As much of a reluctant tourist as I was to Hawaii, countless others have fallen in love with these islands for a good amount of reasons, the top of which has to be those perfect stretches of beach, the endless blue that extends from the water to the sky.

I have fond attachments to Hawaii. Apollo Robbins kidnapped me more than 3 years ago and proposed to me in Maui. In the middle of the Pacific, in that impeccably breezy air and those golden sunsets, where the island spirit sneaks into the most cynical of persons, the billowing winds expand your soul and the shimmering ocean beckons you to say yes. So I did, it didn’t hurt that I also had a man with whom I was deeply in love.

It probably won’t surprise many of you to learn that my favorite silhouette is the crop top paired with a maxi skirt (seen here & here). However, lately I’ve noticed an emerging pattern of a possible contender, the kimono wrap top with slim silk pants. I seem to be collecting a few ensembles of this combination, to indulge an aesthetic as well as a lifestyle. The silk pants are so accommodating to my traveling life, and the kimono wraps offer prints as poetic as spring picnics with your first crush. Forgive me if I can’t seem to resist carving them into my life, and onto the blog.
I’ve had this sheer black blouse with the lemons and limes print for almost 15 years. It has survived every closet purge, not because I’ve worn it often, but because I’ve always had a special instinct about it, as if even though I didn’t quite know how it fit into my outfits throughout the years, I always thought there may be a day I will find it a pairing. Sometimes clothing articles are like poems, some at first read don’t quite make sense to you, but you can’t quite forget them. You think about them throughout passing situations of your life, searching the passages, combing the lines and trying to find meaning. And then one day, someone or something happens to you, and the first thought to appear: a line from that poem.
I love having family meals, and thus this baked eggs recipe is perfect. Being able to share one pot of brunch goodness is a great way to begin Sundays.
