SUNKEN GARDENS – Top Places to Visit in Florida

Hello Blonde Lovers!

We, as Floridians, take for granted all the beautiful places we have accessible to us all year long.  Therefore, last weekend we set off on a hunt to find all the hidden (and not so hidden) gems in our city.  We put on our little white dresses from The Mint Julep Boutique and off we went!

If you are like us, surrounded by technology and urbanism on a daily basis, you are in need of an escape.  And we have just the right place for that!  We strongly recommend you to visit Sunken Gardens if you love nature, greenery, and flamingos.  Oh, did we mention the flamingos!


  This botanical paradise is the home of some of the oldest tropical plants in the area.  Sunken Gardens is the closest thing to your own personal Secret Garden.  The only con to being around flowers are all the little bugs flying around.  Be sure to pack insect repellent!

I really love my “Not A Day Goes By”  dress from The Mint Julep Boutique. It is very comfortable and the lace detailing is really pretty! I’ve been able to wear this dress to parties and my everyday job, so I love the fact that it has versatility.  I paired this with a Forever 21 floppy hat  and my new Rocksbox earrings and wrap around cuff.  You can use our promo code THEBLONDEDIARYXOXO to sign up for Rockbox and get a free month of jewelry!  Keeping my accessories light with a simple heel kept the outfit classy.




My “Sweet in The South” dress is very casual, and yet so fun and playful. I love how flare the skirt part of the dress is. It will look great on all body types.  The seersucker fabric is a great choice for the summer. It is a nice touch and adds texture which makes the dress very unique.You can wear this dress with sandals, flats, heels, platforms, sneakers… You name it! And look at that bow at the back – so cute and girly!

This lovely “Vexing Love Dress” completely complemented my mood and the place. The fit and flare silhouette of it offers a feminine charm.  The dress has a  flattering fit that can be dressed up or down.  I completed my look with a blue bow slender faux-leather belt by Another Line to accentuate the waist and my Steve Madden Dynamite Sandals.  The textured floral fabric matched the botanical environment that surrounded us perfectly.
