The boyfriend and I recently got back from a wonderful long weekend in Miami. I was surprised by how many questions I fielded from friends and co-workers once we returned on where to eat, what to wear and where to have drinks with the beautiful people. Here’s my guide to the ultimate Miami long weekend, complete with outfit choices for each event.
Where to Stay: we stayed at the Fontainebleau Hotel this past weekend and I would recommend it in a heartbeat. The hotel is beautiful and has gorgeous pools, a number of great restaurants, beach cabanas and a wonderful spa. Our days consisted of lounging by the pool with drinks in hand listening to the DJ spinning poolside and making our way to the beach.
What you’ll need during the day: sunscreen, cute bikinis, rompers (like the one pictured above), a floppy hat and maxi dresses.
Where to Eat: for dinners, we picked three amazing places, all with a different type of cuisine.
Hakkasan in the Fontainebleau hotel has a very sexy feel. Dark furniture, nice lighting, great cocktails and Thai food. You’ll want to wear something sleek and sexy, like this Camisole dress from Asos, above. Pair this dress with some sky-high Louboutins or Valentino’s and you’ll fit right in.
After, go for drinks at Liv in the Fontainebleau.
We had the most delicious meal at Ola in the Sanctuary Hotel. This restaurant had wonderful Cuban and Spanish cuisine and is in a lovely art-deco hotel. The restaurant is more casual than Hakkasan and has a very Boho-chic feel to it. Look for dresses that are light and airy, maybe an embroidered maxi dress or this partly sheer dress above from Free People.
After, go for drinks at the gorgeous Delano hotel outdoors by its pool.
Our last dinner was at Nobu Miami, which is much like the New York restaurant. Wear a bodycon dress for this Japanese restaurant. This Asos cutout dress with a bodycon shape is a perfect look and it’s just $53.
After, go for drinks at the Shore Club in a great outdoor space that looks like it was dreamed up by Alice in Wonderland.
Finally, before you head to the airport on Sunday, be sure to have brunch at the Soho Beach Club, which is just next to the Fontainebleau. This gorgeous hotel has a buffet brunch in a truly beautiful, rustic setting. Feast on omelettes, truffled deviled eggs, Mac and cheese and tons of other goodies. Wear this great silk romper from Tigerlily.
