What to pack and do in Miami

We spent last weekend in Miami for my friend Rachel‘s bachelorette weekend!  A lot of you reached out with outfit questions and a few said you have upcoming trips so I thought it would be fun to post all of our Miami details…

Since the wedding will be in Italy, the bride gave all of the girls these custom ciao bella T-shirts (for a group pic!) and a Kayu travel pouch when we arrived.

What we did:

Casa Tua

For dinner the first night we went to Casa Tua. This is my favorite Miami spot!  Ask for a table outside in the garden – it is really charming.  This would be a perfect option for a date night too.

Coconut Grove Run

In the morning, a few of us ran to Starbucks and found a nice running trail to go through.  Always love finding a new run route on vacation to change things up!  Here is a longer route option.


For a fun girls night out, we went to Baoli!  This is one of those Eurpean style places where when dinner is over, it turns into a big party! We kicked off our heels and danced the night away under streaming lights!  This is a great place for a special occasion group dinner.

1 hotel south beach

We stopped in to the rooftop to hang before dinner.  It has scenic views of the water and beautiful palm trees.

What to wear:

on the plane

This tumi carry on is the best.  It fits so much when you don’t want to check a bag. I always bring these breakfast bars and these snack bars in my carry on.

Statement earrings

We all brought fun earrings!  Mercedes Salazar makes really cute ones for a beach trip! I wore this under $50 Roller Rabbit turquoise pair a few times too!

By the water

For a boat day, I wore a Marysia Bikini top (on sale) these turquoise earrings and this washable coverup.  This sunscreen is my new favorite.  Both Rachel and Amy had this cute white sarong.

For a night out

This one shoulder dress is so easy to throw on with sandals or heels. Rachel wore this Johanna Ortiz bodysuit with white shorts and it was such a cute ‘bride to be’ outfit on her!

Day time dresses

I brought this comfortable stripe dress and ended up wearing it over my bathing suit.

For a night in

A few of the girls wore these Roller Rabbit Pajamas for our night in.
