Fashion Over Reason: Life's a Beach

Life's a Beach

Miami Beach, South Beach, ocean, aqua blue water

What's a trip to Miami without a beach day?! Nothing, that's what. It's become a little tradition to end the week with some well-deserved, much needed time on the sand, soaking up the sun and frolicking in the waves (sort of). So we gathered a group together and headed for the beautiful shore of Miami Beach. Such a treat.

I didn't actually achieve my goal of getting any color on my skin, as I'm kind of a hopeless case, but we did have loads of fun doing all sorts of things. Besides laying out and not really moving for a couple of hours, we managed to get a pretty spectacular synchronized jump with some significant air, as you can see below.

My friends, who are all really into yoga -- not exactly my bag -- kept doing all kinds of crazy poses and freezes with one another while I was busy imbibing the rays. They suddenly beckoned for me to join them... They had a move that we could all do together, apparently. I promptly assured them that I had no business doing any kind of partner posing or stretching, as I would probably throw out my back or sustain some other kind of ridiculously embarrassing injury. They insisted, I obliged, and in the end surprised myself, as there I was, the last addition to the "handstand pyramid" as they aptly named it. See below for living proof.

So there you have it, this concludes the sunny Miami posts and, we can now go back to more seasonally-apporopriate programming. I hope you loved reading about Art Basel as much as enjoyed attending it and preparing this series of posts.
