Palm Beach Gardens Condo

We are in love with our winter rental condo. I hope you enjoy the little tour recorded here. 
Come on in and make yourself at home. 
The place is small but packs a big punch. 
The compact living room opens up to the equally compact patio. 

Moving around the space you come to the comfortable dining area. 
Beyond the dining area is the efficient little kitchen that our landlord has stocked with every imaginable amenity. 
 There are two bedrooms with their own baths and a den. 
This is bedroom # 2.
Here is the den. 
Our patio is tiny but there is a common pool area and across the street is a large downtown. 
Thanks for stopping by!

How On Earth Do I Pack For Three Months In Southern Florida?

This business of being a snow bird is new to us!  What does one take? Well, here is what I have come up with so far.
This is the first of 14 outfits. My inspiration is Miss Janice  from  This is a version of an outfit she put together. 

This second one is just a Target khaki skirt and polo shirt with some pink and pearls added to the mix. I will use the pearls often.
This is adding some minty green. 

Skinny JCrew khakis with lapis jewelry and blouse.

A Burberry look. 

Aqua and coral gingham look.


Kelly green and navy.

Pale pink and aqua.

Pink and navy gingham.

Cream, coral and navy.

Pink and gray.

Strawberry Margarita!

Casual khaki and Navy.

My chic Granddaughter looking sharp, even riding in a grocery store cart, is another one of my style inspirations.
I am feeling pretty good about having assembled 14 outfits that will mix and match to cover everyday looks. Now to work on these categories :
Swimwear and gear
Exercise gear
Golf outfits and equipment
Everything for John

Public Service Announcement:  Our house will be inhabited by house sitters and large ferocious dogs while we are gone
