Miami Beach Vacation Outfits

If you didn’t know from my Miami Packing Essentials post a few weeks ago, I went on vacation to Miami Beach, FL. We stayed at the Confidante which is part of the Unbound Collection by Hyatt Hotels (you’ll eventually realize that Hyatt is my favorite hotel chain). I had the most amazing time with a few of my friends, just relaxing on the beach or by the pool, having a few drinks, laughing, tanning and just enjoying each other’s company. We spent most of our time relaxing but I did manage to get out of my bathing suit a few times so I thought I’d show you a few of my outfits.

The first day we arrived we mainly just went to the beach and had a few drinks so we were preparing to be in full relaxation mode. We also went out to the Wynwood area for dinner and had some delicious tacos at Coyo Taco. They were SO yummy!

The following day I went to the Miami Seaquarium and saw basically every show they had for the day! It was fun because I’ve never been to an aquarium before so it was cool to see how big those animals are in real life. It was unreal!

That same night we also went out to the club because what else do you do in Miami? We went to LIV, of course, so I had to put on this super cool sparkly dress. I actually borrowed it from my friend!

The next day, we were all so exhausted so we decided to just relax by the pool and have some drinks. It was really nice out this day so we got some great tanning time in and even made good friends with the bar tenders. They told us about a few good bars to go to in South Beach too!

On our second to last day, we went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday with dinner at Komodo. It was also Miami Spice, which is similar to Restaurant Week in New York, and got a really great deal on our meal! It also helps that the food was absolutely delicious.

Finally, it was our last day and our flight was in the afternoon so we got up bright and early and went to the beach one last time. Seeing the early morning sun was beautiful and very satisfying knowing that we had an amazing trip. I’m so thankful that I was able to spend that quality time with my friends, create new memories, and have new experiences with them!

OOTD: Casual, Running Errands

I personally love to run errands and get things done on a Saturday afternoon after getting a good workout in at the gym and having a nice breakfast and a big cup of coffee. That’s just when I feel the most productive and excited to work on the fun things in my life, like this wonderful blessing I call my blog. And to be honest, I also love to run around in sweatpants and a sweatshirt and not care what I look like because it’s easier and comfier. But in the summer it’s so easy to put together a cute and casual outfit, that I actually prefer to put on a pair of denim shorts and a white t-shirt to run my errands. Like I’ve mentioned before, I feel way more productive when I get dressed and look put together.

I have also recently been thinking about my future and what I want out of my life. I’ve had a lot of changes going on recently, and I suddenly felt like my future was a totally blank slate which was both terrifying and exciting. It’s funny the way life/the universe/God/whatever you want to call it shows us what we’re supposed to do. It’s sometimes as gentle as a good gut feeling but sometimes it comes in the form of a tough loss. It forced me to sit down and really think about where I want my life go to in the next 2, 5 or 10 years. And not just sit down, but WRITE it down so it’s out in the world to manifest. I know I’ve got some work to do on myself, but I want to embrace the change and take this time to explore myself because I truly feel like I can do whatever I set my mind to.
