Travel Diary: Miami

Miami is one of my favorite cities to visit. It’s an easy/affordable flight from New York City, which makes it the perfect getaway. The past few times I’ve visited Miami, my focus was beach, beach, pool, beach. But when I went to Miami last month my focus was completely different. I was in Miami for 24 hours for a layover during my trip to Cuba. So instead of focusing on the beach, I decided to spend the day exploring Miami’s Wynwood Art District.

Today I’m adding another product to my list of chub rub fighters: Bandelettes! Are you the type of person who wears shorts under her dresses?
