A Day at the Don

August 4, 2018

It's no secret that my favorite destination vacation is Florida - it's basically my second home and I consider myself a bit of an honorary Floridian (is that a thing?). I have a lot of family that lives there, so I grew up spending spring breaks and summers in various Florida cities (namely Miami & Delray Beach), and for the most part, I've pretty much been allllllll over that state. One place I hadn't been was the St. Petersburg area, so we decided to take a mini-vacay and post up in St. Pete Beach for a long weekend.

I was looking forward to relaxing on the beach (well, as much relaxing as one can do with a 7 month old!), but I was also incredibly excited to check out the Don CeSar and knew it would be a stop on our list. How could I possibly resist a pink hotel?

Take Me To: The Grand Floridian

August 2, 2018

If there's one thing Disney knows how to do, it's a theme. From the south pacific vibes of the Polynesian to capturing the essence of an African wildlife reserve at Animal Kingdom Lodge, each of the resorts are themed so immersively that they transport you to another time & place. One of my favorite things to do (when I'm not going ropedrop-to-fireworks kind of hard at the parks) is explore the resorts and take in all they have to offer. For this series, I'll be collaborating with several different bloggers and Instagrammers & talking all about several of the different Disney properties. Each one offers so much to do throughout the day & into the night, and naturally, we'll be highlighting various looks for each, inspired by the resorts (because I also love a good theme)!

Our first stop in the resort hop is the Grand Floridian, covered by Lexie Brohl. Lexie runs both a YouTube channel and a blog (Breakfast at Disney! My Audrey-lovin' heart is obsessed with that!), and her look is all about melding whimsical style with soft femininity (think Cinderella meets Elle Woods). Pink is definitely the color of her soul - and for that, we're kindred spirits. She's put together a video highlighting her favorite parts of the Grand Floridian, as well as a look perfect for wandering the hotel.
