Travel Inspiration: Saint Augustine

So with this being my second post I wanted to share with you guys a pretty detailed review about one of my favorite places ever! My family & I have visited Saint Augustine, Fl. several times and most recently this past May. I made sure to take lots of pictures and have been eagerly waiting to share them with you!
Below I have posted some of my favorite spots & places that are a MUST to visit.
One of my favorite things about Saint Augustine is that there is something for everyone. Whether you are looking for great shopping, quaint places to dine and relax or are really in to history the city has something for you. My family typically stays at The World Golf Village a little ways out of town (and.. no we don't golf Lol), but there are several other beautiful places to stay that are right in town and on the water. I mean... look at that view! (insert heart eyes emoji)

{This is the view from one of the gorgeous bed and breakfasts right on main street. It is called the Bayfront Marin House and has been featured on HGTV! We are definitely planning on spending a weekend here in the future. How cute is that porch swing??} 

{One of my favorite things about Saint Augustine is that it always reminds me of a European village. I love how there is something so beautiful and picturesque around every corner. We found these adorable doors right around the block from some of the art galleries off of main street.}

Another favorite thing? Coffee shops around every corner... we stopped several times throughout the week at several different shops so I could get my iced caramel latte fix ;)

**Ps. I picked up these sunglasses while we were downtown at a local shop called Philanthropy! They are an amazing company based out of LA but have locations all over and are still growing! They are a company that is "built around charitable works and grounded in Christ." Plus their clothing is to die for! You cannot buy clothing off of their website yet (will be launching in July) but you can read all about their mission and look for a store near you HERE. For now I have linked some similar styles like these sunnies below! My sandals are Madeline Stuart from last season, but i've linked some similar styles of those too.**

| Sunglasses: similar HERE & HERE | Sandals: similar HERE (These are Jack Rodgers and they are SO cute) | Nail polish: lavender & similar HERE |

{This was one of my very favorite places that we visited. It is a monument located in the Catholic area of Saint Augustine and we are not Catholic but it was so amazing getting to see all of the beautiful structures and learn about some of the earliest settlers in America.}

One of the days we spent a little bit of time "antiquing" & finding all kinds of different treasures. This places was one of my favorites! I got the cutest little teapot!

| Dress: similar HERE | Purse: Vera Bradley (They don't sell this particular bag in this pattern anymore but a larger version in the same pattern is on sale for $35 HERE & the same style is HERE) | Sunglasses: similar HERE | Shoes: Old Navy doesn't carry these particular espadrilles any more, but their solid print ones are HERE & ON SALE! |

| Dress: similar HERE | Shoes: similar HERE | Purse: Vera Bradley (L.O.V.E this thing) |

{We spent so much time just sitting, relaxing & watching the boats. The pictures definitely don't do the view justice!}

Thank you for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my post & plan on visiting Saint Augustine in the future!! Have any of you been before? Have any favorite spots??
