sequins by day

Well it's that time of year again...that time when I wear sequins over and over and over again. I'll try not to bore you with the monotony, but really who gets tired of sparkly things? I wore this particular top by day for lunch and by night (with black pants and a black leather jacket) to see  my boo Trey Songz. This weekend I'm going to see my other boo, Rick Ross, and I might just have to break out the SEQUIN LEGGINGS for him ;)

wearing: j crew cardigan, sequin top (WANT THIS ONE) & TOOTHPICK JEANS, dollhouse leopard "slippers" (SIMILAR), nordstrom necklace, MICHAEL KORS TORTOISE WATCH

urban maxi

I've had this maxi skirt for a few months now, and I am wearing it every chance I get..with boots, with heels, with flats, with sandals, with sweaters, with tank tops and so on and so forth. It's so versatile, it flows really well, the warm color is perfect for the cooler months, and the best part is, it's ON SALE right now (in a variety of colors)! I'm currently on a shopping diet, but I might have to indulge.

worn: out & about in maui

simply chic takes maui

(the resort)
So, my trip to Maui was somewhat of a last minute decision and my goodness I'm so glad I went for it (#YOLO). It was paradise for sure!! If you haven't been, put it on your bucket list, and stay at the MARRIOTT MAUI OCEAN CLUB in Kaanapali. It's so fabulous that I would have been totally fine if I never left the resort and frolicked around in my bikini and hat until the sunset everyday, but obviously I'm glad I did get out and explore other parts of the island. If you follow me on INSTAGRAM you read about and saw my 10,000 ft. trek up Haleakala Volcano. AMAZING!!! The trip also consisted of good shows, good food, good drinks and good company :) I really could have used an extra day or 3, but I am more than thankful for what I had. 

Have you been to Maui?

various shades of purple

A quick post because I'm still recuperating from all of last night's excitement

Did you go out or stay in and watch the election results? Four years ago I foolishly watched by myself. I clearly didn't want to do that again, so this year I threw a small dinner party. Good food, good wine, good company! An all around good night, but now I need a nap, and someone to come clean for me :) 

P.S.-Sorry for all the election related INSTAGRAM photos last night ;)
