packing for our babymoon in hawaii

I could not be more excited for our upcoming trip to Hawaii for our BABYMOON!! 

I have been working around the clock on a project that needs to be finished by June 5th. after that, I'll be working around the clock that week to get the blog setup to run while I'm away. then that Saturday, June 10th, I leave for Maui for a week! 

this year, we haven't taken any vacations, because of ZIKA and saving up for the baby, of course. this time last year, we already had been to Park City skiing, Florida for Memorial Day weekend, the Exumas for a belated birthday trip, and Palm Springs for a quick getaway! we love to travel and I have been dying for a trip! 

we have never been to Hawaii and are HUGE beach people, so we're so so excited to literally veg out on a beach for a week. we're staying in Maui the whole time and I plan on doing 1 or 2 excursions and spending the rest of the time curled up in a beach chair, drinking mocktails and reading! 

anyway, I've been slowly ordering some things for the trip - and still have to go shopping for some last minute items, but I'm almost set! none of my summer clothes (tanks, shorts, etc) fit anymore, so I had to re-stock up! 

here's what I'm bringing to Hawaii, including some of the things I WANT to bring:

this pleated tank dress in black by Ingrid & Isabel: it's so flattering and can be easily dressed up with some strappy sandals for when Lu and I go to a nice dinner.

this adorable sarong with pom poms

this GAP tank is flattering and fits perfectly around my emerging bump - it's nice and long! I have it in three colors! perfect for a day excursion.

this off-the-shoulder dress in white by Ingrid & Isabel: time for those post-Memorial Day whites!

these denim shorts by GAP.

this adorable beach bag

the comfiest slide-ons by Steve Madden.

this palm print body con dress by Old Navy - for a casual day by the pool for lunch.

this festive palm print dress by Old Navy for a dinner night! 

simple leather thong sandals by GAP.

and these strappy sandals from GAP.

reading material: the glass castle, I've heard it's amazing.

this gauze coverup

this off the shoulder dress in a beautiful baby blue for the baby boy :)

I just bought this bathing suit, fingers crossed it fits! 

this cute little coverup with tassels

thinking about buying these - they go so well with my white off-the-shoulder dress.

also waiting on this suit to arrive, hoping it fits! 

these sunglasses from made well - just picked these up last weekend!
