STYLE STORY: HAWAII BLUES


Aloha! Have you ever been to a place called...Hawaii?

I really hope your answer is "yes"! If you follow me on Instagram, you may know that I was lucky enough to do a little traveling to this place...

...and it was amazing! I can go on and on about it, but I'm going to save that for a later post after I have a chance to really savor all the special moments of my vacation. I've missed you and wanted to drop by and share one of my vacation looks with a vacation packing tip.

When planning outfits for vacations, I always pack some blue pieces. It's a color that easily pairs with every other color which is ideal for when you are trying to fit everything in one luggage with extra room to do some shopping! And since I wanted a summery look, I chose light blue shorts to pair with a few tops. For this outfit, I chose to place an emphasis on the blues, and chose a mixed-patterned flowy top to go with the shorts.

  8. I can't count the number of times that my mom has been to hawaii but I have never been :( I really, really want to go (except for the 6 hour+ flight from Massachusetts!) .
    my spring and summer wardrobe is filled, I mean FILLED, with these types of blues, turquoises, etc. I'm blonde and fair skinned so I love how they look on me. I was also taught a little trick that this color will bring out the tan color of anyone's skin better than any other color! But it is my fave color also.
    I love your top!

    1. I was in the same boat! My parents have been multiple times before they finally decided to take us ;-) The flight isn't bad. I think the excitement of going to Hawaii makes up for it!
      So glad you found colors that work for you! Thanks for stopping by, Caitlyn :)
