"No Lifeguard On Duty"
The beach was a daily thing for us. Every two streets or so, there would be a cute lifeguard shack on the beach. Each designed and colored differently. The closest one to us was this pink one that I instantly fell in love with. The mix of pink and yellow reminds me of a sorbet on a summer day (Oh, how much I wish it was the summer time right now). 

For this outfit, I kept it a little more quiet and basic. Miami can get a little loud and overwhelming sometimes, and perhaps it's better to just go for something a little more simplistic. If you know me, I love simplistic. I can keep it black and white all day, any day. A monochromatic outfit in New York just looks depressing and overplayed, but it's another story in Miami - just look at how colorful everything is! My dress from Aritzia is a little bit more on the pricier side, but I  thought it would be the perfect dress from summer and for traveling. I instantly fell in love with all the the small details on the dress, from the crochet on the sleeves to the tasseled waist-tie. Also, this dress is undoubtedly the easiest dress to travel with because of its natural wrinkled fabric that also gives an effortlessly casual vibe. 

I kept my accessories simple with a gold necklace from J.Crew. The unevenly stacked gold squares of the necklace give a right and sturdy texture to an otherwise quaint necklace. I usually only have shades on to keep my hair out of my face, but they come to good use when the sun's strong rays are beaming in your eyes.

Miami would have not been the same without her. Heck, I wouldn't have went to Miami if it wasn't for her. Love this girl to bits. 

Happy Thursday, everyone!
