Over the weekend, I decided to have a quick getaway with my girlfriends and also attended the Cotton 24 hour Runway Show in South Beach Miami, Florida. This trip couldn’t have come at a better time, being that the weather is cooler here now in NYC brrr. My Miami getaway trip was perfect. I got to lay on the beach, ate at fabulous restaurants, partied and got to be apart of Cottons 24 hour runway show. Cotton’s 24 Hour Runway Show took place Friday, November 7 on the corner of 8th street and Ocean Drive, and with it comes an entire fleet of celebrities and fashion bloggers all celebrating America’s favorite material. Giuliana and Bill Rancic, Jason Kennedy, and Michael Yo were hosts and Olivia Palermo dished out some much sought after style tips. Some of the brands styling included Wildfox, Anthropologie, Bloomingdale’s, French Connection, Lilly Pulitzer, and Banana Republic, Peace Love World, Style Saves, Perry Ellis, and Santika Design just to name a few. Here is a recap of the events taken place over the weekend.
Beach Day with my Girlfriends Ashley and Empress, Fun in the Sun!
First thing the ladies and I decided to do was head to the beach. The weather was perfect, I got a beautiful golden tan listened to music and relaxed what other way to start amazing weekend getaway. I was a bit sick coming on this trip, but that did not stop me from enjoying the beautiful weather. As for my swimwear I wore a one piece bathing suit from American Apparel and HM accessories.
Here is my day outfit,I wore the first day into my trip. I chose something cute and very comfortable. My romper was black with a laced neck line. I paired that with my black floppy hat and black espadrilles. The whole outfit from head to toe was HM, and my purse is an irreversible tote bag from Urban Outfitters. I personally love love love this bag super spacious, simple yet chic.
Here are a few looks from the Cotton 24 Hour Runway Fashion Show hosted by Michael Yo.
Before attending the Cotton 24 hour fashion show, I had to brunch which was delicious. Pancakes with fruits and a Mai Tai with a tasty pineapple to top it off.

Whats South Beach, Miami without a little night life? Yes anyone who knows me, knows I love to dress up go out and have a good time. Although I was super sick in this photo I still managed to head out to Cameo Night Club and danced the night away. Here I’m wearing an HM snake skin printed dress, paired with my BCBG zippered pumps with a mini black Zara clutch.
