No one knows gratitude like your favorite Miami blog, #ThankYouMiami. While we are proponents of giving thanks year-round, we are nevertheless fans of a day dedicated to being grateful. In our excitement for tomorrow's Thanksgiving holiday, we have compiled a concise how-to on giving thanks "Miami style". Thanks to the melting pot of cultures in our beautiful city and the never ending summer weather, that means a menu that includes lechon and flan and holiday-wear with brighter colors and lighter fabrics
In keeping with our distinct outlook, Miami's local restos are offering an array of alternative Thanksgiving menus this year so, if you are not in charge of the turkey, more power to you - make a reservation! Cavalli Miami and Ceconni's in Miami Beach are offering prix-fixe menus, for $80 and $35/$45 respectively, with an Italian twist. Similarly, Oolite Miami has an extensive menu of Thanksgiving options that are 100-percent gluten free at $37.99 for three courses and a side. Don't want to eat out? Give your dinner your own twist by adding dishes inspired by other cultures or by practicing your Spanish over dessert.
Regardless of where you will be eating, celebrating "Miami style" also means rocking a look that only a Miami-an would dare to wear this late in the year. To inspire you, we put together three muy chic outfits using our favorite pieces currently available at Florida boutique Magenta Couture. The resulting outfits are simple, but distinctly Miami with their mostly white palette, touches of bright colors, and non-traditional pieces (A trench as a dress? Bejeweled shoes?). And, because we love you, we made sure all three outfits are equipped to hide even the largest of food babies so you can indulge without a care. Bon appetit and happy Thanksgiving!
