Yesterday I celebrated Easter with my very talented girlfriends cooking, dying, and getting creative with eggs! The girls cooked up Eggs in the Basket, broiled some bacon, tossed up a delicious spring salad, and then had an awesome DIY sesh! 

My friend Mahina has a beautiful home on the east side that gets such beautiful light no matter what the weather. Thank you to Nikki Jennifer for snapping these photos of me before everything got crazy in the kitchen! Excited to do more collaborations with her very soon!

J. Crew #accessoryfix

pc: Desmond Centro

One of my favorite parts of the year has now become entering J. Crew contests. It's a great chance for me to get as creative as possible, while taking advantage of the beauty of Hawaii. But most important of all, I always have such a blast shooting and putting it all together. We shot the day before the contest was over, so it was crazy trying to gather all our props and cracking open all the coconuts! I prayed so hard for no rain and perfect lighting that afternoon, and we were truly blessed that everything went perfectly. Enjoy all our outtakes and behind the scenes shots!

I was madly in love when I first laid eyes on the Alexa Chung x AG denim collection. This denim skirt was one of my favorite pieces, and has helped bring back the trend of the button down mini skirt!  Whether it's with a button down, crop top, or oversized knit sweater, it is a perfect piece for any season and is so versatile!

NEIMAN MARCUS CUSP BLOGGER EVENT

I'm so excited to be participating in the CUSP mannequin blogger event. Each of the three bloggers had to style a suit of mannequins by trend including "Mix, Don't Match," "Spice Market," and "New Bohemian." There was so many options for clothes, shoes, bags, and accessories it took me forever, but I'm really proud of the final looks. From today till Saturday at 2pm, you can vote for my suit of mannequins for a chance to win a $500 Neiman Marcus gift card! Join me for the blogger presentation and event 2pm on Saturday followed by light refreshments and free Laura Mercier makeovers.

Thank you to Reebok for these rad new Furylite kicks! I've worn them twice already and not only is it such a cool easy to wear shoe, but it's amazingly comfortable. I feel like it's been so hard for be to get a heel on these days (besides a boot), because I've become so used to sneakers an flats! 

Lots of events happening this week, so stay tuned to my Instagram and blog for more details!

Cameo Cirrus Crop Top from We Are Iconic  /  Top Shop Petite Satin Black Crepe Culottes / Cole Haan Pointy Toe Boots / Raen Optics Arkin Sunglasses / Jewelry by Justine Shark Tooth Necklace

I've been scoring some awesome goods by some of my favorite hard to find Australian labels. I spend a chunk of my computer time drooling over pieces by so many amazing Australian designers, and I'm stoked to able to finally get my hands on them here in Hawaii. I'm always on the hunt for unique basics, and We Are Iconic is definitely the place to find them. So in love with my new Cameo The Label tops!

One of the best pieces I brought back from SF is this handmade kimono coverup by my friend Evan Kinori.
