Miami in Color with M Missoni

My colorful, mid-week getaway to paradise with M Missoni & some amazing gals.

South Beach, Miami has been a favorite city of mine since the first time I stepped onto the beautiful white sand beaches and felt the warm sun on my skin. Tropical and not too far from Los Angeles, when I got the invitation to spend a week there with M Missoni, I didn't think twice before saying yes!

When I arrived at the beautiful villa on Sunset Island that we were staying in, I found my favorite pieces from the new collection waiting for me, it was a dream! Even though we all work in the same field, the other girls who were all so creative and different from myself, it was so refreshing.

We relaxed the first evening and got to know each other while watching the Floridian sunset. The next morning we were picked up and taken to the M Missoni store in the Aventura Mall where we were treated to shopping and brunch in the store! I wanted everything all the clothing! Each piece was so beautifully constructed and unique, I couldn't help but choose both a bag and a dress!

After brunch, we went to the Nautilus in South Beach for a beach side lunch and some time to soak up the sun! It was hot and humid but we had that nice seaside breeze which made it perfectly bearable!

Once we had enough sun, we headed back to the house to chill and shower, and then we went to the Miami Beach Edition, one of my favorite hotels,  for dinner, bowling, and ice skating! It was a perfect day and epic night!

 On our last day, we woke up to do mediation, which I loved, and then sat down to enjoy a gorgeous colorful and healthy breakfast by Addy of Vibrant and Pure.  Is is possible for things to taste and look as good as they are?! Because if so, this was one of those times! I loved her take on an avocado toast and I got to try her "Unicorn Toast,"check out her Instagram to see what I'm talking about @VibrantandPure.

I then got ready to hit the beach with Veronica, while the rest of the girls stayed back and chilled at the house. It was crazy how many people were on the beach on a Wednesday at 11AM in April! We took some photos and found the American flag lifeguard stand she had been hoping to find! All the lifeguard stands were painted pretty colors and some even had cool designs! Seriously everything this trip was colorful and aligned perfectly with M Missoni's summer collection!

Just around 4PM a yacht came to pick us up from our dock, (PS: just re-read that four times and had to remind myself that yes, this is real life) and take us around the marina and bay for a sunset cruise. I had so much fun laughing and sharing cheese plates with all of the girls! We docked at Seaspice to eat an amazing seafood dinner. My favorite was the Coconut Salmon Ceviche and the Tres Leches cake!
