On My Mind

Although it was rather chilly in Vancouver this past weekend, I've got much warmer temperatures on my mind. You know, the types of temperatures you might find in a place like Hawaii... because that's where I'm going next month! 

My boyfriend and I will be staying in Kona on the Big Island and I've already started looking up fun things to do while we're there. I've never been to Hawaii before so if you have any tips or must-sees, please do let me know!

T-shirt: Ribbon Luxe (similar) / Cardigan: Zara (similar) / Vest: Club Monaco
Skirt: Oonagh by Nanette Lepore / Booties: Rachel Comey (here)
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (here) / Bracelet: Alden Rae

  1. I pretty much love everything about this look, Alison - it's neutral and edgy, yet full of different shades and totally feminine. I have to ask about your Minkoff bag, though... does it ever hurt your shoulder? I wound up getting rid of mine because it actually cut me a few times - through my shirt, no less!

    1. I haven't had any problems with the strap... that's crazy that yours did that! I usually don't wear it cross-body like this either; instead I loop the chain up and wear it as a shoulder bag.

  5. I love the accessories! The booties and Mini Mac are perfect :)

    Hawaii is my favorite place on Earth! We are going there for our honeymoon in a few months, and I can't wait! You'll have to take lots of pictures for us to see.

  12. Love your layering here Alison! Hmm you have to do the drive to Hana if you're on the Big Island. It's very windy, but so scenic. There are also black sand beaches as well and maybe look into whether it's humpback season there? I went on a whale tour in Maui before (unfortunately I can't remember the time of year) and we were so close, they swam under our boat!
