Steamy days and sultry nights means summer is finally here, and with it, our chance to enjoy all the fun fashion of the season. It’s also our opportunity to CREATE reasons to dust off our dancing shoes, pull out our fancy bags, and enjoy all the reasons we love calling the First Coast our home. The Marriott Sawgrass Resort just up the road in Ponte Vedra is the perfect place to gather with a group of friends for a quick summer getaway hanging by the pool or celebrating a special occasion.

Luckily, Summer 2018 is giving us plenty of reasons to get excited about fashion for the season. Perhaps the biggest summer statement this year is sequins and sparkles. While it’s easy to grab shine for an event, it’s super fun mixing sparkle into your day look in surprising and unexpected ways. And if sparkle isn’t your jam, have fun with bold prints and vibrant colors, because that’s what summer in Florida is all about. But if that’s STILL not your bag, flirty pastels and soft hues in flowing silhouettes make Florida summers a breeze .

Most importantly, your biggest fashion accessory is your smile, a great laugh, and a full heart. No matter what fashion statement you chose to make, you’re always winning! So grab some friends and shop local for your new favorite pieces. Hit the town and make some great memories. Grab your family and splash in the ocean. Make this summer a beautiful one to remember.

It’s only natural to be inspired by adventurous prints in vivid colors, and tropical influences in the summer.
