Glam Travel: Miami, Florida
Cue the theme music !Party in the city where the heat is on all night, on the beach till the break of dawn. Welcome to Miami. Bienvenidos a Miami. Ayeeeeee! I secretly sing that song to myself each time we land in the M I Ya Yo.
Ahhhh Miami! I personally LOVE traveling to Miami. It is a perfect melting pot of culture, fashion and luxury. The women are beautiful, the hotels are amazing and there is so much to do! I get the pleasure of visiting multiple times a year to catch up with the in laws and we always take a few days to splurge and stay in a nice hotel on the beach.
This recent trip we decided to try some of the top 10 hotels in Miami. Those hotels were: Faena, The Miami Edition and Casa Faena. Now, if you are bougie ORRR like to play bougie on vacation then you will LOVE these hotels. I have become a hotel snob over the years and I pay attention to the small details. I personally love a place that has an amazing luxurious aroma as soon as you walk into the lobby. They say that smell can trigger emotions and memories. And I definitely believe that is true. So when I walk into a hotel I want the aroma to make me feel relaxed, rejuvenated, love, rich, happy, sexy. ALL OF THAT.
But any-who, each hotel, unique in its own way served as amazing backdrops for all of my selfies and candid photos that my amazing hubby captured(on his iPhone X). My favorite hotel was Faena. Beyonce and Jay Z had literally JUST CHECKED OUT 30 min before hubby and I arrived. I still blame it on our uber driver who decided to take a “short cut” from Fort Lauderdale airport to our hotel that made me miss Queen Bey. But my point for mentioning that was, if Beyonce and Jay Z are staying at Faena you know this is a top notch hotel. Everything is next level (just like Bey…and YES, I'm a member of the bee hive)
As far as fashion? Oh yes mam! Your girl was dressed to kill (or at least I think so) I made it a point to slay on EVERY occasion. We sitting by the pool? SLAY. We lounging on the beach? SLAY. Dinner? SLAY. Sleep? DOUBLE SLAY! Yes, I slayed in my sleep girl. I will save that for a later blog post though. But for this trip I started shopping a month in advance for my outfits. I hate going to the mall to shop so I found 99% of my outfits online. Its so much easier that way. The best tip I can give for planning your outfits for a vacation is:1. start early 2. pick pieces that can serve for multiple uses 3. choose shoes that you can wear with everything 4. less is more 5. invest in nice sunglasses and purse.
So I hope you guys enjoy these outfits as much as I enjoyed wearing them! I list where everything is from under each photo.- Love Ash
