How To Accessorize On The Beach

{Almost} Sunset at Ko’olina

Yet another trip to the beach. This time I met my college friend who made Honolulu her stopover. She’s never been to my side of the island so I brought her to Ko’olina. An afternoon of girl talk and giggles while being serenaded by Hawaiian music ? Priceless.


Okay, so how do you dress up and accessorize on the beach? I say look cute but not over-the-top touristy! Maxis are good but if you’re petite like me, wear something that will elongate your legs, like a pair of shorts. Don a colorful top and accessorize like a pro!

Black fedora straw hat (Walmart), top and shorts (Macys),
earrings (Icing’s), koa wood bangles

Ready to swim? take off the bangles and earrings. And please, don’t forget sunscreen!
Ironically, I’m still healing from a first degree sunburn. No thanks to the natural sunscreen I bought from etsy which didn’t protect me at all. Painful and itchy lesson learned.
