New shorts - c/o Kiwilook | new top - American Apparel | bag - Forever 21 | heels - Aldo | watch - NY and C | ring - c/o Rings and Tings| sunglasses - c/o Vivilli


This trip has turned out so differently from how I dreamed it would be 7 months ago. I never imagined getting the flu for the first 10 days of my trip, seeing a doctor for a terrible cough or getting stung by a bee my second day of laying on the beach, only 5 minutes into my book! Oh but that's not to say I am not enjoying my trip - no, no, no. I love Hawaii. No trip can ever be perfect, though I've had a few come very close. It's very important to always make the best of what you have, and I can't ignore the fact of how very lucky I am to even be here at all.

I love the soft sand, clear blue water, pretty fish, friendly locals, entertainers along Waikiki, fun activities (para-sailing, banana boating, snorkeling, boogie boarding, swimming, hiking, stand up paddle boarding, surfing), amazing Hawaiian food, fireworks, fresh pineapple everywhere I turn, random celeb spotting (my sis saw Kim Kardashian in our hotel the other night), the incredible view of our condo and endless opportunities for fun fashion shots! Oh the list goes on... but I don't want to bore you ;)

This outfit felt like structured casual. And my ring, sent to me by Rings and Tings, is just so cute and retro! I had fun walking in heels, but eventually changed to pretty sandals. P.S. Giveaways are getting lined up again. Keep watch! :)

  15. LOVE the cropped top! :) Looks very cute with the shorts. So glad your back! And feeling well, too! I love hawaii. My fave island is Maui for sure--it's laidback but not TOO isolated like Molokai hehe :). And paddle boarding is SO FUN isn't it??? Are you from Hawaii? You look like ya could be :) Can't wait to see more posts from HI! :)
