I’m always making Brandon drive me around the island and today’s adventure consisted of us trekking all the way to Waialua for the one-week-only sunflower field. When I moved to Texas for school, I learned that a 40 minute drive is like going from my house to Waikele: not a big deal. But here, that distance is quite a journey, so I’m lucky that Brandon puts up with all my adventure demands! For today’s trip to see the sunflowers, I picked my short sleeve striped sweater as the star of my outfit and styled the remainder of the look with some of my favorite pieces. I picked up this striped sweater on my most recent trip to Texas because I was instantly in love with the lightweight texture and colorful embroidered pineapple on the left part of my chest. Even though I already knew that I own too many blue articles of clothing, I couldn’t resist adding this summery piece to my stocked closet. I wanted to wear the striped sweater on this day in particular, because I knew it would match the sunflower field surroundings perfectly. I styled the top by tucking it into my new favorite pair of high waisted shorts from American Eagle and pairing the look with a pink duo of Kate Spade sunglasses and my everyday backpack. I think tighter tops look best tucked in to any high waisted bottoms and these mom shorts are just loose enough to balance the cling of the striped sweater. I finished the outfit with all of my regular jewelry, a bow scrunchie, and the most comfortable brown sandals I own. Of course, I couldn’t go without wearing my Mauna earrings in honor of all the kiaʻi protecting Mauna Kea today.
