Dreaming of Maldives

So my lovely friend Lena from Belle Destination Weddings and Events recently vacationed at the Maldives.  If any of you have heard of this place, you will know what I'm talking about.  HOLY AMAZINGNESS.  I always think Maui is beautiful (which of course it is) but the Maldives are BREATHTAKING.   Really ridiculous.  Apparently star-studded as well.  Lena "ran into" Kate Bosworth and Darryl Hannah.  (Of course I couldn't resist asking if Darryl's mermaid tail made it's appearance when she went swimming......glad you all enjoy my sense of humor and love for cheesy 80's flicks..)  It's pretty much 48 hours of travel from anywhere because it's smack dab in the middle of the Indian Ocean (have no clue where that body of water is....I guess by India? ;) but apparently well worth the jet lag.  I happen to love island-style, so along with some photos I stole off of the resort's website (click here to wish you were rich and/or famous enough to go) I also created my own style set for the Maldives.  Oh, and in honor of Miss Lena, I also threw in the island-style Fedora hat.  She sported one in all of her photos.  A true island fashionista.  Enjoy.

p.s. I also threw in two of my favorite Maui companies.....Hula Hoops Maui for the most amazing jewelry (at last night's wedding I shot for Belle Destinations, I noticed all of us women vendors were wearing this brand of jewelry.  If you live on Maui and you want to be cool but look HOT you wear this line)  and also Acacia swimwear by Naomi Newirth and Lyndie Irons.  Check em ladies.....

Dreaming of Maldives


All the leaves are brown...and the sky is grey.....Wishing for Fall.

Dreaming of a chill to the air, boots, caramel-colored coats and pumpkin spice lattes. Fall was my favorite time of year when I grew up in the Sunny state of Oregon. (Kidding on the sunny part.) No, but really people. Fall in the Pacific Northwest is RAD. Beautiful colors, a crispness in the air, sunny days and chilly nights. Maybe I'll pull out my Frye boots today and wear them. With cutoffs and a tank top that is.....



I love this.

I'm obsessed with this look.  The blonde.  The eyeliner.  The Safari look.  My fav.  Every year it makes it's mark.  Funny, it kind of reminds me of what I call one of my cats.  Haiku Jungle Kitty.  Hmm....you will hear and see of that term in the near future.

p.s. I'm going to get my hair colored and done just like this girl's.  Um...hello beachy hot!
