Top: NYDJ (sale) | Skirt: GB | Shoes: Similar | Earrings: Kendra Scott

You’re going to want this skirt in your closet, pronto! It is the perfect price point and you can pretty much wear any top with it. Fun skirts are so in right now and this one is no exception. I went with a more neutral look for you office chicks that hustle hard in corporate and want to still look cute. This sheer button up top comes in 9 different colors and on sale today! I went with black when I was working in corporate America, so I could pair it with just about anything. Sadly, these ankle strap pointy heels are sold out and I can’t seem to find anything like them. These are basic black pumps that are similar if you would like to check them out. It is always sad to me when I find a good find and there is nothing like it to share with the world (i.e. these shoes)! I also added some subtle color with Kendras to pull in some dark purple.

I hope you all are having a happy Thursday! I have had such a great week thus far celebrating with love ones. Birthday weeks are the best ever! Yesterday my workout girls Elly & Ashely took me out to Tinys.  Today I am continuing the celebration with my loves Brittany and Shelbi. That is one thing I absolutely love about the blogging world, the girls I get to do life with. I am thankful for all the birthday wishes and love y’all! Thanks for stopping by buttercups.

Swim Suit: Similar (on sale with code: INTHEFAM) | Shorts: Levi | Shoes: Hari Mari | Hat: BP ($22)

I don’t know about you all, but I am not one to wear fancy sandals to the beach. So when I came across these Hari Mari flip flops and thought they would be perfect for my trip to Hawaii! They are made for simplicity, comfort, and won’t get ruined in the water. I am not a fan of the plastic color flip flops, just not my taste, so these are perfect and durable. I plan to take these flips on all our beach trips, river trips, boating outings or just wear them on casual days. They also come in many different colors and have a mens line, which can be found here.



I paired these shoes with a one piece because I have had a mad crush on one piece swims lately. This exact swim is no longer available online but a similar style can be found and luckily on sale.  Shop bop is having a huge sale so I recommend checking out the sale before your favorite finds sell!



This was taken at one of my favorite spots in all of Hawaii. We went to Lanikai beach twice on our trip because the water is unbelievable. They say it’s the locals beach but it truly is a hidden gem in Oahu that I will never forget. Sadly, Wakiki beach is filled with people, tourists, and trash. You won’t be sorry visiting Lanikai beach if you ever are on the island. I still am dreaming about it!

Popover Maxi: Way-In (other color here & here) | Shoes: Similar | Earrings: Kendra Scott | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

When I saw this dress, the first thing I thought is “I have to take that to Hawaii with me”! & that is exactly what I did, but sadly I waited to long and now only a few sizes are left in this dress. Luckily, this dress comes in white or black here and another floral print here. I am not sure why they all aren’t linked together but I can’t believe this dress is only $52. It has a silicon lining in the bust so it won’t slide off easily. The print on this dress is the cutest I have seen. I have been iffy about maxi dresses lately but something about this one really did catch my eye. I paired it up with my Kendra’s to go with the light pink and little to no accessories were needed. I think this dress would be perfect for a beach trip or attending a wedding shower. For any occasion, one of these maxi dresses are worth the $52 to be in your closet.

Happy Tuesday y’all! We just got back from our trip, hence the late blog post (sorry!). It is always bitter sweet coming back home but this trip I really wanted to stay. Something about Hawaii makes me so happy. Be sure to check back everyday this week for more Hawaii look. I may share our travel diaries for those interested or recommendations. I would love to hear whatever you are interested in learning about on our trip! Mahola.

Crushing on Hawaii

Dress Up Buttercup // A Houston-based fashion and inspiration blog developed to daily inspire your own personal style by Dede Raad | Crushing on Hawaii Finds

^(just ordered, comes in white too) 
Sun Glasses (Chloe)
^(perfect for the beach)
 
I introduce to you the items I have been crushing on for our trip to Hawaii. If you are planning on going somewhere tropical then this is your guide. I am obsessed with cute beach bags but they never fit in my suitcase. We try to only pack a carry on no matter where we go so you can imagine how tough packing could be for me. My procrastination also gets in the way when I packed for this trip literally 30 mins before we left for our flight. If I could though, I would have fit all these goodies in my bag. Especially this bathing suit that I forgot to order in time so I could bring it on the trip. Preparation is key when packing and I am the worlds worst! This towel is also darling that allows you to pick the name of the alphabet, so darn cute! These flip flops are so practical for the beach and luckily I ordered them just in time for our trip! I don’t have to worry about not getting them wet because HELLO that is what the beach is for. They also go with all my beachwear outfits which is perfection. Next is this straw hat that is perfect to hid away from the sun. I love all the creative big floppy hats that have came out but sometimes less is more.
 
Thanks for following along loves! If you are planning a vacation, honeymoon, or know a friend that is, I would recommend checking out these finds of mine (tag a friend). Today is an oh so happy day of 4/4, MY BIRTHDAY PEEPS. I am turning 24 on 4/4 so I count that as a golden birthday since I was to young for my 4th birthday to remember. I am so blessed I get to celebrate my birthday in Hawaii with my honeyboo. He always takes me somewhere tropical for my birthday and I am so forever grateful. We have been on 3 hikes and 3 beaches in 3 days and it makes my heart melt. Hikes and the beach are my absolute favorite thing to do.
