Bottle popping, model jockin’, Dom P sippin’, waking up in new Bugatti’s after LIV on Sunday (haaaaaaaaannnn) and stumbling into bed in the midst of a humid sunrise, instagram that – #MiamiNights, now return the rental and fly home, because that’s not real life. Ok… perhaps some of it is here, for some, to a degree but a solid Sunday with a quick trip to Urban Outfitters and hot, late July Tuesday night have restored a little faith in the on again/off again love affair I have with Miami.
A blissful Sunday with pool time, paddle boarding, a thunderstorm, sunny South Beach, actually going into the ocean, Starbucks overload, work and a work out, and of course, the reason you’re hearing about it, a quick trip to Urban Outfitters on Collins and 7th. All Miami Sunday’s should be so lucky to be this jam packed. After paddle boarding in Fort Lauderdale with Kat, my friend Kirsy and I abandoned the developing thunderstorm, headed to South Beach and took it straight to the ocean. Quick stop at Starbucks and onto UO, we headed directly to the best place to start in any store, the sale section (my type of girl). She picked up a white eyelet, sweetheart crop which we both ended up trying on. Never thinking something like this would work for me, I bought it. From $30 to $9.99, now put successful Sunday in the books. Don’t get me wrong, Sunday nights in Miami have their perks, however aside from being a little sore, I’ve seen worse Monday mornings.
As I’ve been in the house more, I took the first opportunity to wear the Pins and Needles crop out to Andiamo’s, in the converted 55th Street Train Station, with Winston for pizza. What better evening than a sticky, hot, Miami summer night eating meatballs (Winston’s brilliant suggestion) outside to wear such a perfect crop. As rewarding as good meatballs are, the combo of good food and great company called for continuing the evening. I introduced Winston to the Curtis Kulig, Love Me tagged, Broken Shaker at Freehand Miami, a literal mixologist’s heavenly oasis with crazy smooth jazz (reggae last Saturday, Flexxxa), and poolside board games in incredible atmosphere with a wide array of lounging options.
I live for simple, relaxing days and nights like these with the occasional #MiamiNights in the mix. Oh MIA, your inconsistency kills me. Figures, with my track record, incorporated July 28, Happy belated Birthday Miami, you would be a Leo.
