…Or at least I was! I took a much-needed five-day trip late last month, stayed at the Fontainebleau and dealt with the rainiest, most depressing vacation weather I’ve ever experienced. Regardless, it was nice to get away and in honor of #TBT, I’m recapping the trip here.
Even though my hotel was in a more touristy part of town, I managed to venture into the actual city a few times. One of my first stops was a trip to Wynnwood, which is an up-and-coming neighborhood full of cool art galleries and such. It was the one place I wanted to go before I even got to Miami and I am so glad I took my DSLR with me the day I went there. I’m sharing a few shots from day I spent in Wynnwood as well as outfit details. Miami style was so interesting. I expected to see tons of color and beachwear and while that look definitely shows up a lot around South Beach, the people I met in the actual city had a very different look – lots of hats, oversized silhouettes and – best of all – tons of all-black outfits. Obviously I was happy about that because it’s pretty much exactly how I dress.
In addition to some outfit/scenery shots, I’ve included a little bit about some of the places I went while on my trip. Hope you’ll use some of these suggestions if you’re ever in Miami!
- Michael’s Genuine: Seriously delicious food and friendly service. Get the fried chicken sandwich if you go for lunch!
- Joe’s Stone Crab: We have this restaurant in Chicago but I still wanted to eat fresh coastal crab so I had dinner there one night. I would say that this was the best meal if you’re just looking at the food alone. The seafood bisque is amazing but be prepared for a long, long wait!
- Gigi’s: Great food and a kitchen that stays open late. What more could I want? We stopped there after a night at Bardot.
