Happy Tuesday! I’m finally back home after almost 10 days off work and blogging from vacation. Hawaii was very lovely! I can’t wait to share my experience to you in the next couple of weeks. So stay tuned for lots of content, brought to you from the tropical islands of Maui and Honolulu. Also, the next few weeks are going to be extremely crazy and busy for me. I’ll announce some exciting news very soon as the dates are near.

Meanwhile, here is an outfit pairing that I loved and was shot a couple weeks ago. You’ve probably seen this outfit on my Instagram, but I’ve finally had some time to blog about it today as I’m sitting at a Starbucks in Mulkiteo, WA. It’s near my boyfriend’s workplace, so I’m just here for a few hours before I have to catch my flight back to MN later this afternoon. So today is Monday (Aug 29), so I’m blogging a day ahead. It has been a few hours, and the coffee starts to kick in, finally! I’m not a morning person whatsoever, and trying to adjust to this time change is a bit tough for me. Compared to the Midwest central time, Hawaii is 5 hours behind. And Seattle is 2 hours behind. How crazy! I have a few hours tonight to catch up with my sleep, and then I’m back to the 9-to-5 work grind on Tuesday!

ABOUT THIS OUTFIT: I went for an all white look, well, more like an all off-white look. The off-the-shoulder top is from MANGO. I love that it has pretty much every single trendy detail of the summer you can name. It’s laced with the ruffles going across the chest and back area. It has a halter neck with even more lace lining it. The skirt is my absolute favorite piece, also from MANGO. I got both the top and skirt from their last summer sale just a week before my trip. I’d been eyeing that skirt for awhile, and I was so shocked that it went on sale for only $30. I don’t think both items are still available since I bought them before my trip to Hawaii. Good news that the earrings and the skirt are still available. You can shop them and some other similar items I’ve picked out at the end of this post, at the SHOP MY LOOK section. This outfit is perfect for any family and friends’ gathering when you need to look a bit more put together. It pretty speaks my style, a bit dressy and classy, office-like dressing, but very casual and clean. Let me know in the comment section below what you think about it.

OUTFIT DETAILS: top and skirt: MANGO (bought online at MANGO website) | espadrilles: Laurent Raph Laurent (bought on sale at a local outlet)

Hope you’re having an amazing start of the week. Stay tuned for lots of content shot in Hawaii. Thank you so much for reading.

stay inspired | as always
