hawaii packing list

We are jet setting off to Hawaii soon and it could not come at a better time! I’ve been curating more spring pieces and dreaming of warmer weather as we experience yet another snowstorm and frigid temps. So, I thought before I shoot these for the blog I’d give you a sneak peek of just a few pieces I’m excited to style on the beautiful island…

I can’t wait to follow along on your trip! We went in December for Christmas and had the best time, it really is so fun finding “Hawaii pieces” to wear, those printed pants are going to be perfection 🙂

As for your flamingo, you should do a Hawaiian name, how fun would that be?! Here are a few that could work:
Malana (means “light” or “buoyant”) hahaha
Maulana (means “constantly floating”) again, I die haha
Nanea (means “to enjoy or relax”)
Wailani (means “heavenly water”)

Jerrica Leib

I would call her Rosie the flamingo! I hope you have fun in Hawaii! I am so jealous!☺️💕🌴🌊

Vanessa Keating

Just saw someone else said Rosie so I don’t know if mine counts! Next choice: Gertrude.

Christine Curtis

I love that float! You should name her “Lilo” which is Hawaiian for “generous one” and the heroine in the movie.

South on Broadway

Aloha-mingo or Minnie are my 2 initial thoughts. ha! Or maybe Goldie? Regardless, the photos will be fabulous with her floating in the pool!

– Jaime


Love your pics for Hawaii! Especially the flower printed bodysuit. You should name her Wanda.


Love this swan! And am obsessed with Essie so this is great. So for the swan name, I think you should go with “Oh-swan-a” like the Hawaiian “ohana” which means family, but clearly, because she is a swan and the newest member of your family, “oh-swan-a” is the logical option! 😂🌺


I vote you name her Freda, Freda the Flamingo. Besides being a seriously cool name, Freda means ‘peaceful ruler’ and I feel like Flamingos are fairly peaceful creatures 🙂 Have a great time in Hawaii, those islands are very near and dear to my 💓


Looking at that rose gold flamingo, Penelope comes to mind. Close second, Flo the flamingo. Hope you pick mine! Enjoy Hawaii!


Looking forward to seeing your looks from Hawaii! I thought maybe you could name her “Nessie” (like the Loch Ness monster), it sounds a bit like my favourite nail polish brand too! 😀

Arielle M Kadish

Loved this post, and I love how proud you are of your religion and how it guides you. As a religious person myself, I am constantly inspired by you! I would name my flamingo Flaminco!!

Elisabeth Bender

I love the name Bella! Bella is beautiful and so are flamingos! 🙂

Camila polo

I’m the worst with names buuuuut considering you’re going to Hawaii I’d say call it Lilo!

Missy (kats) Cobban

In honor of your Essie giveaway I think it would be appropriate to name your flamingo Lovie after Essie’s “true flamingo pink” color Lovie Dovie. I know my polish colors way too well ; )

You look so cute in the striped dress, Stephanie! Can you tell me where your neutral-colored cosmetics cases are from? They totally caught my eye and look SO soft! I hope you’re having a blast in Hawaii! You looked so adorable in that floral dress you posted on IG!
