Shopping, Lunching, and Shopping Some More

My friend Joy has gone back home to Tybee Island.  Boo hiss!  Well, it's probably for the best, since we practically kill ourselves when we're together.  Shop Shop Shop.  Seriously, Miss Joy outshops moi!!!

I told Joy that she might like to go shopping with me down in Delray Beach.  I LOVE The Snappy Turtle and though Joy might like it as well.  Joy's life is full of color.  If you haven't seen the photos from my recent visit to her beach house on Tybee Island, take a peek.  Not only does she use bright colors in her home decor, she dresses in bright colors ALL THE TIME!  Snappy Turtle is just the shop for Miss Joy!  So, we headed off to Delray...Upon entering the store, I just had to get a photo next to their pink Christmas tree!

"Here's What I Wore"  White long sleeve blouse, J Crew skinny jeans, Lilly green crewneck sweater, pink 'LePlilage' Longchamp, Chanel sunglasses, Hermes cologne, Chanel 'Laser Pink' lipstick, pearls, monogrammed earrings, 'Oyster Perpetual' Rolex, Cartier wedding band, a green grosgrain ponybow, and monogrammed clogs!

The Snappy Turtle is located in Delray Beach, Florida.  I'm obsessed with everything in this store...visit their website here or like them on Facebook to see all the cute loot they have!  Joy and I left with lots of goodies and I'll be showing them in future OOTD!

Joy was dressed in lime green and hot pink...Joy is a J Crew girl and the skinny pants and ballet flats are J Crew, but I believe the top is from a Merchandise Mart in Atlanta.  Girl shops all the time.

Love Love Love these pink and green ornaments!

I think I must go back for this's so me.

And these PJ's...I kept eyeing them and didn't bring them home:(

Why isn't the cute turtle in the dressing room for sale?!  I'm just now thinking that tissue box cover is adorable too!

I finally got to meet Diane Kaufman who is a friend of Joy's back home in Tybee.  Diane owns Mermaid Cottages and was driving back home to Georgia from a recent vacation in Cuba.  We shopped at some thrift stores in West Palm and Diane found these fabulous chairs--donated from The Breakers Hotel!  She got them in her SUV with room for more cute loot!

I brought home this cutie pie for my guest room...Crazy about monkeys y'all!

Lunch at the Havana Cafe...which I learned is a must-dine establishment in West Palm.

My first time to try a Cuban Sandwich!

NOT my first taste of real flan...fabulous!!!!!

For those who have known me since my Carnival Cruise Lines days, you know I have a serious addiction to Cuban coffee.  Nothing compares.  No, not even Starbucks!!!

Thank you for stopping by today.  Hope you are having a merry merry Christmas season!

Darling. I told my girlfriends about your log today. We had our annual pre-Christmas high tea at The English Tea Room in Covington, Louisiana. Sitting in The Tudor under the portraits of Maggie Thatcher, Queen Elizabeth, and dear Diana with my mamma and 5 of my best friends all felt right in the world.
