Everyday Retro

I love, love, love these 40s inspired Mary Janes I purchased from ModCloth a while back. Not only are they super cute but they are incredibly comfortable. I usually pair them with a simple pencil skirt but they go with pretty much anything. They add a special flair of vintage style to an otherwise ordinary outfit. There is something about these classic heels that get me excited. These particular ones seem to be out of stock but […]

Stripes and Slouch Wedges

Introducing a simple striped mini jersey dress paired with an oversized button-up and my thigh-high slouch wedge boots. I love this balance as it shows just the right amount of skin. Trying to keep it kinda classy folks, even in the land of bikinis over here. Include a long statement necklace to bring it to the next level style-wise.

As I was looking at my two chosen flavors I noticed that they kinds matched my look. They say don’t “eat with your eyes” but in this case it […]

Haleiwa Sail

Ditch the crowded, Waikiki catamarans and check out this North Shore option. Laid-back, no frills, and BYOB. Pure relaxation with friendly locals. I was able to get a deal, pretty much 2 for 1 on LivingSocial. The first sail we booked was cancelled but we were easily able to rebook. (Not too much of an issue for us because we live here.) We were able to rebook for the following weekend. The launch area was pretty […]

Aloha Friday

Simple, classic, comfy. I find myself gravitating towards more and more towards relaxed pieces that I can mix and match. Jean crops, relaxed worn solid tee layered with some simple jewelry. Pair this look with some basic flats and a brighter colored, oversized clutch and you’ve got a look! I love this for weekend errands or sometimes even on an Aloha Friday at the office. Shop the look here.     Aloha Friday Casual Chic […]
