Over MLK weekend, we had the chance to spend several days in Miami for the wedding of two friends from college. Rather than stay in a hotel, we opted for an AirBNB in the neighborhood. Living in New York, we rarely get a chance to drive, but decided to rent a car to better explore our surroundings. After a two hour fiasco at the car rental center, and a mild panic attack behind the wheel for the first time in a year, it turned out to be an excellent choice–we spent the weekend exploring Miami’s diverse areas, from South Beach to Little Havana, and celebrating love, sun, sand, deep fryers and al fresco happy hours.
Photo diary below.
At the beautiful, isolated, Key Biscayne beach. Wearing a 3.1 Philip Lim blazer, vintage Levi’s cutoffs gifted by my roommate, and Prada sunglasses (pictured later).
The lauded deep-fried fish sandwich (it was magnificent) at La Camaronera, an authentic Little Havana “fish shack” we found via an Andrew Zimmern recommendation.
I loved the rustic bar (and the gin cocktails) at the South Beach’s Raleigh Hotel.
Restaurant Michael Schwartz served up an amazing poolside lunch, including these homemade potato chips & onion dip.
Hanging out in Key Biscayne. Shoes: Vera Wang (get em at 45% off), Tote Bag: Massimo Dutti, Newspaper: New York Times Sunday (the best read of the week).
Gorgeous fruits & vegetables at the Coconut Grove Farmers Market, a great neighborhood gem, where I chugged what may the best orange juice I have ever tasted.
Enjoying a stroll on the beach.
The Raleigh Hotel’s famous Art Deco lobby. Need: that mirrored table, those bright pillows, that gold clam.
