When Life Gives You Lemons

Happy Friday!
     I love this dress, but do not love these pictures. With all the rain we got in Hawaii this year, my lens kept on fogging up when going from outdoors to indoors, and most of these pictures fell victim to this. Oh well! My brother got me this RVCA lemon dress that I have long been lusting after for Christmas!  And my mom got me the cute little round straw bag and these adorable green shoes from Modcloth.  This was actually what I wore out to a little local Kauai bar for New Years Eve too, but I did not get a chance to take pictures that night. I was too busy doing a few too many Sake Bombs with my mother.

     Anyway.  These were taken inside of the house we rented near the North Shore of Oahu.  It was right on the beach, or more accurately, right in the ocean since there was only a teeny tiny strip of beach left in front!  What usually would have turned out to be an amazing location proved to unfortunately be super windy and rainy, but we soon figured out if we drove to the beaches a bit North, the weather was much calmer.  These are from the upstairs living room, and I just loved the rows of books and beachy curiosities!
     I thought I'd include a snap of my mom and I too, especially since she is wearing the skirt I got her for Christmas :) Hi mom! Back to wintery Colorado posts next week! Have a great weekend!
