Monday Musings- A Few Things I Wore in Miami
Happy Monday, ladies. The purpose of my trip to Miami last week was to get some professional photos for the blog and do some networking with a few blogger friends. Working with a professional photographer was fascinating and I’m really anxious to see the photos. Here are a few non-pro, iPhone shots of what I wore. It’s funny, but I didn’t pack many clothes to just hang out on this trip.
I wore several pairs of my Eileen Fisher washable crepe slim ankle pants on this trip because they’re super comfy and pack like a dream. I never travel without at least 2-3 pairs in my suitcase for that very reason and I usually wear them to fly. I can’t say enough great things about this white shirt. I traveled in it all day, hung it up after dinner with the ladies, then pulled it out the following day and it looked as crisp as when I started. My Jack Rogers sandals got a lot of wear on this trip because they’re comfy, stay on without much toe-gripping, and allow my feet to swell where they need to…which always happens when I’m eating more salt than usual.
We stayed at the Edition, in Miami beach. The hotel was really beautiful with pretty spots to sit and work everywhere. They were not very cooperative about us taking photos with a camera (phone photos were fine) which surprised us all but we worked around it.
A few days later I wore this rather pedestrian outfit. It was breezy so although the other gals were wearing shorts, sun dresses, or bathing suits, I wore another pair of EF crepe pants, white platform sneakers, a white tank, and a lavender shirt. This was what I reverted to between photo sessions and to have lunch outside. I wasn’t planning to get a photo of this outfit, but that’s what happens when you get a few bloggers together, all armed with cell phones 🙂 This pair of pants is slightly longer than my black pair above. I’m not sure why, but I think it’s because they haven’t been through the washer and drier yet.
Tania and I roomed together. Her side of the closet was filled with floral, colorful, flowy dresses that intrigued me. They’re so far from my style recipe, I admit to being a bit mesmerized. She looked amazing in the above dress so I tried it on. While very pretty and fun, I feel a bit like a fish out of water in it. She is several inches taller than me, but that’s not why it feels off. It’s just the style. Too much of everything for me.
This is what I wore for dinner out on Valentine’s Day. My feet were not happy campers by this time of day, so I skipped these low-heeled nude sandals I’d planned to wear and slipped back into my flats. I wore another pair of slim crepe pants in Ocean (blue) with a white shirt (similar here) I’d bought over the holidays but never got a chance to wear. I topped it off with my Jennifer pearl necklace which improves every outfit. You can get 15% off their entire website with the code AWSL at checkout.
Outfit of the week
This week’s outfit features two footwear options depending on how much walking you plan to be doing. I also included a few trending themes for spring. This vegan leather bag comes in lots of colors and comes in several sizes. Woven bags are trending for spring, as are double denim looks and chunkier, angular silver jewelry.
Which shoes would you choose for this look?
Do you ever feel discouraged? Maybe like you’re not doing enough? I’ve been battling that feeling lately, and it…
