Good morning! I have a rare Saturday post for you today because I want to share what I wore in Miami this week.
We spent a lot of time shooting spring outfits, which was the primary purpose of the trip, so I didn’t really do any sight-seeing or go very far off the resort property, but I did take pictures of the outfits I wore.
SIZING NOTES: I’m 5’5″ and I usually wear a small in tops and dresses, a 29 in jeans, and a size 8 shoe. Gifted items are indicated by c/o; everything else I purchased myself.
What I Wore In Miami
I flew to Miami on Super Bowl Sunday, and our Philadelphia Eagles were playing, so of course I had to represent. Everywhere I went, I was greeted with Go Birds! It was a fun day… in spite of the disappointing loss in the last few minutes of the game.
These P448 sneakers are new! I just found them shopping at Nordstrom last week. I was a little nervous to wear them traveling without breaking them in first, but they felt just like the pair I’ve had for years. P448 never disappoints!
We went to the restaurant in the hotel for dinner that night, so I wore yet another Eagles tee (short sleeve this time) and white crop bootcut jeans.
I really like the look of these white P448 sneakers with the white denim for spring. I front-tucked the top and added a belt, to keep the casual look polished.
Alison arrived early the next morning, and we started shooting as soon as she dropped her stuff in her room. This was the view from one of our photo locations… the colors were simply amazing!
We took a break for lunch, and then I spent an hour by the pool before getting fixed up to take more pictures before dinner.
I wore a swimsuit from last year (that’s still in stock, yay!) and this new coverup. It was perfect for having lunch at the poolside cafe.
And here is the one lone picture I got with Alison… She prefers to stay behind the camera, but I insisted on a quick selfie.
If you’re local, she does amazing family pictures, and she works at the Jersey Shore all summer. You can check out her site HERE.
This was the last outfit I photographed that afternoon, so I went ahead and wore it to dinner. It’s more of a casual dress, and I actually photographed it with flats, but I threw on the platform sandals for dinner because I knew I’d feel more confident in heels.
These shoes are everywhere this season, and they’re remarkably comfortable and walkable, considering the height. Highly recommend, if you like a platform sandal.
We were up and outside by the pool at 7AM the next morning to get pictures when the light was at its best. Then I took a break to do some work on a deck overlooking the pool.
I always bring joggers and my Athleta Pranayma Wrap when I travel for hanging out in the lobby (or outside, when it’s nice) to work before getting showered and dressed for the day.
This was my view… not half bad, eh? (I pilfered this picture from my Instagram Story, so that’s why it has the caption.) And I went ahead and made the picture clickable, in case you missed my Denim Trends for Spring 2023!
After that, I got dressed to meet the girls at the poolside cafe for lunch. I had planned for some pool time after that, but I ended up going back to my room for a nap. I was exhausted!
This is what I wore to lunch… This hat is on sale, and it’s great for travel because it folds up and fits right inside your suitcase!
That night, we all went out to eat at Ocean Social at Eden Roc. It was . . . interesting. Can’t say I’d recommend it, but it was a pretty spot on the water.
We got this group picture before we left our hotel. Alison has a better one from her camera, but this iPhone shot will do for now.
These are the ladies who met me down there, such beautiful women inside and out! Tania and Jen haven’t posted their outfit details yet, but I linked to Lindsey’s.
Here’s a better shot of my jumpsuit. It’s currently on sale, and very comfortable. I felt okay in the size small, but you may want to size up if in between, or if you have a larger chest.
I also highly recommend these shoes. I love the strappy style, and they’re very comfortable. We had to walk quite a bit to get from our Uber to the restaurant, and I was just fine! In fact, I like them so much, I got home and ordered the green.
I spent my last full day in Miami relaxing and catching up on blog work by the pool. I started out wearing jeans over my swimsuit because the morning was chilly, but I eventually switched to shorts.

By that evening, we were all tired and not feeling great, so we decided to cancel our dinner reservations at MILA and just grab a bite to eat at the hotel.
I was tempted to keep my swimsuit and jeans on, but I rallied at the last minute and got dressed appropriately. We kept it casual because we just sat in the lounge area.
And this is what I wore to travel home on Thursday. Tania had these t-shirts made for us, super fun! The idea was to wear them together, but we didn’t get quite that coordinated, so I wore mine to travel home.
KUT denim jacket (S) // Girls Trip In Progress tee (S) // MOTHER Dazzler (29) (similar for less) // P448 sneakers (39) // earrings // necklace // bracelet // Delsey suitcase // Away suitcase // Goyard GM (similar for less)
And that’s a wrap! As I said, this was really more work trip than vacation, so we didn’t get out and about much. While I don’t have a lot of daytime outfits to share here, we did photograph a bunch, and I’ll be rolling them out once I get my pictures back. I can’t wait to see them!
