MIAMI BOUND Packing List

I am sooo excited I am headed to Miami next month!!! It’s one of those cities on my bucket list, and lucky for me, I was able to extend a business trip into the weekend with a friend/client. I am pulling out pieces from the archives (i.e. “back of the closet/never worn”) and picking up a few new pieces here and there. But if I were to start from scratch, it might go a little something like this…

Diane von Furstenberg “Gracie” clutch, $245  / 6. Alice + Olivia glittered jumpsuit, $140 / 7. BEC&BRIDGE “Bellini” drape sash dress, $338 / 8. Catherine Malandrino jumpsuit, $395 / 9.

  1. Black/white/glam my favourite combo! Loving all the chrome accents – do u think they will replace gold this year? I have been seeing a lot of silver again!

  2. That emerald jumpsuit — I die! What a perfect reason to break out that number. And it will be versatile thru out the year since its thee color of 2013! So jealz of your trip! 🙂

  3. Love all of your picks! And the emerald jumpsuit is just too much. I can picture it with the white blazer and heels. You’ll look gorgeous!!! 🙂

  4. oh man the Alice + olivia jumpsuit I think I NEED to get and the Catherine Malandrino one is going on my save for it list. I love myself a good jumpsuit!

    1. Thanks for the tip! I’m staying at The Palms Hotel which I think is north of South Beach. Not familiar with the area, but the hotel is on the beach and looks divine…can’t wait!!!
