apparently, i decided to travel to hawaii on the hottest week in sf all year. and what seemed obvious to trade foggy weather for warm skies was quite the opposite of my arrival in honolulu.
hoping for a change in weather, things lightened up and we were able to catch some sun for an hour or so.. then our stroll down the strip of waikiki felt more like we were walking through a blizzard as we scurried through stores only to feel frozen coming from the damp weather into an ice cold air conditioned store- bad combination- and my thoughts for my return to hawaii would never enter my mind again! in all honesty, i was ready to go home by day 2 back to the bay.
but in all disappointment there is some light, and to my liking it made a terrific shopping spree at the ala moana shopping center. we took TheBus and the trolley, and i am reminded of all the reasons why I love coming here aside the beautiful weather. there's the inspiration of the beautiful japanese chicks flaring with so much style. i love everything about it- their funkiness, classiness, hip, fresh, effortless cool, all in their own unique way. not to mention their skin is clean, their hair is to die for, and for some reason they always look perfectly polished.
then there's the stores we don't have back at home, which never cease to fail me. however i will say 88 tees has been more of a miss than a hit for me. luckily there's a good lineup of my favorites spots like le grande marquet or spiral girl in the mall.
so with no tan after 2 days in hawaii, i'd say i'm still up. 4 more days to go and 3 nights.. lots and lots to do! :)
