We're back from our honeymoon in Hawaii! I took a hiatus from my blog in the weeks leading up to our wedding since I was just so busy finalizing all the details of our big day. While we were in Hawaii I was definitely keeping up with my Instagram posting, wanting to share all we were doing and seeing with friends and family but also to keep a record of our trip for us to relive. But now that we are back I have a lot planned and ready to share.
We had heard great things about Mama's Fish House and knew we had to grab a meal there when we were in Maui. Most of what we had heard was about the great food so I was pleasantly surprised when we showed up and found the most beautiful beach right outside the restaurant. Perfect blue waters and picturesque palm trees.
This blue Magill top that I designed has been hanging in my closet for a couple of months now and the crystal clear water in Maui made for the perfect place to pull it out. Everyone knows I love me a good ruffle or two and this top has them aplenty. Since the sleeve has a lot going on I balanced out the right side of the design with an open shoulder and simple tie.
Basket bags really started popping up last summer and they are in full trend mode this season. I knew I wanted to get a new bag for our Hawaii trip and didn't want to spend a ton. I ended up finding this bag on Amazon, of all places, for a steal at $40. I used it constantly throughout our trip since it was so versatile and easily held all my things. I included links to a few similar bags below in you're looking to add a basket bag to your closet.
After getting lunch at Mama's we took the rest of the afternoon to explore the nearby town of Paia. We wandered into the surf shops and boutiques which were full of beautiful beach decor and clothing. We stopped into Paia Bay Coffee & Bar for the second time on our trip to enjoy their gorgeous hidden garden cafe, definitely worth checking out if you're in Maui!
We have so many photos from our trip that I can't wait to share. Get ready for lots of tropical prints coming soon!
