Hawaiian Blues

 I would have never believed the blues of the Hawaiian ocean if I hadn't seen them in real life, but believe me when I tell you that it is pure magic. I think I must have said at least 100 times "look at the color of that water!!"


Hawaii is a place that has been on my radar ever since I was a little girl. I actually think it is the first place I ever wanderlusted over and so was the fist location I added to my bucket list. My parents had traveled there a few times in the 70s and have always been avid photographers of their holidays. My brothers and I would love to sit down after dinner and look at the slides through the projector and the ones I always wanted to see were the Hawaiian ones.

Of course, a lot has changed since they visited in the 70s, but it still held the same magic for me as I had hoped for. Ollie and I stayed on Oahu right in the tourist central of Waikiki and although we usually aren't that keen on overly touristy places, we were both blown away by how much we loved it. The beaches and streets are clean, the ocean is warm, the service is incredible and the scenery is breathtaking.

A week was not nearly long enough and I'm already missing that turquoise blue water. I think we both nearly turned into fish while we were there with the amount of swimming we did. I don't think I ever left the hotel without my swimsuit and most days were like this one, where the swimsuit was a part of my outfit. I love one-pieces for this reason -- no need for an actual top! This swimsuit is one of my favorite recent purchases along with the shorts. I love the way they look together and cover up my tummy after eating all of the gigantic American portions in sight.

And the very best part is this floaty, which was a whopping $3.99 from the ABC store! It makes me laugh at those crazy expensive ones you see online. This thing seriously made my trip and catching the waves on this thing was probably my favorite part. I miss it so much already and so badly want to go back!
