CanadianPrep Does South Beach

It may be nearing the end of August, but this gal is just now enjoying her first official vacation of the year. And let me tell y'all, it has been a LONG time coming.  I've endured countless all-nighters, several occurrences of "oh can you just do this one thing for me... for tomorrow," and far too many moments of my brain aimlessly drifting into thoughts of lands far far away.

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  

What are your beach essentials?



  1. I love these beach items, especially that one piece swimsuit from J Crew! It's to die for :)


  2. An ice cold beer and the latest issue of SportsBusiness Journal are musts for me!

    1. I just left yesterday! I should be back over the winter holidays though. If you have any free time at all... and find yourself near SoBe, let me know! Actually, I managed to use public transportation this last trip pretty easily, so can make my way around that way as well.
