TABS Bermuda is turning Five!

Happy Birthday TABS!

We all know my love for Bermuda, and also, the classic Bermuda short.

I’ve been to Bermuda three times now, and each time, my first port of call was the TABS Bermuda store. I show my husband all the colors and I pick which one I’m going to buy myself on that trip. I don’t go crazy, I use the one each trip as an excuse to go back again to get the next color!

My first trip I was headed to visit the family in Australia right after, so besides my own pair or Bermuda pink, I got my brother his favourite color of orange, with a matching pocket square, and got the niece and nephew kids ones.

My second trip I got the Sea Glass Green. They perfectly match real sea glass, as well as some of the painted walls in Bermuda.

My third trip, they had come out with the 4″ boaters, and the husband suggested they might be more petite friendly, since they show a bit more leg, so I got a Coopers Blue pair of those.

Feeling blue? I’ve never really understood why people associate blue with sadness. To me it’s a happy color. The sky, the water, people’s eyes…. I 💙 every shade of blue, and I’ll take navy over black every day of the week. I love places like Santorini where it all crisp whites and multiple shades of blue. I love living on the boat because there’s always so many blue skies and hopefully blue waters. We’re lucky here in the Palm Beaches because sometimes there’s 20 different shades of blue when looking out across the Atlantic. I love sapphires and tanzanite and topaz. I love crisp white linen with blue accents. I even love blue drinks. Make me something with blue curaçao and I’ll sip it! So what’s your happy color? . . Today’s blue’s are a vintage @eddiebauer shirt and Coopers Blue @tabsbermuda with the blue intracoastal waters of #thepalmbeaches @palmharbormarina . . . #blue #50shadesofblue #yachtlife #happycolor #boat #favoritecolor #blueonblue #coopersblue #nofilter #eddiebauer #tabsbermuda #TABSTURNSFIVE

I might be in Australia, but today’s outfit is all Bermuda. Coopers Blue boaties from @TABSbermuda A navy America’s Cup polo from @theenglishsportsshop. I even bought the kids polaroid sunnies in Bermuda. . Even though they’re so far apart, and one is so much larger than the other, I love them because they’re both so similar. Both were founded by the British. Both love rum and consider the Dark & Stormy to be the national drink. (Bundaberg vs Goslings) Rum goes so far back both nations used it as currency. Both are surrounded by water, have a multicultural mix of people, and most importantly, the people in both are warm, loving and friendly. The only real difference is I can get to one in a 3 hour flight and the other takes me at least 2 flights minimum, and about 24 hours. Australia will always be home, and I love her dearly, but it’s fun to find other places that evoke those same feelings of almost being home. 🇦🇺🇧🇲 . . . #bermuda #australia #travel #ootd #tabsbermuda #englishsportsshop #istillcallaustraliahome #traveler #outfit #travel #traveling #vacation #visiting #instatravel #instago #instagood #trip #holiday #tourism #tourist #instapassport #instatraveling #mytravelgram #travelgram #travelingram #igtravel #fashion #style #shrimpwears #petitestyle #tabsturnsfive
