Just when I thought I couldn’t outweigh my last overweight suitcase, I managed to hit a new benchmark. On my return flight to Miami, my checked bag was a whopping 12 pounds overweight. So maybe you shouldn’t take packing advice from me, but hey, you’re here. You might as well stick around. You’ll soon see that the outfits I packed for this trip were well worth an overweight suitcase.
Although I only spent four days in Miami, I managed to wear six different bikinis. I attend Paraiso’s Miami Swim Week, and I was so inspired by all of the looks I saw walking down the runway that I decided to apply them to my own wardrobe. When I finally took a break from the bikinis and put real clothes on, the trend that I was most excited to wear was the maxi dress. It was such a great fit for the occasions that I attended, so you’ll find many scattered throughout this story. Shop the eight outfits I wore that you have to copy on your next vacation below.
