Kim Kardashian returned to Florida to continue filming spin-off series Kourtney & Kim Take Miami and stepped out in the sunshine showing off her hourglass figure to the maximum in a black crop top and tight belted pencil skirt with gold belt.
Shiny gold t-bar Louboutin shoes and an intricate side braid in her long dark hair completed the look.
Kim Kardashian, 32, has described Sunday’s romantic visit to Venice as “the best birthday ever”, and she and Kanye West also took in Rome and Florence as part of their tour.

However, Kim Kardashian didn’t seem too interested in sight-seeing – instead hitting the copious amounts of designer shops in the fashion friendly country.
But she clearly had a good time, tweeting last Friday: “Italy is so beautiful! Best birthday ever!!!”
Kim Kardashian headed to upmarket dinner venue Prime 112 on Sunday night in an outfit more suitable for a day at the pool.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were photographed at the exclusive Prime 112 restaurant in Miami, with Kim turning heads in a black bra-style bikini top which showed slivers of her stomach and breasts.
She teamed the barely there top with a high-waisted grey pencil skirt. But even this bordered on the indecent side – as it was transparent.
Kim Kardashian’s most famous asset – her behind – was clearly visible through the skirt, which she cinched high at her waist with a thick leather belt which featured what looked like a jaguar head on the buckle.
She wore no jewellery with her eye-popping outfit, her only bling a pair of metallic silver heels.
Her tiny black bra top revealed plenty of cleavage at the front, as well as a small amount of Kim Kardashian’s midriff.

Kanye West, meanwhile, rocked an all-black outfit of jeans and a short-sleeved collared shirt over a black T-shirt.
The 35-year-old musician completed his look with black trainers, his only bling a prominent gold chain around his neck.
Prime 112 is an upscale steak and seafood restaurant known for its deep and delicious dessert menu.
But given her tightly belted waist, Kim Kardashian may not have had too much opportunity to squeeze in dessert.
Kim Kardashian admitted recently to Life & Style magazine that she had put on weight, and would start dieting.
Friends of the famous personality say her relationship with Kanye West is at least partly to blame.
“She’s gained 15 to 20 pounds. All Kim and Kanye ever do is go out to eat,” a friend tells the magazine.
“She feels so comfortable around him – he loves her curves – she hasn’t been vigilant about dieting.”
After their dinner, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were seen leaving the restaurant, where they ran into NFL player Reggie Bush.
Skinny jeans, leggings and blazers have replaced denim jackets, polo necks and thick black tights as wardrobe staples over the last 25 years, a study has revealed.
From leather leggings to denim hot pants, trends come and go as fashion evolves every season.
But it seems that some trends are here to stay.
Nude tights, ballet pumps, a maxi dress and a black or nude clutch bag are also among the modern must-haves every women should own.
But while they might have been staple items in the 1980s, straight-leg jeans and simply knee length skirts are no longer considered as classic clothes.
It wasn’t all change though, as black trousers, cardigans, a simple white blouse or shirt and the little black dress have remained constant must-haves through the decades.

Black or brown boots, black court shoes, a pencil skirt and a smart black coat have also stood the test of time and are still considered staple items.
A spokesman for F&F at Tesco in UK, which commissioned the research said: “Everyone has a section of their wardrobe which is reserved for staple items.
“And while many have remained the same, there are some that have changed as the trends and fashion has evolved over the past twenty years or so.
“Good-quality staple items can really help to save costs when it comes to a new season or trend.
“If you’ve got a few trusty items of clothing that you can rely on, all you need is one or two pieces from a new trend and you have an up-to-date and fashionable outfit for a fraction of the cost.
“So it’s worth making sure the staple items you do buy are good quality so you can be sure they will stand the test of time for years to come.”
The study found that 81% make sure their wardrobe is always full of staple or classic items, with another 83% believing there are items that every woman should own.
And the average woman estimates that almost half of their closet is taken up with classic clothes which they can wear year after year – compared to just a quarter which is reserved for trend items each season.
Almost three quarters of the women polled also said they are happy to splash more money than usual on staple items knowing they will get plenty of wear from it.
A third of women even own items of clothing that has been such a wardrobe staple, it has been passed on to them from older friends and relatives.
More than one in ten even have some timeless clothes which they have been wearing for 20 years or more now.
Researchers also found that 57% of people say the majority of the staple items in their wardrobe is black, followed by beige, brown, white and grey.
According to the study, in an average month, women spend £22.01 ($34.55) adding to their staple items, with quality and the look or appearance the most important factors when shopping for wardrobe essentials.
But the study found that it’s not all about staple items with 46% of women saying they like to go shopping and stock up on some fashion items to complement their basics.
Seventy-seven per cent even admitted they have kept certain items of clothing in the hope they will someday become trendy and fashionable again.
A spokesman for F&F at Tesco, added: “The secret to a good wardrobe is mixing your staple items with a few key fashion pieces each season.
“Buying good quality staple items alongside some more trendy, one-off clothes means you get to keep up with the latest fashion, without breaking the bank.”
