aloha style:: baby it's.... hot outside.





necklace:: {31 bits}
dress:: {oneill}
bracelets:: {gift}
shoes:: {hazmittens, c/o Blowfish}



I haven't been able to take outfit pictures in awhile. The rainy season (aka. winter) has started here on the island and Chris and I have been falling asleep to the pouring rain outside our window almost every night for the past week. It's one of my very favorite sounds. This is a strange time of the year for us as we do our best to embrace the cozy spirit of the holidays and spend our days in the hot island sunshine. Lots of contradictions. Christmas tree lit up in our living room. Palms swaying in the yard. Songs about dreaming white Christmases and ooh, baby it's cold outside. Meanwhile, the warm rain pours outside and the sun beats down on the green grass. On Sunday, after presents and cinnamon buns, we'll throw on our Santa hats and hop in the Jeep for our annual Christmas surf session.

Our last one. So for now, we savor the dichotomy of a Christmas in Hawaii.

  8. i am right there with ya, linds. it's supposed to be in the 60's and rainy tomorrow. which is, oh 4 days until Christmas.
    but hey, at least we get to wear short sleeves because really, one can only wear so many red/green shirts and sweaters. ;)

  10. It looks like our Christmas here in Kentucky will be kind of the same:) Instead of snow, we have 40-50 degree weather and rain. It has been weird but nice. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!!
