To Florida or not to Florida

There has been some talk around here lately about a spring fling to Florida.  I'm having second thoughts (actually thoughts of  pure terror).
Don't get me wrong I love to travel and have been fortunate to be able to do a bit these last couple of years.
I just can't come to grips about shedding all of these layers of clothes I've been wearing for months in basically 24 hours.
Oh to be young again, when the whole solution would be to go tanning for a week or so........throw a bikini and some shorts in a bag and away you go.
It's a lot more complicated when you get to "silver style" age.
These last few years I have noticed my aversion to shorts (unless working in the garden).
Skirts are a lot more comfortable, cooler and basically more flattering.
So here I go looking for some  looks to "style" in the sunshine state.
Please take a minute, and go on this adventure that we will all be facing in a month or two.  There just might be a surprise or two on how we can look great in our "silver style" years.

  1. I just got back from Fl and GO! At our condo, I watched older women of all shapes and sizes sport their little tennis skirts day in and day out with great confidence. It was surprising at first ( I am a prude from Boston) but found it so liberating! And then, in Miami--evreyone will wear a bikini! So shed the layers, and enjoy the weather~Paula

  2. Paula,
    Thanks for the comment. I'm having some technical issues at home--space bar on lap top had a run in with a glass of white wine and my digital camera broke. So until i get those issues resolved i have to post when i can from work.
    I'm pretty sure we're going, I've been stocking up on some new thrifted skirts and will pull out the ben's of summer storage soon.
    Some times I envy the people that just wear what they want no matter......I just can't do that. One piece with a wrap or long skirt will do me just fine.
    Hope you had a great time on your trip!

  3. Have a wonderful trip! I could be jealous! My husband and I took an overnight trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee this past weekend for our 23rd anniversary. Getting to travel together is a lot of fun so enjoy!
