish I looked 1/2 as pulled together as you.  

  31. I have never been to Key West, but I want to go SO badly! Cabo is beautiful if you ever get a chance to go there.

    Love the outfits, and your body is bangin! Go girly!!


  32. Loving the fun boho vibe of your first look, and lady, your abs are some workout motivation!! Hope you had a great time.

    Didn't know there was a boat from Marco Island to Key West.  That is much nicer than driving! Enjoy!



  34. Fun in the Sun. It looks like you're having a blast. My favorite travel destination has been Vegas, but this year I will be on the search for a new location and it'll probably be some place tropical

  35. Sinful Color is one of my favorite brands.  Thank you!!  I have the violent purple color (no other way to explain it and I don't have the bottle with me) and it dries the same.  Thank you so much!  Your blog is one of my favorite haunts!  Thanks for all the fantastic ideas!

  36. I bought these same GAP shorts in the black and white tribal and like you said they're great! I've paired them with some fun bright neon colors and waiting to get a few pics snapped in them to post. Thanks for always sharing everyday!

  37. What nail polish color are you wearing on your toes? I love it!! 

  38. jseverydayfashionJune 26, 2012 at 12:28 PM

    The brand is Sinful Color Professionals and the color is 24/7. I got it at Target and added a clear topcoat!

  39. I am a new reader, just came across your site from Pinterest, and I am already a huge fan! You've got great taste and lots of interchangeable pieces. I hope it not too personal to ask, what type of bra do you normally wear with all of your strappy/racerback tops?

  40. jseverydayfashionJune 28, 2012 at 10:48 PM

    Hi Stacey and welcome to the blog! :-) Always happy to help. I wear a regular strapless bra. I try to get one that fits well and has some padding but nothing overboard. I actually updated my strapless right after this trip (needed to be replaced), I found a good one that fit (can't remember the brand) at Kohl's.

  41. Looks like you had a great time! Love the casual looks!
