Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2014

Tags

Early last Friday morning I was starting my journey to what would-be a mind-blowing experience. Of course, I couldn’t find any Voss water anywhere at the airport…BUT, I found a Lette Macarons from Beverly Hills stand at our gate, so I bought a whole box and then realized I never ate even one of them the entire trip. Actually, I left them in the refrigerator in our hotel and completely forgot about them. Anyways, that’s besides the point. Before we left, I was preparing myself for extreme humidity, high temperatures, and long hours of work. I personally needed a legitimate getaway, so I knew I would enjoy myself on the trip, but I never thought I would fall in love with Miami like I did! Below is a quick glimpse of some of my adventures with Melissa in South Beach, and some videos of my favorite fashion shows! The shows include sneak peaks on trends to come for later this year and for early 2015! Check out Sundance Beach’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week blog for my photos from the L*Space, Mikoh, Rip Curl, Mara Hoffman, Maaji, Luli Fama, Lolli, Acacia, Aguaclara, Aquarella, Mia Marcelle, Toxic Sadie, Minimale Animale, and Indah.

All in all, Miami was amazing. I want to go back as soon as possible for an actual relaxing vacation! If I were given the choice to make a list of 100 top places I would want to go, I never would have stuck Miami on that list prior to my trip. Now, it would be on that list. The water is beautifully aqua, the sand is white, the palm trees are vibrantly green with no traces of brown leaves, the streets are clean, the people are friendly, the buildings are historically modern (I know, that sounds like an oxymoron), the history has been preserved, the font theme throughout the city feels vintage, the Cuban food is amazing, the cars are glamorous, the latin culture is profound, and the accents are strong.

iVIVA MIAMI!

RVCA Told Secrets Dress

Tags

,

I always get nervous to wear prints on clothing, but its much more comfortable for me when its a delicate and subtle print. The RVCA Told Secrets Dress proved itself as one of the top summer 2014 dresses, and I understand why. IT’S COMFORTABLE and “air-y!” Its a woven dress with a v-neckline at the front and pin tuck pleats at the chest that create fullness through the body. The dress has spaghetti straps that extend from the front, lace up, and tie at the low v-neckline at the back.

I accented this “suburnt” colored dress with black. I love my black Element hat, so I always find any excuse to wear it. Black hat, black booties, it just makes sense and feels right!

Space 46 Tulle Skirt

Tags

,

“Any day is a good day for a tulle skirt.” Tulle skirts are everywhere lately…Pinterest, Instagram, Blogs, E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E and I’m fully in love with the trend. We must never forget who started this fabulous trend though. We all owe a round of applause to Miss Carrie Bradshaw–the originator and tulle skirt trend setter. We will never, or should never, forget the Sex and the City intro where the taxi cab splashes Carrie in the famous streets of New York in her beautiful white tulle skirt paired with a simple pink tank top. Fashion. Icon.

I truly believe every girl should have a tulle skirt hanging in her closet. I paired my tulle skirt from Space 46 with a fun crop top from Brandy Melville and some layered pearls. Frolicking through tall weeds probably isn’t the BEST way to utilize this fabulous skirt, but its really not surprising that I would walk through this brush in a skirt. Typical day, for me. I’m already debating which other color to grab next! Hopefully I’ll have room in my closet…

Lauren Conrad

Tags

,

So, I don’t know if you’ve ever tried on any pieces from Lauren Conrad’s collection, but I guarantee you’ll be hooked once you do! I got this dress over a year ago and still wear it more than any other dress I have hanging in my closet. Navy is one of those colors that can be worn any season of the year and it will be considered completely acceptable. Pair it with fun wedges, or your favorite ballet flats, and you’ll be the most adorable lady while walking on the pier or down the boulevard. Sometimes I will throw on a long single strand of pearls, but I also just like wearing it with a simple and delicate gold necklace as well. However you decide to wear it this summer, make sure to throw on some sunscreen and bring a hat with you to protect yourself from the hot sun!
