These dreamy Hawaiian photos were taken back in February at The Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki the day after Mike + I got engaged. I was in engaged bliss, excited for what’s ahead, enjoying the island breeze and looking forward to wedding planning, never thinking that COVID would get to the US or let alone impact daily life the way it has. It’s so weird to be living in this time where there is so much uncertainty, inability to really plan ahead, travel or know what’s to come.
Hawaii is one of the most gorgeous places, I am dreaming of going back for our honeymoon which still seems so far away given we are still up in the air about our wedding still happening in May of 2021 with COVID restrictions. It’s been tough, tough to know what to do, tough to know how to plan + tough to think back on simpler times.
I think we all want a sense of normalcy which is so hard to have right now, so I decided to distract myself with reminiscing of this past trip + trying to dream of where I want to travel to next once things resume to normal!
This tropical look was one of my favorites from my Hawaii trip since then I blended in with the Palm Trees haha :p I scored this dress on Amazon for under $50 + this bag is also an Amazon find – both are perfect for any tropical vacays or adventures.
This is how I am going to start thinking as we continue to navigate this pandemic…when + where will I get to wear this tropical look again. When there are no more masks, no more fears of catching the virus, no more restrictions on traveling, going out to eat, getting nails + hair done etc.
Ya’ll I am so excited to be heading to Hawaii this weekend for the first time ever! We both have never been to Hawaii and this will be such a different type of vacation for us because typically we just head to the theme parks at Disney World each year for our anniversary + my birthday but this year my boo wanted to do something different and actually relax on vacation so Hawaii here we come!
We are heading to Disney’s Aulani Resort + I can’t wait to visit somewhere new, soak up some sun + embrace a little R+R with my boo so I wanted to share what I’ll be packing along on my trip ♥
I hope ya’ll are having a fun weekend so far! I kicked mine off yesterday with the Beachwaver team in Huntington Beach for the US Open of Surfing + it was a BLAST! First off I LOVE the Beachwaver, so to meet the team was amazing + then it was my first time to Huntington Beach, let alone to a surfing competition, safe to say it was a pretty fun Fri-yay! The rest of my weekend is going to be spent shooting content – life of a blogger haha :p But to kick off the weekend I wanted to share one of my favorite summer looks as of late, this Palm Print Dress from Kas New York!
I LIVE for a brightly colored dress with a fun print + this Kas New York dress fits the bill perfectly! I love the palm leaf print + tropical vibe, it’s the ultimate summer dress. While I dressed it up here with heels, I wear it all the time with sandals…whether it’s to the beach or brunch, this dress is perfect to where anytime, anywhere!
My go to shoes for summer have been these white ankle strap heels. They are classy, sassy + match with everything…plus these ones are pretty comfortable.
The Cult Gaia Ark Bag has been a hot trend for a second year in a row now so I had to get one. Honestly this bag has so much room + adds a vacation feel to any look.
ICMYI – Festival Season shopping is in full swing with Coachella just weeks away so I wanted to share one of my favorite trends I LOVE wearing out in Palm Desert and that is…yup, you guessed it – PALM TREES + PALM PRINT! I mean seriously, who doesn’t love palm print for summer anyway but when in Palm Springs, I think palm trees + palm print on your clothing is kinda a requirement, no? :p
Whether you are heading to the festival, lounging by the pool or off to some parties (or hey maybe you are just chillin’ at home + love some desert vibes)…these picks are perfect to keep you cool + stylish in the desert heat all weekend long!
