This post is coming a little later than I would have liked for it to, but better late than never am I right?

About a month ago, my best friend and I visited Kauai! I had never been to any of the Hawaiian Islands before this trip, but after seeing how beautiful Kauai was I definitely want to venture out and see some of the other amazing destinations the islands have to offer. 

CLICK HERE to watch the full Instagram story highlight of our trip! 

Many of you followed our trip on Instagram and I got a lot of questions about the things we did, places we ate, etc., so I figured I would write a full guide with all the details of the trip. We were there for six days total and I feel like it was exactly the right amount of time to squeeze in everything we wanted to do. We stayed in Princeville on the North shore, but ventured out quite a bit to explore the whole island.

THINGS TO DO

1. Rent a jeep and drive around with the top down 

Seriously, if you rent a car it's 100% worth the upgrade to a Jeep W...

Raise your hand if you're an over-packer.

I am definitely raising my hand. No matter how long my trip may be, I always end up bringing things I know I won't actually end up wearing. Haven't worn something in 4 years? Bring it, because there's a 0.1% chance I might want to wear it sometime during the next 6 days... right?

Even thought I am guilty of overpacking, there are always several basic items that always make it in to my suitcase no matter where I am going. Here are 12 wardrobe items you won't want to leave your house without throwing in your bag.

1. A plain white tank top.

That can go under ANYTHING. You never know when that new top you bought will be a little more sheer than you anticipated - having something to wear underneath always comes in handy.

2. A tote bag.

For the beach, to take on a hike, or even use as a purse.

3. Nude wedges.

These match EVERYTHING. Most of the time, I only bring nude sandals...

 It's almost summer which means... time to pull out your old summer clothes or maybe even take yourself on a little shopping spree to refresh your wardrobe. If you're anything like me, you want putting together an outfit to be easy. Rompers and jumpsuits are my favorites for one reason: they're one piece. 

Being 5'10" is nice, but it doesn't come without its drawbacks. One being, rompers and jumpsuits are often times too short.

My legs AND torso are long, so finding a romper that isn't too short and a jumpsuit that fits the length of my torso is sometimes a struggle. Here are a few tips I've picked up on finding rompers and jumpsuits that are actually long enough (and a few of my top picks).

Look for ruffles

Rompers with ruffles on the bottom not only make them look longer, they may actually be longer. Not to mention, ruffles have become super popular lately and are being seen more and more in summer trends. I love a long sleeve...
