Headed to Miami Beach soon? Check out my must-haves for your MIA escape that I recently shared with Marriott’s Travel Blog, The Florida Buzz Blog.
With temperatures beginning to cool off in Miami Beach, days in the sand and evenings out on the town are absolute perfection. Plan a fun getaway and arrive chic in this fashionable town with these Packing Essentials For Your Miami Beach Escape:
Your Best Bikini
Miami Beach is known for countless pool parties and the most beautiful beaches in the world so pack your best bikini. I love colorful Trina Turk string bikinis with gold jewels, especially the Plumas print.
Packing big sunnies is essential for the Sunshine State to protect your eyes, add style to your look, and save your life early mornings after a late night out in Miami Beach. Choose a neutral pair and they will go with everything you’ve packed.
Yes, you’ll see a few women sporting heels poolside. But, my relaxed choice for stylish & comfortable shoes in the sun? Havaianas flip flops which are perfect for the pool, beach, or boardwalk. This black, white, & neon pink pair seems made for Miami Beach.
Protect yourself & prevent lobster red tourist skin by spraying on Supergoop! 3 oz. SPF 30 Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist with Vitamin C every 80 minutes. It’s travel-sized, water-resistant, easily applied, and oxybenzone-free. Available at arrivechic.com.
A chic cover-up will carry you through see-and-be-seen hotel lobbies, poolside lunches, and happy hour. The best cover-ups easily double as dresses. Sweep up your hair and add great earrings and you’ll be cocktail-ready in no time.
Evian Facial Spray
Almost year round, it’s hot in Miami Beach. Keep your cool by packing an Evian facial spray in your bag. The 1.7 fl. oz. travel size mist sets make-up, removes perspiration, and even rehydrates your skin mid-flight.
A cute beach bag will complete your vacation look. Use it as your carry-on bag on the flight into MIA or choose one that packs flat in your luggage. One of my favorites is the big & bright Classic Field Bag by Utility Canvas.
3oz. Bath Products
Since nightlife starts late in Miami Beach, pack your favorite 3 oz. beauty products and treat yourself to extra bath time after a sun-filled day. Better yet, stay at the Marriott Stanton South Beach and use their complementary Thann Thai skincare products made with delish nutmeg, tangerine, and orange essential oils.
A Sexy Dress & Sky High Killer Heels 305 women dress to impress so packing essentials include your sexiest dress and sky high killer heels for nightlife. Think skin-baring and model tall and you’ll fit right in. Check out Clover Canyon bodycon dresses and Black Peep-Toe Booties by Carvela Kurt Geiger.
A Flowy Day Dress & Cool Flat Sandals
Remember, it’s warm here and after squeezing into your sexy look from last night, a flowy dress will be heaven sent over pancakes and a bloody at brunch. Packing cool flat sandals will also help your feet recover quickly from dancing in those killer heels all night.
