Mondays and Tuesdays are usually Ryan’s and my mutual days off so we like to get out and explore our favorite places, as well as sometimes stumble across new ones. Last week we headed to the UH Manoa campus and hung out in the Japanese garden. There was basically nobody else there with the exception of a couple of women who were drawing on the lawn. It’s a peaceful little place with woods and a creek on one side, a small temple, and a little waterfall in the middle.
I got this China print dress from Ann Taylor Loft in May and wore it to my graduation. Little did I know I’d get so much use out of it on a day-to-day basis as well. It’s been such a hot summer that I can’t stand to wear sleeves or anything too long on the bottom so this is a nice go-to option.
I also brought out one of my favorite hats to keep the sun off of my face. I got this hat from a Spanish store called Oysho while studying in Rome about a year and a half ago. I love that it came with three different colored ribbons that you can change out as you please. I chose the blue ribbon to match my dress but oftentimes I wear it with no ribbon at all.
On another note, I apologize for the time gap between this post and the last. I have been so busy packing and moving into the new apartment. Hopefully as soon as the move is complete I will be able to nail down a consistent post schedule. Thanks for bearing with me!
