Packing For Miami

I’m heading to Miami on Valentine’s Day for a couple of days and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I’ve been to Miami several times before but never in the winter time. I’ve actually never gone to the beach when it’s cold where I live. I can’t wait to experience the drastic weather change and bask in the sunshine. While I’ll mostly be on my own – I’m tagging along Greg’s business trip – I’m still going to live it up with cute beach wear while he’s working. My introverted self loves hanging out alone and I’ve been thinking of what to pack for Miami for weeks!

This will be my third time going and I have yet to explore the arts district! I’ve also never been to downtown Miami and I may go to a restaurant down there. Table for one, please! The last two times I stayed in South Beach while this time I’m staying more up north. But talking about what to pack for Miami, I treated myself to this striped one-piece (less expensive here and here). I love that one pieces are more “on trend” again because I personally love wearing them. I’m also bringing a pair of linen pants as they can act both as coverup and casual dinner wear.

You can’t go to the pool without a cute coverup and this one is right up my street. I’m also packing these affordable sunglasses, these black and cream colored espadrilles and denim shorts. Dress wise I love this off the shoulder number (detecting a theme here with this last post?) but also like to switch it up with this floral maxi dress. I’ve gotten several compliments on these flip flops as they’re not your average shape and they hold up really nicely at the pool.

I’m also planning to bring this book, a cute beach bag, this coconut scented balm and most important of all, SPF! What key pieces do you take with on a beach vacation?
