Fall Beach Days

IMG_0365Swimsuit: S.I.E Swim top and bottom c/o // Bangle: Kiele

Fall beach days are some of the best days. The weather is finally cooling off here in Hawaii so it’s perfect for laying on the beach for a few hours and I’m more than excited about that because I’ve got lots of new swimsuits to show you guys! This one’s from a local swimsuit company and designer S.I.E Swim and I’m so in love with their whole collection. All of their designs are surf-inspired and just effortlessly cool. Check out the collection here.

Tonight I’m off to dinner with one of my closest friends from elementary and high school and I go bananas every time she comes home. I love how there are just some friends that you don’t necessarily see all the time but when you’re together it feels like no time has passed. That’s her. Hope you all have an amazing Thursday!

Shadow Play

Dress: Wonderland Honolulu c/o // Jacket: Blank NYC // Clutch: She + Lo // Sunnies: Quay Australia // Heels: Charlotte Russe

I’m calling it now — one of my fall outfit staples is going to be a leather jacket thrown over a maxi dress. It’s just such an easy outfit to put together and perfect for Hawaii where it’s hot outside and freezing inside (at least for me). This maxi is from a company called Wonderland Honolulu that was started right here in Honolulu. The company started at local vendor markets selling vintage pieces and denim that they distressed and dyed by hand and is now creating their own designs out of Los Angeles. Check out their whole collection here — hope you love it was much as I do! XOXO

70s Vibes

When life gets hectic, sometimes it’s nice to keep your style nice and easy. Today I put together my take on jeans and a T-shirt by pairing these flared denim jeans (my favorite for this season) with my project social lace-up shirt which is perfectly lightweight for wearing in warm temps. I always feel a 70s vibe when I throw on flared jeans, so I decided to wear my most retro pair of shades and went vintage with my bag too. This bag is extra special to me because it’s my late grandmother’s so it’s really nice to be able to take a (fashionable) memory of her with me whenever I wear it. XOXO

Blue Skies


Swimsuit: Cielo Rosso top and bottoms c/o // Sunnies: Ray Ban // Earrings: Bauble Bar (similar here)

This weekend I had the chance to participate in the Macy’s Fashion Front Row fashion show and seriously had the best time. I also ended up buying two pieces straight from the show because I couldn’t help myself…surprise surprise! Afterward, my sister and I went shopping, then ordered pizza and a movie and had a little girls night since Holden is still on his ‘guys’ trip in Europe. Even though it was a crazy weekend, I did manage to sneak in some beach time and wore my new Cielo Rosso swimwear.

The best part about this line is that it’s designed to take you from one activity to the next, whether you want to lay out at the beach, surf, do some stand-up paddle boarding, or even yoga. Basically I love that you can do whatever you want in this swimsuit without the fear of a wardrobe malfunction! Check out the rest of Cielo Rosso’s swimsuit and activewear line here…my other favorites are the keyhole one piece and the cheeky scrunch bottoms.
