THE LOCATION: During a weekend visit to Clearwater, Florida I was looking for a fun, spontaneous day trip. That is when I came across Caladesi Island State Park. This gem is one of the few completely natural islands along Florida’s Gulf Coast. When you arrive, you’ll find complete solitude, white sands, and water good enough for fishing. The pristine beaches are overrun with adorable shells and are inhabited by lovely creatures like tortoises and many different birds. Voted America’s Best Beach in 2008, I was surprised I only just learned of Caladesi Island, but was glad to be in on the secret at last!
THE LOOK: For a weekend getaway, I prefer to spend more time day dreaming about the adventures to be had and less time packing for them. In the past, I’ve blogged about how packing with a theme can make the task much easier. So without further ado, come on my day around Caladesi Island State Park as I wear my polka-dot theme beach wardrobe!
