Weekend Wear: Miami

My college girlfriends and I try to plan a mini reunion vacation weekend every year to catch up, chit chat, and reminisce our college days. This year we chose to go to Miami to sip mojitos and soak in the sun while doing all these things (And we leave in a few hours! Warm weather, here we come!). Going back to the point of this post...Packing for warm weather should be easy for me since I was born and raised in the warm tropics of Puerto Rico. But no, it's not easy. Never is when it comes to me and packing. To make the packing process somewhat easier I write countless lists of things to bring, outfits for each day/night and try to organize myself as much as possible before starting to take things out of the closet. We'll have two solid days of beach time (and some shopping) and three nights of cocktails, dinner and dancing (reservations have been made at De Rodriguez, The Forge, and River Oyster Bar). Here are some of the essentials I'll be bringing for our girl's weekend in Miami.
Mini cocktail dress, $368, Wildfox Couture oversized sweater, €129, Cotton shirt, $56, Diesel t shirt, £65, All Saints leather biker jacket, $495, Long maxi skirt, £132, H&M short jean shorts, £15, Zimmermann bikini swimwear, £74, COACH platform heels, $198, Diane von Fürstenberg flat leather sandals, $200, Nine west handbag, $69, Kate spade necklace, $148, Melinda Maria rose gold ring, $68, Wet Seal straw fedora, $11, Karen walker sunglasses, $180, Clarins Sunscreen Soothing Cream SPF 20, $38, Clarins Sun Control Stick SPF 30, $26, Bayswater iPad Sleeve Chocolate Natural Leather, $420

  19. Such a great list. I am a horrible person at packing. I always question my decisions. Your heart sweater is amazing. And that jacket is so fabulous.

  20. I'm a terrible packer, but I don't mind packing for warm weather (as much) because my suitcase ends up so much lighter.

    PS - Love, love that bikini!

  24. The All Saints leather jacket and the Wildfox Sweater are my faves! The leather jacket reminds me of Alexander Wang's moto jacket. Great finds thanks!
