You can bet that I'll be enjoying every moment darkening my tan (or sunburn) on the sandy beaches, getting lost in the pages of my books (or September issues), and sipping on delicious fruit smoothies (or Shake Shack peanut butter shakes.... or frozen margaritas).
And of course you won't catch me out-and-about in the tie-dye sarongs and "I heart SoBe" t-shirts found in every beach shop lining Ocean drive. Nor the gaudy glamorous suits and high-heeled sandals that have made an appearance or two on the infamous Miami Kardashians. I may stick out like a sore thumb, but my preppy ways follow me everywhere I go.
Here are my South Beach vacation essentials:
Kate Spade grosgrain sunhat (similar) | Vineyard Vines tote | J Crew seersucker suit | Essie polish in Tart Deco | J. Crew white linen skirt | Joe Fresh gingham button-down | Lilly Pulitzer McKim sandals | Ray Ban New Wayfarers
