Holy Chic Sequins!

I feel like these are the definition of Party Pants. They’re so fun! And of course, the best part is that I got them for $15! Booyah! So I’m really having a party! This is one of those outfits that you can throw on in 5 seconds, but it actually looks like you thought about getting ready that morning. It’s just a tee and basically stretchy leggings. I put on heels because the color makes the outfit pop just that much more.

Hawaii Post 1

As most of my readers already know from my instagram and a few of my outfit posts, I went to Hawaii back in August with my family to drop my brother off for his freshman year of college. I went to BYU-H for a little bit after my freshman year and I absolutely loved it. He is already, as to be expected…who wouldn’t want to live in Hawaii? Anyway, I haven’t gotten around to posting about the trip yet, so I figured I had to soon! Here we go!

One of the days we went kayaking and got to swim with dolphins out in the wild. It was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done. There were probably over 25-30 dolphins swimming around us for over an hour. They had little babies and they were the cutest little things I have ever seen. You could hear them squeaking and they would jump out of the water and flip around. I wish we had a go-pro with us so we could have got it on tape.

If you are going out to Oahu make sure you do something like this because it was one of the most fun things I’ve done in the 4 times I’ve been to Hawaii on vacation. It’s just a small group of people (for us it was just our family and the guides), not a big boat with tons of people that are going to scare the animals away. We also saw turtles, fish, and more sea ‘creatures’ if you will.

HI 7

This is the best picture I have of the dolphins 🙁 but it kind of gives you an idea of how many there were. HI 10HI 14HI 25HI 17HI 19HI 21HI 27We obviously had to make a stop at the Dole Plantation for the Frozen Yogurt. It’s to die for. We went twice.
HI 32…and Matsumoto’s. Duh. You can’t not go here. Although…I will tell you a secret. Angel’s (in the shopping center where the grocery store is in Laie) is the best place to go for shaved ice. Get the Macadamia Nut ice cream inside, with the sweetened condensed milk and whipped creme on top 🙂
HI 34HI 49HI 51

Taylor and I got ‘Tiny Pineys’. He’s going to kill me for posting this.
HI 37

Another recommendation if you find yourself on the north shore is Shark’s Cove Grill. It’s just a food truck, but it’s one of my favorite places. I ate there when I lived out there 8 years ago and it was a must stop for me going back. I kept asking if we could eat there like every night. (P.S. I love the fish sandwich!)HI 62HI 58

‘Classic’ from Ily Couture

If you haven’t heard of Ily Couture yet, you definitely need to visit their site. They have the cutest jewelry and the most comfortable, yet fashionable sweatshirts and tees! I think I wore this sweatshirt every day for about two weeks when I got it. I love the simplicity, but I think my favorite part is how soft it is inside, which you guys can’t see, so you’ll have to take my word for it. I paired it with one of their necklaces also to dress up the look a little more. I loved the result. Let me know how you guys like it!

Sweatshirt – Ily Couture; Jeans -7 for All Mankind; Shoes – Kate Spade; Necklace – Ily Couture; Rings – David Yurman, Stella & Dot, B.P. Nordstrom.

Elle from Living in Color found the perfect way to incorporate fall fashion while beating the heat by pairing camo skinnies and leopard pumps. We love how the peplum top adds a little feminine touch.IMG_1093-670x1024

Kristin of Wild One Forever‘s nude leather skirt is such a fab find for fall. We love how she paired it with black. And how about that necklace?! And those shoes?! Swoon.


We love how Fonda of Savvy Southern Chic transitioned from summer to fall by pairing orange shorts with classic black and white stripes. The leopard flats and statement necklace added the perfect touch.

Here is another transition outfit for you though. A super light and short sleeve sweatshirt with some booties. I loved this sweatshirt because I’m really loving studs this year. I also this the graphic is fun too. What trends are you guys loving this fall?


Top – Max & Mia; Jeans – Gap; Booties – Joe’s; Bag – Rebecca Minkoff; Watch – Marc by Marc Jacobs; Bracelets – Treads by The Shine Project, Threads by The Shine Project, Kris Nations; Rings – Stella & Dot, American Eagle, B.P.
