mbfw swim: the recap

Phew. After the last 2 weeks, that’s all I can say! As many of you know, my wedding was this past weekend–and prior to that, it was Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim on Miami Beach. I have never been more relaxed to see August 1! While wedding photos will be around soon enough, I wanted to flash back and share some more of my experience (people who follow me on Instagram already got a peek!).

I did so many amazing and incredible things down here for swim week, I am so grateful to all the people who were kind enough to invite me to this and that. The week started off big with stops at the Soho House for Cosmo en Espanol’s Summer Splash and Miami Magazine’s Splashion event at LIV. I had the pleasure of attending a fab luncheon at Hakkasan in the Fountainebleu with beauty and health experts on Thursday, followed by a Trina Turk BBQ and Style Saves Fashion Show at night. Friday was the Lifestyle Retreat Lounge, Blogger Night Out, dinner at BLT Steak and an intimate and fab party at the Webster for Vogue magazine & Clarins skincare. Cia.Maritima, Red Carter, and Mara Hoffman all had shows to die for and Zimmermann had an intimate cocktail party which I hit after ping pong at the Standard (with Wildfox & the Webster) and before the La Perla showing at Soho Beach House. Honestly it probably sounds like I’m rambling on and on but these events were only the beginning. Not to mention I probably had a lifetime’s worth of delicious Grey Goose cocktails and Moet Ice. I know, I know, #firstworldproblems. Now, for some visuals:

From top to bottom, L to R: Chillin on Sobe before BNO; car service to the Fountainbleu with the coolest driver, Napoleon; posing with my competition (iSpyDIY, RiaMichelle, and KellysKloset); Chanel tech accessories at the Webster; post-Splashion partying to Three Loco with Celia at LIV; the cutest and most adorable Cia.Maritima floral ruffled bikini; the step & repeat with LePrettyStellar, CaptureFashion and RiaMichelle; finding my perfect pair of shades with the help of Ditto; jagged suits from Australia at the Zimmermann presentation.

Also worth mentioning… to die for alcoholic cupcakes from Sweet & Tipsy at the Lifestyle Retreat Lounge & the fabulous girls from Blo who gave me a fishtail within minutes! Besos!! xoxo
