Shorts (SUPER old vintage from high school!) – Similar option HERE
WOWEE, what a week we have had! We landed back in Vancouver at 2am this morning after a whirlwind week in Oahu, Hawaii! The post vacation blues are in full effect over here. Thankfully we have a little sunshine in Vancouver today, other wise I might be in full on sadness on the couch mode, haha!
I thought I’d start off with our first day we spent on the island. As you can see, we didn’t have the best weather on day 1. It was a little overcast, very windy and actually pretty cold! I was getting nervous in the afternoon because I only packed one jacket and one pair of pants! Luckily, things did turn around for a few of our days. But it’s Hawaii, you gotta expect a little rain in a tropical place, right?
As you might have noticed in my last post, I was a little bit excited for an authentic hawaiian acai bowl. I mean, I was eating them everyday for about a week! And I even got Ken on the obsession with me! So as you can imagine, the first place we plugged into google maps was Haleiwa Bowls. I had been told by MANY people that they are the best on the island, and let me tell you, they did not disappoint. They are currently working from a food truck that was just a 7 minute drive from Turtle Bay where we were staying, so it was a perfect breakfast choice for us. Once we got our hands on our tasty bowls, we walked a few steps over to the nearest beach and watched the morning surfers take to the ocean.
Once we had filled our bellies with tasty smoothie bowls, we made our way back to the resort and snapped the remaining outfit shots you see here 🙂 These pictures really don’t do the beach at Turtle Bay justice. When the sun was shining, this cove was stunning. I’ll be sharing more photos from around the resort and showing the beach area in all its glory in a future post 🙂
I know I’ve said it a million times, but I freakin’ love vintage shopping! This bag cost me a whopping $3.99 at value village a few days before we left on the trip. Of course there are TONS of them around the web but I managed to find 3 different beach/wicker type bags for a few dollars each in just one value village. Felt like a win to me!
