On the first day, I broke out the denim shorts (Forever 21) and paired them with one of my too-short swimsuit cover ups! I had to put a tank under it, but it so works, and it was nice and light-weight. Add some Walmart white studded flip flops and my Charlotte Russe sunnies and you're good to go! This picture was taken with my grandpa at the Kiluhea Lighthouse. It was a really cool point where you could look out to the ocean and do some whale watching!
This is me with my grandma and grandpa, and one night while I was there we went to a luau! It was SO much fun. This outfit starts with an Old Navy blouse-y top that I got on CLEARANCE, paired with my favorite skirt from Forever 21. I got to wear my favorite colors for this outfit, and the fresh lei ties it all together! not seen: black gladiator sandals from Walmart.
This was one of my favorite outfits from the trip! I had just got my Forever 21 black-and-white striped peplum top. I paired it with my F21 skinny jeans (for $13.50, by the way! AWESOME deal) and my gold sparkly sweater from Old Navy that I got 50% off! To add a vintage touch, I added my gold tiered necklace, which I got at an estate sale!
Here is me snorkeling in Poipu! I loved snorkeling, and my swimsuit, from Target!!
At different places around the town, I would see these book carts, and so I investigated this one- and they have these for people to browse and buy books for cheap, and all proceeds go to the local elementary school! As far as my outfit goes, black tank with my Marshalls black cardigan that can be left open, or how I have it, tied up, with black rosettes on the collar. I paired those with my bright floral skirt I got for $5! And those gladiator sandals again.
Moral of the story: when you're going on a week's vacation, pack smarter, not harder. I packed::
1 swimsuit and cover-up
1 tank top
2 pairs of shorts
1 pair of jeans
1 pair of sandals
1 pair of flip-flops
1 pair of flats
1 pair of tennis shoes
