Hi there! 

I love Spring Break and resort wear. We can finally let our skin take in some sunlight and salt water and let our hair down a little. I was lucky enough to have traveled to Hawaii (and Mexico) recently and while in Hawaii I visited Big Island (Kailua Kona) and Oahu (Honolulu)! I had a blast and loved visiting two little boutiques: Island Sweetie in Honolulu and Sugar Momo in downtown Kona. 

The first look featires a romper which is currently on sale from Island Sweetie in downtown Honolulu in the Waikiki beach neighborhood. The embroidery and beachy look are spot on trend and so much fun to wear as a beach cover-up or casual look for Spring and Summer. I styled mine with flip flops and baseball cap over my bathing suit for lounging around the resort by day.

The second look was from the cutest store in downtown Kona on Big Island called Sugar Momos. They featured crystals like my gorgeous amethyst necklace and other gypsy boho clothing pieces and home accessories. I wanted to take everything home with me! My floral kimono (currently on sale) is also from there, and my shorts are oldie but goodie H&M conscious collection as well as the tank. My silver sandals are from a Tibetan store in New York City. This adorable shop in Kona will be moving and expanding to next door to their current location, and the owner has the coolest story. Don't miss out on stopping by when you're in the area! 

Stay tuned next week for more resort looks!
