It’s Aloha Friday, and time to pack for Hawaii!

I’ll get to be with my entire family in a beach house for a week, which means lots of lounging and sun time (plus a dinner at Nobu!). So as long as I’ve got my beachwear and a few dresses, I’m good to go…

1. Joie “Pinot” blouse, $168  / 2. Ray-Ban aviators, $150  / 3. **Gold & Gray mini agate arrowhead necklace, $120 & long gold spike necklace, $99 ** / 4. Laundry by Shelli Segal bikini, $130 / 5. Blank Denim cutoff shorts, $78 / 6. Alice+Olivia “Arlen” dress, $297 / 7. Eugenia Kim hat, $265 / 8. Velvet by Graham & Spencer maxi dress, $178 / 9. Bobbi Brown “Beach” oil, $30 / 10. Wildfox “Take Me to the Beach” coverup, $98 / 11. Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent bag, $85 / 12. Splendid flip-flops, $49 / 13. Sam Edelman sandals, $125 (also in black)

But I was so disappointed to learn that Bobbi Brown discontinued her “Beach” sunscreen spray! I love it so much I even wear it when I go out on warm summer nights. (Thankfully, I still have some left and will cherish every last drop.) I will have to give the oil a try next.

** And when I return, I’ll be hosting a GIVEAWAY of one of the Gold & Gray necklaces above!!! **

Have a great weekend!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. Yeay! I love Gold and grey! And love everything in your packing list! I’m so excited about your trip! You deserve this time-off and time to spend with your loved ones. We are leaving for Mexico next week…to the beach! ooh…can’t wait either. xx

  2. Love your style Erika- I would wear all of this, vacation or not! Hawaii is so beautiful and always relaxing. You will have the best time!

  3. love it all and must have the oil. Went to the link and they say that it is so popular that each customer may order no more than 6 units every 30 days!! must be insanely good for them to have to limit it…can’t wait to try it!
