Lately it seems like everywhere I look I see signs of fall — pumpkin spice lattes, fall makeup tutorials, light layers — but here in Hawaii our weather doesn’t ever get cold enough to bundle up. One way I love embracing the fall trends without the warm clothing is just by dressing in fall colors like this maroon skirt and heavier fabrics like this chambray shirt. I definitely plan to throw booties, light scarves and sweaters into the mix too.
This past weekend was Miss Hawaii USA orientation and I got to meet all the contestants and lots of their families too. I have to say, it was SO NICE to be on the other side and not competing this time around. Not being in competition mode means eating yummy food, having a social life, and not having to wear heels if I don’t want to — all things I am no longer willing to give up!
