What I Wore to Miami Swim Week – Part 1

August 7, 2017

About 2 years ago, Tom and I did that crazy, glorious thing that some couples tend to do, and packed up our things for a 6-week road trip across the United States. Admittedly, the first two times we visited were not our greatest. We arrived in what was considered a rare torrential downpour for full days of rain, with barely a break to see South Beach or any sun, but hey, great company and no injuries only meant I count my blessing because we still had a great time. Since moving to Florida, I’ve visited a couple of times and absolutely loved it. Palm trees, blue ocean water, sandy beaches, endless live latin music and great food? What’s not to love?

When I found out SWIM MIAMI was happening just a few weeks out, I booked a weekend away at Hotel Colonade, as seen in my last post here. You know I have a love for Zimmermann and while I think so many of their dresses are worth the investment, I tend to save more for travel and special splurges. As posted in my Instastories the week before, I purchased this beautiful dress by Zimmermann, and paired it with my Miu Miu bow heels and one of my favourite summer bags (sold out, but links a few cute ones below). My hair is usually completely out of control when it rains or is humid, so I used Moroccanoil travel products, including the Moroccanoil Treatment and then the Styling Cream.

 Of course, there’s something about that warm breeze that catches a flowing dress that screams summer is here. This outfit felt fun, feminine, yet flirty. With a flattering cutout and classic shape, it’s a dress I’ll wear over and over again for this summer and the next. For those interested in purchasing, I’m a size 1, which is like a size 2-4 US or size 8 UK in dresses.

The Miu Miu heels are no longer available, but I am really surprised to find an exact dupe of these for a tiny fraction of what I’ve paid, so I’ve linked them below. Alternatives for the cute ruffle bag I take almost everywhere also linked below!

I’ll be posting a recap on my favourite looks from the runway shortly, so follow me on Bloglovin’ or subscribe below to stay up to date.

Looking forward to seeing you back for my next post!

    The Zimmermann dress is more than gorgeous! I know how much you wanted one of them and I’m really glad you finally decided to make the purchase :). Chose right! The print, cut and tie detail in front are all gorgeous! As for your hair, it looked sleeker than ever after using the Maroccan oil hair products! Have a great week ahead! x

    Can you believe I haven’t been to Miami yet? I’ve been to Orlando (so not the same thing). =) I love Zimmerman too but have yet to splurge on one of their pieces. This dress is so pretty and perfect for summer. I love the center cut out which adds a bit of sexiness to the outfit. The white mules are gorgeous and bummed they are sold out. I totally think white shoes for summer are the best! xoxo, Christine
