South Florida’s lush vegetation is brought to vibrant life as a tropical palm print in turquoise, lemon, magenta, tangerine and lime fans out across a backdrop of soft white.  Atlantic blue liner and hot pink trim and teardrop tab zipper pulls add personality befitting the colorful art deco architecture along Miami’s Ocean Drive.  Whether it’s a day spent lounging poolside or a night hitting the clubs of South Beach, a Miami getaway requires a wardrobe that’s infused with bright color and is well-suited for hot days (and nights).

Here’s what else made it inside my suitcase for a mid-winter sojourn in Miami:
