Good afternoon lovelies! So I barely slept at all last night, I’m far too excited about heading to Miami for the Cabana Show this weekend as well as Swim Week happening this weekend in Miami Beach! Just jumped off the plane and I’m here- ready for an exciting weekend ahead of me! Prepared for the day with my daily caffeine dose and then grabbed my luggage of fun beachy clothes ready for Miami’s heat- you’ll be seeing more outfit details very soon, I’m sure, during my trip here! 

So this is a long awaited blog post from when we took pictures last weekend but I couldn’t not share this beachy staple with you! So, we shot these pictures at Coco Reef and Elbow Beach Clubs while having a drink and a delicious date night meal down at Mickey’s restaurant right on the beach- one of my favorites! (I really can’t complain about my paradise living!) My go to summer drink, if I’m not have my typical vodka-water-roses, is any berry flavored mojito- and this was my first one down at the beach this summer! (But I’m sure there is many more to come!)

I’m so excited to rock my salty waves look, and some beachy vibes down here at The Cabana Show this weekend! I’ve been anticipating this work trip for ages and I’m so excited to finally be here and see what a buying trip is all about! – I’m feeling so lucky to be offered this experience, THANK YOU ATELERIE! 
Knowing what to pack sometimes can be very difficult. You want to look classy yet laid back, especially on a work related summery trip, and sometimes you never know what traveling will throw at you. Will you be going out for evening meals, what’s sensible work entire for days at Cabana or strolling through the local beach scene more often then anything else? Well, I think a button down shirt dress is one versatile piece you should add to your suitcase if you are hitting a warmer destination this summer! What I like about this Rails one in particular is how you can wear it so many ways to mix up your style and make it location/ event specific. Whether you’re wearing it, as I did, belted for a date night on the beach or if you leave it unbuttoned completely and over your new favorite bikini as a cover up- I think it’s great you have so many options to play around with, making it a no brainer! It’s easy and, what I believe, is a summer essential and your outfit is basically done all in one with out needing to stress too much about pairing it with bottoms or anything- ideal really! I’m looking forward to even wearing it knotted in the front and long at the back for that high low vibe and this current knot trend right now. Not necessarily does it need to be a striped pattern either, but I am a sucker for a good striped shirt and you know stripes will be timeless at least- which is exactly why I love it so much! 

Now – time to get ready and head down to the show and then maybe the beach or have a dip in the pool later (hopefully, cocktail in hand)- so stay posted this weekend for sneak peaks of upcoming trends, designer’s collections, items that could be in store soon/ next season, my outfits of the day and so much more in a Ci Ci goes M.I.A edition! Most importantly- a massive thank you to my amazing bosses for bringing me on this trip with them and to have this amazing opportunity! Stay posted!!!
