I have my fair share of beach-y items that sit in the back of my closet until the warmest days or summer of tropical trips come up. I always try and buy pieces I can still wear in my everyday life- a breezy tunic to pair with jeans, espadrilles that will look cute with any of my dresses, etc. For our trip, I picked up this Miguelina linen skirt, which ended up being my favorite new piece that I look forward to wearing again and again. In Maui, I styled it two different ways- one beach look and one evening look.
Linen is one of my favorite fabrics to travel with for warmer climates. It’s light and airy and looks good even when a little wrinkled. During the day, I wore my Migulina skirt as a beach coverup over my Monday Swimwear bikini. Even after a little salt, water and sun, it stayed in perfect condition. I just slipped all of my other beach accessories into my Kayu tote and pulled my hair into a high pony to beat the heat.
After freshening up inside, I switched into this simple white James Perse tank to go with my linen skirt and added these lace up espadrilles for dinner at Hali’imaile General Store (delicious spot on the island!). I twisted my salty beach hair into a top knot and added a little blush and lip balm for a natural beauty look. I ended up wishing I would have brought a wrap or lightweight cashmere sweater with me for the cool evening breeze.
