Miami Outfit Challenge

Friday, May 9, 2014

This week I've had the opportunity to work with well-known travel expert, Kendra Thornton. Kendra is taking a Miami vacay with her husband this month and challenged me, along with her other favorite fashion bloggers, to create the perfect look for her romantic getaway. 

I decided to go with a classic LBD paired with summer splashes of color and pattern. Nothing is more glam and bright. This look has it all, allure, charm, elegance, femininity, and of course, eye-popping accessories!  

If you're going to take on Miami, you've got to do it with a little pizazz! 

And now a message from Kendra herself: 

Everyone needs to getaway now and then. My husband and I are going to enjoy some quality time together in Miami soon. I’ve enjoyed planning our trip, and the friendly travel experts at gogobot have been amazingly helpful, as I’ve worked at finding the perfect hotel as well as activities and entertainment for us to enjoy during our stay! We’re going to have a fabulous time, and I’ve almost completed the preparations for our trip. Before leaving, however, I need a little fashion advice.
Any time I go on vacation, I’m always sure to take plenty of photos. Of course, I want to look my best whether I’m snapping the photos myself or posing for the camera. Besides, I have a better time anywhere when I feel cool and confident in the outfit I’m wearing. Since I’m a mother of three kids, I’d like a style update before I take my trip to Miami. I need to pick a great outfit for an elegant evening with my husband. Review the following information about the hotel where we’ll be staying. Let me know what clothing and accessories you recommend. I want to be camera-ready throughout my trip!
During our romantic getaway, my husband and I will be staying at the ultra-modern Hotel Beaux Arts Miami. This architectural masterpiece rises 39-stories into the Miami sky and features many exclusive modern amenities. On the premises, guests can enjoy the Mariano Bartolome Indoor golf School or relax and enjoy rejuvenating treatments at the exclusive Enliven Salon and Spa. The hotel complex also includes a venue for virtual bowling and a full-size indoor basketball court. After enjoying these amenities during the day, my husband and I plan to indulge in a fine-dining experience at db Bistro Moderne. This restaurant, owned by world-renowned chef Daniel Boulud, features menu options inspired by traditional French bistro cuisine and modern American flavors. The décor here speaks to the elegance and romance of life in Miami through contemporary designs and spacious 16-foot ceilings. I definitely need the perfect little black dress along with some eye-popping accessories to wear to dinner here.
As a travel enthusiast, I’ve had the opportunity to go many places, and I always enjoy myself the most when I look my best in trendy fashions. I like looking cool and confident, and I find that when I look absolutely stunning I feel my best too. I’m grateful for all the help I found on Gogobot in planning this Miami getaway, and I’m looking forward to receiving expert style tips from all my favorite fashion bloggers.
