Hawaii (Kauai) Vacation Outfits: Yellow Floral Maxi Dress With Woven Straw Tote Bag
Sunglasses: Target (sold out, similar here)
This yellow kimono sleeve maxi dress has got to be the most comfortable maxi dress I’ve ever owned AND it’s on MAJOR SALE right now! It’s like, 40% off and you’re going to want to grab one asap before your size sells out. It’s the perfect summer dress! The cherry blossom print is adorable and the fabric is lightweight and flowy. I love a kimono-style sleeve maxi dress. The waist is a true wrap-style, meaning it’s not sewed together and you can actually open the dress and wrap it around. It ties at the waist with an extra long sash that flutters beautifully with the slightest breeze. I got so many compliments on this dress during our stay in Kauai. I think it’s because the flowy fabric makes this dress look so chic but still super casual due to the print. This dress shape is also super flattering on all body types. It covers imperfections and gives you a beautiful shape. I also wore it as a swimsuit cover-up and it can also be worn with wedges and a cute clutch to dress it up. It’s such a versatile piece.
I also have to tell you about these earrings which you can see in the 4th picture from the top. I first saw them on Rachel Parcell and instantly knew I needed them. The white floral shape is perfect for spring and summer looks. They’re made of white resin with a fabric covered center. I wore them with almost all my outfits in Kauai even though I brought lots of other styles, these are just so pretty and they really go with everything. They’re also available in a few other colors and prints.
Lastly, I can’t wrap this post up without telling you about my $15 sandals. How pretty are these? Again, this is a style that goes with everything. I had these on repeat almost every day in Kauai. The ones I got are a muted gold color, but they also come in a beautiful tan leather as well as a few other colors. Best of all is that these are made of vegan leather. Finding cute vegan leather sandals can be tough, especially ones at such a great price point so I suggest you grab a pair before they’re sold out.
Really quick before I sign off if you’re in Kauai go to Anake’s juice bar (click here for their Yelp), get a Poipu Paradise smoothie bowl (without honey, to make it vegan) then walk across to this shopping center (The Shops at Kukuiula) and enjoy your bowl at a bench under the large trees. That’s what we did on this day for breakfast. Athena had so much fun chasing the birds while we enjoyed our smoothie bowls. There’s also a farmers market every Wednesday from 3:30-6. The produce selection is unbelievable and the prices are pretty great. I got a HUGE bag of fresh basil for $3!.
