What I wore for vacation in Hawaii

Hawaii vacation outfits Aritzia Daydreamer dress
An easy, breezy dress from Aritzia that truly lives up to its name: Daydreamer.


If you follow me on Instagram, you likely already know that I was recently in Hawaii. 

I was determined to pack for my week in paradise with only a carry-on suitcase — yet with enough clothes and bathing suits to look fresh every day. 

After so many months in turtlenecks and bulky sweaters, it felt good to peel off a few layers. And embrace a few bright colours and prints. 

Looking for a little outfit inspo for your next hot-weather vacation? Here's what I wore during my trip to Hawaii to help a little (I hope) with that. ;)

I embraced the soft shade of yellow of this H&M tank top and skirt. But, I also bought it in black (of course).

This linen midi shirt dress from the Canadian brand Sympli served me well during the week, doubling as the piece I donned for morning coffee runs — and an occasional beach coverup.

A new favourite outfit, these frilled Ganni shorts (past season) paired perfectly with this cotton H&M button-down.

A longtime favourite, this Aritzia column dress (past season) felt comfortable and chic. I'd highly recommend adding a similar style to your vacation wardrobe.
