On Thursday night, we booked a last minute trip to Palm Beach and left for it on Friday. Brandon and I will travel without the kids here and there, but the last time we were alone in a tropical place without Watson and Rosie was over three years ago! We’ve had a lot going on personally, so a little R&R felt much needed… and Palm Beach was the place.


We did a lot of shopping on Worth Avenue. Such a beautiful spot. We didn’t buy much of anything, other than a few Easter surprises for the kids at Leta Austin Foster, but I sure enjoyed looking around and gaining inspiration. I’m wearing this romper above.


We stayed at Eau Palm Beach. It was a lovely spot. A little further down from all the shopping and restaurants we frequented, but that was okay because we had our car with us and we really enjoyed the beautiful ocean-front drive to get there. Honestly, seeing all of the incredible mansions and the entrances to such grand landscapes was one of the highlights of the trip! Had we stayed closer to the restaurants and shopping, we wouldn’t have been able to soak that in quite as much.



I’m in love with Palm Beach architecture and landscapes.


One night for dinner, we went to Renato’s and it was excellent! We sat outside in their courtyard underneath twinkling lights. It was very romantic. I kept telling Brandon, “This place is a vibe!” Everyone was so well dressed, kind, and enjoying one another’s company. Somehow, Renato’s felt like the happening spot, yet calm and romantic at the same time.


The dress I wore is by LoveShackFancy. It’s not available anymore, but it’s called the Danbury dress and you can often find it in other colorways. My earrings are by Nicola Bathie Jewelry.


Lots of shopping! We went to Worth Avenue a couple times to walk the beautiful palm-lined streets and we also went to the Royal Poinciana Plaza, which was another great spot with both luxury stores and little boutiques.


Spotted this wallpaper at Casa Branca and immediately texted Betsey and said, “I have to have this!”


One day we had lunch at RH Palm Beach. It was beautiful and delicious. I wouldn’t put it on my “musts” list because it didn’t feel as Palm Beach as the other places and was a little out of the way, but if you haven’t ever been to a RH restaurant, then it’s for sure worth a go!


Lots of pool/beach time right spent right here.


Another great lunch spot—our favorite, at that—was Le Bilboquet. It felt so Palm Beach and the food was to die for. Another place that was definitely a scene! I spotted Brendan Fitzpatrick there… random, I know.


Another excellent meal was Imoto, where we went to grab sushi one night. Brandon and I are big on sitting at a bar, so when we arrived for our dinner reservation and saw there were two seats open at the bar, we asked to sit there instead. We happened to sit next to two South Carolina gentlemen and talked to them for hours! So fun. Imoto, by the way, was absolutely delicious. The sushi was great but to me, the starters were the stand outs. My dress below is older Hunter Bell.


Below, I’m wearing this suit by my friend Marysia. On Monday, she donated all profits from the day to help displaced Ukrainians. She was able to donate $20K! How amazing is that?


The pool food at Eau Palm Beach was delicious. And lots of rummy was played. We sat there for hours just playing cards and soaking in the sun with margaritas. Just what the doctor ordered.

It was a wonderful time and I can’t recommend it enough.

The town was so clean and luxe… every turn was somehow more beautiful than the last.

Palm Beach, we love you!
