Packing Guide for a Miami Beach Girl's Trip
Ok, maybe I shouldn't have called it a "girl's trip" I mean I am a 34 year old woman with three children, but hey, momma's gotta liiiive a little!! So how, you ask, did I pull off a trip with one of my bestie's sans kiddos? It's called having the best husband in the world. Not even kidding. My husband knows and understands what it is like to stay home everyday with three children, ages three and under. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't change my life for anything, but it can be stressful, tiring, and after a long winter, I needed a little escape.
Part of the fun of going away was figuring out what I wanted to wear. I have been to Miami before and already had in mind the vibe I wanted to go with...bright vibrant colors, poms, tassels, and BUDGET friendly. If you have been here before you know I love to get my shop on but I am not willing to overpay when I don't have to.
Day 1 Sunday (Airport attire)
I live in Connecticut so it was chilly and wanted to wear layers so that I would be comfortable.
Upon our arrival, there was a gay pride parade going on right in front of our hotel on Ocean Drive. We ran upstairs and I threw on my most "festive" looking bathing suit and cover up combo. The cover up, I found recently at Marshall's and it has adorable pom pom accents.
- Cover Up, Marshalls
- Black Bikini, a couple years ago from Target)
- Lace Up Sandal, last year from Target)
- Tassel Earrings, Burlington Coat Factory
- Hat, older from Nordstrom
Monday: Beach Day
I looked everywhere for a two piece suit that fit me comfortably. Found this one at Target (surprise, surprise). I also really love and wanted one of those big sun hats with the cute saying on them. For the past year I have been eyeing them, but truth be told the ones I have seen have cost more than I was willing to spend. I was psyched when I found THIS one at Francesca's for 30 bucks! I gotta tell you gold metallic flip flops are seriously a must have for me. I couldn't find my pair and literally stopped mid packing to run to Kohl's to buy another pair. They are the same pair I couldn't find and I LOVE them. My sunglasses were 12 bucks from Nordstrom.
That sums up what I packed and wore on my little Miami girl's getaway! Until next year Miami!
