A few girlfriends and I drove up to Swim Week this year and made it into a girls trip to Miami. Truthfully, it’s my first time staying in South Beach (I usually stay in Brickell or Key Biscayne) but it’s where all the shows were at.
If you’re traveling to Miami here are a few tips and recommendations:
Miami Parking: you might as well split the valet between your friends because driving gets so hectic around there and prices go up on the weekends!

What I Packed for Miami:
I am a freak when it comes to packing. I hate overpacking and I also hate having to take any more than just a carry on! It’s my pet-peeve! So you can understand why my favorite thing about traveling in the summer is how light I get to pack! I packed 2 outfits for all 4 days and a few extras just in case. It all fit in my Away Carry-on and a large Longchamp duffle bag!
Tips: Get packing cubes!! Fit all your purses inside your biggest purse and stuff your purse and all your shoes inside the duffle bag.
