Howdy friends! This weekend I had the absolute pleasure of heading down to Boca Grande with one of my absolute favorite brands, Sailor-Sailor, to help them launch their Resort collection- which dropped today! I’ve worked with Sailor-Sailor several times over the past few years, so when they asked if I wanted to head down to one of the cutest cities in Florida for a girls weekend to learn more about the brand and photograph resort, I couldn’t say yes fast enough! It’s such a joy to connect with brands and after spending the weekend with Kim and Kimberly (co-founders of Sailor-Sailor) I am even more of a fan of this colorful, preppy, and fun brand!
Since today is the launch of the Resort Collection, I thought it would be fun to share some “behind the scenes” photos of our weekend so you can get a look at what fun ensues when 5 bloggers get together with a brand rooted in sharing color & a zest for life! I hope you enjoy!
We arrive early a Friday afternoon to Boca Grande and after grabbing a yummy lunch we checked into our villa at the Gasparilla Inn. Y’all I cannot say enough good things about this adorable hotel/inn! They were so accommodating to us, and we loved our villa! It was 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms which was perfect for 5 girls who all took some time to get ready! We had a full kitchen, living room and adorable sunroom that I took full advantage of enjoying!
When we checked in, Kim and Kimberly had the sweetest bags waiting for us full of amazing brands which complimented our looks throughout the weekend and just helped to make the whole weekend extra special!
Thanks to Crab and Cleek for the darling tote bag! It was perfect for toting things around all weekend!
When it was time for the fun to begin, I became the golf cart driver (it’s the easiest way to get around the island!) and it was fun learning how to drive one!
Night one kicked off with froze at the Beach Club! The sunset was gorgeous and we all had fun getting to know each other better!
From L to R: Nikki, Jayme, Jill, Me, & Sasha (These ladies are 100% the real deal- fun, supportive, real, and girl bosses!)
Then we headed back to the villa for a cozy dinner, get to know you, and pajama party!
(When you realize you’re definitely not a food blogger 😬)
Of course we ended the night with a pillow fight! Ha. Thank you to Ella Denise McLaughlin for the darling pajamas! They are so soft and cozy- definitely won’t be my last pair!
We were up bright and early Saturday for a full day of shooting with Amy Weiler Photography! I cannot wait to start sharing the photos she took with y’all! She’s incredibly talented and captured the vibrant spirit of the brand, and our personalities, so perfectly!
The cutest photo crashed ever- Higgins!
After shooting some personal content in the morning, we had one last hurrah before saying our goodbyes. So sad so leave this magical place and this special weekend!
I am so thankful for this special weekend, and the wonderful new friends I made! It truly was such a gift and I can’t thank y’all enough for supporting the blog and the brands I love, as it allows opportunities like this!
Thank you to the Sailor-Sailor team for an incredible and fun weekend! Cheers to resort!
