What to Wear No.42

Aloha 'oe! I'm off to Hawaii (soon).

Just two more days until we jet off! I'm so anxious and can't wait to stick up that out of office notice and get going. I haven't packed yet, so maybe this outfit roundup will give me some inspiration. I can't wait to be in Hawaii and am aiming to pack mostly flowy dresses, summer sandals and flats, and easy pants with thin blouses. Comfort and classic all the way. I also picked up two new bathing suits from COS... I ordered three last year and LOVE them, so I snagged two new one pieces this year. I swear by their suits and highly recommend taking a look. Can't wait to live in them on vacation for the next couple weeks. 

We have a few excursions and reservations planned, but otherwise will be soaking up the sun and enjoying the gorgeous beaches, mountains, and fresh air, exploring the towns, and booking activities on a whim. We have a sunrise bike tour planned, jet-skiing, a luau (duh), dinner at Duke's, spa time, learning how to make leis, and hopefully doing some horseback riding, snorkeling, etc. YYYAAASSS. Message me on Insta or Twitter if you've been to Oahu, Maui, or Kauai and have recommendations. Can't wait! Be sure to follow me along on Instagram for stories... I'll be sharing lots and lots! I had a few messages to share some things I'm packing, so I think I'll do that tomorrow while I pack. Tune in!

Mid-century pieces making me swoon.

Hello hello. Hope you all had a lovely weekend. Mine was great! I was a wild woman and went out with a girlfriend Friday night. Just the two of us... which is always so fun, and always ends up being more crazy than expected. But sometimes I need nights like those when I can go out and have fun and socialize and dance and enjoy the DC nightlife. Saturday was very chill, just went home to hang with my dad. Then spent Sunday strolling around 14th street and brunching. Good times. Anyways, I'm actually stoked it's now Monday because that means only four more days until Hawaii!!!!! YAAASSS.

Ok.. that's all for now. I'm back at it with another mid-century mix of items I'm currently wishlisting. I love this roundup - especially the wicker table and chairs set!

Film Favorite: La Piscine
Film Favorite: La Piscine, on Natalie Catalina

A film favorite.

This past weekend, on a rainy Sunday morning I watched one of my favorites, La Piscine. It's the perfect summertime film. And obviously the fashion is amazing, especially when style muses like Jane Birkin and Romy Schneider are involved. Also... I love a little 1960s Jacques Deray!
