Waikiki at Dusk

M&S Dress (now on sale)
 Primark Necklace, H&M Shoes (old )
  
Hey lovelies! I'm starting my Hawaii series with a little outfit post, which should 100% be called 'How not to take beach pictures at dusk', we definitely learnt a lesson looking back at these pics, the idea and intent was there but with the lighting and the focus being all out, it totally killed it. Apparently sunset is like 7pm in Hawaii, which totally threw us out because we're used to 9pm sunsets in the summer over here buuuut at least we know for next time!
    
Now, the dress isnt it pretty, i went all heart-eyed when i saw it and just knew i had to have it. Its totally not something i'd normally go for but tbh when i was in O'ahu i hardly wore anything like what i normally do, black just wasnt an option and i found myself wanting to wear blue denim shorts and floaty dresses, the warm air did something to me...


Anyway, this is the dress I ended up wearing to my parents vow renewal on Magic Island, which was the cutest and most romantic thing I think I've ever witnessed, my dad surprised my mum, and well all of us, by arranging it all to surprise her after knowing she'd been wanting to do it for a while. It was the most adorable thing, sunset with Waikiki and Diamond Head watching over and the cutest little set up, oh gosh, in the words of my closest friends #RelationshipGoals

Anyway, the dress, the dress, i keep getting distracted but the dress. I found it and managed to grab it in my size the day before we flew out, its a crepe kind of fabric which is super cooling and breezy, perfect for warmer evenings. It has side splits to the knee (I've pulled it up here cause, well, ocean) and its not fitted so i wore it with a belt for the vows but i really wish i hadnt, it wasnt as flattering as just letting the flow but i still received loads of compliments, I just wish the pictures we took could really do it justice because its beaut!


Ignoring my sightly swollen ankles, what do you think of the dress, are you into palm tree print?
