As soon as I hit the jetway on the plane, I was met with a huge gust of warm, humid air.
I haven't felt that kind of warmth for a loooong while.
I shed my pashmina and prepared for my hair to go from straight to wavy. That happened within about, hmm, FOUR minutes flat.
Ian had been to Palm Beach before and told me that it would be worth my while to check out Worth Avenue ... the "Rodeo Drive" on the East Coast. I saw it was just a quick drive from the airport and headed that way.
Worth Avenue has all of the best and high-end shops ... you can get your Valentino dress, your Jimmy Choo shoes, your Hermes handbag, and your Bulgari jewels all in one short strip of shops.
(It goes without saying that I kept it to an afternoon of browsing and window-shopping)
There were also great courtyards all around with lush greenery, more shops, fountains, and statues.
One of my favorites, Calypso, was down in this little courtyard. Love this fun store!
The jewels in the windows were staggeringly beautiful. Good gracious, I could hardly walk by a single window without stopping and looking at each piece.
One of my favorite stops was the J. McLaughlin store.
We have one in Charlotte, but it took a trip to Palm Beach for me to fall head over heels!
They have the cutest tunics and dresses, and the fabric they use for many designs (called Catalina cotton) is the most comfy, stretchy fabric ever. Like wearing a dress made out of soft, stretchy yoga pant fabric.
Here are some of their cute items:
Have you ever walked down Worth Avenue and perused these amazing shops?
