Sunny FL

Still in Florida as you may have guessed from the lack of posts! Thought I'd give you a quick update on what I've been wearing in the heat/pouring rain... Sadly, it only ranges from shorts and vests to shorts and t-shirts but I've been doing my best to look fab with what I can manage without dying of heat stroke.

Second day in Orlando we headed to Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios- who knows what that means..? The Wizarding World of Harry Potter ooooooooo. It wasn't even my first visit there (we went the year it opened haha!) but I was so excited that I had to wear my customised Levi's, now known as the Slytherin shorts. As expected, I got a tonne of funny looks from other visitors, but I did not care one bit. I was definitely feeling smug due to the fact that I had created such awesome shorts... If anyone is interested, you can check out my tutorial on how to make shorts like mine in my post last month. With my Levi's, I wore my vintage Tom & Jerry Tank- my outfit didn't need any more bright colours!

One of the best moments of my life; being chosen from a crowd in Olivander's to have  my wand chosen for me.
That's right, all you lovely people...
 Busch Gardens was day 4- seeing as we'd spend the previous day at Aquatica, Sea World's water park, I was horrifically sun burnt. This lead me to staying pretty covered up on my shoulders that day- I was hurting. On the up side, I got to stroke some kangaroos! As you can see, I wore a oversize tee with a repeat leopard pattern with my indigo denim Levi's. Just to let you know, I averted any further sun burn that day.

Sadly, the sun was short lived- this is us doing our family signal whilst waiting in a gift shop packed with people trying to escape the rain. Everything was shut down and after 90 minutes queuing for Sheikra, we were not pleased. 
Chillin' at The Mall at Millenia- jeans were needed due to the extensive air conditioning here... 
Hi, I'm Hulk Hogan
I couldn't help myself....

As you may have guessed, day 5 was spent shopping- a much needed rest after the heat and walking experienced in the first couple of days. Along with my new Vans (authentic, acid washed red) I picked up a cute tie dye tank (guys, $15) and a tribal patterned crop top ($20) from Urban Outfitters, both of which were on sale! I have to admit, I didn't find that much that I was overly impressed with in there... Though I have a feeling that this was because I've been saving up for so long that I've become reluctant to spend my money. It's a sad feeling... 

On a happier note, here's my beautiful new crop top. I wore it to Sea World expecting to get completely soaked on Journey to Atlantis- it was broken down, sod's law. By the time they had it up and running neither me, mother or father could be bothered to wait in the 70 minute queue and went home. I loved my outfit that day though! Keeping my fingers crossed for some good weather back in England so I can wear it at least once... pleaaaase?!

I hope you enjoyed my mess of holiday snaps because there's a lot more to come. Keep checking back because I'm pretty sure that in the next few weeks my spending head is going to go into overdrive and I will no longer be able to refrain from purchasing everything in sight.... 

All my love, Timone. x
