Hey guys! Last week I was contacted by Kendra to participate in her fashion challenge! She’s going on a romantic getaway to Miami with her husband, and she wanted some fashion inspiration.

Here’s what she said it’s all about:

“My husband is taking me to Miami on a romantic getaway. It will be just the two of us on this special vacation. There are many things that I want to do, but what I need is outfits and accessories that will fit in perfectly with our stay in Miami. That is why I created Kendra’s Fashion Challenge. The outfits that I want to be wearing can be trendy and simply amazing. While in Miami, we will be bringing our digital camera in order to take numerous photos of our adventures. It is my desire to look back on those photos and see in me a timeless and chic style. We will be staying at the marvelous Biltmore Miami Coral Gables Estate. gogobot is where we learned about this historic hotel. This site has a large amount of real testimony reviews on hotels and many activities that guests can do. Not only that, but we learned about the venues that Miami has to offer. The Biltmore is a fascinating place with a wonderous history and classy look. When my husband and I arrive at the Biltmore Miami Coral Gables Estates, we will be staying at the suite that is known as the Everglades. I really like the open design. Not only that, but the lighting is tremendous. It has a dining room table, a baby grand piano, a desk, a kitchen and a private elevator. I was stunned to learn that Al Capone once stayed here. These accommodations are truly exciting. When it is time for a romantic dinner, the Biltmore Miami Coral Gable Estates has a fantastic restaurant we will be visiting, and that is the Palme d’or. This French restaurant has limited hours, but memorable food. I look and feel my best when I am wearing outfits that are ideal every occasion. It is awesome to have a cute outfit with matching accessories when the two of us do something together. I want to look stunning whether we are having a fancy dinner together or having a shopping adventure.  I am at my best when I am confident with the clothes I wear! ”

She gave me details on what she’ll be up to during her stay, and I came up with two easy breezy outfits: a day look and a night look.

Day Look:

Dress: Forever 21+
Hat: Forever 21
Shoes: Modcloth
Necklace: Michael Kors
Midi Ring: Maria Black
Bag: Forever 21
Cuff: Nine West
Lipstick: MAC Sweet Experience

A plus size friendly option! I knew I wanted to do a bright and fun maxi dress for my day look. I actually don’t own any maxi dresses, because finding one that’s long enough for me is quite the challenge. I love the colors of this dress, and I decided to pair it with gold and rose gold accessories. I love how shades of gold work with peach shades for a light summery look.

Night Look:

Dress: Topshop
Shoes: Topshop
Necklace: Overstock
Bangle: YOOX
Lipstick: Too Faced Melted Peony

I love lacy dresses for romantic nights out. Also, the navy blue looks so good against tanned skin, which I’m sure she’ll have plenty of in Miami! I went with simple but unique silver accessories to compliment the dress and my choice of a bold lip. I love these new Too Faced Melted lipsticks, and the coral-y pink shade pops against the deep blue.

So there it is! Two classic, flattering, and easy to wear pieces for a romantic getaway with a loved one!

Which is your favorite?

xoxo Gigi.
