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。

Travel In Style

Set aside the prejudice of Kardashian family, starlet Kendall Jenner’s fashion taste is worth to take note. These two airport outfits of her achieved that rare combination of comfort and style. She also wowed us for effortlessly taking the simple T-shirt & jeans combo to another level by changing outerwear and accessories.

In Chinese: 撇开颇具争议性的卡戴珊家族史,冉冉升起的新星肯达尔·詹娜(Kendall Jenner)的时尚品味值得我们点赞,比如上面的这两个机场的造型,随性、舒适又有型。T恤衫和牛仔裤是最常见也最实用的搭配了,通过变换外套和配饰(比如不同风格的鞋子和包包),这个简单组合就可以变化出数不清的造型,适应不同场合。
