I'm an Over-Achieving Sandwich Eater.

After a long weekend away, Chris had the day off on Monday. Such a sweet surprise. The day ahead of us was wide open so we jumped in the Jeep and took off to the North Shore. With its wide expanse of grassy fields, pineapple farms and majestic mountains, this is easily one of my favorite drives on the island.







In Haleiwa, we hit up Chris' favorite sandwich shop, Stortos. And I bit my lip hard after taking a huge bite of my awesome sammie. Just wanted to be a big kid like Chris and take big bites. That'll teach me. 



dress:: {Target}
belt:: {Target}
necklace:: {market in Spain}
sandals:: {lil store in Annapolis , MD}
rings:: {gift from Chris and American Eagle}
nail polish:: {turquoise and caicos from Essie}

After lunch, we hit up the beach for some sunshine and floating in the ocean. Big fan of surprise days off over here. 





I'll leave you with this awkward picture that Chris took as I was clearing the brush away from the wall. No, I'm not peeing, I promise. 

Linking up with Lindsey's What I Wore Wednesday.

  6. What the hey?! You got that dress at Target??! I am so going tomorrow to snag it. I love it. I for sure thought it was going to be some snazzy hawaiian store where I couldn't get it. but Target? YES.

    And you make me miss Hawaii. Bad. Excited to be there soon.

    And you are too cute. Cut lip and all.

    That is all.

  9. I think you've officially made Target a Wednesday errand for all of us, if I may so boldly speak for just about everyone who stops by.

    Ok. Well, at least it's on my to-do list! :)

    Adorable dress. And love the belt with it.

  27. First off, I am totally going to try that sandwich place next time we get up to the North Shore! My hubby and I love sandwiches, but we've yet to find that really to-die-for sandwich place on Oahu. That might be it! And I love that dress...
