Eva Amurri Martino shows off her favorite bathing suit by her pool in Connecticut

Hello from Miami! I wish I could say it was totally sunny, but there have been scattered thunderstorms on the agenda for our whole quick trip.  I would say being alone with my hubby without the kiddos, having cocktails by the beach and finding the spots of sunshine in between the rain is DEFINITELY worth it, though! LOL.  I had so much fun packing for this little getaway that I thought I would share my packing list on the blog today! I found so many cute things to bring along with me.

Miami is a city with so much energy and such a young, vibrant vibe.  I wanted to go with a sporty daytime look and a fun, sultry night time look.  I’m keeping my makeup glow-y and my hair tousled and textured.  I’m especially excited about my bathing suits I found! I had been feeling like I needed a little bathing suit update recently, and I was really excited to find these sexy and cool numbers in an awesome price point.  I’m also dyingggg over this off the should black and white printed dress with billowing tie sleeves.  I just love the fit and the sexy slit.  It can work with flats or heels also, which is perfect for me. (And it’s SO affordable.  Score)

Kyle and I are going out to a couple great dinners while here– one night of sushi, and another at my all-time Miami fave: Joe’s Stone Crab! I always have to eat at Joe’s when I come to this city!  Otherwise, I plan on bumming it by the pool and at the spa– and Kyle is speaking at a conference while here as well. 

Let me know in the Comments if there are any must-see Miami galleries or lunch spots we have to try while visiting.  And if there are any fab, sexy drink spots please share!

        I second Wynwood to walk through Wynwood walls and then gotta stop at Miami Mojito Company…. They actually juice the sugar cane from the sugar cane stalks right on site and make the mojitos will all fresh juices in different flavors. Such a refreshing pick me up.
        Unlike any mojito you have ever had!!!

    Just did a long weekend with my husband in November. We stayed at the 1Hotel, such a great vibe. They have a yummy juice bar called PLNTHOUSE. The Kith in Miami is one of my fav’s, grab some kicks and a treat 😉 We had dinner at a little Turkish spot, Byblos, that was surprisingly our favorite meal there. Also have to agree with visiting Wynwood, such a charming community. Enjoy the sunshine!!

    • I’m obsessed with Kith, and just discovered them! I buy Major all their kids stuff, which I think is beyond adorable but my bank account begs to differ. LOL

    I was totally eyeing that swimsuit a few days ago! Let me know how the fit is. I was looking for something breastfeeding friendly and cover the mom tummy ?

    • I’m obsessed with this suit. I would say it’s v breastfeeding friendly, depending on how “full” you get! I wouldn’t have been able to wear this because my boobs were grapefruits! LOL

  8. Hi Eva,
    I hope your enjoying your vacation as much as I enjoy reading your posts and viewing your awesome pics. I’m currently learning about blogging via tutorials and google. Not as successful as you but I have to start somewhere right?
    Just wanted to leave a note that you are so inspiring, how you manage your work, the kids, the meals, after school events and being an amazing wife. Keep up the great job!! I’m your biggest fan!

    • Thank you so much, Julie! You’re so sweet! Blogging is such a learning process, but I’m sure you’ll get the hang of it. I’ve found that it has taught me so much about myself to really put my aesthetic and thought process and experiences out in written form.
