Kendra's Miami Fashion Challenge

So you guys know I love a good challenge, right? I was honored to be asked to participate in a challenge to help Kendra Thornton get dressed for a trip to Miami. Kendra shares her tips planning, packing and numerous other items related to travel and has made many guest appearances on television shows like The Nate Berkus Show and Tyra Banks. Read below to see more on Kendra and what she was looking for! 

I need help in choosing clothes that are appropriate for South beach! All of my clothes seem too old and outdated. We are staying at one of Miami’s top hotels, the Biltmore Miami Coral Gables Estate. We found this gem after reading reviews on this incredible social media travel website gogobot. I want my look to be timeless and trendy for my stay at this classy South beach estate.
The Biltmore originally opened back in 1926. Since that time, it has served people in the United States as well as the world. I am looking forward to spending some personal time together by visiting the fabulous Palme d’or. This restaurant is right on the Biltmore Estate. Both of us like fine dining, and this facility has excellent food that both of us will enjoy. Another restaurant that sounds intriguing to me is the 19th Hole Bar and Grill. I'm sure we will get to experience some wonderful cuisine while in Miami but its the exploring that I am most excited about. I want to walk all around south beach! A relaxing cocktail with my husband on the beach sounds so dreamy. For this trip I would like two new looks. One look for a casual day and the other for a night out on the town. Clothes that compliment me can create a confidence that I need wherever we go. I am so excited to see the looks you choose for my Miami trip!


So that's what I was working with and here's what I came up with for the casual day look: 

I love love love this look! I think the dress is perfect for a day sightseeing and having a nice cocktail! I imagine myself walking around Miami browsing in boutiques and having fabulous lunches. I added a cute cross body so she can keep her hands free while checking the racks and added a straw floppy hat just in case she ends up at the beach and needs a little more coverage. If you have been following me for long, you know I love color. I thought the multi color earrings went perfect with the beaded necklace. Tone it down with some golden bangles or even add some additional bangles for more whimsy. Let's not forget the shoes! If you're out walking around, you will definitely want something comfy. Why not go for a little gladiator sandal? The sandals fit the theme beautifully! All in all, I love this look and I think Kendra will too! 

Next up is a beautiful look for evening: 

I love the color, cut and fabric of this beautiful dress! It is simple yet so elegant and will be perfect for a nice dinner out on the town. I chose beautiful rose gold accessories that will go perfectly with this dress. And the clutch! Can we talk about it? Beautiful embroidery and metallics! Add a nude shoe and you're good to go! 

I am loving both of the looks that I selected for Kendra! What a great trip that she has planned! I'm certain that she will be both comfortable and confident in both of these outfits as she is relaxing and having fun. 

Thanks for reading and following along with me!
