summer mint top.

mint seems to be taking over my closet, and i'm ok with that! it's the perfect color for spring and summer as it looks refreshing thrown over white denim or shorts. it's all about details, and i love the bow and semi-sheer back on this top from Patty's Closet.

stay tuned for a cute giveaway coming up this week.

what's your summer color?

best thing ever...perfect for roasting marshmallows.

how to wear red white and blue. 02

quick story...for years, i have been wanting to have an ugly christmas sweater party. i think it's a fun way to show off individual personalities and a great way to celebrate the holidays without the pressure of having to dress up. while i haven't hosted that party yet, i'm always on the lookout for the perfect ugly christmas sweater.

enter the show Shark Tank. i rarely watch tv but happened to catch an episode at a friend's house in which two guys were pitching their line of ugly christmas sweaters and their company called Tipsy Elves. naturally i was intrigued and was totally rooting for them.

fast forward to now. imagine my excitement when Tipsy Elves reached out to inform me of their american flag products just in time for fourth of july. i was excited simply because i knew exactly who they were (and where to get my ugly christmas sweater!).

while Tipsy Elves started out with christmas sweaters, they have expanded to become your one-stop-shop for holiday apparel. i am loving my american flag sweater...i mean, it doesn't get any more patriotic than this! check out their website for more red, white, and blue clothing items and accessories.

how to wear red white and blue. 01

the fourth of july is coming and that means three things...bbq, beach, and beverages red, white, and blue! i found this chambray shirt dress in my friendship swap bag and thought it would be the perfect backdrop for pops of red and white. a subtle way to show my patriotism.

this weekend, we hiked up diamond head at high noon. it was so hot. we definitely didn't plan it that way, it just happened. it was also crowded and there was no parking on site, so we had to park far and walk. i really didn't mind the extra distance...if only it weren't so hot. super proud of mini-he; this hike was probably a bit much for him, but he made it to the top.

if you're in the US, do you rock red, white, and blue for the 4th?
how was your weekend?

ugh...more stairs! 
loved the tunnels...respite from the sun!
view from the top...did you catch it on periscope?
he made it!

printed romper.

is everyone enjoying their summer so far? there are so many things i want to do this summer that i'm getting anxious. maybe it's because mini-he and i have been sick that i feel like we're missing out, but i can't complain about what we've done so far. in fact, last weekend, i went to a really fun and informative wine tasting of nine wines we can't get here in hawaii. it left us with lighter wallets (my friend and i split a case of our two favorite wines), a great buzz, and a longing for tuscany.

i'm wearing another romper from Patty's Closet. i can't stress how easy these are for summer when you need something cute and effortless for all the activities you'll be doing. i'll be poolside with drink in hand tomorrow; catch it on snapchat. have a great weekend!

friendship swap.

a while back i won a pair of friendship swap bags that i never had the chance to use. well, a friend recently brought up the subject of organizing a clothing swap party, i remembered the swap bags, and long story short, our swap partnership was born.  we had a successful first swap. i was excited to find this pretty dress in my bag; it fit perfectly and is the perfect length to wear with flats. my friend loved one of the tops in her bag, so we actually swapped them for good. have a great week!

do you participate in clothing swaps?

magenta romper.

it's officially summer in our house, as the minis are out of school. and while it's been hot and humid, it's also been rainy since we are approaching hurricane season here. rain or shine, i just love summer because we can stay out late be flexible with our routines and enjoy the longer days. this pretty magenta romper from Patty's Closet is perfect for romping around in the summer.

last weekend we went to see the harlem globetrotters...did you catch it on snapchat? i saw them when i was young and have been waiting for the opportunity to see them again. they definitely put on a good show.

how's your summer so far? any big plans?
