What To Pack For Miami…Because This Is Not Miami!

Isn’t it crazy how time creeps up on us?  It’s already time to pack our bags and hit the beaches, discos, day clubs, and shops in the warmest city in the U.S. right now…Miami!  Because, let’s face it, “this…is not…MIAMI!”, so we’ll be flying there for a bit of a warm weekend break away from the drab of winter weather approaching.  Actually, we wont be flying there, but some of you are and will be!  We were recently asked by one of our readers,

I’m going to Miami in four days help! What should I take?

and that got us thinking. It’s already jetset season!  OMG! So, here it is – the packing recommendations we suggested to our jetset lady friend, just this week. You’ll find a complete packing list that covers what to wear anywhere from the pool or beach, lunch with the ladies, day out shopping, dinners in the evening, to the discos late-night, and also what to wear for traveling in style and comfort through the airport.

What To Pack For A Weekend In Miami: Fall/Winter Edition

During October and November, weather in Miami is mid to high 80’s.  The forecast always shows scattered thunderstorms, but we wouldn’t worry about that, there’s really no rain to speak of in Miami – this rain will pass in 1 hour (normally) –  Just sun!

In general, Miami is very flamboyant – bright colors, prints, and designer items are so necessary!  Make sure not to overpack!  Just bring the necessities. Much less stress! Go w/nails painted – neon colors for Miami.  

Have fun! Let us know if you have any questions and feel free to send over pics! Good luck!!!
