 To tell you the truth, I totally spaced on my leftover Hawaii pictures! So glad I remembered these as it was one of our best days there!

While in Hawaii, we saw a ton of Humpback Whales. It was probably one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Everywhere you looked, they were jumping out of the water or splashing around, and I could have sat for hours just waiting and watching for them. Since taking Marine Biology in high school, I kind of have an obsession with sea life, whales in particular, so I was ridiculously excited. They are amazing, gigantic, beautiful and majestic creatures and seeing them in the wild is really awe-inspiring. Yeah, I'm a nerd:) My family decided that we wanted to get up close and personal and went on a little whale watching excursion. We saw a ton of whales, but getting pictures was a little tricky. I've included a few below, but they aren't the best quality. Honestly though, pictures don't do it justice. To sum it up...whales are AMAZING!

It was a pretty hot and muggy day, so I opted to wear a lightweight southwestern printed romper. I purchased this romper over 2 years ago and it remains one of my favorite pieces. So wishing I would have bought the other color! I put on a pretty beaded necklace, sandals, and a fedora to keep my hair in control during my whale watching adventure.

Mom, sissy and I watching for our friends...the whales.


  1. I don't know which one I love the most, that you are in Hawaii, your outfit or the dolphins. :)


  2. Love your playsuits, and the view is beautiful. Have a great vacation dear

  4. You're so tan! I'm in need of a nice vacation haha love the romper!

  5. First off, I absolutely LOVE the romper. They're one of my favorite things to wear in the summer (although they are a pain if you have to pee haha). Second, I've ALWAYS wanted to go whale watching. I have a feeling it'd just be mind blowing to see in person!

  6. Oh man, Ashley, that's so awesome that you were able to see whales! I can only imagine how awe-inspiring that'd be. And they're so huuuuuge!

    And the romper is so cute on you--and I bet it was comfy all day long and nice to wear on a boat so you didn't flash anyone (were it a dress!).

  7. Okay, whale watching is up there on my list of things to do! It looks SO COOL!! And that romper is freaking adorable- as are you!


  8. That is so incredible! You got to do whale watching? That is so on my list of things to do. Ahhh, so cool! Haha, and I bet, you just can't capture that sort of thing on camera and compare it to the experience.
    Love the adorable romper, the tribal print is so fun and summery.
