South Beach, Miami Packing Guide

It is fa-reezing in Dallas right now. Ok, ok so it might not be as bad as other cold-weather cities. But it’s 35 degrees today and I am not a fan. I don’t do well in the cold. It’s just not my cup of tea. So I’m getting the hell out of town and heading to Miami this Saturday! The beach, palm trees and 80 degree-weather is calling my name and Saturday cannot come soon enough. This is a little Miami Packing Guide I threw together with everything I plan on taking on my trip while enjoying coconuts on the beach. Bodysuits, denim cut-offs and swimsuits is what I’ll be living in this weekend.

Shopping for warm-weather vacations is always difficult this time of year so I thought this Miami packing guide might be helpful for anyone else traveling to tropical locations this winter. I love versatile pieces that I can wear on vacation and throughout the year. Like this jumpsuit under $50! Perfect for a night out in Miami, or even for the holidays. I’m also swooning over this burnt orange number and I’m trying something a little different and wearing a bodysuit on the beach instead of a bathing suit. I fell in love with this blush, lace-up style so I’m making it work. But I also love this vintage-style two piece!

I’ve been planning like a mad woman because there are so many great things to see while in Miami. I’ve been making a list of my top places to see, shop and eat… all for the perfect photos, of course. A few places on my list include The Raleigh Hotel (for the pool, obviously), Broken Shaker, Design District, Little Havana and the infamous pink and white umbrellas on the beach at the SLS South Beach Hotel. So much to see!!! Can you tell I’m beyond excited? Miami has been on my list for a very long time so I am ecstatic to finally get to visit. We’ll be staying at the Nautilus Hotel which looks incredible. Is it Saturday yet?!

  • That California vitamin sea 🌊✨
  • #ad | Sunny weather calls for a day of beach cruising and naps in the sand 🌊🌴☀️Here's a peek into my beach bag essentials! I've recently swapped out most of my chemical products to mineral-based alternatives, and this @coola Mineral Body Sunscreen has quickly become a fave. Why? It's SPF 30, certified- vegan, coral reef friendly, uses more than 70% organic ingredients, AND has a sheer finish. Check, check and check to all my sunscreen requirements 😎Have you switched to mineral sunscreens? @ultabeauty #coola #mineralalltheway #suncare #beachessentials #summerready
  • I should really clean this mirror more often 🤔 Anyway... here’s my uniform as of lately. Shoutout to @aninebingofficial for making the best “lived in” tees 👊🏼 #liketkit
  • Spent the day taking some serious (and necessary) self care. Experienced some strange and kind of scary things over the past week because I wasn’t taking care of myself. Poor diet, lack of sleep, etc. The older I get, the more I realize how important it is to take care of yourself. It’s the best thing you can do for your wellbeing and state of mind✌🏼
  • Always a sucker for a beautiful car 🙌🏼🙈♥️ Thanks for the royal treatment @mynuface! Check out IG Stories to see my #fixmoment and the new FIX Line Smoothing Device I’ll be using every night for the rest of my life 😆👏🏼
  • A day late but the feelings don’t change just because it isn’t Valentine’s Day anymore 😉 Thankful for this man and everything he does for us (Charlie Boy included 🐾). Thank you for having patience, for listening, and for always loving me, even at my worst. Love you today, yesterday and everyday after ♥️ Ok, mushy rant over 😎
