Olivia Lopez (aka @lusttforlife) knows travel–something you’re certainly privy to if you’re one of her 315k-and-growing followers on Instagram. Every week, it’s another place. Fiji, Los Angeles, Miami, Taiwan. This is a girl that’s always on the go. What separates Lopez from the herd is her aesthetically appetizing combination of fashion, architecture, food, and landscape. It’s a 360-degree look at the good life–lust-worthy, indeed. Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel, had the pleasure of hosting Lopez recently. Here, she breaks down her favorite places to soak in all that South Beach has to offer.
For Shopping: The Webster
A trip to Miami wouldn’t be complete without a quick stop-and-shop at The Webster, a curated designer boutique with the best pieces for resort wear from labels like Proenza Schouler, Céline, and Sea. Since Miami is a year-round resort town, the shop stocks some of the quirkiest and most daring swim gear that you can only get away with in South Beach.
1220 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139
For Sights: Española Way
One of my favorite places to take a stroll in Miami is Española Way, a pink-colored and tree-lined street filled with Spanish cafes and restaurants. I have a ritual where I’ll cruise down the street with a gelato and people-watch in the nearest sliver of shade.
14th and 15th St from Washington to Jefferson Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139
For Design: Wynwood Design District
There is no shopping district quite as stylish as Wynwood Design District, an outdoor retail experience with storefronts from the likes Loewe, Hermes, and Fendi. The shops at Wynwood blur the boundaries between retail and installation, each store playing out a distinct architectural theme from its neighbor.
591 NW 27th St, Miami, FL 33127
For Sea: Miami Beach Boardwalk
South Beach traffic is notoriously bad, so my mode of transport traveling north and south of Collins is via beach cruiser on the Miami Beach Boardwalk. Perks: beachfront views and a vantage point to check out the best pool parties.
46th Street and Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33132
For Art: Pérez Museum
Last but not least, make sure to check out the Pérez Art Museum, a contemporary art museum located off Collins with a cool curation of exhibits and installations.
