You might have seen from Instagram (or my last outfit post ;-) that I spent a little vacation in Hawaii!  I had so much fun on my two week vacation.  The first I stayed in Honolulu on Oahu, which I usually visit twice a year (once during summer and once during winter for Christmas and the New Years).  The second week I spent on the Big Island, starting in Kona then kicking back and relaxing at the Hilton Waikoloa Village Resort.  

I love the Waikoloa Resort!  It's incredibly gorgeous, complete with gardens, beaches, pools, lagoons, canals, shops, restaurants, and a spa (which I enjoyed particularly!)  They even had a boutique with Lilly Pulitzer resort wear, and I couldn't resist adding this top to my vacation wardrobe.  I had already brought along two Lilly dresses, one Lilly skirt, and four Lilly clutches, so needless to say my outfits in Hawaii were quite bright!

The shell print of the top called for some nautical accessories, so I added striped rope wedges and KJP bracelets, along with my absolute FAVORITE pair of sunnies.  (thanks, Polette!)  

I really loved my time at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, and I can't wait to go back.  If you ever visit, I highly recommend getting a facial or treatment at the Kohala spa, stopping by Na Hoku jewelry to ogle at the gorgeous pieces (pearls galore!), and kicking back by the pool to relax.  

For grabbing a bite to eat: I loved the acai bowl from Waikoloa Coffee Co.  The Lagoon Grill has a  great island veggie wrap, and their vegan burger also looked delish.  If you stop by Kamuela Provisions Co, the organic local greens salad is delicious.  And don't forget to grab a scoop to enjoy at the Marble Slab Creamery!  The passion orange guava sorbet is fresh and delicious.

  1. I love your top! Glad you had fun in Hawaii! I've always wanted to visit Hawaii, but we've never had the money to go. Once I'm on my own and out of college, I'm definitely planning on visiting, maybe even living in Hawaii.

    1. Hawaii is one of my favorite places on earth! The longest I've stayed was three months, which is *almost* like living there!

  2. Legs. For. Days. And I'm in love with that bag!
