Sharing my preppy casual outfit when we went to Key West, Florida a couple of weeks ago. After the hectic and stressful weeks of capstone and the delightful graduation ceremony, my hubby and I flew to the sunny Key West to enjoy the lovely early summer weather in Florida while it’s still cold in Boston.
The Florida Keys consists of numerous small islands, ranging from Miami to Key West. Being the southernmost point, Key West is the end of the highway road. As the overseas US-1 highway separates the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean and connects the mainland Miami to the Florida Keys, driving US-1 is an unique and one-of-a-kind road trip experience.
Since Key West is sunny and warm and the average temperature is 80 F°all year, the first thing that I packed for this vacation is sunglasses. I like this Cole Hann sunglasses because the shape fits the root of my nose very well. Besides the must-pack beach items like flip flops in terms of footwear, I also wore this pair of Converse 1970 Chuck Taylor sneakers for this vacation. They have better shock absorption than the classic Chuck Taylor All Star collections, which is comfortable to travel.
So much to talk about Key West! One of the attractions is Ernest Hemingway’s home. The Hemingway home was built in Spanish Colonial style and surrounded with a great amount of tropical plants. Even though Hemingway only lived here for 9 years, he wrote 70% of his works in his Key West studio. He is also a renowned cat lover and had a six-toed cat during his lifetime. Now, there are approximately 40 six-toed descendants of Hemingway’s original cat, and you can see there are numerous little cat paw prints on the cement ground!
