buy it: summer vacation essentials

My vacation to Miami is confirmed! I'm leaving next Saturday for five days and nights in South Beach- woo! The best part: I'm going solo. I went to Florida by myself after my last major breakup, and it was amazing. Lounging on the beach, room service, sleeping in- it was incredibly rejuvenating. So after my rollercoaster spring and summer, I'm taking off again and hoping for the same results. I've never been to Miami Beach, but 2 things are sure to happen next weekend: beaching and clubbing. That said, here are a few things I'd love to throw in my suitcase.


who doesn't need a teeny-weeny polka dot bikini? this one from roxy is adorbs! rock it with oversized sunglasses from armani exchange, neutrogena ultrasheer sunscreen, fresh sugar rose lip balm, and throw it all in this canvas beach tote.


I love this bebe dress... accessorized with these pumps and rose clutch- cute! Complete your late-night look with smoky stila shadow and red lip gloss.

It's pretty evident that I could buy my entire wardrobe at White House Black Market... I really love black and white with splashes of red, and white is apparently very big in Miami at the moment. Now all I need is my iPod... got any awesome beach/plane/club tunes I should download?! I'll definitely be putting together a Miami playlist (sans Will Smith please...)
