Earlier this year I traveled to Hawaii to attend my cousin's wedding. I travelled light, and packed 2 formal dresses, 2 bikinis; and a few versatile shorts, t-shirts and skirts for the rest of the trip.
I wasn't looking to make much of a fashion statement on this trip, but inspired by its tropical beauty, I left Hawaii with some ideas for a summer wardrobe:
1. never enough blue
Blue never stood out to me more than it did then -- the sky and the ocean provided a vibrant backdrop for every tropical view. After looking back on photos from the trip, I find blue gives just the right amount of pop without being offensive in brighter surroundings.
2. let the wind in.
It was a pleasantly windy trip. Normally I am not a big fan of wind, as I am used to the frosty form it takes during the New England winter. However in the hot climate, I welcomed the warm hug of the breeze.
Luckily for me, I'm going back to Hawaii this Saturday for another destination wedding! And this time, I've loaded up on the blues and loose flowy pieces. I plan to be even more relaxed and stylish as I adventure through paradise again. If the weather holds up, I'm looking forwards to sharing pictures with you all soon.
