Up Your Denim Style With a Scarf & The Smuggler's Cove Adventure

Heyyyyy! It's hump day, the last week of school for my teens AND we used our four-day Visit Sarasota VIP pass for the second time!  If you missed last week's post on Selby Gardens, I explained that I received VIP passes from Visit Sarasota for two at several participating Sarasota attractions. With only 4 valid days and a full schedule, I literally squeezed in outings. Some may call me crazy but I hate to waste opportunity!

That being said, while the older boys were in school, I bribed the younger boys to get their work done quickly with mini-golf adventures! Today's pictures are from outing #2 - Smuggler's Cove Adventures!

Quick Chat On The Outfit
My outfit is a combination of GAP, Lucky and my current favorite scarf from Causebox for a little extra flair. The top and shorts are not only available, but they are also on sale so you may want to check them out. I wear these comfy shorts weekly - almost daily. Side note: I love how the right accessory can adds flair to an outfit. Perhaps that's why I love a good hat or kimono....yesterday I wore my duster kimono over these exact pair of shorts with a tank top. I walked into Francesca's boutique and those sweet ladies gushed over it. The accessory made the outfit for sure! This is where fashion is fun.

Smuggler's Cove Adventures...

After hole number 1, you travel over a shipwreck where you find more putt-putting fun. The landscaping is gorgeous with lush green vegetation engulfing each marker. Palm trees bring little to no shade, but they make you feel like you've traveled to some remote island. There's even a waterfall spraying a refreshing mist as you pass! 

Our fun began the moment we had clubs in hand! Each boy made a hole in one - not me! The boys hardly argued on this outing so I couldn't resist purchasing some gator food. 

When was the last time you played mini-golf? For our family, mini-golf was something we did while on vacation - to Florida. Well, we live here now so...

Big thank you to Visit Sarasota for adding impromptu adventures to our week. Huge thank you to bloggers, Tara and Mandy , from the Sip and Mingle events, who work hard to find stellar sponsors/brands to connect with!

Alright my friends, have a fabulous rest of the week. Listen to some fun music, add a fun accessory and get your groove on!



  1. Love the flair that scarf adds! You look great and this looks like another fun adventure.

    1. Thanks Fonda. I love when a simple accessory add-on makes me feel like I have real style game. lol!

  2. You are the cutest and most stylish mom-on-the-go! What a great outfit and the scarf used as a belt really makes the look special. I'll bet these shorts were getting attention with a kimono! That's my favorite way to wear denim shorts!
    So glad you used those passes and enjoyed Smuggler's Cove!

  3. It always amazes me how a couple accessories up the game in an outfit: that scarf and the earrings complete the outfit! Love it!

  4. So fun! I haven't played mini golf in years! I love that you wore the scarf as a belt! This is such a cute outfit!

  5. What fun! I’ll never forget the year I got a hole-in-one at minigolf, LOL! I absolutely love that you wore our scarf as a belt! You just gave me a brilliant idea sweet friend! You look so cute!

  6. You are always so darling! I'm glad you had some fun with your boys. What? School's out you say? I'll be scheduling a visit!!!

  7. Look at how much fun you have, Chrissy!! I just love the scarf as a belt. Now that's the way to add pizzazz to any outfit!

  8. I'm a huge mini golfer. I was raised playing it with my family & we took it VERY SERIOUSLY... I have to be careful playing it with Ricky because it can cause some serious fights. Anymore, I'm OK with loosing - shame i DON'T - hAHAHAH!!!

  9. Whenever you choose a skirt you will always tend to get the best looking one that suits your style but don't forget that getting one which is of good quality is also very important.

  10. Love the shorts outfit! Perfect for summer. Played a bit of miniature golf myself--not that well, however!! Haha!

    Have a great summer with your guys!
