A few months ago, I wrote about my newfound love for denim skirts and shared this denim mini for the first time in this outfit post. My love for denim skirts has continued to grow throughout the spring/ summer season, and this denim skirt (under $100) has become a summer staple in my wardrobe. I love that this skirt feels as casual as a pair of denim shorts but just a little more put together!

On our first full day in Seaside, FL last week, we spent the morning on the beach then drove down to Inlet Beach, Rosemary Beach, and Alys Beach to do a little shopping in the afternoon. There are so many amazing shops on 30a and the last time we were in town we didn't make it to too many of them because we spent just about every minute on the beach (no complaints!). With it being late summer, many stores were having summer sales and we knew we needed to make shopping a bigger priority this time around :).

We started at Willow + Mercer in Inlet Beach, then headed over to Willow in Rosemary Beach, then stopped by Alys Shoppe in Alys Beach (and snapped these outfit pics), before heading back to Seaside and visiting Cabana (formerly Perspicasity). There are definitely tons and tons more amazing stores in the area, but these are just a few we love coming back to year after year! What are some of your must stop shops on 30a?
