Kendra Thornton is a well known travel expert that has been featured on several news channels and shows such as Tyra Banks and Nate Berkus (my dream job). Kendra is planning an upcoming getaway to Miami, Florida with her husband and is in need of some inspiration. Since I love fashion and travel I thought I'd help her out! Miami is known for its luxury and fashion so I decided to give her two looks that fit that style.
The W South Beach which is probably one of the most popular places on the beach to visit. The hotel has an amazing spa and over 300 feet of gourmet restaurants, shops, private beach and infinity pools. It's located right in the middle of South Beach, which will make it easy to explore and find some interesting boutiques.
She's definitely going to need an outfit that will translate from walking around shopping, to lounging on the beach. I decided to put her in these really cute blue scalloped shorts (similar here) and a simple white top. These comfortable black sandals are also the perfect addition to this outfit, and inside of her bag she can toss a pair of flip flops to swap into before she hits the beach. Miami is a place where posh is just about synonymous with everything. From the architecture to the little cafes, there are a variety of places to stroll through. I decided to place her in this look because plain jean shorts could appear too casual but I did not want her to look overly dressed up since she wants to look and feel great while she walks around South Beach.
Another part of the trip will likely be spent at the W's spa called Bliss. There's also a gym called SWEAT at the hotel. Since she loves to work out even on vacation, she'll be taking some time off from exploring the city to run and get her workouts in. If you plan on eating a lot during vacation, it's not a bad idea to stick in a 20 minute work out before you get your day started.
Since Kendra wants to completely wow her husband and make his jaw drop with an outfit for a special night out on the town, I decided to put her in this Kim Kardashian inspired outfit. Since Kimmy is the Queen of Miami I thought it would be fitting. Whenever I see the color white I think of Miami! White is a very simple color but worn the correct way, could also be very sexy as well. Since Kendra is also a Mom I didn't want to put her in something too revealing but this clingy white dress is super sexy especially paired with a nude high heeled sandal.
Kendra has a lot of great ideas of things to do while she's in Miami. Here are a few of hers and some more suggestions that she might consider on this trip:
- Relaxing on the beach
- Enjoying a Basketball game
- Dining at a variety of restaurants
- Going out dancing or taking a salsa dance class
- Enjoying a spa
- Riding on a jet ski
