It’s getting warmer here in South Florida and that means shorts weather. I pulled out these English Rose sequined shorts that I bought some time ago from a boutique in Soho, New York. I was just thinking how much I appreciate small boutiques. You find some of the most unique items to add to your wardrobe! FARFETCH is supporting boutiques around the world with increased visibility, help running their business and a cut to the boutique cost to use their platform by 25%. Take a look at the sale here.
But, anyway, I love these shorts but honestly didn’t get to wear them that much in New York because of the weather. But I’ve kept them and gave my outfit some pizazz with them today. Changed it up and wore them with sneakers. They can easily be dressed up and down. What have you been wearing to run your “essential” errands?

So, ever since I hit South Florida, the foodie in me has been looking for some of the best eats in town. Well I’ve found a few and I just have to share. Between the fresh seafood, Cubans and Haitians in Florida, you are never without something good to eat.
Anyway so here they are…
1. Guava and cheese pastry from Tulipan Bakery
Between empanadas, croquetas and these guava and cheese pastries it’s a wonder that I haven’t gained any weight since I’ve been here. Grab a couple of these pastries and some croquetas de jamón for a great breakfast.
2. Twice Baked Potatoes from Pinders Seafood
Geez. I have no idea what they put in these potatoes. On a cheat day, I actually will go for one of these. It has to be potato mixed with cream and cheese and God knows what but it’s soo good! I had them with some shrimp scampi and it was the perfect match.
3. Oyster Shooters from Spoto’s Oyster Bar
If you like oysters with the works…(i.e. horseradish, cocktail sauce) these are some of the best in town. The oysters are really fresh and delicious. You have to pair them with a good glass of wine or a cocktail and you’ll be all set to go.
If you’re in the area, let me know if you’ve tried some of these and if you’re a fan too.
