If you guys are new to BSB, I’ve been sharing some of my favorite places and styles from me spring break trip to Florida that I took earlier this month. You can check out my other days here! Today’s post is about one of my favorite murals located on Pineapple Grove on Atlantic Avenue, in Delray Beach! I love all the fun colors and, of course, the pineapples!
I’m loving all things pineapple right now (like so many others). I actually recently purchased the cutest pineapple drink mixer from Tommy Bahama at Marshall’s. You can find a similar one here from amazon!
Anyway, my mom and I stayed pretty close to Atlantic Avenue, so we made frequent stops there. On our way to dinner at Park Tavern, we stopped by this mural to capture a few shots. We also walked around through some shops. I always love to go into the Tommy Bahama store on Atlantic (and the one by me at home) because I am in love with the smell. If you haven’t been in, and don’t know what I’m talking about, you need to go and smell for yourself.
Another favorite shop of mine is the Snappy Turtle, everything is so bright and colorful. It’s really like a dream. Even their dressing rooms are adorable. I love to stop in when I’m in the area and see all the bright patterns.

In case you haven’t begun to notice from my last couple of posts, I have been wearing a lot of blue and white so far (and there’s only more to come). I love blue and white together, especially in spring and summer. It makes sense too considering I chose them for my site’s colors, my room, and a huge part of my wardrobe. I think the colors go well together and remind me of my favorite place to be – by the water!
I have also noticed that this trend is catching on. A lot of the stuff I have been seeing at my favorite stores are featuring a lot of blue and white and a lot of stripes! For dinner on Monday night, my mom and I went to a restaurant in Boca, called Louie Bossi. I went there on NYE this year for dinner before heading out for the night. I love their food, especially their pizza which they cook for 90 seconds at 900ºF. It comes out crisp on the bottom but with a nice doughy center to the crust.
For dinner, my mom and I split a wild mushroom pizza and the lobster pasta special they had. It was all so good. I can’t wait to go back next time I’m down there. Before heading to dinner though, we stopped at Mizner Park for a little and walked around. I love Mizner for two reasons. First, the shops are the best! I love to walk through them and see all the cute stuff. Second, it’s pink!…enough said.

Day two brought even more sunshine and warm weather. On the first day, my mom and I quickly realized that the waves were pretty sneaky after they managed to catch us both by surprise. Today wasn’t any different. About halfway into our shoot a big wave came up and soaked us both. I decided to just give in at that point and proceeded to have a blast in the sand. My mom and I also had a blast trying to get all the sand out of my new eyelet shorts…(don’t worry they survived).
Day one also left us a little too sun-kissed so we did our best to hang in the shade a little more. After hitting the beach for the little, and taking our usual stroll, we stopped by the pool where we were staying. It was mostly empty which was really nice too – I felt like I was queen of the pool having it all to myself.
When I saw these white eyelet, ruffle shorts at Forever 21, I wasn’t sure if I would like them. I loved the details and the material, but I am usually not crazy about the skort style. When I tried them on though, I loved how they fit! They were a tad see-through so I will have to make sure to wear nude under. As a cover up though, they were great, and I really like how they looked with my simple white bikini top. The look reminds me of one of my favorite pictures of Grace Kelly (who is one of my favorite people ever).
I mean just look at her! She is such an icon and so beautiful. Anyway…more about my sunny trip to come so stay tuned!
