    Beach Villas at Ko Olina / Part 1

    **This post is sponsored by Beach Villas at Ko Olina. As always, all opinions are my own.**


    The Beach Villas at Ko Olina resort is great — lovely pools, luxury rooms, excellent lagoon for swimming and snorkeling.  A relaxed and very quiet resort.  Not crowded.  It’s great!  (They also have this super awesome rock wall water fall! 😉 Had to snap a few pictures.)

    The grounds are super clean and absolutely lovely gardens.

    The mornings and evenings are the Beach Villas at Ko Olina are quiet so it is really nice to unwind.  It is super nice to be out of the of the busy Honolulu area, but is still close enough to in to Honolulu or Waikiki for activities.

    If you are looking for a laid back stay in Hawaii I would highly recommend the Beach Villas at Ko Olina.  As they would probably be your speed.

    It’s a location that allows you to enjoy the Hawaii you always dreamed about as it is not cluttered with commercialism. At the same time, shopping areas were all within a few miles. The location is very peaceful and the lagoons were not overly crowded. It was not unusual to see folks relaxing on the balcony because of the awesome views.

    I tried getting in the Hawaiian spirit everyday by putting flowers in my hair everyday!

    Sandals: I am obsessed with my bow sandals. They are seriously perfect sandals for the summer.  As they can get wet and not get ruined!  There are so many cute options out there right now! Here are my favorites! Century 21ShopBop, Nordstrom, and Nordstorm/

    I am instantly drawn to any place with colored tile so I was super excited when I spotted these tiled stairs and had to sit to take a picture! (Insert “information desk emoji” haha If you have a Mac and have iChat connected on it go to your emojis and hover over the girl with her one hand sticking up to her ear…iChat refers to it as “information desk emoji”!  I was surprised to see myself!  But that would be the emoji I would insert here if I could!) I digress.  So I love tiled stairs and sat myself down to capture my outfit. This tunic (or I suppose dress as I am wearing it) is basically fall to me in dress/tunic form. With the colors and patterns and the cut of the dress/tunic I feel like a little autumn leaf when I wear it! :):)
