Fashion Chalet Advice on Miami Delay

I am getting so excited for our trip to Mexico, about two weeks away! We have a long delay in Miami, but it’s actually perfect because we’ve both been wanting to visit. Two and two finally clicked together when I noticed that Erika of Fashion Chalet is actually from Miami and recently posted about it. Erika was gracious enough to answer a few of my questions about my Miami pit-stop. Thanks again Erika! Be sure to check out her fabulous blog here!

FF: How long did you live in Miami?
FC: “I was born there and only just moved away October 2009.”

FF: What’s your favorite boutique or store in Miami?
FC: “I love Sunset place there’s Studio LX and Urban Outfitters and Forever 21 in this convenient outdoor location. Along with great restaurants, bookstore and Cinema. I also love Lincoln Rd. many great Vintage boutiques. I used to roller blade there as a kid. They have pretty outdoor cafes and restaurants as well.”

FF: Favorite restaurant, coffee shop, bar and hangout?
FC: “The Falls mall for books, people watching and shopping. My favorite restaurant is quite a few actually ๐Ÿ˜‰ but I really love AURA – Modern Mediterranean cuisine and bar. The restaurant itself was designed by Morris Lapidus, world famous architect who designed the Fountainbleu Hotel. And Nespresso for upscale coffee.”

FF: If someone were visiting for a few hours in July- what would you recommend wearing? Keep in mind, they were just on a plane ride from Denver and about to board a plane to Mexico….
FC: “Loose cottons. Nothing lycra, polyester or denim. TOO HOT. I’d maybe pair a loose cotton dress over ankle tie sandals and cotton shorts. Sunglasses are essential! Rompers are also terrific.
What fashion trends should I expect to see in Miami? Color and lots of it.”

FF: What should I buy in Miami?
FC: “A mug, pen and postcard. If you get a chance, pop into Fly Boutique on Lincoln rd. for some vintage sunglasses or shoes.”

If you have any ideas about what to do or things to see in Miami feel free to comment! Renee Mudd of The-Intersection suggested I try: “Check out Espanola Way at night…adorable little street off the main strip. Eat at Tapas & Tintos. News Cafe or Front Porch for brunch alfresco.” Thanks love!
