Miami Swim Week Diary

Here's my swim week recap! :) I just wanted to get it all in one post with a mix of photos & instagrams, so this is going to be a long one!

Day 1

I stayed at the Loews hotel on Collins Ave.  This was my second time there and it's definitely one of my favorite hotels in South Beach.  I was only a couple of blocks away from everything, which was perfect. The first day after checking in I grabbed some lunch, stopped by the Escape Miami party for a few and went to the Convention Center to check out some of WET Swimwear's new collection.

Airport selfie, of course. 

I wore this cute two piece set from H&M and these chunky heeled sandals from Apt 9. 

WET's new collection consisted of some faux leather/denim pieces.  Sexay!

After that I went back to the hotel for a quick change and headed to the LSpace & Mara Hoffman shows.  I wasn't able to get any good images myself at LSpace so below are a few from getty images.  

I loved the sleek & sexy wet hairstyle that all of the models had.  LSpace teamed up with Jonathan Product Hydracurls to achieve this look.  

I scored this matching set at the Zara sale!  It was the last pair of shorts too.  This jacket was one size up but I had to have it.  - Shot by Ryan Chua 

I'm proud of myself because I actually took these shots myself at Mara Hoffman.  I have no idea how I did it because I got the lighting to be perfect.  This will probably never happen again lol

Such a great show!

Day 2

Sunday started off with a fun brunch at the SLS Hotel with TRESemme.   They did a braid in my hair that lasted all day and saved me from the humidity.  I need to learn how to do this on myself. 

I wore a dress from Forever21 & Sandals from Apt 9. - Shot by Ryan Chua 

After the brunch it was time for WET's pool party at The Delano!  I had a blast with all the girls. 

With my babe Daniela 

Changed into this printed romper from Forever21 and Zara shoes that I scored on Poshmark for dinner & the 6 Shore Road show. 

Loved all the cutouts & fun prints!

Day 3

I had breakfast on the balcony, then laid out by the pool and went to the beach.  A fun day in the sun.  If only I was able to do this here in Jersey. 

My Monica Gellar hair lol

I changed into this black romper from Forever21 and these fab Prima Donna heels for my last night.  

Day 4

My last day :( After check out, I went to Lincoln Road for lunch and then straight to the airport.  Boo! 

& that's a wrap on my Miami trip!  Sorry for the photo overload.  Hope you enjoyed the post!
Happy Weekend. <3

To Thine Own Self Be True

Outfit Details 

Top: Forever21 (here) / Jeans: Dynamite (similar style) / Sandals: Lauren Conrad (here
Hat: H&M (similar) / Bag: MCM (borrowed from friend) / Sunglasses: Charlotte Russe (similar

I'm doing things sort of backwards as this was my last outfit in Miami.  I just wanted something very casual and comfy to wear for a few hours of walking around and then heading to the airport.  To Thine Own Self Be True is one of my favorite quotes, so I was happy when I found it on a shirt right before my trip.  I paired it with boyfriend jeans and flat sandals for a super relaxed outfit.  I'm so happy I brought this hat with me because it really helped to hide my Monica Gellar hair.  Ever watch Friends?  Do you remember the episode when they all go to Barbados and Monica's hair gets huge from the humidity?  That totally happened to me out there. lol

I borrowed another bag from my friend again.  I didn't bring that many with me, so I am happy that she did since I got to use some of them. :) I didn't want to do too many individual outfit posts from Miami, so I'll be doing a big recap post tomorrow and can't wait to share!  

Enjoy your day <3

Hey guys!  
I'm back from Miami and can't wait to share a recap with you all.  I wanted to do an outfit post first though since I haven't posted in a couple of days.  I had such a great time over there and forgot how much I love Miami.  But boy was it hot and humid!  I definitely overpacked, as per usual, so I didn't get to wear everything that I brought with me.  I did get to wear this outfit for a few hours though so I wanted to share.  I went shopping before the trip and picked up these paisley print high-waist shorts.  I decided to just play off the black belt and pair it with this crop top.  My friend had this bag with her so I borrowed it since it went perfectly with the look. :) The pop of pink really helped to brighten up the outfit.  Keeping my hair down the whole time was a little unbearable, so braids and up-dos were the best option during my stay.  I have to admit that this trip really makes me want to chop my hair!

I already emailed the winner of the Kohls giveaway, but CONGRATS TO ASHLEY C! Thank you all so much for your comments and entering the giveaway!

Happy Wednesday <3
