Cut-Offs & Coconuts

Fresh coconut water


Aloha! I just got home from my jaunt to Hawaii. Of all the things I crammed in my carry-on, I was especially excited about these cut-offsmostly because I'd finally slathered on enough St. Tropez to feel good in an orange-and-white print. After an afternoon of SUP (seriously, so much fun), my husband and I hit up the fruit stand across from the beach for some fresh coconut water and a sandy stroll. I paired these short shorts with white sandals (love the cool cut-outs), a breezy white tank, and a skinny belt to keep it all in place. I also wore a huge floppy hat because these days, the only tan I want comes from a bottle.

Later that night, we traded our coconuts for Mai Tais and witnessed a breathtaking sunset. To see more pics from the trip, follow me on Instagram!

  5. So jealous I can't wait to go back. Sounds like you had so much fun:) You should come up to LA we go paddleboarding all the time (although it's near impossible to compare it to paddleboarding in Hawaii).

  8. your trip looked amazing and huge kudos for St. Tropez - tans should only come from a (top shelf) bottle ;)

  10. Oh my goodness, this outfit is total perfection- i looove those Gap shorts. They're such a fun and happy print! And how beautiful does Hawaii look? I love that sunset picture, I can only imagine what a last you had there.

    And your bottle tan looks AMAZING- how you managed to look golden rather than the usual orange is beyond me!

    1. Marlen, you are too sweet! Trust me, I've looked orange plenty of times in the past, but thankfully, self-tanners have gotten so much better that I usually turn out okay. I really like the St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse for special occasions (like vacation) when I want a darker tan, but for everyday use, I also love Jergens Natural Glow.
