Where to Go and What to Wear in Miami

When my son turned 9 months, a much-needed family vacation is at the top our agenda. No better place to relax as a family than Miami. With a baby, we can’t plan too much. Below are the 5 places we went during our 7-day stay, and outfit ideas for you in case you are thinking of a beach vacation too.

Besides playing and shopping, another essential part of our trip is enjoying some famous local dishes. Here are the restaurants we hung out during our vacation: 1. Versailles, a Cuban restaurant. I want to have breakfast there every day! 2. Michael’s Genuine, the best food I had my whole trip! The ribs and wings are worth the wait, let alone the street that is full of luxury stores like Hermès, Céline and Christian Louboutin to digest after the big meal (sadly, most stores close at 7pm); 3. El Siboney. The mouthwatering Paella Valenciana was such a treat for us after a long day’s drive! 4. Joe’s Stone Crab, try the key lime pie, please! 5. Tropical Chinese. The authentic flavors satisfied my Chinese stomach! Last but not the least, don’t forget to stop by Zodiac Café at Neiman Marcus when shopping at Bal Harbour, my favorites are popover and Mandarin orange soufflé!

BTW, be sure to pack insect repellents! I’m a mosquito magnet and there are lots of mosquitoes there!

In Chinese: 怀孕期间都没怎么出去玩,现在儿子九个多月,终于可以好好出去放松一下了。迈阿密海滩一向是度假首选。这次7天的假期还是选了那里。宝宝还小,我们也没有安排太多活动,7天的假期里去了这5个地方,如果你也有去海滩城市度假的计划,下面有一些着装建议。

除了玩和购物外,吃也是我们这次行程的重要部分。这里有几个我觉得很不错的餐厅和特色菜式,下次你有机会去迈阿密可以作为参考:1. Versailles, 一家非常有特色和口碑的古巴餐厅,性价比超高,早餐首选!2. Michael’s Genuine, 我此次行程最爱的餐厅。入口即化的肋肉和鸡翅你一定要亲口尝尝。那条街上还有爱马仕、赛琳等很多奢侈品店可以逛,不过遗憾的是大部分晚上7点就关门了。3. El Siboney. 量大味美的西班牙海鲜炒饭是我们开了几个小时车最好的犒劳!4. Joe’s Stone Crab, 柠檬派!柠檬派!5. Tropical Chinese,中文名字是大利餐厅,广东早茶非常地道。另外,如果你去当地有名的购物中心Bal Harbour 血拼的话,还可去尼曼的茶餐厅小憩一下,酥皮面包和甜橙蛋糕爱吃西点的人一定不能错过。

对了,一定要准备防蚊虫的喷雾或电仪,迈阿密蚊子很多。

All Black Chic

Having a 4 month-old son, I barely have time to get dressed. No-brainer black ensemble is my go-to. How to spicy it up, avoid that tired-mommy look? Two words: details and accessories.

As showed on Heidi Klum above, the combination of denim/leather on her pants, the side buttons on her boots, the fur collar on her coat make the outfits anything but boring. Trendy sunglasses, scarlet lips and hot It bags add the right amount of glam.

These outfits are great for any age,especially handy for busy moms. Change the leather pants with straight-leg trousers or a pencil skirt, you can wear these to the office too.

In Chinese: 当了妈妈后,根本没有时间考虑每天穿什么。一身黑最简单,又不怕脏。但是怎么穿出辣妈味呢?

两个关键词:细节和配饰。比如Heidi Klum这两身造型里牛仔拼接的皮裤侧边有排扣设计的踝靴、白色皮草领的大衣等让原本普通的黑色单品潮味十足。在配饰上,眩光镜片精致的红唇、或大热的设计师手包等都能瞬间让普通的搭配脱颖而出。

这两个造型不分年龄,而且尤其适合忙碌的妈妈们。把皮裤换成西装裤或铅笔裙,就能穿去办公室了。

Leather Chic: Trendy Prints & Edgy Accessories

Run out of ideas for styling your black pieces? Miranda Kerr & Olivia Palermo wowed us again by spicing up their basic black pieces with hottest trends & to-die-for accessories. Here is how:

Add one trendy, eye-catching print to break up a dark ensemble. The tartan jacket on Miranda Kerr echoes the punk trend but in a more sophisticated way while the marble printed top on Olivia Palermo introducing the next hottest pattern spotted on the latest runway.

Use accessories to update basic black pieces while giving them different characters: The Isabel Marant booties and classic quilted leather tote add an edgy yet sexy vibe to Miranda Kerr’s outfit; A camouflage tassel pump and studded white bag add unexpected juxtaposition to Olivia Palermo’s city chic look.

Play with textures: mix elegant tweed with tough leather, juxtapose delicate silk against chunky knit or heavy metal. Be creative and have fun!

黑色的单品我们每年秋冬都会穿,这一季怎么穿出新鲜、时尚感又不失我们自己的风格?Miranda Kerr 和Olivia Palermo最近在巴黎时装周期间的这两个糅合了最新潮流趋势的造型能给我们一些灵感:

在基本的黑色look中引入一两个最新的图案打破黑色的沉闷感。Miranda Kerr身上的呢格纹是经典的庞克元素,这一季设计师赋予了庞克风精良的都市感。Olivia Palermo所穿的大理石图案也将是下一季的热捧。

用配饰给经典款的黑色单品加入更多当季的元素,也能方便快速地变换风格。Miranda Kerr所穿的目前最受追捧的来自Isabel Marant的尖头拼接踝靴和香奈儿包呼应了皮裤和丝袜搭配的酷帅和性感;Olivia Palermo的迷彩流苏高跟鞋和铆钉包也使原本优雅的look更具时尚和个性。

混搭不同的材质也能让整身暗色调的搭配更富层次感,比如用优雅的粗呢外套去搭配酷帅的皮裤或二手的破洞牛仔装,用精致的丝缎或蕾丝搭配宽松的针织衫或铆钉装饰的庞克风配件等。
