Travel Looks – Winter Weekend in Miami

Happy New Year! The end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 were filled with academic writing and deadlines because this is my last semester of graduate school. This is my first post of the year and it feels great to be reunited with my blog.

A trip to Miami over the long weekend for a wedding was perfect timing to escape the frigid temperatures in Atlanta. For this post I am sharing a few looks I put together for this trip. It was a fun vacation to dress for because I, like most of the U.S., have been clothed in layers out of necessity for the last few weeks.

Look 1 – Travel Day

I like to travel in comfort and style so I wore these floral joggers from Sudara (found here). Sudara’s collection of  lounge-wear and casual pieces are made by women in India who have either escaped human trafficking, or are at high risk of trafficking. In purchasing from the company you are directly helping to provide women with a sustainable income and “empowering them to live in freedom”. I paired the joggers with an off the shoulder crop top (old). Crop and old the shoulder tops were a running theme for the weekend.

Look 2 – Art Deco

Art Deco Weekend is an annual cultural festival along Ocean Drive with everything from live entertainment to a retro fashion show. We caught the Classic Car show. I wore these cropped camouflage pants (found here). They have a high waist and a flattering fit. I paired the pants with a black tank (I cut it into a crop top) and a long duster sweater (similar look here). I completed the look with a pop of pink. These satin pink slippers were a $9 steal I found recently at a Macy’s sale.

Look 3 – Winter Wedding Guest Attire

Shopping for winter weddings can be tricky, especially in a city like Miami where the temperatures are still pretty warm during the winter months. The dress code, if provided, is key to determining the formality of your attire. For winter weddings, I like darker hues and textures. For the cocktail wedding attire, I wore a charcoal off the shoulder dress with crochet lace (found here). My color scheme was pink and gray, so all of my accessories were pink, including a pink choker, pink jeweled earrings, and pink sandals (found here). The clear heel on the sandals was a nice accent.

Look 4 – Wynwood Fashion and Art

This is my favorite look and the weather, low 70s during the day, was perfect for this outfit. I stopped for a photo op at Versace’s old house before visiting the Wynwood Wall Murals. Wynwood is a nice break from South Beach with stores like Nomad Tribe, a store with artisan made apparel and goods, in addition to, art galleries, and a variety of breweries. My top and bottom are both from J. Crew. I wore this black and white off the shoulder shirt (found here) paired with a teal ruffle skirt (found here).

  1. Nice outfits. I’m jealous that this is what you’re wearing on a winter’s day in Miami, while up here in New York City , I’ve got on a hat, gloves , scarf and a hooded coat over my jeans and sweater😳😳😳😳😳!

    1. Thank you so much! LOL yes, the weather in Atlanta warmed up a tad this weekend, but when I left for Miami it was freezing. It was definitely a much needed and appreciated break from the cold. Have a great weekend! 🙂
