MOMENTS FROM MAUI

Swimsuit #2: Acacia lumahai top in foam // Mara Hoffman bottoms (similar)
Swimsuit #3: One Teaspoon eagles shadow bikini top // Acacia bottoms (similar) // For Love and Lemons skirt 

I remember four or five years ago, back when I just started having some disposable income, I took my first "adult" vacation to Maui. Meaning, my parents didn't pay or book my travel, I did it all by myself because I'm a grown up - haha! Ever since then, I've tried to make it out to Maui every year. It is seriously the ideal relaxation destination! Now that I've been to Maui several times, I don't need to worry about exploring the island, hitting up local hot spots, or experiencing everything the island has to offer. This time around my trip itinerary was very simple. Each day went a little something like this: wake up as late as possible, eat, go to the beach, eat, take a nap, eat again. Which is why basically all of my photos were taken on the beach in a swimsuit. By the time I put on some real clothes, it was way past sun down. I don't need to be wearing clothing on vacation anyways!

Once my brain has fully joined me back in the real world, I'll share my favorite Maui spots!

OFF THE SHOULDER

ASOS off the shoulder wrap sweater // Aritzia lace skirt // Mackage rubie bag // Joes Jeans boots 

While walking home from work today, I caught a sound bite of this conversation between two old men. They were talking about the weather (typical old person convo) and how sunny it's been lately. One old man excitedly stated that it has begun. The coats are coming off, soon pants will get shorter and shorter, sleeves will get shorter and shorter. It's basically his favorite time of the year. What a bunch of pervs, am I right?! 

The pervy old man does have a point. Slowly but surely I'm starting to shed my layers and show a little skin. Starting with my shoulders and shins, how scandalous! Off the shoulder tops and midi skirts are the perfect transitional pieces to, as they say, "Buy now, wear now (and later)."
