Greetings from Hawaii!!! I’ve been meaning to publish like 5 different posts but this trip had me losing my mind. We were scrambling to get ready for it, so much so that we ended up leaving 5 days later than we originally planned because we weren’t ready when we were supposed to be, lol. Anyway, we’ve been having the best time here in Kauai. We’re on the smallest and greenest island of Hawaii, it’s also known as the Garden Island. It’s SO green and lush with flowers! Some of you said in my IG DM’s that this place reminded you of Jurassic Park, which is funny because that movie was filmed here! The weather has been perfect, we’ve been eating smoothie bowls every day and playing on the beaches. I feel just like I did last time, I don’t want to leave, lol. We’re here a total of 10 days so let’s see how I feel on day 9.

Athena has been splashing her little heart out. She LOVES the water! She really is such a water baby, just like her birth sign, Pisces. Every morning she wakes up and says, “Let’s eat ice cream!”, that’s what she calls smoothie bowls. Then after breakfast, she’ll say, “Let’s go beach! I build sand castle!” Lol. I love how much she loves it here and how happy she is. I thought she’d be scared of the water but no, she just gets right and walks all around, lol. Kauai is so family friendly; I’ve seen more families with babies/toddlers and pregnant women than I can count. If you’re thinking of taking your family to Hawaii, consider coming to Kauaii and stay on the south shore in Poipu, it has the most kid-friendly beaches with shallow, calm waters.

You guys, I’ve gotten so many compliments on this top and these earrings. My top is super soft, lightweight, flowy, and perfect for spring/summer. It definitely has a vacation feel, however, when I first tried it on I was wearing jeans and black over the knee boots and it looked really cute that way too. So It’s a versatile piece; which, by the way, I try to only buy pieces that can be worn and styled at least 3 different ways. Versatile pieces are my fave because I love the challenge of wearing something in a totally different way than last time and I want pieces that I will have for a long time that can be worn in most or all seasons.

These gold palm leaf earrings are such an eye-catching piece and they’re only $7!!! I also have to tell you about this purse scarf, which you can’t really see but it’s super pretty and chic. It’s actually a scarf pony! If you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t noticed these are trending like crazy right now, let me tell you all about them. This is a scrunchie with a scarf that ties onto the scrunchie part so you can wear it different ways, just the scrunchie alone, just the scarf, or with the crunchie and the scarf together. Also, you can take the scarf part off and tie it around your purse or a hat or anything you like. Another super versatile piece that I’m obsessed with!

Ok, this is a long post and it’s 10 pm here so I’ll wrap it up from today. Leave your questions or comments below!!!

Oh! One last thing, if you missed my IG stories, Charlotte Russe is going out of business and these sandals are on clearance for $15! I can’t find the link but if you have a store near you, go grab a pair. They also come in black and they’re true to size. I linked similar pairs above.

I LOVE the fourth of July. Watching fireworks on a summer night with friends and family, what’s not to like? I also love playing with the day’s color scheme. If you’re not careful, it can be easy to look like Fourth of July threw up on you. I could have opted for red shoes but I chose to keep the red subtle in this outfit so as not to go overboard. So I added red lipstick, red trimmed sunglasses, and a red scarf. BTW, how cute is this animal print scarf? Love it! I absolutely love this embroidered stars top too, it’s not only perfect for Fourth of July but for all summer! The extra wide, oversized sleeves are dreamy! It also comes with a cami underneath since the top is crocheted. This is definitely an outfit I’ll be wearing many times this summer.

I’ve been searching for the perfect denim jacket forever and I finally found it! The best part, it’s under $40! Woot! It has a little bit of stretch, which I love and need (chubby arms, lol). I’ve been wearing it so much and I love how versatile it is! It’s super comfortable too and the material is perfect. It’s a soft and breathable cotton with a good weight to it— love it! If you follow me on Instagram, take a peek at my Instastories, throughout the week I’ll be sharing different ways to wear it.  Happy Humpday everyone!

Kimono Coat

I’m kind of obsessed with this linen kimono coat. I love the drapey effect that the woven linen creates. I’d been searching for a soft trench coat when I stumbled across this Tibi coat and immediately knew it would be mine. The material looked very light weight when I was looking at it online but when I received it, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it’s a heavy weight linen. It’s the perfect transitional piece for going from fall to winter since it can still be layered under an overcoat.
