I don’t know about you, but once the temps start dropping I’m always looking to add more faux leather to my wardrobe. Leather is weather and holiday appropriate and one of the best things to wear to transform and elevate your outfit. Because faux leather has been on my radar, I’ve rounded up some of the best from around the web. I most definitely will be adding this pair pants to my closet (it has amazing reviews), I could not recommend this light jacket enough (incredibly soft and good quality), and I’ve heard great things about this number. And, how great would this dress be for a holiday party or date night?
Have you picked up any faux leather pieces this season yet?
Our little cottage we stayed at on Weke Rd near Hanalei Bay Beach
I said yes to the dress all the way from Kauai. I celebrated, can you tell?

The bride gave all the women these cute Lilly Pulitzer insulated beach totes. Cute, right?
We hiked up the Kalalau Trail and the views were breathtaking!
We made it to the Hanakapiai beach before we turned back.
This was our favorite beach at the end of the road, Ke’e beach. The water was so clear.
Lived off these tacos from Tropical Taco. #sogood
Headed south to Salt Pond Beach to escape the rain.
This Nasty Gal dress was super cute when it wasn’t all wrinkled lol.
Also lived on the most amazing all fruit smoothies.
Our backyard view was pretty killer.

Congrats to Becky and Jason ♥
Mike and I spent last week in Kauai with family to celebrate the marriage of Mike’s stepsister Becky, and now husband Jason. Both Mike and I had never been to Hawaii, so not only were we excited to take a much needed vacation, but to also explore the tropical island. Other than the rain and 100 mosquito bites (that’s what tropical weather will do to you), we had an amazing time. We stayed in the cutest cottage in Hanalei Bay, went to the beach everyday, hiked Kalalau Trail (the views were breathtaking), visited several beautiful beaches, watched the sunset at the St. Regis, and spent time body surfing the waves. I tried surfing once, but the waves were intimating to say the least, so I just rode them in laying down. I’m not typically an ocean kinda girl, so I was pretty proud of myself, ha! I will say, anywhere you turn, the views in Kauai are pretty spectacular.
If you’re looking to go to Hawaii and avoid all the touristy things, I would highly recommend visiting Kauai and staying in Hanalei Bay. There’s more of that local vibe going on and all around more relaxing.

I’m kicking off my Holiday Gift Guide series with one of my favorites, Gifts Under $100. I’m sure you’ve been bombarded with products already, but I want to let you know that everything in my gift guides are either something I own and love, would love to receive, or would love to give. I definitely try to keep the rounds ups true to my style and consistent to what you see on this blog regularly. So, if you’re looking to give or snatch up something for yourself that’s classic and versatile, be sure to stay tuned for gift guides over the next couple of weeks.
And if anyone of my friends for family members are reading this, I wouldn’t mind a pair of these, this little striped number, or this monogrammed piece under my tree (wink, wink).
