We hopped off the plane and immediately checked into the Nautilus Hotel - the perfect combination of both whimsical and glam to set the backdrop of our SS19 campaign. After a day of traveling, shooting in our new wrap tops, and working on our sunburns - Shake Shack was an obvious choice for dinner that evening. What better way to reward ourselves than with a burger and fries? Our neon green hoodie and snakeskin bike shorts made for the ideal outfit to grab a quick bite in.
What’s a trip to Miami without a stop at Kith? Our white painter pants and staple red polka dot blouse was the perfect outfit to spend the day getting street style inspo at their South Beach location. For dinner, it was off to trendy Katsuya for their signature spicy tuna crispy rice and Jidori chicken salad. It was the most refreshing meal to end off a day of sun, shooting and a little bit of shopping.
The next morning, I threw on my new favorite chambray shirt dress - the easiest fabric for quick changes on shoot days. Chambray dresses are quickly becoming a go-to piece to travel with because you can pair them with a sneaker for daytime and a block heel for night. We checked out Round Two Vintage for more rare vintage finds (we can’t get enough - re: our vintage tees). Then, we headed over to The Webster. The only thing more stunning than their selection of designer clothing is their insta-worthy Art Deco architecture.
There’s no better way to end our SS19 campaign with an evening at The Swan. Any place adorned with little white lights and pink roses has our name written all over it. Make sure to order The Framboise, made with sweet wine and tequila that fabulously polished off our trip to Miami.
