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!

Miami-Bound Kendra Thornton !!

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.


The Delano Hotel Pool

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.


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!

Wish List: Tradewinds Bed Set

Wish List: Duvet Set

I’m in LOVE with this Tradewinds duvet set. It’s so soft & gorgeous! It’s an old map of exotic places that was found & recreated with bright colours for this lovely little duvet.

I love to travel & thus I have convinced myself that I am somehow worldly enough to require this duvet.

I’m a huge fan of euro pillows (my boyfriend is not) but they’re so big & soft & they really make a bed set look complete. These euros have so much detail, I just love it!

I don’t know if I could ever have this for myself, I can tell the bf would definitely veto it for it’s more feminine colours… but a girl can dream!

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!

Luggage & Travel Picks

Going away for a week? Think you need to bring half your closet & a huge suitcase ? I got away with a weeks worth of stuff for a San Fran trip in one 21″ carry-on sized (and adorable) suitcase ! : )


In my bag I packed:

1 pair of jeans, 1 pair of chinos, 1 maxi skirt, 2 pairs of shorts.  1 chambray, 1 long sleeve tee, 1 3/4 sleeve tee, 1 blouse.  2 basic tanks, 1 lounge pants, 1 scarf, & 1 leather jacket.  4 pairs of shoes, including: 1 pair of tall boots, 2 pairs of booties (different heel heights), 1 pair of sandals.  2 necklaces, 2 rings, 2 bracelets, 1 watch, & 4 hair ties.  Makeup bag with clarisonic, makeup, travel-sized shampoo, conditioner, and soap.  My travel-binder, trip agenda, and 36 hours travel planner.  Of course also my camera & comfortable neck pillow for the plane ride!


Can you believe it all fit????  Rachel was sure it wouldn’t !


Plane-ready in a metal-less outfit… comfortable in my maxi & tank .  Gonna have the best nap with my pillow : )
