Haleakala Polka Dots

Happy 2014! Right before the new year, R and my family took a little road trip across Maui to explore Haleakala volcano.  And what's more appropriate to wear to a volcano than polka dots and a boater hat, am I right?  
Outfit Details: Dress - Marshalls // Sandals - BDG via Swell // Sunnies - Lulus // Hat - H&M

These were taken when we stopped at a little market on the way down, which was full of fun island treats, little homemade jams, and beautiful foliage.

We rang in the new year by grilling a huge salmon dinner, drinking champagne, and then heading out to a little beach bar.  As usual, New Years day was spent with a slight hangover, a sleepy feeling, and lots of water, a tradition which I am realizing I am no longer the biggest fan of.  What did you guys do to celebrate?
