This weekend was the Wynwood Life festival in Miami. It’s a three day event featuring food trucks, shops, and art. The flyer said “beer” would be featured, but the only beer I saw was a whole lotta Blue Moon, some Peroni, and the usual suspects (miller light etc). Now, I’m not saying these beers aren’t good and I don’t mean to sound like a giant beer snob, BUT there are so many amazing local breweries in that area that I was extremely disappointed. Lu and I decided it would be worth a go anyway. We arrived at around 2:30pm on Saturday. For those of you that are not from south Florida, this is REALLY EARLY in Miami time. Of course true to Miami this time of year, it promptly poured on us as we tried to eat at the food trucks and ruined our hair. Lu’s hair still looked great of course.
Enter one of my best gal’s, Lu:
Shoes: Steve Madden Top: H&M
Bag: Vince Camuto Necklace: H&M
Didn’t her gorgeous hair hold up well after the rain? The grounds were soaked and it was still Super hot and sunny. We found a tent (aka The Oasis..) full of art and a fan. We clearly had to play with the fan.
And then it was my turn to play with the arts.
Fashionable scars: My longboard
Bag: Lauren by Ralph Lauren Black Thurlow Flat Leather Crossbody Bag
Shoes: Penny Loves Kenny
Shorts: Machine Jeans
I didn’t mean for us to be typical Miami people and pose in front of paintings.. but this was literally the only place people were not taking pictures. Plus the art was pretty. Here is what people in Miami do:
Step one: Find an artist
Step two: Take their photo of artist/take selfie near artist (the crowd pictured below has this on lock)
All that aside, we did some shopping:

I got to play some almost giant Jenga with a 12 year old. I lost three times, go figure.
I had to take a picture of these people’s shoes, I hope you enjoy them as much as I did:
