Hi ! And welcome back to my blog. 
So as you all already know, this past weekend was Miami Swim Week. I am proud to say that I survived my first full swim "weekend", and boy was it intense. This past weekend Collins avenue was surely a scene. From models scurrying down the streets, to camera men swishing past you to get that perfect shot, to invitees urging to get a good seat to capture those 20 minutes down the runway front and center. And while surprisedly this year the whole "function" was not sponsered by Mercedes-Benz, the shows had to go on and they did not disappoint. First show I caught was the Peroni emerging designers at the SLS hotel. Fun and bright swim and resortwear, spiffy little dresses, and twirl-worthy midi skirts in this one! However, my favorite would have to be 6 Shore Road by Pooja collection. It was absolutely beautiful, and you could feel the energy of the models as they danced acrossed the runway to the upbeat tempos. I also had the priviledge to check out Bianca Coletti's swimwear presentation along with Glamour magazine at the Soho beach house as well (catch some photos below). Think trendy prints and cheeky little bottoms, as well as beautiful ruffled one-pieces that I still cannot stop thinking about ;) Caffe swimwear did not stay behind either. Their impressive runway on the water at the W hotel was quite the site and it included many printed maxi dresses, straw beach bags and colorful tunics. Although there's one that I couldnt attend, I heard the Mara Hoffman presentation at Casa Casuarina (aka the Versace mansion) was an absolute dream. Filled with Moraccan inspiration, which included her signature graphic prints, out of this world caftans, and even some head pieces. I must also add that while everything went according to plan, almost all of the shows and presentations started late, talk about running on Miami time !!! Needless to say, I am honestly still recovering from this past weekend, but overall I must say it was a great experience. Here's to the next Miami Swim Week! Thanks for reading, peep some photos below!
