Hawaiian Tropics Fashion

I am sooooooo excited for my vacation to Hawaii that I’m leaving for tomorrow, thanks to my little brother’s decision to go out there for school this fall. My family is making a trip out of it to drop him off for college. I went out there for a little bit during college and absolutely loved it, so I’m really excited for him. He will be playing on the BYU Hawaii soccer team too! Congrats Taylor!

So…of course I had to do some trip and outfit planning. What would I wear on a tropical vacation? Ummm…flamingos, flowers, pineapples, and bold prints came to mind right away. I would definitely pair them with some bangles and strappy sandals for a fun, but causal feel.

While these prints may be bold, your state of mind will be completely relaxed as you lounge on the beach and enjoy the islands!

Black and White Joie Sweater and Sport Shorts

I found the best shorts ever at Forever 21 this last weekend. I’m not sure if they’re just supposed to be for jogging or whatever, but I decided to wear them with an outfit, because they are so comfortable and silky, so what they heck right? I bought a couple colors, because they are also only $13! Love it! So I think I’m going to wear them to the beach, casually, and dressed up. You should go get some because they have them in this basic black, but also a bunch of fun bright colors!

Tolani Tunic Dress

The lake is one of our favorite spots at the cabin. We hike around it, we fish, and my Grandpa used to tell us the scariest stories about Mrs. Marchant who is buried under the lake. You can see the cross the covers her grave just around the side of the lake if you look closely. I seriously used to have nightmares because he would scare us so bad. Even so, we still come down every year because it’s “the lake”. One year a moose swam right past my dad in his floatie and ran up the hill on the other side. I’m also pretty sure we haven’t gone a year without someone falling in or getting pushed in. P.S. It’s freezing. (Not fun!)

You may or may not remember this print from my beach cover up that I wore in Carlsbad…I bought this dress a while ago at Anthropologie and was waiting for it to get warm enough to wear. Then I found the cover up and was obsessed (the elephants of course)…when it came i the mail I was like, O this looks familiar…yeah that happened, but I love them so much I just decided to keep both of them. They’re different enough and for totally different situations right?

Summer Shorts

I love the summer, because I really hate wearing pants. I hate jeans. I mean I like the way they look, but I HATE being uncomfortable and shorts are my favorite thing in the world. I need to move somewhere that I can wear them year round. I will literally wear shorts to my freezing cold office and just bring a blanket because I would so much rather do that. I do however rather enjoy jeans shorts, and that is most likely what you will catch me in on a day to day basis during the warm months. BUT more so I cannot get over how many cute printed and colorful shorts there are out there right now. So here are some fabulous shorts I found searching around for summer!
