I haven’t hardly thought about Hawaii honestly…

My thoughts have been elsewhere, and it has all seemed SO far away. So, it is crazy for me to think that I leave this week!  Honestly, I kind of feel guilty to be leaving.  Not because I think it is wrong to leave my kids, because I think that can be very healthy for a family  every once in a while.  I am more feeling guilty because I want to bring everyone I know with me, so they can enjoy the beauty also.  I want to bring family, and friends, and even my blog readers. 

Alas, all I can do is take pictures and share it with you here.

I told Jon that I wasn’t planning on packing for our anniversary.  I really meant it when I said that I wanted to just fly to Hawaii, and buy the first Muu-Muu I found, grab a pretty drink with an umbrella in the top, and sit on the beach.  I only required a book, sunglasses, and a towel.

Then I tried to go to bed last night, and all I could think about was what I was going to pack.  Or not pack.  I am very summer slow when it comes to clothes.  I am great at putting together outfits for Fall, Winter, or Spring, but there is just something about summer that confuses me.  I can’t layer, like I like and boots just look kind of odd by the ocean.  I do love sandals, but they don’t go well with my pea coats.  I get all hung up on my white legs that I will need to spray tan, just to look like I haven’t just emerged from an igloo in Alaska.  So, my frantic unplanned shopping came more from desperation than planning.  I had to rush order everything, because I broke my own rule of not packing.

So, for fun, I thought I would show you the outfits I put together.  Most of it I have, some of it I have that looks just like it.  If you enjoy clothes, I just found a REALLY fun website called Polyvore where you can tag things you love onto a board, and put outfits together.  It’s kind of like Pinterest, but for outfits!  yummy…and so addicting.  It’s like playing dressup!

Without further delay, here are some of the outfits I plan on taking with me to sit under the palm trees.  I plan on dancing in them, and laying in the sun.
