Hey there strangerrrrr!
I'm back from my MONTH LONG vacation in Hawaii and Japan! Did you miss me?
Adjusting to life back home has been rough. And not because I'm missing the warm beaches of Hawaii and gorgeous views of Japan. The TIME DIFFERENCE is 17 hours between here and Japan so falling back into a normal sleeping pattern has not been pretty. The first week back--I kid you not--I was going to sleep at 10am and waking up at 6pm. It was pretty miserable and I got close to nothing done all week. But with the help of some Sleep Aid and forcing myself to stay awake during daylight, I'm finally snoozing like a normal human being again. IN FACT, my sleep schedule has actually improved! I used to be a crazy night owl before my trip (I couldn't fall asleep before midnight and I'd wake up at 9/10 every day), but now, I'm getting sleepy at 8pm and waking up at 7am! It's actually really weird... but I'll take it. :)
Anyway, so now that I'm back and ready to start blogging again, here is my first Hawaii outfit post! The weather was actually a pain while we were visiting my hometown (it rained a lot a lot a lot) but if you take a 45 minute drive to the other side of the island, you can almost always find sun there. :) That's pretty much what we did the whole time we were there whenever we wanted to go to the beach! It sucked a bit, but at least we were able to escape the rain!
I loved soaking up the sun in my Lime Ricki swimmies! The combination of this solid bralette and striped high-waist bottom is so fun and bold. Also, this cover-up hoodie from Billabong is perfect for just throwing on over your swimsuit on your way to and from the beach! The french terrycloth fabric feels so nice on your skin and it breathes nicely so you won't get too hot in the humidity! If you're heading somewhere tropical this cold winter season, make sure you check out Lime Ricki and Billabong! They'll have all your vacation-style needs!
PS. I VLOGGED my entire Hawaii vacation (and Japan trip) and posted the videos on my YouTube channel! Check out all my Hawaii Vlogs HERE and as a bonus, here's my vlog from the day I wore this outfit:
