Miami has struck a delicate balance between being the ultimate travel destination and offering a great quality of life. However, during high season, the pendulum swings toward catering to visitors and mayhem ensues. So, when Miami is in the peak of tourism season, Miami-ans – particularly Miami Beach locals – travel frequently.
Since early March, we have been on a binge of staycations, vacations, family trips and work trips. And, as the police barricades continue to go up on Ocean, Collins, and Washington, we are preparing to head out for the weekend again. After all, evacuating for Memorial Day is pretty much a local tradition by this point. So as you get ready to pack your bags (again), here’s a round-up on our favorite travel fashion. Bon voyage!
1. Casual, Comfortable Airport Look: This look takes you comfortably through the airport, while still looking cute. The formula? Leather paneled leggings, embellished sneakers, a sweatshirt, a denim jacket, and, if you’re feeling sassy, a beanie. Don’t forget to grab a chic pair of headphones, like our favorite Frends Taylor in Rose Gold.
2. From Airport to Cold Climes: The key to this highly-adaptable look is layers. We started with a sweater vest and layered over a jean jacket for the airplane. As soon as we made it outside, we pulled on this super warm Olivia Pope-inspired coat from The Limited’s Scandal collection.
3. Cute and Casual Roadtrip: When we go on roadtrips, we like to be comfortable but we also like to look chic because we want to be able to get out anywhere and feel confident. A simple, cotton sundress with a denim jacket works best for us. Make sure to mix in flat shoes that are easy to walk in, like these Silence + Noise booties (similar), so you can explore any terrain you encounter.
4. Airport to Cool City: Out of our four looks, this one is our favorite because it encompasses the best parts of the other three outfits. And, most importantly, we can wear it anywhere so we do not have to think twice about changing when we arrive at our destination. The most important part in putting it together is a great pair of overalls. The ones we are wearing are our favorite. Can you believe we found them for less than $40 at Forever 21 (similar)?
