Our Miami Vaca (photo overload)

Good Morning! We are back from Miami, and I have to admit, I'm feeling a little lot sad about it. It was such an amazing for the books! Miami is where my husband and I met, and got engaged, so it holds a special place in my heart.

We stayed at the Mondrian South Beach - our favorite spot. I like the ocean, but I think the view of the bay is much more interesting...the view from the pool (and the rooms) is of Star Island, and downtown Miami, plus you get to watch the gorgeous sunset every night! The rooms at this hotel are much larger than others in South Beach as well (another plus while traveling with a baby, or anyone really). 

If you ever been to Miami, you know its HOT - so with a baby, a cabana is key. It's amazing how much cooler it is in the shade...not to mention it's basically a gigantic baby bed. ;) This was the perfect space for Sophia to spread out and relax, nap, etc.

The kitchenette in our room was perfect for washing bottles, and other baby feeding necessities.

My favorite restaurant in Miami is Casa Tua - a must if you plan to visit. We had dinner here after we got engaged, and I couldn't wait to return. The setting is so intimate, you feel like you're in someone's back yard... not to mention the food is delicioso! 

Prime One Twelve is another great restaurant, but it's extremely busy all.of.the.time. We had a great meal here, and luckily got table outside, but steer clear if you want to avoid a crowd!

 At dinner, my husband surprised me with matching cuffs - we spotted them while we were shopping earlier that day, and he snuck back to buy them without me knowing! He likes surprises, but I usually figure them out...not this time.

Remember my printed pants from H&M? I bought the matching blouse, and transformed the pants into a jumpsuit (look). This was my favorite look of the trip - very Miami.

The rain in Mimai is crazy, we had one afternoon (a couple hours) of downpour central. Luckily, we were shopping at the time, but on the way back to the hotel, I felt like we were on a canal tour (by boat). 20 minutes later, the sun was out, and the pool was packed. The streets were dry by the time we went out for dinner that night - crazy.

Sophia loved the beach. Coverup: Victoria's Secret/Head Scarf: Missoni/Sunglasses: Ray Ban

The Delano is also a fun hotel right on the beach. We spent an afternoon there, and enjoyed a drink (or two) after dinner at Casa Tua.
