maui dreamin'

Maui! #1


In less than a week I will be in Maui on vacation. Which means, of course, that I can't stop thinking about what my vacation costumes are going to be. I usually build my outfits around a cardigan and a pair of tights (which are both year-round essentials in San Francisco), so it's kind of crazy to think of how little clothing I will be allowed to wear for a week. These collages are my dream outfits for a warm getaway. Click on them to see more details!

Oh! Have so much fun!! I'm insanely jealous - my dad's family is from Kauai and I miss it a lot.
Perfect outfits, by the way. So much better than the usual haole garb.

Yay for big floppy sun hats!! And Those lips glasses are amazing! Seriously perfect holiday gear :)

I just always wish I had a personal porter to carry it all when I am away - because it becomes totally undignified when you are collapsing under unwieldy bags!

All are so pretty! I love the first. I'm looking forward to full skirts and bikini tops this summer!

Lovelovelove. ♥ These only escalate my need for the spring and summer season to arrive quickly! Now I need to save up money to purchase some of these items, especially those retro bathingsuits. Of course, I'll have to try to get rid of my winter weight.

Have fun in Maui! Take lots of pictures for us. :)

You make the best Polyvore sets. That last one is killing me--I love the bikini!

Ah! such amazing outfits! I love all of the high waisted bottoms with frilly bra tops. Maui sounds like so much fun right now.

Ooo, pretties!
I must admit, living in a hot climate I feel pretty slack most of the time.
Jewellry and heels are just too much to think about!

Love!! Especially that blue swimsuit. I'm going to Maui in 1.5 weeks, I can't wait!! Except my wardrobe will consist of anything that fits my "just gave birth to a baby, and I need to nurse" body! :)
Have so much fun!

Phara said...

Have loads of fun and icecream :)
Love the dark green shorts and the dress in the last polyvore.
All very cute outfits!

These outfits are so dreamy! They all match your personality to a tee. I especially love the second to last outfit with the high-waisted bottoms and the tube top bra. Everything is so dreamy. But, you are right these pieces are extremely expensive.

You really have a knack for outfit making. These sets are just dreamy.

I love all the high-waist or cropped-length picks in your collages. So much classier than the typical beach fare.

Have a wonderful time in Hawaii! I'm sure you will :)

zelina said...

these outfits are so amazingly well put together. You're going to love it there. I've never been but it looks amazing. ;)

Bryce said...

You really affect my pocket book negatively with these collages. But they make me so happy! Summers are HOT for me, so these are all very inspiring.

Melissa said...

damn, I think I clicked on every single item in each of those collages. My poor wallet!!

robyn/rare treasure said...

Squee! These are all so fun! I hope you have a lovely trip - I have yet to make it to Hawaii, so I am supremely jealous!

avalonne hall said...

Those sets are amazing. I wish I would spend more time on Polyvore and look through all the amazing clothes. I do have my moments though.

So I was trying to get on facebook to message you, but it won't load on my laptop for some reason, so I'm here. I was wondering if you were free on March 12th, 13th or 14th to do the photo shoot for DNA? We were going to do a video shoot, but things have changed. I hope you'll be available one of these days. Please let me know asap! Thanks!

SMASH said...

ughh all of these sets are spot on amazing and totally all up my alley!! You've got quite the eye missy, I'm bookmarking this post for sure :)

The crazy corset bikini in the second photo kills me. It's always weird/hard to try to plan outfits for another climate, I was just in LA and thought it would be way warmer but got cloud/rain tricked!! Maui will hopefully be guaranteed so summery.

these are all so incredible! love your incorporation of treats and books and cameras! perfect.

Gaby said...

Great summer finds! I hear summer calling. Thanks for the inspiration!
