I grew up in an ice cream-obsessed family, so people are always shocked when they learn that I really don't like ice cream. Shame on me, I know. Buuuuut here's the thing, I really do love tropical/fruity-flavored treats, so Rita's Italian Ice is one of my favorite places to stop in Gulf Shores, because they layer their ice cream with Italian ice. It's the perfect blend of creamy and icy!
I went to Rita's for the first time last summer during a family vacation to the beach. A friend of my sister's, who frequents Gulf Shores, absolutely insisted we stop by for an Italian ice. Needless to say, we didn't regret it!
You know what sucks? When you are literally obsessed with your outfit and want to share it with other people, but the pieces you're wearing are sold out *tears*. It's okay, though, because I linked some super similar pieces below that are just as cute and affordable.
