It’s been so long, I almost forgot about these! These photos were from an awesome trip Nate and I had to Miami a couple of weeks ago. I loved it so much I went back for Swim Week the very next weekend! For someone who has only been to Miami once before [and only technically–for boarding a cruise] I sure have made it my business to be a frequent flyer (or should I say driver?).

For those of you who have been to this sweltering city, you know that it’s virtually impossible to keep cool, and finding stylish outfits that won’t weigh you down seem next to impossible.

Enter the casual LBD. This dress, especially with its cutouts, make the heat semi-bearable. Accessories have to be slight as well, because no one needs tons of jewelry hanging around and adding to the bulk and heat.

So, hilarious story. Or maybe gross, your choice. Either way, the way this outfit shoot started was with a hat and straightened hair. About 5 minutes in, I decided to ditch the hat because it looked too “little girl” with this outfit. I know, I’m weird.

I thought my straight hair would be fine, then about five seconds later (literally) I found myself sweating all over creation. Whatever, I decided to slick it back and make it look like I meant to do it. Yeah well, I’m not that clever, but the cat’s out of the bag I guess. Who knew sweat was a hair product! Haha! Gross. Sorry guys.

Hope your week is off to a great start 🙂
