    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.

    BLACK & WHITE

    Top: BCBG / Sunnies: Ray Ban / Bag: Louis Vuitton / Jeans: Current/Elliot / Heels: Sam Edelman

    There’s nothing quite like the classic combination of black and white — but I had to give it a fun twist, of course, with my mirrored blue Ray Bans. My parents gave me this lovely BCBG top for Christmas and I absolutely love it because it will go with everything — colored jeans, printed shorts, neon bags, you name it. What did you all get for Christmas? Let me know on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

    SEEING RED

    Blouse: Equipment / Shorts: Nameless / Sunnies: Karen Walker / Clutch and Heels: F21

    For what seems like years now I’ve been lusting over Equipment blouses, and I finally got my first for Christmas this year. I’m excited about it for two reasons — one, they’re pretty effortlessly chic and go with anything, and two, it nicely fulfills my New Year’s resolution of wearing more color. Read this post and more of my thoughts on Kakaako.com. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

    CHRISTMAS 2013

    Twas a great Christmas this year, with lots of family time, amazing food, and awesome presents. Plus, I don’t have work today so I got to stay up late last night decorating my gingerbread house and watching Love Actually. A perfect Christmas. How did you celebrate this year?

    BEHIND THE SCENES: THE ALOHA BABE X TIFFANY & CO.

    Tiffany & Co. is one of the few places that still makes me feel like a kid in a candy store each time I walk through its pretty silver doors. So you can imagine how excited I was when they told me they had a Christmas present for me this year. When I went to pick it up they let me try on their new Atlas collection, a sophisticated line of necklaces, pendants, earrings, bangles and rings in a variety of metals including 18K yellow, rose or white gold and sterling silver with diamonds. I was sad when I had to take off the jewelry, but so grateful that I was gifted with a deliciously chic Atlas bar bracelet all wrapped up in their iconic Tiffany Blue Box. But don’t take my word for it, view the whole collection for yourself here. These are a few of the behind the scenes photos, and I’ll be sure to post a few more later this week. Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas!
