Mahina Boutique Overalls & Baseball Hats

Another incredible piece from my favorite Hawaiian Boutique, Mahina. These cotton overalls are dying to come out of my closet for Spring and Summer. I'm desperately trying to pair them with sweaters and cardigans which has been working, for the most part. Today they've been paired with my Mariners cap, classic white tee and black pumps to help with my height. It's an easy and relaxed look, though I probably won't be seen at the grocery store in it. It's more of a Fri-yay attire.

Where to Eat on the North Shore, Hawaii

Coconut Shrimp & Mac Salad

We all know my undying love for food. When in Rome, you eat pasta. When in Paris, you drink your cappuccinos. When in Hawaii, you eat everything. There are certain places I always go to on the North Shore.

This year was particularly fun. We tried a ton of different and unique places to eat and drink from Haleiwa to Laie. We stopped at fruit stands and a bakery that blew our minds. There was a shrimp truck that wasn't worth the time or money and an incredible burger place known for bringing love, peace and family together. It was such an amazing food ride and we just rode the wave.

Denim Dress & Accessories ... Lots and Lots of Accessories

facing forward

If it's possible to own anymore accessories than I already do, I doubt it, than I will need a closet instead of a jewelry box. It's a love I shared with my belated Memére and therefore, I have a lot of pride in my collection. I collect jewelry and accessories from all over the world and locally at thrift stores. This past summer began my collection of amber necklaces which I find an excuse to wear at all cost. Though, very heavy, they are lovely and hold memories from my trip to Morocco.

Mahina Boutique Jumpsuit & Velvet Cardigan


For those who had it, I hope you had an amazing three day weekend. Mine consisted of getting caught up. On sleep, laundry, Olympics and exercising. Guys, there was so much laundry it was coming creeping out of my closet.

Hunter Green Dress and Floral Booties

Hello, gems. I don't know how I survived my first week back after my vacation. It seemed like the weekend would never get here but here we are and it feel so good to kick back. While I was on my trip, I rare sat down unless I was lounging at the beach. Even then I would get up and swim every 20 minutes or so. Being outside in the sunshine did a number on my health for the week. I'm so thankful for being blessed enough to even take a trip, never the less soak up that Vitamin D.

5 Ways to Live Like a Local in Oahu, Hawaii


Though not a Hawaiian local permanently, my heart is always with the land and the people who resign on the islands.  For some reason my obsession with the tropical climate, surfer style and Aloha vibes came on strongly when I was in my teens. Back when everyone wore puka shells and JT had ramen hair. My first trip was for a High School Band competition. It took two years of hoarding my allowance money, baby sitting savings and football concession stand raising. I remember the trip well enough to tell you: I didn't listen to our chaperones, stuck to the tourist attractions and I was burnt to a crisp by day 2. Above all, I remember paradise.

Aloha, darlings. I'm back from vacation with a darker tan than intended. I spent every single waking moment in the sun. It was like being greeted by a dear old friend, that sun of mine. I know some of you might follow me on my personal IG. If you do, you've seen some of the insane hikes that I did and all of the beach time I got to have.
