Today's Everyday Fashion: Hawaii

Aloha! If you follow on Instagram then you may know that I just returned from the island of Kauai in Hawaii. This was a very spontaneous trip - I had a free place to stay and randomly found inexpensive flights only two weeks ago! I spent most of the week in swim suits and cover ups (and I also didn't take a break from work), but these pictures are from my favorite day, and also my favorite outfits.

The first half was spent at Wailua Falls (picture below). You can drive to the falls and observe them from up high, but we heard a rumor that you could also hike down, despite the hazard/warning signs. It turned out to be a 173 foot nearly vertical hike down and I was covered in mud, but it was totally worth it. I would've worn more serious gear if I had known how rough the terrain is, but my boat shoes held up surprisingly well. After a day at the falls I cleaned up in a public bathroom and headed to the luau. This lavender tunic and white coral necklace were great for the occasion, which consisted of a walk in the botanical gardens, huge buffet dinner and a theater show which detailed the history of Hawaii through hula and other forms of dance. It was fascinating to learn about and take part in the Hawaiian culture.

This trip got me thinking about the fun places I've been in the last couple years and how my first time on an airplane was my senior year of high school. My love for travel has certainly grown with time and I cant wait to cross off more places on my bucket list. What's your favorite place you've been? If you could travel anywhere where would you go?
