I always thought the beaches in California were nice, but Hawaii is on a whole different level—the water is so much warmer and is crystal clear, you can actually encounter fish near the shore, and there is an overall much higher respect for nature that is held there. This look was shot at Hanauma Bay which is on the island of Oahu, and in order to gain access into the beach, they require all first-time visitors to take part in an orientation so they can learn about marine life, conservation, preservation, and general beach safety. I cannot praise what they are doing enough! :)

Outfit post two from Hawaii! This was one of my more casual outfits that was perfect for exploring around town. I've generally always been a statement piece kind of girl but school has instilled in me a newfound appreciation for classic, staple items. When you're at school till 4 AM some days, anything to make mornings easier makes a world of difference!

So many things to love about Hawaii but one of my favorites is that it's perfectly acceptable to go out and about in outfits like these! Sure I can do this in California but I guess I feel more comfortable wearing stuff like this in Hawaii because you see a lot of people around town wearing beach attire or swimsuits/wetsuits :)

This look was shot at Limahuli Garden & Preserve which is in Hanalei, on the island of Kauai (more will come on that later in my full Hawaii trip round up post!) It brought a special kind of happiness to me to partake in ecotourism in eco-friendly clothing. Keep reading for outfit details! ♥

To all my blog readers, I wanted to say first that yes, I am still alive and well, and also I wanted to apologize for being gone for 2 months! :( I have had quite a bit on my plate during September and October—starting at the California College of Arts as a junior transfer (just pulled an all-nighter this Sunday *cringe*), starting a marketing internship with SF-based sustainable fashion brand Amour Vert (keep watch for future Instagram and FB posts because I wrote a lot of them ;), and playing catch up with school work after having the privilege to attend an amazing 1 week press trip to Hawaii where I got to partake in all sorts of ecotourism-related activities! (Yes lots of photos and posts are coming from this too!)

This is a look I've been meaning to share to the blog that Nate and I shot previously, and even though it's now Fall here in CA, it's technically Summer in other places in the world so there's always people in swimsuit weather year round if you look at it that way! ;) Now onto the outfit details for this look...
