Does anybody else have Will Smith stuck in their head?! No? Just me? Okay… Recently I was approached by the lovely Kendra Thornton to be apart of her Kendra's Night Out Miami Vacation Challenge, that's a mouthful. And because when it comes to shopping I just can't help myself, I whipped up some inspiration for her to rock on a beautiful trip to Miami, land of ArtDeco, Cuban sandwiches, and first rate nightlife.
Challenge Extended: I have always loved the 1920s period in fashion. There were so many amazing outfits. The beaded dresses, feather headdresses and perfect makeup looks just always give me ideas for what to wear. I feel like I am headed to the 1920s again with my trip to Miami. My husband and I decided to go for a really lavish hotel that we found on gogobot. It's called the Biltmore Estate, and it's one of the oldest historical sites in Miami. I feel so lucky to stay here, but I am in desperate need of some fashion advice. My wardrobe is too mommy for Miami! I want to go to a few different romantic spots with my husband and just enjoy myself on our break, but I don't even know where to look for a new outfit. I definitely need a new look for a special date that my husband and I have planned. It would be amazing to have a day look that was comfortable enough to wear around the hotel and another evening look to go out in. We are going to spend some time exploring the historical and cultural areas of Miami like Little Havana and even do a little shopping at the Lincoln Road Mall. I can't wait to just relax and take a break from life in Miami. Any ideas that you have would make it easier to pack some gorgeous new digs for the trip.

I wanted to give Kendra a fresh and modern look for her trip! Glamourous, yet casual and functional. I like to travel light, if I can use the same accessories for most of my looks I am a happy
camper traveler. Seriously, I'd never go camping, do you know me at all!?! So I found some genius pieces to rock with all of her day options and a few even transition perfectly for night!!! Hooray! I loved the idea of this brilliant eyelet top paired with a chic pair of shorts for exploring the grounds of the absolutely stunning hotel! I'm obsessed with both dresses and thought they would be perfect for exploring little Havana or doing some serious shopping at Lincoln Road mall! Add the beautiful crystal headband and you are ready for a night out in full 20's glamour!!
Hello Hot Stuff!!! This jumpsuit is just magical and so unbelievably chic! Light and perfect for Miami's sweltering heat. I loved the idea of pairing it with a brilliant pair of floral heels, a bold clutch, a dainty bracelet, and two statement pieces. I am a big fan of House of Harlow and both of these pieces have a lil' Art Deco something-something that just completes the Miami look completely.
Where are you vacationing this summer? What's your best packing tip?? Happy Traveling!
