Hawaii (Kauai) Vacation Outfits: Yellow Floral Maxi Dress With Woven Straw Tote Bag

Dress: Nordstrom | Purse: Amazon | Earrings: BaubleBar | Sandals: Target

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!.

Lastly, I also paired this same sweater with my favorite ripped jeans and canvas espadrille platforms for a super easy and casual look, which you can see on my Instagram here.

Sweater / Jeans/ Shoes / Earrings

Here’s the casual look I wore this past Sunday while volunteering downtown. I love how cute these canvas espadrilles sneakers are. It’s such a flexible shoe, they’re going te be perfect for spring and summer looks. The top and insoles are made of canvas. The outsoles are rubber and the platform is a beautiful espadille design. My guess is that your’e going to see them everywhere come summertime. They are super comfortable and are available in three different colors. Click the links above to shop them.

I’m channeling my inner Olivia Newton John in these faux leather leggings. Her outfit in the last scene of Grease is still on of my favorites to this day. She just looks so damn cool and that’s just how these leggings make you feel. These faux leather leggings are by Spanx and they’re quite comfortable; it kind of just feels like I’m wearing yoga pants. I love the faux leather look of these, they’re the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe. I love how high they come up on the waist and they stay there! They smooth you out and I swear they go with just about everything. Completely obsessed with these!

Boy do I have some seriously awesome finds for you guys today! First up, this v-neck tee is oh so soft and perfect for everyday! It comes in 6 colors (I bought it in four). I love the sleeve length, it’s about an inch longer than your standard short sleeve tee. It’s got a drapey fit in the torso which makes is great for tucking into jeans. I also love the raw edge detail of the neckline. I’m wearing a size medium here. Almost forgot the best part, this t shirt is only $17!!! I was never a t-shirt and jeans kinda gal until just recently. I always found the pairing a bit too simplistic but now that I have a baby, jeans and a tee are my  go-to for everyday outfits. But it’s not only about practicality and comfort, I also really enjoy elevating a simple look by adding a pair of heels or some cute accessories. And now, I’m kind of obsessed with t shirts. I’m constantly on the hunt for more but that sleeve’s got to be right.

Next up are these super versatile, faux-suede, block-heel, nude sandals. I’ve been seeing this style everywhere and rightly so because they seem to go well with just about everything. I been wanting a pair for a while now but each one I found had real leather so I passed on them. Then I came across these at Target and they’re IDENTICAL to other, much more expensive, options so I quickly snagged them. These were the last pair and I haven’t seen them in stores again but they’re still available online and they come in black too. Best part, they’re under $30!

The last thing I want to mention is my necklace. It’s a 14k gold nameplate necklace made by Love Always XO Designs. I LOVE her shop! It’s full of so many pretty necklaces, all of which can be customized. I got this 14k gold nameplate necklace engraved with my baby’s birthday in roman numerals. I absolutely love it! If you’re interested in getting one for yourself (or as a gift), use code “BC2017”  for 30% off your total purchase.

Ok, one last, last thing. My jeans are on sale again! I’ve talked about these jeans a few times before because they’re one of my favorite pairs ever. They fit really well at the waist without being too tight in the thigh area. And I really like the distressed look and ankle-zipper details. They’re seriously so comfy and they’re 30% off right now!
