Aloha! Karen, here.

Do you ever dream of going to a place, or a travel destination you have wanderlust for? My place was Hawaii. I say was because I just got back from a trip there!!! It was a very special trip at that, to celebrate my mum’s 60th birthday!

There were definitely adventures to be had, and though I got back a few weeks ago, I’m still day dreaming and wishing I was on the beautiful beaches or swimming in the warm (almost) bathwater like ocean!

My top 4 things to do in Oahu, Hawaii:

1. Go to the beach! Whether there’s one in the more tourist spots like Waikiki Beach, or the more isolated and famous north shore beaches, ensure you make time to lay out with a book, surf, snorkel or take a dip. You won’t regret it!

2. Eat and walk around! This doesn’t just go for Hawaii but try and do some research on where the locals eat. Immerse yourself in some Hawaiian culture. My favorites were poke (ahi tuna sliced up and seasoned in various ways), and dole whip – pineapple soft serve. YUM!!

3. Take a tour! Unless you rent a car, make sure you sign up for a tour that will take you around the island showing you various sightseeing spots. You can choose from more historical type tours, to a beach tour, or even tour the WHOLE ISLAND in a day. 

4. Go to a Luau! Okay so I’ve seen a lot of Lilo and Stich (teehee), grass Hawaiian skirts and shirts. But seriously for a full experience with dancing, food and drink, try and sign up or book a Luau. You’ll be taken through a journey of Polynesian culture through dance and music.

North Shore > Here’s the North Shore in Oahu, perfect for any beach activity!

Lost > Taking the tour meant I got to see where Lost and Jurassic Park was filmed! 

Mum exploring > Here’s my mum taking a stroll around the Dole Plantation where we had a tasty pineapple soft serve dessert.

Chief’s Luau >  Firedancing

Whether Hawaii is your destination this summer, or elsewhere, stay safe during your travels!  

Where are you heading this summer and more importantly, HOW EXCITED ARE YOU ABOUT IT!?!?

Mahalo,

Karen

As much as I'm excited for summer, I'm equally stoked for fall. This fall some awesome trends are making a comeback, and I'm ready to rock 'em. This fall is going to be a lot of 90's influence, with flannels, leather, cut outs, chokers, and so much more! It's all about getting in touch with your inner rebel. 

There's definitely some things I've tossed to GoodWill over the years that I'd do anything to get back in my possession. You know, like rainbow chokers, old band tshirts, ripped up leggings... that kind of cool. 

As far as our shoes are concerned, get ready for some edgier styles! We've got studs, buckles and heels that you're going to just LOVE!! So get excited for summer, and also know, this fall is going to be equally rad.

We have so many cute flats this season, picking a favorite's really been a struggle. I know, life's pretty rough.... summer's around the corner, it's warm enough for sandals and I'm surrounded by a bunch of cute shoes. Ok, life's pretty great. 

I think I've narrowed it down to my top 2 favorites from the Spring 14 collection, but I'm going to need your help in breaking the tie. 

Comment below with your pick!!!

Our favorite sandal of the season has gotta be the GRANOLA! This criss-crossed cutie comes in 3 different colors and it goes with just about everything. Pair it with shorts & a tshirt for a day at the beach, harem pants & chambray for a day at the office, or a maxi & a crop top for date night! 

Snag a pair today, this style's going fast!

Hey Ladies!

We went exploring around town yesterday and brought our favorite sneaks with us! We had some ice cream, took a walk, made contact with some sand and shared a lot of laughs. Sometimes it's good to get out of the office; you end up coming back feeling refreshed. The SoCal weather has been so beautiful, so we're soaking it up before June gloom sets in... 

So if you're crushing on any of our summer styles, guess the name of the shoe and where we were for a chance to win a pair! Just leave your answer in a comment below and we'll pick a winner next week. 

Have an awesome weekend!

Xo, 

Lindsey
