Hawaiian Style

Today I’m off to a work trip to Hawaii, and of course I am super excited.

I have two days of vacation on the front end, and I was contemplating taking a “Magnum, P.I.” tour in a replica helicopter from the show.

At $500 an hour (per person!), though, it seemed a bit steep.

I had to laugh when the conference sent a link about “What to Wear in Hawaii.” Here’s a quote:

The traditional Hawaiian women’s dress is the muumuu, which hangs from the shoulders and fits loosely around the body. Women can wear them to most occasions and fit right in.

So, to recap, I will be dressing like this for the next week:

Dear Santa

I know I haven’t been good enough to get all of this (not by a long shot!), but here’s my dream list to find under the tree on Christmas morning.

Jonathan Adler “Vice” Canister

I love Jonathan Adler! This ceramic jar is just one of a series called “Vices,” but this is definitely the one meant for me.

Clare Vivier Flat Clutch

I also can’t get enough of Clare Vivier. This flat clutch comes in a few different star prints, but I like this navy one the best. And I still am hoping for this bright blue bag, complete with monogram:

AVF Chiclet Candy Bowl

Next up: This hot pink acrylic candy bowl from Alexandra Von Furstenberg. It comes in two sizes, but I like the smaller one better. The colors are fantastic, too! I’d secretly love to also open up an apple green one and have a pair.

Kate Spade Gloves

Aren’t these Kate Spade gloves funny?

High Fashion Rubber Stamp Set

I still like to send snail mail notes to friends and this cute stamp set would really jazz up the envelopes or the notecards themselves.

Speaking of office supplies, I always need notepads like the swirly one on the right. And really, who wouldn’t want a jumbo cupcake scented eraser?

This needlepoint pillow is also from Jonathan Adler. The same one was in the amazing bungalow that we stayed in last summer at the best hotel in the world, the Parker Palm Springs.
