Ahola guys! So very excited to be finally sharing some photos from my Hawaii trip this past spring! I have so many amazing photos to post but not enough time in the day to edit it all, ha! But no worries, they are slowly coming along and I would really like to put together a “Maui Instagram – Worthy” guide in the near future.
There’s no denying that these colorful surfboards make a striking backdrop – perfect for that insta shot! They were captured in Paia, a little beach town on the northern shore of Maui. Some of the biggest waves can be found here, making it a surfer’s paradise. Aside from that, it’s a pretty laid-back hippie town that attracts people from all over. This vibrant hostel in town was on the road to Hana. When I first saw the eye-catching rainbow fence, I instantly fell in love with the scenery. Composed of neatly lined surfboards, the owner here definitely knew a thing or two about curb appeal. Because I mean – who could resist a fun photo opportunity?! Ha! Well more Hawaii photos to come in the following weeks so be sure to check back! ~b
Happy July! Here are my final photos from my trip to Mexico. Though, a pretty short trip overall. I was lucky enough to be able to fit so many activities in my schedule. Last on my list was to see the iconic Arch of Cabo San Lucas before I left, so that’s exactly what my father and I did! It’s a distinctive rock formation that marks that spot where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. We went on a yacht boat excursion in the evening to see it and to also watch the sunset. The views at sea were simply breathtaking and I thought it was the perfect way to end the trip! ~b
Happy Monday guys! I recently did some updates on my blog over the weekend. Hopefully, you were able to spot some of the differences! I upgraded from my free plan so now I have much more control over everything (yay!).
As for today’s post – just a quick easy look for a day at the beach! Sullivan’s Island is one of the popular beaches in Charleston. Unlike other touristy attractions around the area, I have always found this place to be extremely peaceful. The wide stretch of flat sand makes it ideal for long walks and it’s also the perfect location to watch the sunset. For my outfit, I wore a basic black tank with a pair of denim shorts. My oversized striped tote bag is fitting for hauling around all my beach necessity – like a good book, towel, and sunscreen. Overall, my look is beyond casual but that’s what makes it great for the beach! ~b
With Mother’s Day coming up in a few short weeks, I wanted to post a look inspired by my beautiful mother! My mom has always been and remains a strong role model in my life. I know I wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for all of her support! Honestly, she’s the absolute best. 🙂
Below are just a few of my favorite throwback pics. of her. I love how these images showcase her effortless classical style. She was never the one to wear extravagant flashy outfits to stand apart in a crowd and that’s what I love about her clothing choices. My mother’s understated elegance was always fashionableall on its own.
For my inspired styled outfit, I wanted to keep it simple and sophisticated – just like my mom. I opted for a timeless black blazer, which I believe is a must-have staple in every girl’s wardrobe. It’s super versatile and instantly pulls a look together. The red, white, and blue striped top was borrowed from my mom’s closet. I think it has a retro classic 90’s vibe to it. I paired the shirt with white neutral jeans to keep it crisp and clean. & To fully finish off the whole look, a quick swipe of red lipstick always adds a pinch of chic to any outfit! ~b
Hi! Earlier this week, I mentioned that I visited Savannah, Georgia for my birthday weekend. I’m old-school at heart, so it’s no surprise that I instantly fell in love with the city’s character and charm. I had a great time exploring the historic districts and taking a stroll through the various squares. The flourishing florals, Spanish-moss draped trees, and classical architecture made Savannah’s scenery picture-perfect. I felt like I was taking a step back in time!
When I was completely worn out from all the walking, I ventured to beautiful Forsyth Park to relax and enjoy the outdoors. It’s easily the best place to have a picnic or people watch! After some time, the sun started to set and it was time for dinner. Although there were so many amazing options to choose from, I decided to eat at the Flying Monk Noodle Bar because of its’ great reviews. I am so glad that I did because the meal did not disappoint! It was sooo good and I highly recommend eating there if you are ever in the area! For dessert, I went to the popular Leopold’s Ice Cream shop. It’s definitely the best ice cream on the block and a must-do in Savannah! The store’s queue line is usually extremely long, but it is very well worth the wait. I swear there’s something magical in the ice cream that makes you come back for more! I was there twice during my visit. 🙂 My favorite flavors were lemon custard and honey almond cream. Mmmm..yum! Anywho, that’s all for this post. Hope you all have a great rest of your week and talk to ya soon! ~b
