The Trip / The Outfit: Kauai in Winter

Today’s The Trip / The Outfit is a double feature!  I was so inspired by the beautiful island of Kauai and the photographs by Michael Fenichel that I decided to put together two outfits for my imagined trip to the island during the winter rainy months.  I would probably stay at the Hanalei Surfboard House, which comes highly recommended by my parents.  I would pack light and bring clothing pieces that are versatile and functional.

The first look is for a day exploring the island shops and a casual dinner (maybe at Tacos Al Pastor, which is supposed to be amazing).  The dress is easy to throw on over your bathing suit and I included a lightweight cotton jacket with a hood for sudden showers (it won’t protect you completely, but it will help).  The necklace adds some glamour to the casual look for dinner and the bag is perfect to take you from the beach to shopping.

The second look takes advantage of the amazing rain forests and landscapes on the island.  My trip would certainly include some adventure.  Maybe a helicopter ride over the mountains, or a hike through the rain forests or to hidden beaches.  There are some amazing hikes on the island ranging from beginner to a more advanced trail.  I included a GoPro adventure camera to capture your trip.  A lightweight rain jacket is essential not only for sudden showers, but for cooler vistas and canyons.  I prefer to summer hike in a sport sandal that provides protection for my feet and grip, but also lets them breath.
