hawaii 5.0

In a few weeks my wife and I are fortunate enough to travel down to Maui to visit friends Jessica and Grayson (founders of Gypset Wellness), who moved there back in January.  Jess and Gray have informed me that I should pack casual, laid back pieces (i.e., shorts, tanks and tees) since local Hawaiian style is ‘surf’ inspired and not dressy – at all!  Think Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High.  I’m in a bit of a fashion conundrum since I’m not your typical sporty beach babe but want to “When in Rome” it.  So what’s the solve?  It is so important that we stay true to ourselves through style expression while also having the flexibility to adapt to changing environments.  Without compromising personal style and still ensuring to be location ready – there is always a fashion-friendly medium.  Here’s a few items in my mental shopping cart that cover both the fashion and function bases.  *above photo via here
