A Romantic Miami Getaway!!

Hello Lovelies!

Today is an extra special post!!  I was contacted by the gorgeous travel guru, Kendra Thornton last week about creating her an outfit for a romantic trip to Miami with her hubby. Instead of creating one outfit, I created two outfits for one day!

The Gorgeous, Miami-Bound Kendra Thornton !!

I planned her day to begin poolside at their stunning hotel, the Delano. I chose the most gorgeous cut-away, structured swimsuit to highlight her petite figure and paired it with a flowing cover-up that’ll be a standout piece on the pool deck.

I wanted to create an outfit that would make her standout, but also not look overdone. Subtly sexy and alluring, but also classy and put-together.  I want her to turn heads for all the right reasons!

A Lovely Afternoon

After the day in the sun, Kendra will enjoy an afternoon in the spa, courtesy of her wonderful husband… a girl has to be pampered after a long morning of sipping cocktails in a lounge chair by the pool!

After a day in the sun with her man, I planned an outfit for dinner and drinks at the restaurant in the hotel. No colour looks better paired with tanned skin than coral pinks, so I chose this lovely and light dress. Pair it with some glamorous and sparkly accessories for the perfect evening sipping on fine wines.

Enchanting

This dress could easily be used to dance the night away at any of the clubs down South Beach.  Nothing is better than dancing the night away with your man in the heat of Miami!!


A huge thank you to Kendra Thornton for inviting me to participate in this challenge!!!  I hope I’ve helped inspire some outfits for you!  Have an amazing trip with your husband : ) make the most of your time together!

Happy Spring Friends!!

For my 22nd birthday this past week, my family and I went out to a west coast restaurant on Whyte Ave. The food was OK, but my dress was fantastic!  As previously mentioned in Emi’s Haul, I fell in love with this zip-front dress when she bought it.  The fabric almost feels foamy it’s so soft, and the pockets are made out of this fantastic stretchy material.  It is too comfortable to be such a fitted dress.

I paired it with a basic pair of leather sandals that I just received from my Anthropologie online shopping a few weeks ago : ) I’m so happy with them! I always have great luck with Anthro’s shoes, they always arrive in the perfect size & they’re always super comfortable.

I highly recommend anyone looking for a great basic to go to your local Anthro and try on this dress! You won’t be disappointed! : )

Wish List: Weekender

Wish List: Weekender

As you could tell from my previous travel post, I’m itching to go on a vacation!  I like packing light & avoiding the baggage check, but I also need to make sure I have everything I need!  When I go to California next summer for Rachel & I’s road trip, I’ll need to have a lot more packing space than just my suitcase.

A weekender is the perfect solution! It’s basically a giant purse, so it’s allowed on the plane as an addition to my suitcase.  Plus it’ll work for small weekend trips in the future!

Free People Weekender

I’m still on the hunt for the perfect weekender… but I think that this one is pretty gorgeous!
