This is my first trip to Hawaii ( see my list of things to do in Honolulu / Oahu ) and I am staying a full two weeks. Though I am spending the majority of February in Oahu the weather will be warm; a welcomed juxtaposition to northern California's dark, stormy, and colder winter. I felt so inspired by the light and spring like colors that I themed my packing palette around it ( similar to my Spring Capsule Wardrobe ). When traveling light I choose a color palette. Pieces are easier to mix and match; furthering the flexibility of outfits-akin to a capsule wardrobe. Moreover, I attempt to bring items that serve dual purposes- such as the beach hair and body sprayI am most excited about my newest purchase of The Beach People's "Roundie" Beach Towel. I've wanted one for years and finally bought one and am 100% thrilled. It doubles as a blanket or towel and is large enough to sprawl out with a book and picnic ( No paid advertising here! Just a GIANT fan!!! Haha ) .
