Maui-Inspired on Running on Happiness!

June 21, 2012

Bfrend bracelet, H&M sandals, rings & clutch, Club Monaco skirt, Forever 21 top

Hola! So today I have the big honour of guest posting on the lovely Katie’s blog Running on Happiness while she’s off gallivanting in Europe. She asked all of her guest bloggers to either style an outfit that was inspired by recent travels, outfit pics from their last travels, etc…you get the general theme! 

Maui was the last place I spent a good chunk of time at but unfortunately (well, it wasn’t unfortunate at the time), I spent the entire trip in a bikini. Soooo when it comes to outfit snaps…there really are none. I decided to do an inspired outfit post instead, and instead of picking the obvious (the turquoise waters, basically) I decided to pick the tropical fruit that I pretty much exclusively dined on the entire trip. Mangoes, papayas, pineapples…my faves! I picked up the juicy tones in my sandals, nails and top. Looking at it now, it’s got a bit of sunset inspo in it too. Check out my post here!

Anyway, I need to stop talking about Maui because it makes my heart hurt. I’ve already whined enough about it, so I won’t now. I love my new home and am having so much fun here, but pretty much, I think being raised by an ocean kind of spoils you when it comes to water. I just wish I could carry the Pacific Ocean around with me always…that’s not too much to ask for, is it?
Thanks again to the beautiful Katie for having me visit! Be sure to check out her wonderful blog, and follow her on Instagram (@runningonhappiness) to check out her gorgeous pics from Europe!
Happy Thursday everyone 🙂

    I'm also from Vancouver and living in Ontario for the summer. So I know exactly what you're talking about with missing the ocean. I'm craving a visit to a real beach so badly!

    Love the outfit! xx

    I love all of the tropical hues in this look, pally – that bright coral top looks like it was meant to be worn with your BFrend bracelet. And the fact that you matched your nailpolish to it? Amazing. You know how I feel about matching 🙂 And by the way, I'm so jealous of how picturesque your neighbourhood in TO is! Seriously, I want to live on a street full of brick row houses. It seems unfair 😉 Miss you, lovely.

    I agree, I've also been raised up next to the sea, so I couldn't imagine living without having it present almost all the time! I love this outfit, the top and skirt go so well together!

    Love the scalloped skirt!

    Your post made me think of my many trips to Hawaii, and now I wish I was there! Don't know if you've ever check out the island of Kauai, but it's one of my favorites!

    Following you.
