INSANELY BEAUTIFUL

Hello lovlies

The title I use in this post describes all the natural beauty Oahu has to offer.

I had high expectations for the day tour I booked to see Oahu and it did not disappoint. Since I was in Oahu for such a short period of time, a tour worked as it allows you to get a beautiful glimpse of the island while bookmarking all the many places to see more of. The next time and there will be a next time, I’ll be sure to hire a car and go see all my favourite scenic spots.

Love this post if you love these amazing photographs.

THE GOOD LIFE

Hello gorgeous

Since I have committed to not purchasing any new clothing this year, I packed a little heavier than usual for my trip to Hawaii.

That said my luggage was full of comfortable items that I knew I would have to wear over and over again during this trip. So if you notice some clothes overlapping in my next few posts it’s just me being creative with what was in my luggage.

On this very day, my friend and I headed to the Waikele Premium outlet for some bargain shopping. I have to say I found it to be quite underwhelming but managed to score some cute items for my little girl. The Godiva shop there is just devine and I couldn’t help but indulge in a cone full of strawberries dipped in dark chocolate. Certainly a must go to place for all travellers.

Post shopping we grabbed a bite and drink, then spent the late afternoon relaxing on Waikiki beach. If this could be a part of my life everyday I would be completely satisfied.

SNAPPED

Snaps are quickly taken before I head off to work. On days like today it’s still dark out so unfortunately the lighting has worked against the mobile phone photography.

I’ve started the week with my boots over some sporty trousers with leather look zipper pockets. A huge plus about these trousers is that they have an elasticated waist. This was coupled with a simple royal blue top, tailored blazer and long strap vintage bag.

Once again thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead.

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.

GREEN IS GOOD

This week has been all about adding pops of colour to my outfits. Today it’s a striking emerald green wrap blouse.

I have had all these items for years however have never worn them in this combination. The look definitely isn’t anything groundbreaking.  Although it just goes to show much I use to shop for new items rather then mixing and matching what I already own.

You will also notice the outfit is on the lady like side of the table. Certainly not I look I thought to pull of with this hair cut but I think I have done just fine.

INTO THE BLUE

 

Hello lovelies,

I decided to stick with the blue theme for work this week. I own so many black clothes so Incorporating a blue theme  has made me realise how much coloured items I do own. This outfit is definitely another take on the preppy look.

FLOWER POWER

73 days into my NY’s resolution

Flower Power

I completely agree!  The amount of dresses I own is absolutely ridiculous. So much so that I could make this week a theme about midi floral dresses, which I found perfect for our scorching ‘summer’ heat.

I do gravitate to gorgeous flowy floral dresses as I find they are always fashionably stylish, comfortable and you can get away with having it as your 9-5 look. With the busy prints, I decided to pair the dresses with some simple shoes and jewellery. If styled correctly, you can definitely get away with pairing these dresses with bolder shoes and more accessories. I also find these dresses versatile enough to wear in winter with some tights under your favourite coat.

You can find some beautiful floral numbers herehere and here. Enjoy and I hope that you liked this weeks post.
