I apologize for being away from social media and my blog the past few days. At my school, the junior class does a three-day retreat where we are given the chance to unplug from digital media and our phones, which are normally attached to our hands and glued to our eyes. Never in a million years would I think I would enjoy being away from technology, but it was incredibly refreshing and rejuvenating to not be checking my accounts, texts, emails throughout the day. As you all know, I speak the truth around here, so I truly, truly recommend doing a digital detox for a few hours, a day, or a weekend. Whatever floats your boat.
Now, we must work through the photo overflow and backed-up blogposts I have in store. To begin on Christmas Eve, my family and I went across Biscayne Bay over to the Key Biscayne Lighthouse. I love, love visiting lighthouses; even more so when you are able to go the top (always in search of that killer view). Key Biscayne Lighthouse has 360 views of Miami from the infamous last houses of Stiltsville aka the OG Floridian Hippy Dream to the beaches of Key Biscayne, downtown Miami in the distance, and Coconut Grove across the bay.
For those who are interested in visiting, it costs $10 to park your car, which gives you complete access to roam the park, visit the lighthouse, take a dip, or whatever you please.
Since I was coming right from the water, I kept my get-up super simple with my favorite cutoff shorts, an Outdoor Voices crop, paired with an oversized, white Reformation tee over... obviously not shown here. I hope you also excuse my messy, salty hair. When in doubt, embrace the ocean's free of charge 'do.
