BEGINS IN PARADISE

Hello lovelies

Picture this. My girlfriend and I leave Australia for Hawaii at 1.30pm on Friday and arrive in Honolulu at 8.00 am on Friday.

It was exciting that we had gained a whole day but most of all we were all smiles about the warm weather which was such a contrast from what we left back at home. Besides that, the beach was so close to our hotel we could smell it. All we wanted to do was make the most of it but the exhausting flight got the better of us. So after a fortunate early hotel check in, we grabbed a bite to eat then headed straight back to the hotel for a good snooze.

Several hours later we freshened up and decided to head out and do some exploring down the main strip in Waikiki. I was so glad to be wearing Summer gear again. I wore a slip on colourful mini dress under a grey dip back top for a little modesty. As for my boots, it was one of the two pairs of shoes I had packed for my trip and I practically lived in them.

Waikiki is just beautiful. The beach, plants, weather had made me feel like I was truly in paradise and the insane amount of shopping there is to do there is absolutely no myth either. Aside from all the commercial shops there’s also the International Market Place where you can purchase some local souvenirs and gifts. Then there’s the ABC stores on every corner stocking all kinds of nik naks from food to clothing to cosmetics.

That evening I slipped over my mini  dress a sheer short sleeve shirt and blazer, then we headed to the Beach House Restaurant in Ala Moana Surfrider resort for a pre dinner cocktail before going to the well renowned Roys restaurant for dinner. I had the vegan set menu option and was so full afterwards that you could roll me home. As you can imagine we were absolutely spent by the time the day was over and couldn’t wait to hit the sheets so off we went back to the hotel.

Its day 3 of this weeks 1 item, 4 ways challenge and there is quite a bit of activity occurring in the office today, so I have opted for comfortable clothes and shoes. The simple details in this outfit provide it with a point of difference. From the cut of the top, to the pocket zip details on the trousers, to the bows on my shoes to the exquisite vintage brooch.
