These essentials are all you need for a Keys Vacation. It is casual everywhere you go and no one here judges. If you dress up in the Keys, expect stares and questions simply because it is so unexpected, not because any one really cares.

But if you want to wait to do a bit of shopping for the local beach style, we have terrific local options that are fun and packed with current beach fashion. But truly, what to wear in the Florida Keys is nothing to sweat about – we are on casual here on this island!! So casual and laid back in fact that wherever you might be during your vacation in the Florida Keys, you could be sitting next to a local fishing guide or a billionaire without ever having a clue. They will be dressed the same with the same friendly smile and island twinkle.

Don’t you just love that? We do!

Peace, love, and vacations,

Kim, Martie and Layla
