Vince Camuto Wood Block Floral Print Raceback Slipdress

I love summer so much. It is great that this time of year each one of us can enjoy the sun, vacations, and time with our friends and family. This week, I had the chance to visit my family in Florida. I see some great beaches, explore Tampa and even had a chance to visit the happiest place on earth!

Needless to say, summer days in Florida can be brutal. As such, finding a great outfit for the day can be tricky. I am so grateful that my stylist Dana from Trunk Club sent me this Vince Camuto Wood Block Floral Print Raceback Slipdress (was that description long enough or what). This dress is super light which made it my dress of choice for this trip. When I use this dress for work, I like to accessorize it with a belt to make the dress a little more form fitting. Without a belt, the dress still looks great one. I am wearing this Vinco Camuto slipdress in SP. The slipdress is made of 100% polyester, so it is in fact, machine washable. This is great dress that can be used on its own or would par great with a blazer or denim jacket. This dress is also available in a blue option as well.

During my visit in Florida, I had a chance to try a central american restaurant called Pupuseria & Cafeteria Centroamericana. I am very picky with my central american food (I am biased and think my mom’s is the best lol). I was so impressed to find that the food at Pupuseria was almost identical to my mom’s cooking. Of course, I had to have a pupusa while I was there. Pupusia are thick, homemade con tortilla that is traditionally filled with cheese or beans. If you want to try authentic central american cusine, this is the place to go!

Of course, a visit to Florida would not be complete if I did not get a chance to stop by DisneyWorld. Since we only had one day to visit the parks, my cousin and I decided to get park hopper passes. We met up with my sister and I surprised them by going to the Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom. The Crystal Palace is one of my favorite restaurants. You get to enjoy great food (buffet style) and also meet the characters from Winnie the Pooh. I totally recommend going here. The photos and memories we all shared at the Crystal Palace are worth every penny (don’t worry, the prices are not too outrageous).

I am so grateful that I got a chance to go down to Florida. I got to send my entire trip with my family. My cousin and I continue to grow closer and closer every time we get a chance to see each other. It is so amazing that we did not grow up together as kids but that we are so alike in so many ways. This summer, be sure to take time to visit your family if you can. You will not regret the time you spend with them. What fun adventures have you had this summer?
