Wanderlust: Taking in Melbourne

Two weeks ago we went on an Australian Adventure. The next few blog posts will be about our trip. There was so much to take in and I did not feel that one blog post will do the trip justice. So in the next couple of days, I be sharing highlights from the trip. This first post is going to highlight  the city of Melbourne.

The weather was chilly when we got there but the sun was warm.  We spent a day in the city visiting a few art galleries.

A few weeks ago we got an opportunity to take a break and spend time with family. Our first stop was Florida and a visit to the campus of University of Miami. versailles1

On our first night there, we got a chance to taste the Cuban food from Versaille Restuarant in Miami.

Our first stop in Central America was Roatan, an island off the coast of Honduras, were we got a chance to swim with dolphins. And a quick stop in Belize where we drifted down Rio Grande. Both places were full of eco-tours.

Jumpsuits and Tea

Jumpsuit4

During the summer I was in search for a great  jumpsuit to change up my wardrobe. I was set in finding one that had a culotte bottom.

Jumpsuit

I kept this outfit simple but wanted to break up the jumpsuit with a obi belt tied at the waist to separate the top and the bottom.

This is a perfect outfit for lunch dates and afternoon tea. Thanks again for reading. Let me know how you wear your jumpsuits.

Wanderlust: Taste of the Garden Isle, Kauai Adventure

IMG_8082

About a month ago, we decided to take a break from Oahu and make our way to Kauai. It was a great weekend to get away and just enjoy life on another island. We got a chance to spend time with family and check out the cool sites to see on Kauai. Here are a few shots on our drive up to the north where we got a chance to visit the wet and drive caves.

I enjoy the character of each island. Kauai has this air of relaxation wherever you go. I love checking out the beaches there, so serene and peaceful.

We got a chance to check out the newly renovated Kilauea light house and listen to its significant story.

We also got a chance to check out one of my favorite local brands of coffee,  Kauai Coffee Company and take a tour of their farm as well as go coffee tasting.
