A Weekend in Miami....

I got an exciting email this past week from Kendra Thornton (below), Travel Expert featured on Fox, The Nate Berkus Show and countless others! It was a Blogger Challenge of sorts! Here are the details.....
My name is Kendra Thornton, and I'm a travel expert who has been featured on television shows like Tyra Banks and Nate Berkus. I regularly share my tips on planning, packing, and numerous other aspects of travel, and am thrilled to be starting a new project on fashion related to travel. I love you individual sense of style and would like to invite you to participate in the 'Kendra's Night Out' Challenge"! 

The Challenge: 
I am heading to Miami, Florida in a few weeks with my husband. I am a mother to three wonderful children and am in need of some trendy fashion guidance! I'm inviting you to help me put together a wardrobe that will complement my travel plans. My husband and I are spending the weekend at The Biltmore estate Miami and I will need a chic ensemble for day and evening looks.
The Biltmore Miami is a place that has Welcomed Politicians to Celebrities and it offers would class luxury! So of course, I need to give Kendra inspiration for world class style!!!

This Inspiration Board covers it all....... a Chic outfit for Golf, Hot Miami Sun Swimwear plus 3 dresses to either shop the day away or have a hot dinner date with your husband!! Even better all the pieces have price points for any budget!!!
Now, I just need to go on this trip huh???

1 Piece you need this season.....

Stop what your doing............. I HAVE to tell you that if you are going to buy anything to wear in the next week you have to buy this skirt!!! This is the BEST purchase I have made all year and the ways I can wear this are too many to count!!!! This is the J Crew Sunburst Skirt in Navy that is ON SALE!!! I will say that you will want to wear this higher up on your waist so I went down a size when I ordered  mine and it fits perfect! In fact I am considering buying it in another size so in case I change sizes I am covered!


item a0632
$118.00 now $69.99
Extra 30% off with code HISUMMER

BUY IT HERE!!!!!!!

I have pictured 3 ways to wear this skirt to work so far................
This skirt is so cute with a graphic tee and cute heels for work but this would work just as good with flats for a cute weekend outfit!!! For cool Summer nights throw on a Jean Jacket and that would look so cute paired with this skirt!
 I also paired this skirt with a cute gingham button down from Loft and it was one of my favorite outfits so far!!!!

If you buy this skirt and wear it I would love to see how you styled this.......tag me on Instagram!!!! Happy Shopping!
ps- I only wish J Crew was paying me for this! hahahaha!!!
