If there's one thing most of Southwest Floridians have in common, it's a love of sun, sand and all things aquatic. So it's no surprise that many of us like to bring a bit of the beach to our homes, closets and jewelry boxes. Whether casually subtle or chi and cheeky, these pieces will keep you in a coastal state of mind on those rare occasions when you don't have your toes in the sand.
