Key West is well-known for its spectacular sunsets. If you only have one day in Key West, make sure to get to Mallory Square to see just how awesome it can be!

From Donna:

Alan and I returned from our Crystal Cruise a little over a week ago. So far, we finally conquered the jet lag (Yay!), caught up on bill paying and paperwork, but that pesky big piece of luggage still needs to be unpacked. Oh well, maybe this weekend?

For the My Itchy Travel Feet readers who have questions about what to wear on a luxury cruise, I’ll be helping you out with future articles on casual cruise outfits, formal night ensembles and what to wear for elegant casual evenings. Yes, I really did pose in front of the mirror on Crystal Serenity to capture every look. Taking photos of myself is really not my style but I hope it helps you out.

Speaking of casual clothing, Chico’s no-iron shirts are my favorite for daywear on the ship, in port, on road trips or at home. And, now, Chico’s is manufacturing my favorite blouses with stain shield and sun protection. How cool is that? If you click on this link, scroll down to the aqua blouse to see what I mean. 

From Nicole:
