It has been quite a whirlwind of traveling and settling in here in Kona and feels like I have not blogged in awhile! I just wanted to stop in and say hi and wish everyone the happiest of holidays! If you celebrate Christmas, I hope it was spent with your family kept close, good friends on hand, and of course good spirits and food to go around!
Outfit Details: Dress- Vintage // Floral Crown - DIY // Shoes- Nine West via Marshalls
My family opened presents last night on Christmas Eve and it was perfect. Though bringing the presents along with us this time to open in Kona made packing and planning a bit more difficult, it turned out perfectly! It was just my parents, brother, and I in our apartment here and as usual it was filled with lots of presents and laughs! I am pretty sure we all made out like bandits! Then today for Christmas day my two aunts (both my mom's sister and dad's sister live here on the Big Island) came for brunch and another little gift exchange. After that, we drove into the mountains into the forest for a little Christmas day hike, followed by a delicious Christmas dinner at the Kona Inn.
As for my Christmas Eve outfit here, I wore a vintage dress that I altered before I came by removing the poofy 80s sleeves and shortening the hem. To make it a little bit more island style, I added one of my new DIY floral crowns and once again felt like Lady Christmas herself!
Here is what it looked like before the alterations I made:
