Disneyland

I am so excited to tell you guys all about LA, starting with… DISNEYLAND!

Although my heart belongs to Walt Disney World, getting to venture into the original Disneyland was seriously amazing! My Uncle met my mom and I for the weekend, despite having a broken foot. What a trooper! The California hills were not so magical when we had to push his wheelchair up hills, but it was totally worth it for all of the amazing rides, like Hyperspace Mountain and the Storybook Land Canal.

It was an exceptionally hot day, so I opted for this adorable t shirt dress from Nordstrom Rack. It was cool and comfy, and really allowed my ears to shine.

Speaking of ears, these ears from The Fairy God-sisters are soooooo adorable! I actually couldn’t decide which pair was my favorite, so I took both the Briar Rose and Lilly Pulitzer! Now these ears aren’t just adorable, they are super comfortable too. I didn’t have to take a single break from them all day!

I will be doing a whole post about how I style them for a day in the parks, but for now be sure to check out The Fairy God-sisters on Etsy and Instagram!

Have a magical weekend!

Wynwood Food Tour!

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in a Miami Culinary Tour of the Wynwood area! For those of you not from South Florida, (or those who like me seldom venture out of their little neighborhood) Wynwood is the hip and artsy section of town. Pretty much every wall is covered in phenomenal street art, and it boasts a young and very cool vibe. I even read an article that called Wynwood a, “Hipster’s Paradise.” Although I would not categorize myself as a hipster, I love art and new experiences, so I was very excited to explore the area! The group I was a part of was asked to meet at the iconic Wynwood Walls, where we met our fabulous tour guide. She gave us a general idea of what we would be eating, as well as a brief but interesting, history of the Wynwood area.

Our first stop was Wynwood Kitchen and Bar, where we got to try a sampling of some yummy Miami comfort food, which included an empanda, sweet plantains with queso fresco, and a tequeno, which is basically the Venezuelan version of a mozzarella stick! What’s not to love about that?!

On the way to our next stop, which was RHouse, we learned some more about the amazing art in the Wynwood area, and got to take a peak at the Wynwood Walls. Although I was sad to have to walk away from all of the beautiful walls, I was quickly soothed by the spread that RHouse had waiting for us. There was a yummy Tuna Tartar, and the most delicious slider ever!

After this, we ventured onward to Pride and Joy. Don’t come into this place expecting anything fancy! This was a very relaxed environment, and on top of some amazing pulled pork, they had some of my favorite oldies playing, which was a nice bonus!

After this, we ventured to the opposite end of the food spectrum: Ceviche, which is one of my all time favorite foods, and SuViche did not disappoint! It was an adorable little spot, and their classic ceviche lived up to my very picky pallet! From the moment we left this spot, I’ve been dreaming about returning to try some different varieties!

Although it was difficult to pull myself away from ceviche paradise, our next stop was by far the most adorable stop on this tour! Made in Italy is such an adorable place to sit down for a snack. Although my palate wasn’t quite sophisticated enough for truffle cheese, the presentation was adorable, and the overall atmosphere was absolutely charming!

After this darling stop, we headed out to Fireman Derek’s Key Lime Pies, which was sadly our last stop. The tour ended on a sweet note with none other than Derek’s famous Key Lime pie! It was such a yummy treat, and the perfect desert for a sweltering Miami afternoon.

Overall, this was an excellent tour! Whether you are local, or visiting Miami, this is a fabulous way to see the city in a new way, try a variety of local foods, and meet interesting new people!

Lilly Pulitzer All Nighter Shorts!

Even though I’ve been sick for a couple of days, I’ve been soaking up every last bit of summer, and one of my favorite ways to do that is by wearing some fab Lilly shorts! Some of you might remember these fun shorts from my Instagram post (@MsVictoriaAR) celebrating my last day of being a teenager. These shorts were just crying out to be paired with confetti!

All Nighter5

I had been nervous to buy a pair of Lilly shorts because I wasn’t sure how they would fit, or which model I would like. During the After Party Sale however, I finally took a leap of faith and got two pairs of buttercup shorts!

All Nighter1

The first ones I got were in Pink Colony (be on the lookout for a post about those very soon!) and I actually hadn’t seen this pair my first time around. My mom and I had decided to divide and conquer, and she asked me if I had seen, “the flamingo shorts.” I was confused, since she knew that I had bought another pair, but when she sent me a screenshot, I was ecstatic! I love the print, “All Nighter,” and actually preferred it in a pair of shorts rather than the shift since it is a larger pattern.

I paired these happy little shorts with my breezy and comfy yellow H&M tank, Jacks, and this absolutely adorable Kendra Scott necklace!!
