    Diamond Head

    Romper: Old style from The Butik (very similar here) // Clutch: Samudra // Sandals: Sam Edelman (similar here) // Lips: Too Faced Melted in Berry

    Every time I go to the beach these days I always ask myself why I don’t come more often. I think it’s because I live in Hawaii and I might be taking it for granted, but I think I’m going to make it my goal this summer to go at least once a week and just soak it up. Since it was both hot and windy this day I decided on a short, loose romper and a fishtail bun (just a regular fishtail braid, then swirled around like a cinnabon and pinned with bobbies). Perfect for a beach day! I’ve carried around Samudra clutches for years because even while I was in college and living on the mainland they used to remind me of home. I use them for beach days, going out, and even inside of my huge purses or tote bags to help me organize my things. A bunch of them are linked at the bottom of this post too. I hope you’re all having an amazing Thursday.

    1. Topshop Knitted Fluffy Crop Romper, $60

    2. J Crew Mixed Gems Bracelet, $68

    3. NARS Lipstick – Belle de Jour, $26

    4. Loeffler Randall Tote, $450

    5. Topshop Black Faux Leather Shorts, $68

    6. Jeffrey Campbell Idina Bootie, $168

    I’m loving the cozy sweaters on the rack for early Spring, but in Hawaii the sweaters-jeans-and-cute-boots just doesn’t make as much sense as I’d like. So I’ve made it my mission to keep sweaters in the mix by pairing them with fun shorts and cutout booties. Hope you all had a nice long weekend!

    Dress: Fighting Eel / Bag: Chloé / Heels: Zara / Bracelets: J. Crew, House of Harlow & Bauble Bar

    You know when you find a song you love and listen to it on repeat every day until it eventually goes out of style? I have a feeling a similar king of thing is going down with me and this dress. There’s just not much you can’t wear it to, or with — chunky jewelry, maybe a bright bag for a pop of color or even with tights on colder nights. Special thanks to my boyfriend for the dress! Hope you all have a nice long weekend — mine will be filled with friends, farmers markets, and hopefully seeing American Hustle (finally!).

    Best of Golden Globes 2014

    GG1Awards season is finally here and I don’t know about you but I’m pretty sure I enjoy the red carpet portion of award shows much more than the shows themselves. There’s something about the anticipation of seeing what my favorite actors and actresses will wear, the unexpected pleasant surprise gowns, and the ‘what was she wearing’ gowns too. Here are my favorites…what were yours?

    LEATHER LOVE

    Sweater: Vince / Shorts and Clutch: F21 / Watch: Michael Kors / Necklace: Stella & Dot / Sunnies: Ray Ban / Sandals: Isabel Marant

    Sometimes I just feel like keeping it casual. In fact, I think this might be the first time I haven’t worn heels in one of my posts. I absolutely love this sweater because it finds that perfect mix of classic and edgy, and is super-soft! Off to work now, hope you all have a wonderful Thursday.

    TRUE COLORS

    Top: F21 / Skirt & Necklace: Express / Heels: Saint Laurent / Watch: Michael Kors / Sunnies: Karen Walker

    It’s been a little rainy the past few days, so today I decided to throw a pop of color into the mix. I love when clothing incorporates subtle surprises like cutouts and mesh panels, and that’s why my favorite part about this top is the sheer panel on the back. And since I paired two solid colors up top, I chose a pair of heels that had a little more detail. These Saint Laurent heels are from a few years ago, but I love rediscovering old favorites like these that somehow get lost in the chaos that is my closet.

    BLACKOUT

    Jumpsuit: Rules of Etiquette / Clutch: Michael Kors / Heels: Schutz / Necklaces: J. Crew & Bauble Bar

    What’s not to love about jumpsuits? They’re chic, comfortable, and super easy to throw on without a whole lot of matching to do (especially when they come in my favorite color…black!). I paired mine with metallic gold lace-up booties, layered necklaces and a clutch to go out to a few New Year’s parties. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    GO FOR GOLD

    Top: Joie / Shorts and Heels: F21, heels here / Necklace and Bangle: Bauble Bar

    Happy New Year everyone! My NYE began with a few family parties, then we went out to a Speakeasy-themed party in Waikiki. I’ve been feeling a little under the weather lately, so I kept it to just one glass of champagne and we headed home around 12:15! I decided to go for gold in my New Year’s Eve look this year, rocking these sequin F21 shorts and metallic gold pumps for a fun an easy look. I bought these pumps with NYE in mind, but I’m actually pretty excited to wear them all year long — I can already picture them toned down with jeans and a slouchy T-shirt or dressed up with any little black dress. Wishing you all a fabulous start to 2014.
