Condé Nast Traveler sent us to Maui for a long weekend of endless beaches, sticky volcanic sand, and consumption of coconuts in all forms possible. I love wearing dusty neutrals and nudes in the summer and this was the perfect time to break out my Minimale Animale bikini and Mason silk dress (which yes came back to life after taking a lot of saltwater from all angles) as well as Van Cleef & Arpels’ Gold Charms Watch. The last day we spent milling around on the Wailea side and I forced Chris to stop on the side of the road so I could sneak up on a crazy sweet old couple and interrupt their fishing/reading silent bliss hangout to take a photo of their license plate. They caught me red handed which was cool cause then they told me the story of how they left Big Sur in the ’70s for the islands and from then on couldn’t imagine living anywhere else, or selling the most wanted vanity plate in the lands. Which I love so much. Maui tip – buy picnic supplies at Mana Foods in Paia and then spend most of your time on Big Beach cause it’s a good place to be at every single time of day.
