This palm leaf print maxi dress from Sugar Lips is my favorite summer piece! This maxi dress has such a great “palm springs” print that is perfect for tropical vacations. I L-O-V-E the super cute criss-cross backless detail. I actually forgot to pack a sticky bra for this dress when we went to St. Pete Beach, Florida but honestly it was so hot and I was so sweaty that thing probably wouldn’t have stuck! I ended up wearing my strapless bra and just hooked it loose so I could wear the back low. It wasn’t super comfortable, but it worked!
I wore this dress while we ventured around St. Pete Beach and did a little shopping. The main street in St. Pete Beach is absolutely adorable. There are so many cute local shops carrying everything from clothing to home decor. We stopped in the local coffee shop to get a little afternoon caffeine fix. This is the first time I used agave as a sweetener in my coffee. It is amazing! I’ve used it for various baking, but never thought to use it in my coffee. I am trying to hold back on the Southern Butter Pecan coffee creamer because I think it (along with other factors) are making me extra chubby.. hahah! So I have adopted agave as my sweeter and coconut milk as my creamer. I will get back on exercising once this crazy month of traveling has slowed down.
We just got back from Los Angeles visiting some amazing friends and now we are headed to Dallas for a wedding! I’m sure I’ll blog about them both ;) Stay tuned for a ‘tourist in my hometown‘ LA edition coming soon!
