My essential wardrobe pieces for my Maui life…
Ts & tunics in a super soft material – Tanks or v neck ts in jersey or super soft cotton in white, grey or black are the cornerstone of my wardrobe. I wear them under a jacket or cardigan to work, with shorts on the weekend. A tunic with a nice drape on top and fitted on the bottom is great with skinny jeans or leggings.
Denim – I couldn’t pick just one style, I love them all. Faded bootcuts, baggy rolled up boyfriends, skinnies and cutoffs all get equal play in my wardrobe. I also love a denim jacket with rolled up sleeves over a printed jersey dress or skirt.
Cardigans – I’m not talking about downtown lady or preppy buttoned cardigans. I prefer the slouchy jersey pieces which are long enough to cover the booty either with a skinny or elbow length dolman sleeve. These are great with skinnies, ankle boots and a soft T.
Jackets – I love an army cargo with jeans, a lightweight leather hoodie for those trips upcountry or a printed silk kimono style when I need to brighten my day.
Maxidresses in soft cotton or jersey – A well cut maxi dress can be worn dressed up or down.
Scarves – Colorful linen and cotton printed scarves dress up my Ts and a simple black cashmere wrap keeps me warm in the air conditioned day job when I’ve got a dolman sleeve style on and can’t wear a cardigan. I also love a mini silk scarf tied around the wrist or a handbag strap.
Platform wedge heels – I’m only 5’1″ and don’t have much of an arch so many high heels are tough for me to wear. I can wear 4 inch wedges all day and night.
Slippas – I prefer the simple black rubba slippa by Havaianas but also love my Birkenstock Suede Gizehs in sand.
Wrap bracelets – Beaded boho wrap bracelets can be wrapped to fit a petite wrist and look great worn in multiples. I love that these bracelets can be sparkly but look very handmade and organic at the same time.
I don’t wear business attire very often now. There was a time pencil skirts and little black dresses would’ve topped this list.
