Another Swim Week for the books.
As I’m sure you saw on my Instagram and other blogger’s social accounts, Miami Swim Week took place a couple weeks ago. I went with my Foray Collective girls @kaitlynn_carter, @littleblackboots, @the_salty_blonde, @jessimalay, @blankinerary, @evelina, @naila, and @racquenatasha, and it was too much fun as always!
It was my FIFTH Swim Week in a row so I’m officially in veteran territory. Miami is one of my favorite places—the mix of city and beach is what I feel like I’m a hybrid of, and it’s hard not to fall in love with the energy there.
We stayed at the 1 Hotel South Beach which I’m obsessed with. Everything from the modern beach décor, to the clean, minimalist aesthetic matches my style perfectly and is what my décor dreams are made of.
The weekend was crazy busy, but in the best way. Friday we hosted a brunch with Kendra Scott Jewelry at our hotel. After that, we checked out the Bollare gifting hub in the Penthouse of the 1 Hotel. The suite had 360-degree windows, so as you can imagine, the views of the skyline + turquoise water were ahhhmazing! They had gifting racks from a few of my favorite brands like Alo Yoga, SUNDAY SOMEWHERE, and Vitamin A Swim. There was also a refreshment bar with coconut waters and sake-soaked pineapple skewers which is the best way to eat fruit, right?! Best of all, there was a beauty lounge upstairs where you could get VIP makeup, nail, and hair treatments. Basically the ultimate beachy dream scenario.
Saturday we hosted an event at Cecconi’s @ Soho House with bikini.com and Be Social PR. That was a blast!
And let’s not forget about the main reason we were all there…swimwear! We went to a bunch of shows including Tori Praver, VIX, For Love & Lemons (with an adorable French-girl theme), and Frankies Bikinis. Foray co-hosted the Indah show at the W hotel which was my personal favorite! We also attended the Mikoh cocktail party on the 1 rooftop where I got to catch up with designers Oleema and Kalani about their line.
It’s always sad to say goodbye to Miami, and I’m already looking forward to my Swim Week #6 in 2017!
