Spring Break Style: Miami Recap


The cutest little bar fly! On Nolan: H&M baby: Shorts, Shirt, and Sneakers


Morning walks along Ocean Drive


Legit some of the BEST tacos I’ve ever had! Bodega also has a “hidden” back room with a bar/club/game area that we loved as well!


The chic lobby at The Gale, where we stayed– a little small, but overall we really liked it…awesome rooftop pool, and two downstairs bars with live music and happy hour specials every night.  The hotel also hosts a coffee bar and the italian restaurant Dolce, which has some of the greatest meatball and polenta dishes we’ve ever had!


Rooftop views of Collins Ave


Night one outfit: Off the shoulder romper: Forever 21 | White loafters: Asos (old, similar ones I love here) |Sunnies: Quay Austrailia | Clutch: Gigi New York


I wore this pastel blue off the shoulder romper paired with white loafers to dinner on our first night, to one of Miami’s mainstays, Joe’s Stone Crab.   We go every time we’re in Miami– its super old school, and traditional and the service and food are just impeccable.


These slides, also from Forever 21, are super festive and just scream “vacation” to me.  They’re super comfortable and also under $25! I wore them during the day to the pool and also out and about town at night.


Peachy-pink off the shoulder top: H Halston (ON SALE NOW!)| Denim distressed cutoffs: One Teaspoon |Slides: Forever 21 | Bag: Chloe Faye (worn as a clutch) |Sunnies: Ray ban


I wore this second look for a casual dinner at Bodega for Taco Tuesday, followed by drinks after.  I rarely wear pink, but for some reason I was drawn to this super femme top…of course I had to pair it with my fave distressed cutoffs from One  Teaspoon to temper the girliness, and my festive slides.  If I’m going to wear pink, it may as well be in Miami, right?

I’ve written about how much I love Miami before, but seriously, its the BEST quick getaway that feels tropical, but still has the convenience of a major city! Highly recommend you go if you haven’t been!

Ways to Wear: A Leopard Tee

Not usually one for a lot of leopard, this faded version of a leopard tee caught my eye because its kind of a non-boring neutral– it has a subtle pattern which adds interest, without being too much in your face.  Leopard can be tricky because you never want to look like a cheesy 80s videostar, too overtly sexy or cheap– So here’s how I tempered the look two different ways:




Leopard tee: Topshop via Nordstrom (similar versions I love here and here) | Velvet jumper: Topshop | White booties: Zara (sold out, similar here and here) | Sunnies: Quay Austrailia | Bag: Saint Laurent

Look 1: Here, I layered the tee under a red velvet jumper dress to give an unexpected contrast in textures…the jumper is kind of old school seventies school girl , while the booties and tee are more edgy and rocker- love them paired together! Don’t be afraid to mix a texture and pattern together, as long as they aren’t too aggressive on their own and fighting for attention!




Leopard Tee: Topshop (same as above) shop other ones I like here and here | Jeans: Madewell (YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS PURCHASE I SWEAR!) | Loafers: H&M | Sheer Mesh Top : H&M

Look 2: For the second look, I decided to layer a sheer mesh dotted long sleeve top (fave layering piece of the moment) UNDER the leopard tee— I got asked all day if they “came together” which they did not– but it almost seems like they could have, right?  I paired them with my FAVE pair of black ripped skinnies of all time, the Madewell skinny jeans, and these caramel colored loafer slides from H&M.  The color of the slides brings out the warm tones in the leopard tee, tying it all together.  The look is totally neutral, yet visually interesting.

On an unrelated note, its officially SPRING BREAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  So excited to be off with Tim and Nolan for the next week– we’re headed to Miami on Monday, so stay tuned to Instagram for lots of warm weather outfit inspo!
