Hi babes, so as mentioned in my last post, I’m in Miami! I was booked for the early AM flight on Saturday morning and that didn’t turn out so well, we missed it!
When travelling to the states it’s always important to arrive two hours ahead of time to be sure to catch your flight (especially morning flights). Unfortunately, we had arrived an hour and a half ahead of time and it just didn’t cut it. While passing customs, we were asked to identify our luggage, which at the time we didn’t know was to remove our baggage from the flight. In complete fairness, we were at the gate 11 minutes before it shut. We ended up taking a later flight and once arrived in Miami, I got surprised with news that we were headed to the Bahamas to surprise my little bro that had been vacationing in Nassau for the weekend. I spent all Sunday taking in the Bahamian air, it was so dreamy! You can view more pictures from my weekend spent in the Bahamas on my instagram account @cristinamonti
I’m now lodging in Miami at the beautiful St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort until Thursday, I would stay longer but I refuse to miss the famous Osheaga Montreal Festival this weekend. My main goal in these couple of days are to get a really good tan, since I already have a base shouldn’t be too difficult. I would love to possibly get my hands on a beautiful classic PS11 and squeeze in some bathing suit shopping time. There’s no better place to get awesome swimwear than in Miami.
I leave you with these shots of a dress I styled two ways; one look is styled for a day at the office and the other is more laid back tight dress, converse, jean jacket summer vibes.
Wishing you all a beautiful rest of week!
WORE A DARKER SHADE OF LIPSTICK TO ADD A “I’M A WOMAN IN CHARGE” VIBE. NOTHING SCREAMS MORE “SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE’S DOING” THAN A GOOD LIPSTICK.
A DRESS LIKE THIS ONE IS PERFECT FOR A DAY AT THE OFFICE. IT DOESN’T SHOW TOO MUCH SKIN, LOVE HOW THE SEAM IS RIGHT ABOVE THE KNEE. IF YOU DON’T FEEL TOO COMFORTABLE WITH THE TIGHT FIT, ADDING A CLASSIC BLACK BLAZER OVER IT WILL TONE THE ENTIRE LOOK DOWN.
DEPENDING HOW YOU LIKE YOUR HEELS, THESE PUMPS MIGHT BE A LITTLE TOO HIGH FOR THE OFFICE, IF YOU’RE A RISK TAKER GO FOR IT, IF NOT ANY SIMPLE CLOSED BLACK PUMP WILL DO.
I DRESSED THE LOOK DOWN WITH A SIMPLE JEAN JACKET AND A TRUSTY PAIR OF CONVERSE.
LOVE HOW VERSATILE THIS DRESS IS.
IF YOU’RE LOOKING TO INVEST IN A DURABLE BRAND NAMED PURSE AND DON’T KNOW WHAT TO CHOOSE. THIS GIVENCHY HAS BEEN THE ULTIMATE BAG FOR ME. I CAN LITERALLY FIT EVERYTHING IN IT, MY LABTOP, IPAD, CAMERA, YOU NAME IT, IT’S IN THERE! IT’S A TAD HEAVY BUT THAT’S WHY IT’S INCLUDED WITH A STRAP THAT CAN BE WORN OVER THE SHOULDER.
