Cobalt Blue in Miami Beach

I've been itching to get away from NYC and unwind for a couple of days for the past few months. Winter and work and stress and motherhood'll do that to ya. I didn't want to take off from work so I've been waiting for a long weekend (like this one) to get away. Between the cash flow from my day job and freelancing gigs, I was able to afford a plane ticket without breaking the bank. But not a hotel room. So I stayed with my very good friend (who also happens to be my old college roommate), T, who now lives in Miami Beach. Like, right across the street from the beach. Like, thisclose to water and sand and Heaven on Earth.

While I'm still in shock that I was just wearing tank tops, flip flops, and a mini-dress, and now I'm back to a scarf and a coat, I am very happy to have gotten away. I so needed that.

Since purchasing them a couple months ago, I've been living for these American Eagle cobalt blue pants. Naturally, I had to bring them to Miami. I paired it with a crisp white H&M tank with writings in pink and black. I finished off this cool and chic look with sparkly gold thong sandals from Aldo's.

To hit the beach on Day 2, I wore my spandex mini-dress from H&M that hugs all the right places and spaces. The dress features a scoop neck and cap sleeves (not shown) and can be paired with anything for a fun and flirty look. Since it was a bit windy, I paired it with my denim button down shirt from, also from H&M. Classic.

Look at those clear skies and that beautiful water... how many more weeks until Summer?
