A Weekend in Miami

2014 July 18


I am headed to Miami for the weekend for a work obligation. I haven’t been since I was a young kid and my most vivid memory of that trip is the “Miami Mice” t-shirt my parents bought me that I loved so very much and left at the pool one day…never to see it again.

I cried over that t-shirt.

Hopefully this trip will be better and I will be less forgetful.

Work trips are always a little bittersweet: bitter because you have to leave your family behind and sweet for the very same reason. A solo plane-ride cross-country, sleeping in just a little, no one to impose an 8pm curfew on your hotel room…doesn’t sound too terrible. But without fail, I am always missing them by day two and counting down the minutes on the plane ride home.

Here’s what I am packing for four days in the hot Florida sun, sans floaties:

Janessa Leone straw hat. I love the sun on both coasts but my face does not, so this straw topper will be a permanent fixture poolside. Assuming there is some time to be poolside.

essie Coral Reef. A Coral pedi is the perfect accompaniment to tanned skin and a little sand between your toes.

Madewell leopard shiftdress. This has become my go-to of the summer (and it’s on sale, go get it!). You can throw it on and run out the door looking effortless in an instant.

Splendid jumper for night. I love this light, easy one-piece because you can dress it up or down and feel super chic even when the sun is blazing hot.

Super sunglasses. My favorite sunglasses because they are heavy and secure and the gold arms add some super flash. I hear Miami appreciates that.

Have a great weekend!
