How to dress like a local...

I'm obsessed with this blue dress that I found at Mahina back in April and I seem to find myself reaching for it at least once a week these days...
Anyway, I've been thinking it would be fun to feature some of my day to day outfits from time to time ( like what I wear on a typical day when I'm NOT in a bathing suit ). I like to take pictures of the clothes I discover for you all but I'm understanding that it's hard to imagine what they really look like if they are just hanging on my bedroom door! So please bear with me...I'm hardly a professional model ( haha! )
 Lucky for me I live in a place that only has one season. This means I can wear summer stuff like this all year round and I really like that....However, over time you will notice that I don't wear all that much Hawaiian/island style clothing out here. I think l'll leave that one for the tourists ( wink! ).

{ Dress: "Everly" from Mahina in Paia }

{ Canvas and Gold Wedges: "Bamboo" from Mahina in Lahaina }

{ Gold Sunglasses: Forever21 }
