This is a bucket list destination and I realize I'm privileged to have the ability to have gone, but Lanai, Hawaii was by far the most beautiful place I have ever visited. We stayed at the Four Seasons Lanai with our two daughters and our good friends and their two daughters and while we packed in a ton of activities while we were there, every moment was just so special. Every place we went was more beautiful than the next and the resort made you feel like royalty. It was heaven!
Dress hem lines have become longer and jean waists have become higher haha! I alluded to this above, but you need and want different things as you become older and are at different points in your life. When I was in my 20s and going out until 4am in New York City I was wearing much flashier and sharp outfits and now as a Mom of two in my mid-thirties I want silhouettes that are flattering, comfortable and still beautiful. The one thing that hasn't changed is my inclination towards preppier styles.
