Sadly, I am no longer in Hawaii, waking up to freshly cut mango and papaya, listening to the waves gently crash into the beach. Instead, I am in the muggy East Coast and back to the daily grind. So in my last attempt to hold onto the islands, I’m sharing a few more pictures from my vacation. Similar to my previous resort wear post, this post features clothes that easily translate from resort wear to ready to wear, giving the clothes more currency.
Special thank you to Marissa for modeling and for being fabulous and to Kyle for lending his incredible photography skills. To see more of Kyle’s work go to kyleboynton.com.
This outfit is perfect for chilly Hawaii nights and also early fall evenings. I love the strong shoulders in this blouse and peek-a-boo back. I also aggressively ignore the no white after Labor Day rule.
