Happy New Year! I still can’t quite believe 2015 is over, but a brand new year is always a welcome and exciting change. Even though technically it’s just another day, there is something so refreshing about the idea of a re-charge and a clean slate. I’m excited to share a few posts over the next week from our Christmas trip to Maui. It was our first tropical Christmas and I loved every single thing about it!
One thing Thomas and I always research when traveling is where the best spots to watch sunrise and sunset are. After arriving to Maui, we found Maluaka Beach online and headed over just before golden hour. It ended up being a total gem and the perfect spot to watch a beautiful sunset across the water. The beach was almost completely empty, with just a few couples and families sitting out waiting for the sun to go down.
After spending our first day on the island at Big Beach, we headed home to freshen up and shower before dinner. I couldn’t wait to slip on this Faithfull The Brand dress from the moment I bought it. I love breezy pieces like this while on vacation- minimal accessories required and it can be worn as a beach coverup or a dress for dinner and drinks. The high slits and off the shoulder style make it perfect for a warm evening.
We got lucky with our first sunset being one of the most memorable from the trip. We ended up bookmarking this spot and came back later in the week during the day, with it still being one of the most quiet beaches we’d visited. Back home in rainy San Francisco has me wishing I was sitting on this beach again, with my toes in the sand and a warm glow from the setting sun on my face.
