vancouver fashion week: day 1

Add caption

What do you guys think? Obviously, my favorite is the Lebanese designer, Gianni Maanaki. I love his use of textures and prints, which seems to be a common theme.

Stay tuned for more from VFW!


dear hawaii

dear hawaii

Dear Hawaii,

August marked our 2 year anniversary. I can't believe we've been together for that long. So much has happened since we met. I've grown. You've changed me. You've watched me become a wife and a mama. You've seen my career change. You've been a part of some of the happiest times of my life.

I know it wasn't always sunshine and rainbows and I'm sorry for that. It took me about a year to finally come to terms with our relationship. I was bitter. I was homesick. You were different and I didn't want different. I spent most days being angry at you for taking me away from my first love, Texas. My friends and family thought I was crazy. How could I not absolutely love living in paradise? Wasn't I laying out at the beach, frozen drink in hand (with a little umbrella), loving life? 

quotes about Hawaii

What I didn't realize then was that I can have a relationship with you without diminishing my natural-born allegiance to Texas. I can love both of you. No, you don't have Tex-Mex or a pro-football team. You use silly slang and I can't pronounce some of your words (although I'm getting better at that). Your timezone makes me feel like I live galaxies away from most people. You have only two types of weather: sunshine and rain. You don't have Whataburger, Blue Bell Ice Cream, Del-Dixi pickles, or decent tailgates. Most of these things seemed unforgivable. But I finally realized that you have other things- like daily booze cruises, manapuas, the best mai tai's, sunsets with colors I had never seen before, underwater adventures that I couldn't dream of, oh yea and your beaches are pretty nice too.

I guess I was so caught up in being mad at you, that I forgot to look around and see your beauty.

As I learn more and more about you each day, you amaze me more and more too. There are parts of you that literally take my breath away. Now, the thought of leaving you makes my heart ache.

I know that a big part of my newly-found feelings have to do with Jared having a relationship with you too. Everything is more enjoyable with him, which means I get to enjoy you that much more.

home is wherever you are
My sweet husband drew this for me!
Thank you for the memories, Hawaii. Thank you for letting me bitch about our differences and for embracing me anyway. Thank you for letting my little family and I call you home.

feel the rain

When is the last time that you felt rain? I mean really felt each drop hit your skin instead of rushing for cover. Try it sometime. It's pretty exhilarating. 

Someone recently told me that the hurricane season in Hawaii is July through December (is that true???) which is pretty insane. I'm kind of excited about it though. Well, not the hurricanes.. but the rain. 

There really are only two types of days here. Sunny or rainy. And I'd say the temperature stays anywhere from 70 to 90 on our side of the island. The rain is nice because it changes things up a bit.

Recently I've found myself feeling a bit envious of the weather on the mainland (that's what people in Hawaii refer to the other 49 states as). Isn't that weird? Most people would love to spend their days in a place like Hawaii, where the weather easily translates into paradise. I guess it's been so long since I've been in a storm or "bad weather" so the thought of it makes me a bit nostalgic. 

Driving through the rain. Hurricane parties. Running through puddles on the way to the subway. Snuggling under a blanket with the sound of rain hitting the window. The sound of thunder. Dancing in the rain.

Then, I woke up to this today:

It was perfect.

trendy or tacky? [wedge sneakers]

Wedge sneakers have taken over runways and streets around the world and I want to know what the big hype is. When have tennis shoes ever been considered a fashion statement unless you are in the 90's and/or a hip hop artist? Someone put a wedge in these sneakers and suddenly it's a trend?
I think there must have been an outbreak in models with sore feet because I hear these babies are super comfy- and I'm all about comfort.
Now don't get me wrong, the trend is weird enough that some people can rock it. And by some people, I do not mean myself.

What do you think of this new trend? Hot or not? Either way, I wouldn't invest too much in these. It's a trend that I don't see lasting long (I hope!).

alisha trimble ss2013

There was a private showing of the Alisha Trimble SS2013 line on Thursday night and I have the privilege to show you a sneak peak!

The theme was "new-nautical" which I love. My favorite of the above looks is the sheer knit babydoll dress. What do you think?
