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:

Stay

  • Gale South Beach
  • The W Hotel
  • The Stiles Hotel
  • Clevelander or The Essex Hotel – we didn’t have the greatest experience lol the rooms are teeny and the valet is at a weird spot so if you’re looking at this place, I’d recommend looking elsewhere.

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.

Packing list:

  • 4 dresses
  • 1 romper
  • 1 bikini
  • 1 cover up
  • 2 flats
  • 4 heels
  • 4 purses
  • Linen pants
  • Jeans
  • 2 crop tops
  • PJs
  • scarves, earrings, necklaces
  • curling wand
  • Make up

Total = 10+ outfits! Scroll down to shop my packing list!
