Our Five Favorite Pins of the Week // Island in the Sun

Right now, life’s a beach.

Last week? Oh, last week seemed to be filled with sniffles and chills and more boxes of tissues than we’d like to count. That “thing going around” got to us, and while some good R&R never hurts, if we don’t see that little red Netflix logo for a long while, it would still be too soon.

The remedy is that we’ve shipped off to paradise this week. Aida’s saying “aloha” to Hawaii, which means we’re saying “well hello there” to some vicarious vacation time on Pinterest. Imagine the salt in the air, sand in your hair, coconut in hand, and the clearest blue water ever seen. Imagine tropical iced tea with a garnish of pineapple picked up 5 minutes from where it was picked itself.

You guys, before we get down to partying this weekend, we need bring up something first: who made the rule about “no white after Labor Day”?

You guys. This rule is so not doing it for us. Whoever first made that declaration clearly did not live in California; nor did they understand the power of white skinny jeans. White is a color, not a season, and really, how can you stop with all the white after seeing this week’s five favorite pins? So here’s what we’re thinking: use the excuse to throw an amazing, all-white themed party to send off summer in style. Then go ahead and break the “rules” by wearing your white skinnies and sneaks on Tuesday, September 2, and every day after that—we’re pretty sure they’d compliment a pumpkin spice latte, too.
