You know when you buy a new outfit and end up literally wearing it nonstop for a few days straight? Yep, I’m totally guilty of that with this romper. It’s just so soft and comfortable so I figured I’d do a post on it today. I paired it with my favorite leather jacket and comfy booties for an easy look, day or night. Now I’m off to go binge watch Married at First Sight. My sister told me about this show today and, since Holden’s out with friends tonight, I’m shamelessly already 5 episodes deep. Happy Thursday! XOXO

P.S. did you catch the guy photobombing my first photo? Hilarious.

All in the Details

This skirt, hat and booties have pretty much been my go-to uniform this week, and I just keep swapping out the top depending on where I’m going. Long sleeved top at night, crop top for going out, and this casual tee for a daytime look with just a pop of embellishment.

For anyone out there who’s even remotely a pageant fan, then you know what’s coming up Sunday night…Miss Universe! I’ll be heading to a Miss U viewing party with my Miss Hawaii USA family and I’m working on my predictions as we speak. I haven’t yet designed my gown that I’ll be wearing to compete in Miss USA, and I’ll be paying close attention for some major gown inspiration. Let me know in the comments if you have any suggestions on style and color too. Hope you’re having an amazing weekend…XOXO.

Lace Lover

The Aloha Babe

Allow me introduce you to one of my favorite lace dresses in my closet. I’m particularly in love with it because its length super versatile for anything from a lunch with friends to a wedding. I’m not seeing this particular dress online anymore, but I’ve compiled some of my favorite lace looks in the links below.

Since I’ve come back from Tokyo I’ve been crazy busy catching up on work, recovering from a cold, making Miss Hawaii appearances and trying to get back on my blogging grind that I haven’t had much time for myself SO today I’m having some me time with a massage and a salt scrub. I’ve been told by friends that salt scrubs are amazing so I don’t know why I’m kind of nervous! Hope you’re all having a great week.

Tiered Pony

Since I work from home (I’m a senior account executive at a PR firm) I’m not in workwear 5 days a week, so when I do get to dress up for meetings or work lunches I like to have fun with it. Usually I keep it clean and simple with minimal, no-fuss jewelry as pictured here. My sister and I have been playing around with different hairstyles seen in magazines and I fell in love with this tiered pony tail. Best of all? So easy! Just put your hair in a pony tail, wrap the elastic with a small, 1/4 inch section of hair from the underside of the hair and pin it with a bobby pin. tease the top of the ponytail with a comb, tie with an elastic, wrap, and repeat as long as your hair is. Keep hairspray handy to tame flyways. If you have any hair tutorials you want to see on my blog, let me know in the comments or reach out to me on Instagram @emma_wo.

Tokyo Photo Diary

I just got back from Tokyo this week and there’s something about that city that makes me love visiting every single time. Amazing food, out of this world shopping, and endless amounts of sights to see and streets to wander. During this visit it was crazy cold (around 30 degrees at night), which I realize isn’t too bad but for me being used to Hawaii weather, it took about 10 layers plus hand warmers to even get me outside. Last time I was in Tokyo it was just me and Holden, but this time we went with four other friends and rented a (tiny) apartment so we could all stay together…so much fun. I mentioned earlier this year that one of my new year’s resolutions was to visit a new country, so I’m taking recommendations! Let me know in the comments if you have any suggestions for me.

One Piece Wonder

You know those mornings when you’ve snoozed the alarm one too many times and have no time to pick out an outfit? For me that was a couple days ago, so I beelined straight for my jumpsuits hanging in the closet. In my opinion jumpsuits are the perfect way to relinquish all sartorial decision-making and yet still look totally put together. Scroll down for a few more jumpsuits I’m loving right now.

As I mentioned earlier this week, I’m off to Tokyo tomorrow for a quick vacation with Holden and four other friends so I’m in crazy packing mode. I just checked the weather and it’s supposed to be in the low 30s at night, so I’m throwing as many sweaters and scarves in my suitcase as I can fit. If you have any cold-weather packing tips for me, let me know in the comments! XOXO

New Year’s Resolutions

fashion fashion blog hawaiiHappy New Year everyone! Here’s a quick snapshot of my 2014 in photos. From taking a eurotrip with Holden for my birthday in March to winning the Miss Hawaii USA pageant followed by a celebratory Vegas trip afterward and meeting my little baby nephew for the first time in November, it’s going to be a seriously tough year to top. I’m looking forward to an eventful 2015 including my upcoming trip to Tokyo next week, competing at Miss USA this summer, and lots more. I also know I’m in for a few challenges, including losing the holiday weight I’ve gained over the last couple of weeks. That brings me to my New Year’s resolutions for 2015:

Stay active: More than just losing the holiday weight, I want to stay healthy this year with at least 3-4 workouts a week. Also part of this resolution will be drinking more water. So important, and yet I somehow have trouble downing 8 cups a day. The struggle is real!

Visit a new country: Traveling is one of my favorite things to do, and I think it’s so important to experience as much culture as you can. So I put this on my list of resolutions, even though I don’t know exactly where I want to go. I’ve always wanted to visit Australia, fingers crossed.

Give someone a compliment every day: It’s always such a sweet surprise when a stranger or even a friend pays me a compliment. So this year, I want to pay someone a compliment every day, and hopefully make a few people smile in the process.

I want to know your 2015 resolutions…let me know in the comments! XOXO.

New Year’s Eve Three Ways

I can’t believe 2015 is just two days away! Whether you’re planning a cozy night in to watch the ball drop, ringing in the new year at a house party, or spending the night out on the town, a great outfit will make sure you end the year with a bang. This year I’ll be starting the night at my parents’ house with friends and family, then heading to The Modern hotel for a blowout party, then ending the night at home (as if finding one outfit wasn’t hard enough!). Here are the three outfits I’m wearing this year, plus fun easy braids to match by my sister Liza. The first is an easy house party look, the second a fun party dress outfit, and the third for a cozy night in. Hope you all have an amazing and safe New Year’s Eve!
