Hoodie: c/o thinc. by pinc.
Leggings: c/o Swell
Sandals: c/o Aeropostale

This hoodie from thinc. by pinc. is near and dear to me because it represents one of my favorite hobbies back home: Stand Up Paddleboarding! I may not know how to surf or bodyboard like a true "native" from Hawaii should (I know, I'm a failure), but I'm pretty alright at paddleboarding. I took it up one summer when my friend's family rented a beach house with the ocean right in the backyard! We would spend our days paddling straight out into the open ocean or riding tandem along the reef with the little fishies. Once we even saw a reef shark slyly slip right by us. It was one of those moments where we both spotted it but neither one of us said a word because we didn't want to freak the other person out. haha.

Anyway, I love paddleboarding because it's such a calm experience. The combination of the sound of the paddle slicing through the water and the smell of the salty ocean air is so relaxing! Not to mention, it's a bit of a workout! :) I haven't been able to go since last July but I hope to go again this summer either back in Hawaii or somewhere else warm and peaceful.


Beside the literal depiction of this awesome and not to mention, extremely cozy, hoodie, I also love the symbolic meaning it stands for.

STAND UP.

Stand up to people who are knocking you down.
Stand up to trials that are weighing you down.

Because life is like paddleboarding.
Sometimes it's hard to stand up at first because you're afraid you might fall down,
but once you do get the courage to stand up, it's smooth sailing from there.

thinc. by pinc. has a number of t-shirts with inspiring messages and unique designs!

  1. Love your hoodie!!

  23. I love the idea of paddle-boarding (hmm, in the UK, not so much - maybe on a visit to warmer climes! My cuz is surfing in the French Caribbean as I type!), and not only love your hoodie, but your interpretation of what those words mean on a deeper level. #AllAboutYou

    (ps - hope you'll be back to link up this Tuesday x)
