Palm Beach

I covered the polo match... now for the rest of our Palm Beach vacation back in April. 

We stayed for a total of five nights - the first few days were spent at Kimpton's Tideline Ocean Resort & Spa on the beach and the last two at The Chesterfield Palm Beach. The best part of The Tideline was that it was next door to The Four Seasons, where we spent the majority of our time! The Chesterfield was really cute and I am happy that we switched it up the last couple of nights.

Overall it was a very relaxing trip. The Tideline offered free yoga classes on Saturday and Sunday morning and I hung out at the beach while Ted golfed. He left really early so he would be back around lunchtime. I can only be in the sun for an hour or two before I get bored, so when he returned we would head over to The Four Seasons pool and bar. We spent an afternoon at the spa, window shopped along Worth Avenue, went to the polo match, drove around to check out all the amazing homes and ate at some great restaurants. Vacation done right!

This maxi dress from Victoria's Secret is one of my favorite pieces to pack for warm weather. I originally bought it for my honeymoon. In Florida I wore it out to dinner...

and the next day threw it on over my swimsuit at the beach. I need it in another color.

What's a trip to Palm Beach without stopping by The Breakers?! How do I even begin to describe it... breathtaking! Everything is over the top in the best way. Those flowers!

Flagler Steakhouse lived up to the rave reviews.

I broke out my "vintage" Lilly for our afternoon at The Seafood Bar.

Monday's off are THE BEST. I had the pool to myself at The Chesterfield.

Enjoying my wine at Būccan.
(This Nanette Lepore dress is on Rue La La today for a steal and available here, here and here).

I got some excellent tips from readers and friends! Thanks to their recommendations I made key reservations in advance. Since we didn't get around to everything we will just have to go back.

Some of the highlights...

Jove Kitchen & Bar: This Italian restaurant is located within The Four Seasons. Their main restaurant, Graze, was completely booked so we gave this a try and were pleasantly surprised. We had octopus to start and split the mushroom ravioli and branzino.
Flagler Steakhouse: Located at The Breakers golf course. Ted went for steak, big surprise, and I had the shrimp scampi appetizer as my main dish.
The Seafood Bar: Another spot at The Breakers. The bar is a fish tank! Fantastic cocktails. The bartender told us they would be renovating later this year... I can't wait to see what they do.
Leopard Lounge: Located at The Chesterfield. I was looking around for Don Draper.... I really felt like I was in another era. I had the lobster risotto and it did not disappoint.
Būccan: This was the hot spot in town and reservations are key. 1/2 off bottles of wine on Monday... by chance I picked the right night!

Until next time, Palm Beach. xoxo
