August is really the last time one can jump on a plane for a spontaneous travel weekend before the back-to-school mentality of fall hits (not to mention Fashion Week). We’ve been eyeing some travel websites and there are some serious deals going on right now people! After scoping out an option for a quick getaway down to Miami, we could barely contain ourselves as visions of palm trees, clear blue water and margaritas spun through our heads.
Alas, we aren’t able to make the trip this round, but here are a list of items we’d throw into our bags if we were lucky enough to head South. Read on to see our top picks!
If you're lucky enough to be heading down to Miami for a quick trip this summer, be sure to throw some of these essentials in your bag!
If you ask us, dressing for a night out in Miami screams for a major neon moment. Here, we love the flirty silhouette of the dress to balance the bright color.
Aqua Floyd Dress Structured Skater With Metal Section Belt, $190.56, at Asos
We're loving this teeny bikini -- it's colorful and small enough that you won't get any pesky tan lines.
Luli Fama's Dulce Tormento (Ballet Halter Top), $80, at Everything But Water
We're pretty sure these sunglasses should only be worn in Miami.
Miu Miu Oversized Layered Star Sunglasses, $335, at Bloomingdale's
From a chillier night on the beach or a air-conditioned plane, we're loving this jumpsuit for an alternative option to a mini-skirt.
Wide-Leg Jumpsuit, $89.90, at Zara
When in Miami, we follow the rule 'anything worth doing is worth overdoing.' Why not go for it and carry a neon bag with a bright colored dress?
Villa Woven Tote, $58, at Nasty Gal
All heels and wedges should be sky high once you step foot in Miami (if you ask us). Here, we love the deep teal color of this stacked wedge, which is perfect for cutting some serious rug.
Dolce Vita Orla, $189, at Revolve Clothing
You'll probably be carrying a lot of bright colors, prints and party dresses for your excursion down to Miami. We love this needlework weekender bag that is a bit more on the subdued side.
Fossil Handbag, Vintage Re-Issue Fabric Weekender, $278, at Macy's
Obviously a beach read is an absolute must for your lounging poolside and also on the plane. Catch up on this top selling book that's giving Hunger Games a run for its money.
