Caftan

_H7A0265

This past weekend we were welcomed with some very summer-like weather. It was absolutely beautiful but unexpectedly humid which is just a small reminder of what’s to come in the next few months. While easy to wear sundresses make up a large portion of my wardrobe I couldn’t help but snag this embellished caftan from Calypso during their recent spring sale.  [Read more…]

Mango & Sweet Corn Pico de Gallo

SAMSUNG CSC

This summer I’m ditching traditional salsa in favor of salsas infused with fresh, seasonal ingredients.  Juicy mango and fresh corn take a traditional pico de gallo to the next level making it the ideal summer salsa. Not only is this mango salsa absolutely amazing with blue corn tortilla chips but it’s incredibly versatile and seriously delicious when served on top of grilled fish or alongside scrambled eggs in the morning.  [Read more…]

Festival Style with Teva

SAMSUNG CSC

Festival season is in full swing and I’m loving all of the laid back festival trends this season. Loose fitting dresses cinched at the waist with western inspired accessories, mixed prints paired with classic leather and suede accessories. Year after year I find so much inspiration from festival style and this year is no different.

Heyooo! Happy Friday!!
This past week flew by which is never something you’ll find me complaining about but I think it was the combination of being ultra busy and having minimal down time. Last weekend was really fun and started with a Nordstrom Trend Fashion Show at the Royal Hawaiian. It had been quite some time since I had walked in a fashion show so it was really fun to get back out there. Sunday turned out to be a beautiful day so Marc and I headed down for a relaxing afternoon at the beach, something we hadn’t done in far too long. I’m hoping for some quality beach time this weekend so I plop down on my towel and finish reading YOU, which is fantastic by the way! 
How was your week? Any fun plans for the weekend? Have a great one!! XX

Almond & Oat Waffles with Toasted Coconut

SAMSUNG CSC

It’s not often that I indulge in something as decadent as waffles and to be honest I’m not that big of a fan of them at restaurants.  Waffles at home… now that’s how I like them, preferably hot off the waffle iron and full of delicious toasted coconut then topped with a little bit of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Matchy Matchy in Maui

I’m a big fan of matching separates, especially when they are as cute as this set from Paper Crown. The subtle blue and red stripes give it a slight nautical feel making it the perfect little duo to welcome the warmer months. [Read more…]

Finding the Right Sunglasses to Fit Your Face

sunglass headder

With summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to update your sunglass assortment and find the perfect frames to fit your face. Before moving to Hawaii, I spent about 8 years working in the eyewear industry. I worked with brands like Chanel, Ray Ban, Oliver Peoples and Stella McCartney and worked with both optical frames as well as sunglasses. When it comes to picking the right frames to fit different face shapes, I’m somewhat of an expert. [Read more…]
