One of my favorite weekend activities is to schlep the kids and husband to Bal Harbour Shops. And not to necessarily to fire up my AmEx card. We’ll start off by filling our bellies at Makoto — I literally crave their crunchy rice tuna on a weekly basis and my kids are obsessed with their ramen noodle soup.

Lunch is always followed by visiting the koi pond where my kids will sit and “ooh and aah” as the turtles bask in the sun with their legs outstretched for extra warmth. Me? I sit on the outskirts of the pond and people watch because the specimens shopping here are bar none the best dressed women and men in Miami. Of course you’ll find some too-trendy trainwrecks, too — that’s inevitable anywhere, really. Even I leave the house in Juicy couture velour tracksuits on bad days. In fact, today I wore PJs at camp drop-off. Judge all want!

Afterwards, I’ll insist on walking around — and the progeny will mutiny as indicated on my son’s face in these very pictures. As a fashion editor, snooping around the highbrow brands which set the tone every season is invariably part of my job.

After this past Saturday’s stroll, I’m really feeling the strong Moschino comeback (Intermix carries almost every piece) and a pair of mirrored sunnies I discovered by designer Thom Browne.

And, nope, I didn’t spend a dime. Proving that window shopping can be just as fulfilling as hearing the ca-ching of the cash register. Pinky swear.

I hear you on the people watching at Bal Harbour! While I’m loving your romper and fabulous accessories ( hello red Chanel!) I think the best accessory is that little man holding your hand. Such a cutie!
