Hike to the Northern Point of Oahu

Hiking in Hawaii

When I think of hiking in Hawaii, I think lush tropical flowers, waterfalls, and vine canopied trails.  Not so  much on this hike.  The manager of the house we rented suggested we take a hike to the Northern tip of Oahu to catch a glimpse of seals lounging on the beach and get an amazing sunset view.  Sounded great!

Well, the hike was not exactly as described.  It was essentially an off-roading track thats main features included tire tracks, empty beer cans, and panties left behind.  Not exactly the picturesque trail we were expecting.  We turned back after talking to someone that said we had a long ways to go… by car.  Since we didn’t want to be walking back in the dark and wine on the beach sounded so much better, we turned around.

The best part was climbing over the rocks along the beach.  Here are some shots of that portion of our walk.  The moral of the story, take advice with a grain of salt and make the time to research the destination yourself.  Oopsy!

Breaking out the Boots

Boots!

Boots!!  I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about being able to wear my boots again.  They make me feel pulled together even when I’m just wearing jeans and a tank.  These ones from Stuart Weitzman work with basically everything and have a thin enough calf that I can’t wear them on their own.  Three cheers for no slouching!

Hammer Time

Me with my Sole Society HeelsRemember those gorgeous shoes Sole Society sent me to style?  Here’s the complete look!  Since the Kadene shoe has such a great mix of tough and feminine, I decided to do the same with my overall look.

I wore a pair of leopard print slouchy pants (that I like to lovingly call my “hammer pants”) and topped it off with a simple silk blouse.  To toughen up the look, I layered on a few gold chain necklaces from H&M.  Finally, I added a pop of color with my red patent leather Kate Spade dot bag and a red lip.  For those of you looking for a great red lip that actually lasts, try the YSL Glossy Stain (I’m wearing number 9).  It’s really the best ever!

These shoes are sure to be a staple in my wardrobe.  They’ll look great with jeans, skirts, dresses… you name it!

These Booties Were Made for Talkin’

Booties

Don’t you love that moment when you’re shopping and suddenly it’s like the clouds part, the sun shines down, and angels start singing luring you to that special find… and it’s on SALE?!  That’s how I felt when I found these leopard print calf hair booties at the latest Nordstrom sale.  It’s like they were made with me in mind!  These babies are statement shoes though so when I was planning the rest of my outfit, I kept it pretty simple in order to let them do the talking.  The leatherette jeans give a bit of a tough girl vibe but I tone it down from being too “motorcycle chick” by adding a white silk blouse.  Keep accessories simple too… the leopard print is loud enough!
