Naturally Nautical: Stripes and Summer

Nautical Stripes

Happy Friday Everyone! Hope you are having an amazing week. It’s almost the end of July and summer is half way over. Summer has got to be my favorite time of the year. It’s almost always sunny here, the summer heat definitely calls for some beach time and ice cream.

The moment I saw these shorts, they reminded me instantly about summer and the ocean.  Its nautical navy stripes paired with a woven white top and espadrilles make it a perfect outfit to keep cool during the summer months.

What’s your favorite summer time outfit?

Thank you again for reading. Take care.

A little Fun in the Sun: Crop Top and Brocade Skirt

Hello Everyone,

Happy Saturday to you!  I woke up to the rustle of wind outside and the sun peaking through the clouds.  I have to admit that as  Summer approaches, the days here start off sunny and end up with  light showers and  wind. One of the major challenges that I have dealt with in the pursuit of taking great pictures for this blog is dealing with the elements on photo shoot day. The sun gets into your eyes, the wind blows everything everywhere, and the rain likes to pop in here and there, and through it all, the face, the clothes, and the pose need to look flawless. It’s work in progress but eventually, I will master the art of taking better pictures.

The crop top is definitely making a comeback. I love to pair it with trouser jeans, flowing skirts, and shorts. Sometimes I like to layer it under jackets and vests. On hot days, it’s a welcomed outfit staple when touring around the island getting pineapple ice cream or “shave ice” desserts or getting lunch at Giovanni’s Shrimp Truck on the North Shore of Oahu.

What comeback trends have you tried lately? Please share your thoughts with me.  Thank you again for reading.
