Amelia Island

 There was Spanish Moss everywhere. I love the look of it hanging in the trees!

I recently visited the beach on Florida's Amelia Island, near the Florida/Georgia state line. You can drive your car right up on the sand at Fernandina beach. It was pleasantly not crowded unlike the beaches in North and South Carolina that we are used to visiting. We visited the nearby light house but it wasn't open and was hidden in a residential area. Tucked away among live oaks covered in Spanish moss, it felt so serene even just getting a peek in through the gate.

There is an old historical district that had lots of interesting houses and boutiques to visit. Since i'm studying architecture this was the coolest thing to see! There were tons of antique shops that had anything you could think of, one stores had over twenty old typewriters! This is the third oldest city in Florida and you can definitely see there is a lot of history here.

We rented bikes and rode for a few hours taking breaks to go swimming because of the heat. On our last day we visited the nearby Fort Clinch State Park right before a big storm set us running back to the car. According to the locals there is a good chance that it will rain everyday but no longer than 15 minutes before it's scorching hot again!

My pink paisley dress is a vintage Lilly Pulitzer.
Sequined sandals are from target. These are the the girls version here in gold, but are only slightly different from the women's here.
My sandals are an older pair of Chaco's , the classics with a toe strap, but they have since added hundreds of new patterns and styles. 
My blue and gray rash guard is from swim outlet.
