My first official fashion post of the New Year! Excited to be back but man oh man do I miss Maui. I had the very best vacation ever and I cannot wait to tell you more about it later this week (or maybe next depending on how motivated I am -- this snow dump does not help).

It was so extremely nice to have that break and to take time for myself. I needed to hit refresh after the New Year and I'm so happy I did. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do. But just like in everyday work, you need an actual break. This seemed like the perfect opportunity. And guess what? The world didn't stop, the blog didn't end and I realized life will go on without me posting to the world. What a funny thought.
In Maui, Andrew and I explored a new beach every day. We ate out every night and I went to bed no later than 8pm. It was amazing. I found a new love in reading, I got the sun rays needed to get me through this winter and for the first time in forever, I actually packed the correct number of swimsuits for a trip (usually I am one to overpack).
I didn't even wear make up except for one day (our first night during the Luau). It was such an amazing feeling -- truly being on winter break.
What I did manage to do (because I loved this dress so much) was to take this outfit photo above. I snagged this dress from Nordstrom before I left and it was perfect. It was so easy and comfortable to wear and it was just the right amout of laid back I needed for this Hawaii trip. Did I mention it has pockets?
I can't remember the last time I posted on the blog without makeup on but this is normally what I look like six days a week. I think I stopped wearing makeup on a daily basis three years ago and I've never looked back. I know I might totally look different to you all, but this is the Krista I know and love! Proud that I can share that with you all here.
And since I'm sure you're here to read more about the outfit than my ramblings and deep thoughts of am in the morning, I just thought I'd throw in that my very-favorite-all-time-summer-hat is back in stock and can be found here.
It's hands down one of the best purchases I have ever made and if I can give you a word of advice, buy it now before the weather turns warm again. Every summer this hat is sold out and is nowhere to be found. Since it's only $44 and ah-mazing it's snapped up before you're ever able to get it. I about yelped when I saw it was back online.
Should I order a second one?
PS - Speaking of back-in-stock, popular items, the famous Chloe dupe wedges have been restocked in all sizes (and are currently 25% off)!!
