Miami and back

Here’s a super-post of a few of my Miami outfits (and today’s outfit for chilly NYC).

I decided to take a quick flight down to Miami to visit a dear friend while I have some time away from work. The sunshine and the happy faces of my friend and her children were exactly what I needed!

Old friends might be the 8th wonder of the world.  No conversation needs rehearsal or prolonged background information; you simply understand one another. It is so remarkable and refreshing that you can step into a room with one and instantly connect on topics old and new. 

Photo 1: You can’t really see the long maxi dress I am wearing, so I”ll focus on makeup. Eyes: Urban Decay Naked Palette #1. Lips: Revlon Just Bitten Kissable lipstick in Sweetheart Valentine. Face: Dolce & Gabbana matte foundation, Nars blush. Brows: Benefit Gimme Brow.
