I know that summer is basically over, but I have to talk about a couple of my favorite swimsuit trends of summer 2016.

My favorite swimsuit this summer, hands down, is my interchangeable suit from Beach Gal Swimwear! Their unique suits, in my opinion, are genius! They are really high quality, come in great colors, and have over eight beaded attachments for your tops and bottoms to choose from! Being in Maui for seven days and spending almost all of my time at the beach and the pool it was awesome to get more than one look out my bikini! Each swimsuit is easily designed to mix and match for any occasion, mood, or festivity! Who doesn’t love options?!

One of the biggest summer trends was one piece Swimsuits! I LOVE this white one from Forever 21! It was great for hanging out by pool, and so easy to just throw on a pair of shorts for running back to our room, or going to grab a quick lunch!

While in Maui we stayed at the Honua Kai Resort and Spa on Kaanapali beach. It was a beautiful resort! They have so many different pools and hot tubs and it’s great if you are staying with kiddos! Our room had a great kitchen for extended stays! If you are wanting to save money I recommend stopping by Costco for groceries to avoid eating out for every meal. We mostly ate at Duke’s Beach House at our resort for the simple fact that the food and service was AMAZING! I highly recommend eating there if you are in the area. The one thing we did not make in our room was coffee! The coffee everywhere is way too good! We loved the Cafe across the street, Java Jazz, and Bad Ass Coffee! My biggest “complaint” about our room was the lighting in the bathroom! Don’t laugh! I basically was in the dark (pun intended) about how I looked everyday!

It really was one of the best trips ever for me! Lounging with my husband and having no plans really made it great!

Hope everyone is ready for Fall!  I know I am.

This boho dress from Bailey Blue Clothing was one of my faves for our Maui trip! I love the boho print even more than I thought I would, and it’s perfect for transitioning into the fall season! Accessorizing with boots or booties and a hat would look so cute. The most exciting part of any dress is learning whether it has pockets or not… and this one does! Yay! I am wearing a size small, if you are torn between what size to get I would size up. I think this boho dress would look cute a little looser and flowy, I probably could have went with a medium.

We woke up early to explore the iconic Front street, it was so cool! We went to the Peter Lik gallery, oh my word, it was so amazing! Some of the most captivating photography I have ever seen. You’re not allowed to take photos or else I would have! After brunch, (I don’t think I could ever get tired of banana macadamia nut pancakes!) we checked out all the cool tee shirt shops and got gelato! The one thing I wished I would have got was shave ice! My best friend said it’s amazing!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week!

I had to have a pair of pom pom sandals for Maui! Everywhere I looked was either sold out or didn’t have the color combo I wanted. Thankfully Sammy Dress came to my rescue and had the exact color combo and design of Pom Pom Sandals I wanted, and for way less than anywhere else! Now I know these Pom Pom sandals might not be for everyday wear, but they are so perfect if you are going anywhere warm and fun for vacation! That’s why I was so excited to get such a great deal on them, since I normally will only invest more for shoes that I expect to get a ton of wear out of! I am wearing a size 40 which comes out to a women’s size 9. If you are in between sizes I recommend sizing up since they run a little small!

Last day in Maui and I am so excited to get home to see my Son.  Hope everyone is having a great week!

This red Bailey Blue Clothing dress is the best item I could have chosen to take to paradise! I wore it out to breakfast and dinner and got so many compliments! It’s so light and comfortable and looks great with flat sandals or heels! It’s so flowy with the different layers. My favorite thing is how it literally dances in wind! I chose the red color for our trip to Maui, but I also LOVE this cobalt color and this paisley print it comes in! Did I mention that my red one is on sale??!

It’s so nice to finally be in Maui for our honeymoon! We are staying at the Honua Kai Resort, it’s so gorgeous! I can’t get over the flowers! I keep asking John, “Are these flowers for real?!?!” They are seriously perfect!

We are missing Porter so much, but facetime and sending pics is helping. He is getting so spoiled by our parents, I think he is kind of liking his vacation as well!
