Miami: Wynwood Walls




An area of town just west of Midtown Miami, the Wynwood Walls area is an odd place. It’s very industrial, littered with wholesale clothing factories, run down residential homes, upscale furniture boutiques, and houses a little oasis of a cafe called Panther Coffee.

But amid all this the buildings themselves create a stunning living art gallery.  Every wall is a canvas, every door houses potential, and nothing is off limit.

It’s a beautiful place to wander about.

Miami Outfit: Travelling Between Climates





Kimono/Cardigan – Arnhem  //  Queen top – F21  //  Shorts – Spell Designs  //  Boots – DIYed myself  //  Necklace – Vanessa Mooney via ThreadSence

The Miami outfit posts are coming in now.  Monday’s walk through Coconut Grove and along the waterfront was glorious. And I couldn’t resist changing into shorts at the first opportunity.  These Spell shorts are fabulous. I sized up in them just a touch because I wanted the extra length in the bum. As in, I wanted my bum fully covered when I was walking.

This Arnhem maxi cardigan was definitely perfect in the day to protect from the sun, and in the evening to protect from the cooler breeze. Plus, it stole the show everywhere I went.  People were constantly remarking on it.

I wore this while travelling from Toronto with Jeans.  It provided enough warmth in the snowy weather, and then with a quick switch out to the shorts was perfect in the higher temperatures of Miami.  When I’m travelling like this I like to think about what will easily work with both climates so that you’re comfortable and not freezing or boiling on one end.

Side note: it also makes the perfect thing to wear when your breezing through the hotel on the way to the pool and back.

Miami: Espanola Way and Beach


Wandering through Espanola Way and Lincoln Road, we could only resist the pull of the beach for so long. Of course, that’s where we headed and I went straight into the waves. The water was deliciously warm.
What I loved was the woman who started feeding the seagulls and became completely surrounded by them as a result.

Miami Photos: Coconut Grove area

This was the view from the hotel room I was lucky enough to stay in the last few days.  It was a business trip that was heaven sent, as the location was sunny Miami and the work to play ratio was delightful.

The first stop after settling in was Coconut Grove.  We wandered around the shops and down Coco Walk.

The Art Deco architecture mixed with the Spanish influence was to die for, and I certainly was more than tempted to just unpack for good.

Wandering around the area and finally making the trek home via the waterfront, and lovely residential areas was perfect.  The sun and the heat were glorious.  Such a blissful moment, where I could feel my body relax from months of shivering.

This was by far the coolest house on the walk home.

And this photo sums up the feelings of the entire day for me.

 Outfit photos from Miami go live starting Monday.
