It’s been a while since I posted non-sponsored content and I apologize. It has been mostly due to not being inspired to blog. Well, I got my mojo back, and starting today I will begin a weekly blog post from fashion, travel, and more so if you don’t already subscribe, now is a great time!
I am kicking things off with a roundup of everything I wore and things to do while in Miami. I shared his and hers fashion look last summer when I last visited. I was in Miami for less than 48 hours about a week ago with a few friends. My pink dress is by Amu paired with sandals by Brothervellies and Mini Jodi bag by Bottega.
5 things to do in Miami Beach
Stay at Grand Beach Hotel Surfside
Located on the quieter part of Collins Avenue (North Miami Beach) Grand Beach Hotel Surfside is a beachfront family-friendly luxury hotel. The last time I stayed at The Confidante Hotel a 4-star more pocket-friendly beachfront property. I experienced the fastest check-in process of any hotel at this Hyatt property. Also located on Collins Avenue, a great location when on vacation in Miami. Another hotel I loved was 1 Hotel South Beach. Another amazing 5-star beachfront hotel.
The service at Grand Beach was exceptional. The food was delicious and the corner suite we stayed in, a 2 bedroom 4 bath (yes you read that right) was perfect for 4 creatives and will be for your next group getaway. I am wearing a dress by Norma Kamali (she makes the best vacay looks) paired with a white blazer by Zara, Stretch sandals in Moon Drop by Bottega Venetta. (They’re comfortable 3.5 heels) and my sequins bag is by Dsquared2. It also comes in black.
Brunch at Little Hen
Good food and beautiful floral decor both inside and out. Little Hen is a must-visit while in Miami. This was my second time and won’t be my last. Make reservations at least a week in advance cos they usually are busy even at 8:45 am on a Sunday. The rose pancakes, French toast are a must.
Dinner and dancing at Swan, Miami Beach
Just like Little Hen, you will need to make reservations at least a week out. Swam is the spot to hit on a weekend for great food, people watching, good music, and dancing. It can be the stop before a night out dancing or where you enjoy both. They have a great lounge located upstairs in the restaurant.
Shopping at Bal Harbour Shops and Miami Design District
If you love shopping (doesn’t matter if you are window shopping or buying) spent a few hours at Bal Habour Shops and Miami Design District. Both are equally great for luxury shopping but I love the Miami Design District for Art (It is located in the Art Decor area.) They have different vibes so visit both places.
Bal Habour is fantastic for luxury shopping, people watching and grabbing a bite too. The Dior Cafe is located in the Design District and is worth visiting for coffee and a dessert (don’t bother ordering an actual meal.) It is best to arrive early if you don’t want to deal with long lines and no you don’t have to shop to visit the cafe.
Rooftop to visit, Watr for 1 Beach lunch
A visit to Miami isn’t complete without a rooftop moment and Watr is a vibe! Located at 1 Beach Hotel, a luxury hotel on Collins Avenue. The food was delicious and the views were everything. On the menu is Japanese food and something for even the pickiest of eaters. You do not have to stay at the hotel and like most hot spots in Miami, make reservations in advance.
Stay tuned for my Seychelles travel post coming up later this week. See more travel content HERE.
