If you follow me on instagram (or Bobby or Miku, for that matter), you already know that we headed down to Key West for a mini vacation, where we were guests of The Gates Hotel Key West. In fact, a few of you thought I was there the whole time I was in Florida, but we only spent four days in The Keys! The rest was spent in Southeast Florida, where my family lives, with some stops in Sebastian and Fellsmere. We made the most of our trip to Key West, packing it full of activities (can you count lounging in the pool as an activity?) and exploration. Bobby and I brought along Tessa (my little sister) and Diego (her boyfriend), as well as our little Miku. If I have the choice, I always bring Miku along – so when planning vacations, I make sure they’re as pet friendly as possible.

Luckily, Key West is very pet friendly. When we checked in at The Gates Hotel Key West, they had a bed set up for Miku, along with toys and treats from Barkbox. It was such a nice welcome! We had such a great time in Key West, but I can honestly say that I think Miku might have had the best time of all. She relaxed with me at Rum Row while we sipped Shirley Temples and virgin Piña Coladas (party animals, I know), went kayaking and paddle boarding at Lazy Dog, swam like the mermaid that she is, feasted at restaurants amongst the local roosters and chickens, and even got to see a Tarpon try to eat my hand off (I should post the video…it’s pretty funny). I have a couple more posts from our trip, coming up, including a roundup of all the places we went to. If you’re planning a trip to Key West, keep an eye out for that post, this week!

    Your outfit looks wonderful as well, white lace is such a Summer staple!

      I have to keep myself from checking ModCloth, because I always end up buying something! I try to only look when I’m actually wanting to buy:)
