Just back from a wonderful trip to sunny Florida. Naples has been a regular vacation spot for our family for years. The shopping is fantastic, the restaurants are scrumptious, and the scenery? Beautiful!

The Waterside Shops are full of high-end shops including Gucci, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, and a Chanel boutique in Saks Fifth Avenue... 

Burberry, Lululemon, Anthropologie, Brooks Brothers, Calypso, Ferragamo, Kate Spade, and tons more...


 My walks are tropical and sunny and ever inspiring...






Condos aren't exactly what I would call charming, but they are certainly a nice option for being close to the beach!



My Lord, the azaleas are everywhere!











Downtown shopping is equally wonderful featuring boutique shops and restaurants with gorgeousness everywhere! Here's where we find charming...








Flew home to no less than ten inches of snow. Beautiful snow, I will admit, however I am a fan of snow for about 1- 2 days. Then I like snow to melt... or the option to plan another trip to Florida!

I have a few great shopping posts coming up featuring shops in Naples, as well as a few from the Atlanta Antique Show! Stay tuned... I must get through a few Valentine themed posts!

I am lucky enough to live just 1 1/2 hours north of Naples. I love the Waterside Shops and Downtown for shopping and dining. The downtown shop you pictured that sells beautiful Deruta pottery is one of my must sees. But, my family's favorite tradition during Christmas vacation is lunch at the Tiki bar overlooking the beach at the Ritz Carlton. Pure delight.
All the best,
Victoria

Where did you stay? Would really like to rent a condo in Naples but struggle to find one with nice interiors and close to the beach.

Hi I've just found your blog and it's absolutely fabulous! Just wondering what the apartment block is called? We loved Naples but stayed at the ritz Carlton, I would love to rent an apartment near the beach and shopping.
