Red, White, and Blue Hawaii

Hello and Happy New Year!
    A rainy day here on Kauai leaves a bit of time to catch up on blogging!  It is our last full day here before we move on to the north shore of Oahu.  These photos were taken in the back yard of the house we are renting here. It is a bit of a bummer that it has been raining for two days now, but it is also the reason all of the tropical plants are so beautiful and abundant here, so I guess that's a pretty fair trade off.

Outfit Details:
Sandals: B.C. Footwear
Dress: Vintage
Floral Headband: DIY
     We spent New Years Eve driving across the island in lots of traffic in order to get to Waimea Canyon, which is known as the grand canyon of Hawai'i.  It was quite a long car ride, but the hike we did at the end was pretty amazing! We hiked along a canyon ridge in the fog, so when you looked to either side it looked like you were in a huge abyss of clouds. After the one car ride back, we all rallied and went out to a late dinner with a few too many Sake bombs, and then my brother, R and I headed out to a local bar to ring in the New Year.  I am trying to enjoy life in the moment for now and have not made my typical list of resolutions yet, but probably should give that some thought soon.  How did you guys ring in the new year?  I am off to read some of your blogs to find out :)

  1. Love the outfit. So casual yet gorgeous and the flower headband is a fun addition.

  2. Ooo we both really were feeling patriotic haha! And your vacation sounds sooo awesome, pack me in your carry-on next time? I love that vintage dress of yours, and that flower crown added the perfect finishing touch to the whole look. And I'm loving the idea of taking a hike in the clouds, it sounds so fairy tale like!

  6. Aw, so beautiful! Those flowers are stunning-making me wish for spring! Sounds like you're having a ton of fun in spite of the rain. It was funny, when I visited Seattle it didn't rain once when we were there, haha. I didn't know it rained so much in Hawaii but I guess it makes sense with all of the plants. You look lovely in your dress and matching floral crown! :)
