Flynn Skye dress | Team Paris sweater | ASOS shoes 

As mentioned in my last post (HERE), when I was in LA last week, I teamed up with friend,  Chanelle Leslie, to shoot a California-inspired story. Here is part two.

In the last couple of years, I've been back and forth between LA and must say, it has quickly become one of my favourite cities. This time round, I chose to stay in the eclectic neighbourhood of Venice Beach, where I had the pleasure of meeting designer behind the label, Flynn Skye. An accomplished business woman, and genuinely kind and all round fabulous person.

Flynn Skye, represents the true essence of Venice Beach and the California-beach inspired lifestyle.

One of my favourite labels.

Flynn Skye pants | Calvin Klein top | Bijouterie jewels | American Apparel hat 

Just before I left LA, I had the absolute pleasure of catching up with good friend, and fellow Aussie blogger/photographer/ all round amazing chic, Chanelle Leslie. We always seem to meet coincidentally in new cities - you can check out our last collaboration here, shot in Sydney.

We kicked off the day with THE most delicious acai bowls from one of my favourite cafe's along Abbot Kinney, before strolling along Venice Beach, to soak up the last of LA's summer rays.

One of the best things about travel for me is catching up with friends, new and old, sharing new

experiences, and of course creating memories in new and exciting locations.

A great day spent - here is part one of our impromptu California shoot.

Maurie & Eve shorts | Zara Top | Chanel Purse | Senso boots 

I picked up this box cut top somewhere in between Paris and New York, and it has proven to be quite the travel partner. In the past, I'd generally steer clear of neutrals, opting for prints or colour, but having lived out of a single suit case for the last six months, I've learnt that neutral pieces really are a travellers best friend.

Add a pair of trusty boots, a classic Chanel and a splash of colour and you have the basis of unlimited outfits while on the road. Versatile and so easy to mix and match with the rest of my luggage.

My first trip to Miami was a couple of years ago and was a place I immediately fell in love with.

Always a must return when I'm in the States,  Miami is the perfect blend America, Latin culture and the beauty of the Caribbean.

For quick visits, I like to stay on South Beach, right in the heart of the action. I think some mistake South Beach for a party crazy part of Miami - it is definitely an experience, full of all sorts of nightlight and interesting characters, but it really is a great base to explore not only the South Beach area - shops, architecture and restaurants, but also greater Miami, and Florida Keys. South Beach for me is electric and eccentric.

This time I stayed at The Betsy Hotel, and absolutely stunning boutique hotel right on Ocean Drive. An oasis from what I affectionately refers to as Miami madness. Great rooms, lovely service and access to a private beach right on your front doorstep, which I definitely took full advantage of.

If you get the chance, I'd also highly recommend hiring a car and exploring surrounding Miami, including Key Biscayne, Bal Harbour (all your luxury shopping needs covered), and if you have a little more time, do yourselves a favour and make the 2.5/3 hour drive down to Key West, stopping at the many lovely and often secluded swim spots along the way.

Crystal blue waters, endless supply of palm trees and coconuts - a tropical wonderland.

In summary, when in Miami you MUST spend as much time sea-side as possible, water-sports mandatory, try some diverse and delicious and of course indulge in a little shopping.

A short while back, I had the opportunity of teaming up with one of my favourite Melbourne labels, Chip Chop to model their new 'blogger inspired' collection, #todayimwearing.

Channeling my 'inner-Cher' - think 90's Clueless, I had a ball, dressing up and again shooting with one of my favourite (and super-talented) photographers, Mishy Tran. Check out our first campaign collaboration here  

Chip Chop is all things bright, fun and a little bit French, so I was thrilled to team up with a brand I simply J'Adore. 

The new Chip Chop collection, is available online now at www.chipchop.com.au 

As for my travels around the world - I've just landed in Rio and having the time of my life - more on this soon, but in the meantime - you can follow my adventure on instagram @friendinfashionfacebook and twitter.
