the friday five

January 23, 2015

the friday five kiss kiss j.crew tee, distressed ankle jeans, snakeskin pumps, bracelet to layer, prada sunglasses M Loves M @marmar

  tee . jeans . sunglasses . bracelet .  pumps .

How cute is this KISS KISS VINTAGE TEE? I'm already starting to think about Valentine's Day and this shirt would be so perfect to get into the spirit. It has a laid back cool feel that would work well with some DISTRESSED ANKLE JEANS like the ones above. I've been so lazy recently about getting my jeans hemmed so I think ankle length is the way to go. The end up fitting perfectly!

A girl can never have too many BLACK SUNGLASSES, especially ones with this cool wire detail. It has a little masculine quality but it's cool enough for the girls!

While I love a classic, solid-colored shoe, it's hard to resist a fun pair like these SNAKESKIN PUMPS. They'd add a little personality to any outfit!

This FIREBURST BRACELET is the perfect finishing touch. I noticed that I have a lot of cuff bracelets and I'm starting to miss ones like these that are just super easy to wear and layer.

Have a great weekend everyone!

One great thing about living in Los Angeles is that you're never too far from the ocean. Matthew and I have been missing Hawaii and so we decided to take a drive over the weekend to see the water. Don't be fooled though. This water is ice cold! I wouldn't touch it without a very thick wetsuit, and even then it would be pushing it. Since it's always windier by the beach I wore this BLUE AND RED FLORAL SCARF from Sole Society. {Did you know they make super cute accessories as well as shoes?} I've been crushing on these POLKA DOT FLATS for so long {they come in two other colors too!}, and knew this navy color would go with so much. Navy is such a great color to pair with grays and browns, and I've even been wearing them with my blue denim as well! I threw my sunglasses and camera in this BUCKET BAG and was ready for a fun adventure with Matthew. We actually stumbled upon this spot accidentally by making a wrong turn. I was frustrated with my navigation, Matthew was telling me to make a rogue move, and then we found this sweet little spot! Love how it all worked out!

I've been wearing Sole Society shoes for so long {check out some other posts with them here!} so I was so happy to partner with them on this post. They have a ton of cute shoes right now too:

Happy Friday everyone!


hawaii photo diary- part 2

maui hawaii photo diary M Loves M @marmar
You guys, it's been 11 days since Maui! Not so long but let me tell you the island feels like a distant memory. Matthew and I were just talking about how much we missed it, saying, "we gotta go back!" {LOST reference anyone?} Sigh no matter how long you visit for, it never seems like enough time. Maybe that's why whenever we're in Hawaii we talk about moving there. Matthew would go in a heartbeat if he could get a job. He's such an island boy, as you'll see in the photo of him trying to knock a coconut out of a tree with a rock. I do love Hawaii, Maui in particular, and while I fantasize about living there I also wonder how my feelings toward the island would change. Would it become just home and no longer paradise? Would I miss the seasons? Would I get jaded by sunshine year round  and a deeper skin color? It sounds nice but I guess for now Hawaii will just have to be our favorite spot to vacation! I'm totally fine with that as long as we can take these trips a little more often.

Our road got blocked by a heard of cattle! We got out of our car to talk to one of the handlers and took some snaps of these cute animals. Matthew had never been so close to cows before so he especially loved it!

There were so many gorgeous waterfalls on the way to Hana!

Hope you enjoyed these photos from our trip! It was so fun and Matthew and I can't wait to go back. We're thinking about exploring another island next time, although we do love Maui. If you have another favorite let me know. I hear Kauai is absolutely gorgeous and even more tropical!
